This is a great restaurant with one of the best Malaysian chicken curries I have eaten. Straits have a special lunch menu which is a firm favourite with my family. Choose from dishes like Beef Rendang, Nash Lemak and lots of noodle dishes, to name a few. The staff are lovely and the food is so good!

We had a really nice meal here. I had the spicy fried chicken, my friend had the beef in black bean sauce and we shared a dish of Chinese broccoli. All three dishes tasted great. The staff were also friendly. I'd recommend this place for sure and we'll be back.

Food is a little on the salty side. Service was fast. Wide selection of Malaysian food. Tables were placed pretty close to each other.

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

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
