Located inside Pan Pacific London.

Embracing a respectful approach to cooking based on heritage recipes, our menu in Straits Kitchen showcases a melting pot of cuisines from Singapore's many cultures.

Traders and neighbours have been bringing ingredients into Singapore through the Straits of Malacca, resulting in a palette of eclectic flavours reflected in our colourful and exciting dishes.

Using purely Asian ingredients, sourced and grown locally in the UK to minimise our carbon footprint, the team is headed up by Executive Chef, Lorraine Sinclair and Head Chef Soon Hwa Wong – both of whom bring authentic flavours to the table.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant features floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the Plaza, while two private dining rooms enable guests to enjoy a selection of set menus to suit all tastes and occasions.

    Service was amazing, but I think the reason why the restaurant was empty was because the actual quality of the food (I.e produce, the freshness of the products) I think was lacking. I have reason to believe the fish was frozen and so were the duck rolls. Pretty much chewy. Which I’m ok with, but don’t charge me the premium that you would for fresh fish. A bill for 2x of 195£, 2 starters one main to share, dessert, cocktails and tea.

    Highly disappointing. Business lunch for three people, the food was adequate but far from anything memorable. The service was abysmal. On two separate occasions a waiter and then waitress attempted to clear our plates whilst one of the party was still clearly eating. Waiter leaning right across the table to clear stuff as too lazy to walk round a table and collect plates/glasses in an appropriate manner. Will not be returning if that’s the service level.

    Exquisite and delicious food, some starters weren't as refined as the mains. The Duck leg was excellent likewise the soft shell crab. You have to finish with the chocolate desert as this is a show stealing dish. Our waiter Gyula was excellent and made the whole experience better.

    Was looking forward to the visit, however got let down by the few things. The server Manuel - was very casual, while first approached the table were “so are we ready”?And when we mentioned that we are just still going through the wine list, I felt like he got annoyed by it. Another colleague (who is a new joiner) was a polite and very helpful. We decided to go for 5 courses menu. My options were very good and delicious, however my husbands-were just mediocre. Same waiter while brining the food was spieling the dishes, but you can’t hear or understand what he is saying as it was super robotic and heartless. Also, bare in mind while ordering 5 courses-first one is amuse Bouche which in other restaurants I been dined before was a complimentary course from chef such as petit fours-here it’s your first course…..for whatever reasons? We ordered additional dessert from Al a cart-the mandarin and it was delicious, my husband had a coconut-and as per him it was a highlight of his dinner. My chocolate mousse-perhaps was the most disappointing part-the only Asian flavor you will have ina sorbet-the rest is your typical rich chocolate mouse with a chunk or rice crispies which stick together and you can’t break it with your fork or spoon. All in all-there are so many other Asian restaurants in the area with a better service, food and ambiance. Do research before you book this place and don’t get your hopes high because of the name of the hotel. Last thing-I sent two messages to the restaurant asking what are the option for one guest who is pescatarian?no answer and while ordering 5 course tasting-second starters options were just meat.I asked the waiter and he came back with just one option as if either yes or no-which I found very unprofessional as you been given initially choice of two meat options why I was given just one?and guess what it was-calamari with tartar sauce???room service menu? Having said all that-best calamari in my life-it’s juts initially approach is poor

    I was expecting more from this experience. Service was impeccable as always at Pan Pacific but the food was not up to scratch. We shared starters which were the best part of the meal and quite nice but nothing spectacular. Prawns were overcooked for my liking. Chicken satay skewers were sent back as undercooked. The main course we chose was simply odd. Very nicely crisp duvknleg slathered with grainy egg yolk and freeze-dried raspberries on top - it sounded better on paper. The sauce was tasty with the rice but the whole dish didn't come together for me at all. We were offered puds for free which was a lovely gesture after skewer-gate but didn't partake. For the money there are far better restaurants with much more ambience and tastier food. I think this is a shame as the hotel itself is simply amazing and it deserves a higher quality restaurant to complement it.

    Inconsistent service. Had a magical experience on Monday and decided to revisit on the Thursday. Disappointed. Upon arrival, there were no staff at all. This was prime lunch time. We stood there unattended for 5 minutes only to discover they were having a staff meeting. The waiter was nosey and asked personal questions, wasting time despite the late service. Upon asking for the bill, it was another 10 minute wait before I got the card machine - totally ruining the experience as I was running late for a meeting by this point. Will think twice before revising.

    Amazing food, lovely staff and good environment. We had a business lunch and the setting was perfect, not too formal but not too casual either. Would definitely be back, the food was so good!

    Lovely place and perfectly located for a business lunch but the 3 course set menu took 2h10 from start to finish so way too long. Service was very sweet but clearly inexperienced. Teething problems I expect.

    We went for my Son's 18th birthday and were disappointed. So much went wrong, the food was cold, we sent it back it came back warm, the person who served us was terrible, plus more to much to write in a review. What I will say is they were very apologetic and gave us a free glass of fizz but if I'm honest that was not enough to compensate our experience.

    Straits KitchenResponded on 1 May 2022Dear Magstar, I sincerely apologize for your disappointing dining experience at Straits Kitchen. Rest assured that we strive to give the best food and service quality to our guests. We do hope you'll give us another opportunity and come visit our restaurant again. Sincerely yours, Andrea Caldelari Straits Kitchen Restaurant General Manager

    Waited for over 50 mins in the bar for our reservation on Valentine’s Day & offered a low quality complimentary cocktail. Then waited 3 hours to bring out the food during Valentine’s Day - ended up leaving in frustration without the food even coming. Biggest disappointment and absolutely ruined Valentine’s Day

    Straits KitchenResponded on 1 May 2022Dear Anonymous Reviewer, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing Straits Kitchen for your Valentine’s dinner. Please, may I kindly ask you to contact me directly, as I would like to invite you back in Straits Kitchen to ensure you get the service & quality of food that you both deserve this time. I look forward to hearing from you, and remain with my best wishes in the meantime. Yours sincerely, Andrea

    I understand it was Valentine’s Day but they were very behind with time. They should’ve been well prepared. We waited 30 mins for our starter, and waited another 30 for our Main. To be honest, didn’t really enjoy my meal. The food wasn’t hot to my liking and very bland imo. The cocktails felt watered down. The ambience is very nice but can be a lil chilli inside the restaurant, if you sit close to the windows. I would come here to use the facilities but wouldn’t eat at the hotel again.
