“Pricey but good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We have dined at Silks numerous times due to business. We love the food but find the whole experience to be very pricey especially compared to other top Chinese Restaurants in Melbourne.

We opted to share a small starter & ordered crispy prawn spring rolls with sweet corn soup with crab meat & egg. The soup was absolutely delicious. For our mains we shared pan fried scallops, Singaporean wok-fried king prawns & wok tossed sliced beef tenderloins. All were yummy but the price slightly over the top. !

Silks is located on Level One in the Crown Towers in Southbank. The atmosphere is very elegant & formal which is pleasing if looking to entertain clients or for a special occasion.

“Scrumptiously good”

Great atmosphere, perfect service and yummy food. We had 'set menu' with drinks - highly recommended. Cocktails also recommended.

“Disapointing - $175 / head & left hungry”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Ate here in private dining room - large group - selection of wines poor & uninspired. First two choices not available anymore - Yalumba 2002 single vineyard Chardonnay & M3 ( run out of 2012 ) . Devil's Lair Chardonnay $110 was overpriced ($39 retail) . Bob Oately Signature Chardonnay is undrinkable and poor choice as least expensive option. Sommelier was embarrassed about poor selection. Food was slow & meagre. Had to go elsewhere for a late night snack! My first disappointing Melbourne dining experience. Go elsewhere.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

My wife and I ate at Silks for an end of financial year celebration with a group of my work colleagues and their partners in the private tent. The tent added a lot of occasion to the night and meant everyone at the table spoke to everyone as you could swap seats easily and not disturb other patrons. The food was excellent as you would expect of a place with this reputation.
