    Try brunch. The crab Benedict (served w/ greens & asparagus, no English muffin and spicy Asian hollandaise) is bomb. Also try the rose (as in flower) mimosa. Nice twist on the classic with rose syrup.

    I loved this restaurant. A great option before the movies. Yes, it isn't as hip because its in the mall but great food, drinks, and happy hour. The banana blossom salad is fabulous!!

    Good Happy Hour. $3 beers. Garlic noodle appetizer is a big portion. Not like the garlic noodles at that crab joint.$5. 4-7. Wed. 4-close. No HH on Sat.

    Can't say how the normal dinner is here but happy hour was awesome. Did about 3 rounds of Satay with a buddy + a lot of other good eats. Cheap good drinks.

    Pretty decent Singaporean/Asian food. Definitely get chicken satay, chow kuay teo and chicken rice--it's as authentic and lip-smacking good as it gets in SF.

    The chicken curry is incredible and enough for two! Get the brown rice and a side of chili paste. Perfection.

    Sea Bass. Perfection. Enclosed in a simple hand-made parchment container, nestled in the midst of aromatic juices and berries. So choice.

    Try the Stripped Bass - Very crispy, sweet spicy basil chili, plenty of meat, but the best part was the cheek meat!

    The Murtabak and Satay are very authentic, I lived in Singapore for 2 years, Satay sauce is just like going to Satay Club in Clarke Quay.

    Watch where you get your table, the HVAC trunk line makes your food get cold quickly.

    Offering an array of Singaporean flavors, Straits' signature dishes pair well with our ginger-infused Cloud NineTen cocktail.

    Disconnect between kitchen and front of house. Food was good, service bad. Order takers, not helpful. Brought wrong food. Unfriendly. Don't clean chairs. Frustrating experience at the price point.

    The Ginger Drop is amazing. Made with house Ginger-infused vodka, it may look frou-frou, but it has a real bite.
