I traveled on consecutive golf trips for groups of 14 and 20 and on both closing Saturday nights we smartly chose Silks for our finale dinner. The food was delicious and we were well looked after. We had our own room at the back of the restaurant and they set up two large tables to serve us. We let them... More

6 of us had a business dinner here on a Monday night. The restaurant was quiet but the food was very good, the staff very friendly and the atmosphere informal.

This is a very good Chinese in a nice premises in the centre of Malahide Town. Have had some very good late nights here, the food is very good and they don't rush you out - nice when you are there for a Celebration or with a Group late at night. The Service is also very good.

Have been a few times and the food is very good, not the cheapest but I was never disappointed with what I ordered. It's unfortunately never really fully booked, which, on the other hand, makes it a good choice for a last minute dinner, even on a Friday night. The restaurant itself is not really heated and I was a... More

I have been eating at silks chinese restaurant for years now, the food is really lovely, but it tends to be a little pricey, lovely staff and beautiful decor. Will be back again.

I was in Silks restaurant for my in laws 30th Wedding Anniversary and it was wonderful. Now I was a bit taken aback by the staff who at first were not all that welcoming but it was a busy night and the place was busy. Our food was delicious and I could not fault it, while there was some confusion... More

We looked at the reviews before we booked so were surprised to find the restaurant empty when we arrived, and then we were shown to a small table at the edge of the restaurant! The food was good (very large portions!) and the service will be better once the young waitress gets more confidence, the manager was on hand to... More

Décor a bit aged, the food was really nice once we got it. Staff always seem in a rush and not too many smiles going. That said they often don't get the food out in record time, once waited 45 mins from order to starter. They cater for kids but I suspect they'd rather not.

We dine at Silks about 6 to 8 times a year. But tonight is our last time to eat here. Food was fine but the desert was an Ultra thin slice of Pavlova. On this visits and other tables got a proper size slice of desert but this was so funny because it was waver thin. No comment by the... More

We went here for a birthday dinner and what a let down it was. We had to wait an hour and a half for the main course. The restaurant was only a quarter full at the time. The starters and main courses were so bland and tasteless that despite our hunger we left most of it after us. It was... More
