The Hip crowd that descends nightly dines and lounges in a striking space that is casual yet edgy with light woods and tropical island elements meshing with industrial materials. Owned and operated by noted restaurateur, Chris Yeo. “It has always been my dream to have a restaurant to make people happy! Food is my passion and through food I make people smile!”

Chris, who was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Singapore, describes Singapore as a brilliant culinary melting pot! In 1987 Chris opened STRAITS, introducing Singaporean Cuisine to the sophisticated diner of San Francisco. Named for the Singapore Strait that separates Singapore from Indonesia, “The Strait of Malacca,” STRAITS became an instant success. Few people know that Chris Yeo began his career as a hairdresser and was once more familiar with coiffing hair than steaming dumplings. Had he not given up his blow-dryer for butane burners, foodies across the country wouldn’t have him to thank for bringing authentic yet modern Singaporean and Chinese cuisine to today’s dining landscape.
