    The only thing we didn't like was French fries, but that's ok for an Asian Fusion place :) Coconut rice was yummie!

    Food excels. People watching the best. That is if you like to make fun of DBs.

    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.

    Confusing mix of Americanized Asian food. Not very impressive.

    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.

    Close second is the banana leaf salmon, so moist it melts in your mouth like butter!

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

    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.

    Service is slow, food was cold and overpriced, and half the menu was unavailable. Unsatisfying to say the least. Go elsewhere.

    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
