This restaurant is sinful as the food variety is truly amazing. You can choose from hawker style roti prata to traditional western, Chinese food and full service of waffles and pancakes etc etc. one of the best buffets I have ever experienced in the world. Service is also excellent.

If you are into trying every bit of local food, this is the one stop place to it. High quality of food. It can be very crowded at lunch time, so come early. The food here is certified halal so muslim can feel happy to eat anything...
I brought my parents here and they were happy.

Friends and I had been trying for sometime to organise a visit to the Straits Kitchen at the Grand Hyatt in Scotts Rd Singapore after a friend highly recommending it, and the fact that it was halal.
We arrived at 6.30 to be met with what is the typical 6.30 pm buffet rush. The food was OK, usual Singaporean fare, including satay, Indian and Malay food. Most of the offerings were nothing special and could be equally found at local haunts. The crab though was very nice, if not messy (had to ask for a finger bowl), and the fish was very, very nice. Service was fine - but you mostly left to your own. Soft drinks were ridiculously priced - $7 for a coke. Note, even though halal, alcohol is available. The booth seats are a little difficult to get in and out of. Total cost, with 2 cokes and the usual taxes for four was $230. I wouldn't bother going back.

I wanted to take my two teenagers to one buffet meal during a short visit to Singapore.We had been to Raffles high tea previously and really enjoyed it but wanted something different.Tried researching on the internet and couldn't choose.A very nice taxi driver recommended Straits Kitchen at the Hyatt and it was excellent.The location was an easy walk from our hotel (York Hotel).

You need to book which I did by telephone.

There are a number of stations where you can see chefs preparing local food and they are happy to explain things to you.The Indian section was our favourite, great choice of varied Indian dishes.. They have a tandoori oven and a large round hotplate where they cook naan and murtabak while you watch.There are also sections of Chinese food (roast chicken and duck, made to order soup noodles), Indonesian food (popiah/ gadogado made to order, rojak) and Malaysian food (barebecued chicken/prawns, traditional satay you can watch being prepared).

There are fresh fruit juices included as well as a la carte drinks.For dessert there is fresh fruit and local desserts as well as ice creams/sorbets with a local flavour and my daughter's favourite ice kachang but gourmet style.

To cater to Muslim guests the restaurant is halal; no pork.

The food and service were great.The chefs were happy to explain the food.At 44 SGD ++ I thought it was great value.I would go back if I have the chance.

If you are looking for a true Singapore food experience you will be much better off going to one of Singapore's many traditional hawker centers.
We went as a large family group for dinner recently. Dinner cost a princely sum of $50 ++ a person. Food was good but not outstanding. Drinks (not even coffee or tea) was included in the price of the buffet! Service was mediocre and no better than at an average hawker centre, (perhaps it was part of the effort to make the experience "authentic".)
The Straits Kitchen is grossly over rated. Will we go again - no. Would we recommend it to anyone else - no.
