Straits Restaurant - Santana Row

Singapore for almost 200 years has been at the crossroads of Southeast Asia, where many cultures and nationalities live, work and more importantly, eat together. Singapore's cuisines logically reflect this cultural diversity. The four major culinary cultures -- Malaysian/Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and Nonya -- are in fact a blend of each other, creating a new cuisine that is unique and more complex in flavors and fragrances. Straits offers a menu that features the complexity of all these Singaporean cuisines in chef Chris Yeo's unique interpretation. This beautiful Santana Row location opened in January 2003.

"Made a reservation for 6 for Administrative Professional's Day. Arrived on time - almost empty restaurant, but our table was not ready. Took a few minutes to get our table set up. One wait person for entire inside of restaurant made for very slow service. Two meals arrived 10 minutes earlier than the others; one more arrived about 5 minutes later; the rest came slowly out. Three people ordered Jasmine tea - one small pot was served, which was quickly poured and the lid was left open at the side of the table to indicate it needed to be replenished but no staff asked about it until our meal was over, we got our check and then the manager asked how our meal was, noticed the empty pot and took it to refill! Although the food when it did arrive was tasty, the overall experience was deplorable."

"Service was slow and had to repeatedly ask for things that should be routinely provided and then waited at least 5-15 minutes for each request, silverware, refills on coffee/water, one of our entrees was forgotten. We were the first people in the restaurant when they opened and they ran out of coffee after one cup? The food was room temperature upon arrival to our table. Garlic noodles without any flavor of garlic. Rice overcooked. Entrees were devoid of significant flavor."

"Restaurant was real busy and we didn't get assisted until after 30 mins seated on the table. Other servers realized that the one assigned to our table was not present but they did not replace that person. Manager was totally unaware of the issue until I brought it up which I thought was totally unacceptable.
Overall a poor experience from what used to be one of my favorite restaurants!"

"Excellent food, Thai fusion closer to Thai than anything else. Chef is not afraid to put some heat into the food! The cocktail menu is just OK, but non-alcoholic drinks (Thai tea, house ginger soda) are amazing."

"Good music and drinks but unfortunately the food isn't as good as the SF location used to be. SF location also started to go down in quality of food and is no longer there. I would come back to the San Jose location for drinks and maybe an appetizer but that's about it."

"Ambiance was great-- dimly lit, modern furniture, very trendy. Drinks were good especially the Straits Smash. Food was disappointing however, not very flavorful and much more oily than was necessary."

"We arrived 45 minutes prior to our reservation and were seated in the front patio for happy hour. We were not given a happy hour menu and were not greeted by our server for 15 minutes. I had to get up to go look for a menu and to find out if someone would be serving us. We ordered 2 apps-fries and chicken satay and 2 drinks. It was not yet busy, around 5:15pm on a Friday evening, but our food took a long time to be delivered. The fries came out 15 minutes before the satay and were cold. Not even warm but cold. When the chicken came out it was very fatty and greasy. We decided not to endure any more poor service or terrible food and instead of going in for our dinner reservation, decided to go to another restaurant. Overall our experience was very negative and we won't be returning or recommending to anyone."

"Were informed after ordering our dishes that some of the dishes were not available. Some dishes were substituted without informing us. Portions were pretty small."

"We were seated 30 minutes late even though we had a reservation. It seemed like the crowd was too much for them to handle that night, though it didn't look that crowded. We were seated at a table where everytime someone opened the door to enter or leave the restaurant, we were attacked by a strong chilly wind. We asked our server to help us out with that and she said we keep the curtain closed but people just open it so nothing can be done. The restaurant had some empty tables and I would have expected she offer to move us to a better table. Food was pretty good. Out host was good. Everyone else just seemed a little rude and in a hurry."
