    Chow Kway Teow is the best by far!!! It's a rare find, so be sure and give it a try!!! My fiancé also loved the butter chicken. Chicken lollipops were delicious as well!

    Delicious singaporean dishes (like the sea bass and salmon on banana leaf). Hot hostess and i am not even lesbians . Better scene in Santa Row than the one in Palo Altos or Geary in SF.

    Okay lemongrass skirt steak great. Best part is frites. Eat them over the coconut rice (pictured here). Or I could be drunk from the mojitos.

    The straits style beef is simple and tasty, calamari is excellent and can't go wrong with the coconut shrimp

    One of my favorite restaurants. Great drinks - mangotini- and great food. Try the coconut rice amd tuna tower, it will change your life.

    Lemongrass Beef is one of the best dishes I've had on the Row- and it's only $24.

    Santana Row in San Jose is a-happenin' place to be and be seen at! Talk about finding the "best pick up line" from Esteban just outside Straits. We talked about the Geary Blvd.'s Straits in SFO. Read more

    This place is racist. I had been here with an Indian friend of mine a few months back. The bartenders didn't serve us drinks despite us showing INDIAN PASSPORTS.
