Description & Atmosphere
Straits Cafe brings us back to when we were in Singapore, especially
after tasting its amazing Singaporean/Asian cuisine. Served family-style,
you are encouraged to order several dishes to share with your table.
We've eaten here on numerous occasions and each time it's been a
There are two main dining areas one inside, and one outside.
We prefer the more casual (and less noisy) outside patio. The large
enclosed area is filled with umbrella tables, plants and lanterns
overhead. There are heaters to keep you warm on chilly nights and
live entertainment in the summer.
Inside, the large dining area is a little more formal. Tables are
quite close together and decimal levels are noticeably louder. Either
location is good, depending on your mood...and the wait. Comfortable
bar area with limited counter seating and overstuffed sofas.
Give your taste buds a treat and start with the Roti Prata (grilled
Indian flat bread with Curry dipping sauce) and Satay Chicken or
Lamb with Peanut Sauce. We especially like the Sayor Lodeh (fresh
Veges simmered in a spicy Coconut Curry), Green Bean Sambal, the
Origami Sea Bass or Salmon Filet, accompanied by an order of the
Nasi Goreng (fried coconut rice with prawns and mixed veges).
The restaurant is an impressive place to take your clients and out-of-town
guests. Call for more information on private parties.
Open daily for lunch and dinner.
Reservations are recommended.
Parking is available in their small lot or street parking off El
