The manager was rude. My band came to play a charity event for 911, and they treated us quite disrespectfully! They wanted us to set-up our equipment in the middle of the sun scorched patio...under no shade. Made us move a 5-piece drumset and 2 very large Harbenger powered speakers twice. I might mention that we were NOT getting paid. After we moved our equipment to their desired location out in the sun, the outlets didn't work. The manager never would speak to me, just kept relaying messages through other people to us. Needless to say, we never got to actually play. What a disappointment and a sheer waste of our time on such a tragically historical day! Tsk Tsk Straits.

Went here on a recommendation of some friends and glad we went. First of all, the overall ambiance of the town centre is great so we enjoy going anywhere there. The food was great and cooked well and prepared well. Both my wife and I have lived in Singapore so we were comparing it to there so we liked it and were surprised at the authenticity. One thing for some people so as not to be shocked, we ordered the Singapore black pepper crab (which is awesome) and it had market price on then menu. It was quite on the expensive side ($50) for one crab. We went on a Sunday night so not busy. I recommend if you want to have authentic Singaporean food and a very nice atmosphere. We even sat outside in the heat and was cool enough with the fans but it will be even better when it cools off.

Straits is a new addition to the City Centre in Houston, TX and it was very hard to find anything wrong with the service/atmosphere or food. It was a Friday evening and my group of four arrived early to beat the crowd.
We were quickly set and offered simple menus, that were laid out so even a redneck from Arkansas could easly decide his courses.
After all was said and done, we all walked away with a full bellies and very happy pallets. I recommend ordering family style and each person ordering something different and everyone trying a few bites of each. I highly recommend the Roti Prata stuffed with Spiced Beef, the curry dip that accompanies this disch actually had one of my guest, who had been to Far East say that it reminded him of his travels abroad. For your main dish try the Spicey Basil Chicken. I was very nervous since it had dark meat chicken and I ussualy shy away from al except white, but was very surprised with the great flavor and slight kick of heat at the the end.
For anyone in Houston who wants to try great Asian food, this should be their place. Keep up the great work Chris Yeo.
