Straits - Santana Row Review - Thumbs Down

teddyman13 | Nov 5, 2006 07:29 AM

This is a review of the food and atmosphere at Straits. The restaurant sounds very good on paper. The bar and the atmosphere is lively. However when it comes to service and food, this place ranks in the HORRIBLE category.

Our group of 6 reservation was at 8:30pm and we get seated at 9:45pm. This is not only unacceptable but the Manager in charge never once takes the initiative to tell us the reason why it is taking so long but tells the (dumb) staff to keep as at bay and say only 10 more minutes. Now onto the food. I have been to Singapore and Malyasia and in comparison this food tastes like it came from Panda Express but with added spices and MSG. Overall the service was below sub par and the food was not worth the cost. I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone unless they like to people watch, eat disgusting food, and stand around.
