First of all is the location in the middle of City Centre right by the Hotel Sorella. City Centre has proven to be a very successful place full of restaurants, stores, a movie theater and even a high-end bowling alley. Straits is a Singaporean Restaurant. What is Singaporean food like? What I have tried it is a wonderful combination of... More

We have eaten here multiple times for lunch. Located in the City Center there are many good restaurants here but Strait's stands out as one of the best. Cuisine would be Asian Fusion with different and excellent entrees. The 5 spice spare ribs are to die for. One of the chef's even shared with me how they are prepared. Very... More

We have really enjoyed our two visits. The first was to the bar. The bartender was excellent. Good drinks and excellent $5 food plates! I was surprised at how delicious they were! We also have gone to dinner there on another evening and had a wonderful meal. Kudos to Chef Jahn!

Went tonight to celebrate my birthday and asked to sit outside, however, they asked me if we were having dinner and I replied small plates and drinks. She told me we could sit on the outside of the bar area. I noticed everyone that was sitting in the main outdoor area was having drinks and small appetizers.....REALLY. We won't ever... More
