Writing this review and my mouth is watering. Excellent Asean Malaysian food. Better than what you will find in Malaysia. Good selection of dishes and the service is good.

We came here with a group of friends for dinner. It was very quiet and one of a few places open on a Monday. It's easy to park outside. Service was very friendly and efficient. The menu was quite large and some of it a bit odd - marmite fish! The entrees were standard Asian, spring rolls etc. The food... More

A family dinner for 8. My second visit and first for the others. Every dish was excellent. We BYO'd our wine but bought beers etc. The cost worked out to $50 per person which we all rated as great value. The servings here are generous so take that into account especially with the rice and noodle accompaniments. The menu is... More

A local restaurant that serves delicious Malaysian food. Service is great - they handle large groups very well.

GOOD - The internal decor was beautiful and clean. BAD - The taste of food were unfortunately very average, some of the noodle tasted a little bland. There were no WOW factor, although the food presentation did look good. - The waiters and waitresses need more customer service training. I only saw one waiter smiling and looking very cheerful while... More

We quite liked our first visit to Straits Kitchen for lunch. Our char kuey teow and nasi lemak were both very tasty and decent-sized serves. The char kuey teow is clearly superior to Papparich at Knox which we visited two days prior. Will we return? Happily.

Straits Kitchen has been a regular lunch haunt very 2 or 3 months for the last 4 years and occasionally before that. Try the beef rendang and the singapore noodles and you can't do far wrong. Service is always prompt and provided with a smile. Straits Kitchen deserves your patronage because its food and service has been absolutely consistent on... More
