“smoke of East....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Restaurant uses very fresh vegetables but which have nothing to do with oriental cuisine: what does it means: tomato, broccoli and parsley in this kind of restaurant? The plates tested (Tauhu kig and Gai phad kin, chicken and tofu) were composed of fresh vegetables but not well cooked: the flavors were mixed with decidedly western flavor! The ginger was used in lyophilized powder and not like the typical root spice known, tofu taste bad with rubber consistence. This restaurant founds good products on the local german market but can not cook according to the typical eastern recipe.
What is most shocking is the very high prices for a restaurant very poor and even more
international recognition by TripAdvisor and Michelin guide!
Nice the location and waiters.
Germans wake up, this is not the oriental cuisine!

“Good atmosphere and very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Sila Thai was packed out on this Monday evening - and now I know why!
Very good food selected from an extensive menu. Prices were fine considering the standard of the food. Service was very courteous, if a little aloof.but overall a great Thai restaurant.

“Good food in Thai atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I've been into the far east, but I cannot 100% judge on the authenticity of the food. However it was one of the best experience I had for a while. I must say great food, nice atomsphore. Not much you can do wrong here.

“Mismatch of price and quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is by far the fanciest Thai Restaurant in Dusseldorf and the interior is very impressive (see website). But when we had dinner, all of us (4 couples, all of us have been to a couple of places in the world, so I think we can distinguish good from not so good) were disappointed by the taste and surprised by the prices. Maybe that night the main chef had a day off or so, I do not know. As a matter of fact, we all decided not to go there again. One couple mentioned that they had been there before and wanted to give this place a 2nd chance as they were not convinced the first time. Instead, I can recommend Chiang Mai Restaurant on Weseler Strasse, which I recently discovered.
