Pros: always fresh

Cons: busy, but worth it

The Origami sea bass, along with Tamarind Beef are excellent. The sea bass was cooked just right along with the mushrooms. The sauce on the Sea bass was perfect and went well with the aromatic Pandan Chicken rice. The beef itself

My wife and I used to love this place. There are some really great and unique dishes that you can't find elsewhere. Unfortunately, the combination of weak $10 drinks and really inexcusable service are getting to be too much. We had one

I've been here a few times with people from work. On every occasion I have been, the service has been relatively sub-par. I would normally put up with this if the food was great, but, unfortunately, the food was just average. They do

I have eaten here a few times, and if possible, it gets better each time I go! The service was great, and so were the meals! It's so nice to be able to enjoy a nice meal after a day of shopping in downtown; it can be absolutely exhausting

We went to Straits to grab a quick bite after catching a flick at the Century. Very Convenient!!! We got a pretty good bottle of wine off of their very large wine list. The food is decent with nice presentations, however the flavorings

For those of you who remember the Geary Street location, you'll be happy to know that Straits is back in SF at the westfield mall. It looks nothing like the original, but features the same great asian-fusion menu. LOVE LOVE LOVE the roti

I know it is a new restaurant, but the service and food was horrible. We waited forever for a table while at least five or six were sitting dirty. All the while the bussers were chatting away. When we were finally seated it took fifteen
