An upmarket Singaporean-themed buffet.

Straits Kitchen is an uber trendy, high-class hawker-themed establishment. I must admit I’ve eaten here many times and there’s a wonderful array of good local food in a plush, modern setting. It’s perfect for tourists who aren’t brave enough to hit the outdoor hawker stalls just yet.

Recommended dishes

Straits Kitchen features a Singaporean-themed buffet, that has five different sections - locally-inspired appetisers, Malay cuisine, Chinese cuisine, Indian cuisine and local desserts. There are glazed roast ducks and chickens hanging on display, paired perfectly with fragrant chicken rice, while a chef grills satay as you watch. The laksa was just spicy enough with a rich, creamy coconut gravy but I thought the sambal prawns could have been a bit spicier. (but maybe it’s catering for the tourist palate) It's also one of the very few Halal-certified hotel buffet venues in Singapore.

Ambience

There is a lot of wood paneling, comfortable, plush leather seats, and low lighting. Although the Straits Kitchen is a buffet restaurant, it has a certain upmarket feel about it.

Service

The staff are extremely efficient and polite.

Location

Situated on the ground floor of the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Scotts Road, the Straits Kitchen is just minutes from Orchard Road and a stone’s throw from Orchard MRT station.

Price advice

This isn’t the cheapest place to get local food, but if you want comfort and variety, then this is a good bet. $41++ for lunch and $45++ for dinner.
