I'm never in a hurry during
evening meals with friends, but our unfriendly wait person's disappearing acts caused me to worry early on. She never offered another cocktail, and she seemed impatient and put out with our questions, and once she left us we knew we wouldn't see her again for an hour. The restaurant was only half full. Maybe they were short-handed? Big disappointment. I depended on the good reviews I saw online so I picked this as the spot to treat my friend for her birthday."

Food wasn't as good as it looks.
Food was also overpriced."

We were a part of four and dined
outside. Our table faced the Green where a live band played oldies. The drink list was fantastic. The pear martini is a wonderful libation. e ordered the Satay and Ribs as appetizers both were very good. Each of us ordered separate entries. We all like the flavors. The service was very very good. The live music and people watching while dining was a fun experience. All in all a it was a very nice night out."

Their food was gross. I have never
had Asian food I didn't like until now. Tasted like dog meat. And the restaurant was not nearly as fancy as I expected for those prices. Service was good but was scarred by the food!"

We have been going to Straits for
a while and have always enjoyed the experience. However, this was a terrible experience. The service was poor, food was not upto standard and the food did not come together. "

Having lived for a couple of years
in Singapore, I'd say the food is fairly authentic. Delicious at reasonable prices. The restaurant was bustling on a Friday night, but service was good and food arrived without any delays. Recommended !!"

The food can be good here, but
during our most recent visit service was basically absent for an hour. We had to go inside and wave down other waiters to order, get plates, silverware, etc. Not enough people were on hand to handle several large parties. At this price point you don't expect this to happen. "

We had a fantastic dinner on
Thursday night. We made a reservation, but it didn't look too crowded so maybe you could walk in during the week. We asked to sit outside, and had a nice view of the green space at City Centre. Our waiter was EXTREMELY polite and helpful, as was any employee who stopped by our table. We had not been to this restaurant before. And our waiter gave us lots of suggestions as to what to choose. Everything was delicious. We had the Kung Pao Lollipops, which were really flavorful. We also shared a shrimp dish made with coconut rice, and some spring rolls. If this is your first visit, they bring you Roti Prata, which is like a crispy naan bread with a yummy curry dipping sauce. We will definitely dine here again."

The food is exotic, different and
absolutely yummy!!! If u go on the weekend stay after 10, always enjoy dj Eric's choice of music, I just sit there with my sound hound. They also have a cute dancer. I always watch out for what she's going to wear next, she has different themes (ex. Lady gaga, bumble bee, etc). Just a great fun environment and again, the food is delicious. If u go try to make reservations because they will give u more attention there than on the other side which is sometimes hard to find seats and the waitresses are always in a rush. I'll remember to sit on the other side next time. Still my favorite hang out spot!!"

Great place for Hh we stayed after
and dined some more. My reservation was for 5pm. We enjoyed enough happy hour treats and they kept our table until we were ready. Great service ñ great ambiance!"

So, we were two families trying to
have a nice dinner on a Friday night. The Sangria was great and we all enjoyed our dinner. I don't think the food was outstanding but everything was tasty and well prepared. Our server was nice and did his best on a very busy night. Unfortunately, our friend had her wallet stolen out of her purse while we were at the table. The thieves were off and running with the credit cards while we continued to enjoy our conversations. The manager and waiter helped us look for the wallet and were very apologetic even though it wasn't their fault and there was clearly nothing they could do about it. It totally ruined the evening for us."
Dined on 4/4/2014
Server was extremely knowledgable
about the menu, offered suggestions, gave time to decide, great during meal. Great variety in menu, everything was fantastic. Pleasantly surprised, great find in City Centre. We met for a business dinner here and it was a little loud for that type setting, but if you were looking for a good night out, highly recommend."

I really enjoyed the experience,
food was great, we enjoyed the Dragon menu very much. The waitress was extremely pleasant can;t wait to go back!"

I've dined at Straits before and
was very pleased. This event was on a Wednesday evening and it was horrible. The staff was unattentive or overattentive depending on the comments we made."
Dined on 3/19/2014
Our meal was outstanding.
Interesting presentation and comes flavors. However, the prices were excessive given the type of food provided. When they allowed a man dressed in a faded tee shirt, worn out shorts and flip flops to be served, I realized the restaurent is more about money than the food experience."

Chose Straits to celebrate my
partner birthday. Since she lived in Asia I thought it would be nice for her to remember the food and flavors from that region. It was a winner. She told me she found the food very much like the food she used to eat in Singapore so I was very please with the election"
Dined on 3/14/2014
We have been to Straits several
times now and each time has been great. The varied Southeast Asia menu is fantastic and everything we have tried is excellent. I recommend sharing family style in order to enjoy more of the varied flavors. Some of our favorites are the chicken sate, eggplant, basil chicken, and spicy prawns. They also have Singapore favorites like Chili Crab and Black Pepper Lobster. Service is excellent too, as if you are in Southeast Asia."
Dined on 3/12/2014
Menu was too complicated with
regard to "unique" food combinations. Tried to be too fancy. I like fusion food, but honestly couldn't get an idea from the menu what I might actually be served. Suggestion: take a photo of each entre like they do in Asian countries so that we know what we're getting when we order!!!"

Visited Straits for brother's
birthday dinner and it was GREAT! The appetizer sampler was AWESOME! Only complaint was that the veggie portion of appetizer was touching the meat, so my sister who is a vegetarian was completely turned off and didn't eat the veggie samososa, which of course was AMAZING. There are reviews that praise the cocktails, but my martini was just ok. The COCUNUT RICE was EVERYTHING! We had the seafood risotto, salt and pepper chicken, and veggie fried rice. All was wonderful and will be back soon. Oh yeah... some reviews said servers were snoody, but the guy we had was very patient and kind even though we took FOREVER to order."

Came here for lunch with work. Had
booked a table, which turned out it was no reason for - the restaurant was almost empty. After our lunch it's very clear why this restaurant has so few guests compared to the other City Centre restaurants. Firstly, several they didn't have several dishes on the menu. Our waiter apologized by "we didn't have them yesterday either" which just confirmed the poor logistics. Secondly, 10 min after we've ordered the food, the waiter came back to confirm the order - it was obvious that he'd forgotten one of my co-workers order. When the food came, only three out of four got our dishes. Lastly, it took us close to 30 min to pay - in an empty restaurant! Will never come back."

Really good dining experience.
Would recommend to my friends."

Food was delicious, but we were
given a table close to the bar, and music was so loud it was really hard to have a conversation."

Upon night in question. The waited
who wait on me and my wife was very rude and unknowable of what he was doing. Not attentive to our needs."

I went in the resteraunt not
really knowing to much about the food. The food was great and the server was very knowledgeble and helpful. He recommended the dishes to try based on our likes. Went in for Valentines and everything went well and in a timely fashion."

I think this is a great place for
having drinks, but not for dinning. It is to loud to have a conversation. The food is ok"

My friends and I came to Straits
for brunch as we were really missing Singapore and all the fantastic food we enjoyed overseas. This restaurant does not disappoint. The curry bowls are delicious, as are many of the small plates. Our group order quite a few different things and every dish was great! I was a little sad to notice that the restaurant was quite empty compared to Ruggles and Yardhouse but I hope others will be willing to try this place."

Music was on point for a young
crowd. The ambiance was excellent. I love this place."

Very average which is not what you
expect for a restaurant in this area"
Dined on 1/22/2014
I'm such a fan of Asian fusion
type restaurants and this one is top notch. Broad menu with plenty of choices for all tastes. I was especially impressed with the number of seafood dishes included crab and lobster. I had the jalapeño seafood curry which was outstanding. A bit noisy/energetic on weekends and good for people watching. If dining with kids, come early. We will be back!"

Server was new and thus drink
order was tough for her, 7 cocktails and food did not come out correctly. BUt she was nice and fixed everything. Menu seems interesting enough for a second try."

We had a great time for my
boyfriends birthday dinner"
Dined on 12/26/2013
I love this place. It has a swanky
modern international decor that should be appealing to plenty of young hip crowd. The bar was up front with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant portion also had plenty of seating. The atmosphere was lively with music and light chatter. The crowd was various age, races/ethnicities, and compositions. I loved this aspect. The food was very good pan Asian cuisine that was innovative. The foo d was both delicious, and the portionsere large. My only criticism would be the white white sangria...fora restaurant trying to have international flair it was very weak. Real sangria has a bit of liquor in it. They should consider using pineapple infused rum or vodka to spice up the "cocktail ".."

My wife is Singaporean and we just
moved to Houston from Singapore. We had low expectations for Straits Restaurant, but were pleasantly surprised. The location is good, however parking was a bit challenging so make sure to leave plenty of time for that. One waiter was very diligent. He paid attention to us and said to one table as soon as we set our menus down. The food we had was a decent representation of Singapore. We had a bottle of the German Riesling (excellent). The black pepper crab used a more liquid pepper sauce like found at a lot of hawker centers. We prefer the dry pepper coating style so we'll be trying chili crab next time. The popiah was not quite the same, but it tasted good and fresh. The lemongrass steak was delicious."

We have been to straits multiple
times before. We took 4 visiting family members and the place was really disappointing. I had to return my fish as it was hard as a rock (I have ordered that many time). We also ordered 2 dishes as side, the garlic noodles and the eggplant. They never made it to the table. We were finished with dinner and finally asked our waitress, she had no idea. The manager did visit our table and asked what we wanted for dessert. We order 3 and only comped 2. I don't think I'll be back."
