“A wide variety of average hawker food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Most hawkers do the food way better than the spread here. The only offering that Straits Kitchen has is its halal certificate. There are not many places in Singapore having this cert and serving passable buffet spread.

If you are hosting some foreign guests with dietary concerns, this could be the place. However, I will definitely avoid this place on any other occasion. I would rather spend the money for a feast at a hawker as this place is way overpriced for the quality of food.

The location is good, right smack in the middle of Orchard Road.

“Great Variety & Diversity”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Over the years we have dined at the Straits Kitchen numerous times. Always enjoy the chance to try so many different styles & dishes. It is higher priced than going to the Hawker stalls, but a nice way to experience if you are not up for that. Recommended for those visiting Singapore for the first time, as it is easy way to be introduced to wide range of cusines found in Singapore.

“Fantastic way to try a bit of everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

A buffet lunch where we were able to sample all the different cuisines that Singapore has to offer! A huge variety of dishes cooked to order, friendly staff, lovely setting and terrific desserts. What more could you ask for?

“Best way to experience Hawker Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We wanted the hawker experience but not the heat of the outside stalls so this was a good alternative. Many options and we all tried something different. Was easy and delicious.

“Local Eats at pricey prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

The quality of the food is quite good, and the variety is enough to say tht one has tasted most local fare in one sitting, However, pls, if you can, aim to eat famous hawker centre food. Much cheaper prices at better taste (and maybe more calories ;) )
