We had a private room for our table of 9. Arrived on time at 730pm and ordered immediately. The main courses did not hit the table until 10 pm. The entrees of Peking duck and lobster san choi bow were only very average. Flavours we all quite bland and food served luke warm. We have eaten here a lot over... More

Our second visit to Silks, and just as wonderful as the first time. Try the raspberry mojito, it is so lovely and refreshing! The other cocktails are just as good. The service and food are out of this world. Attentive touches by the staff make the dining experience so lovely.

The environment is really beautiful and the menu looks good. My husband & I had the $108 banquet (per person!!!) but not one dish was in any way outstanding, which at this price they should be. A glass of Heidesieck champagne cost $28 & was rather flat. I had a glass of Alsace (can't remember what it was), which was... More

Not too posh for a special family meal and with attentive, friendly service. For a big party you can book a tent or a private room. Lovely view out over Southbank and the Yarra so you can see the city light up. From the balcony you can watch the Southbank passeggiata and the tall flares outside Crown will go off... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here for a birthday celebration. The menu is extensive so we opted for the banquet menu and really enjoyed it. The service was also very good.

Have eaten here many times for special occasions, or just to enjoy a lovely atmosphere and feel special. The food at silks just melts in your mouth, the service is wonderful and I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

We enjoyed the $88 banquet for my husband and I and we bought the san choy bow and spring rolls for our 6 year old son. The food was absolutely delightful and the service was wonderful. The staff were fabulous and attentive. Only real issues were that the caret in the entrance smells very damp, another couple were seated directly... More
