“Dissappointing, did not meet the Expectations of "fine dining in Phuket"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2010

We saved what was expected to be the best for last, after eating at good restaurants and beach side for the week we read all the hype about Silk"
The decor & setting is beautiful, but the restraunt lacks feeling & atmosphere.
After waiting 45 minutes from ordering to recieving our meal, the entire meal was delivered to our table! 5 dishes in 5 minutes.
Being from Sydney, we have no shortage of Thai restaurants, the food here was good but we expected something exceptional.
Service was poor, staff were very aloof and not engaging.
The complimentary ride back to our hotel was nice.

“Oh please, take me back- the food was amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2010

My husband and I were in Surin Hill for a week of our tour through Asia and we were referred to Silk by a friend. This restaurant is out of this world. The atmosphere is beautiful and serene, the service impeccable, and the food is mouth-watering. We ate there 4 of the 7 nights we were there, as we just had to go back for more. The chicken, basil and pineapple egg rolls are to die for- and the food is reasonably priced with the dollar that you can order lots of food and feel quite abundant. enjoy! They also have a shuttle that will drop you off at your villa or hotel after eating.

“best meal during my stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2010

Minimal but warm interior. Overall ambiance is cozy. Staffs are friendly and very helpful. I think they serve very good Thai food there. It was the best meal we had during our 4-day-trip to Phuket.

I would not say the price is cheap but is quite fair. If I remember correctly, we ordered 2 appetizers, 2 main and a bottle of wine (middle range). Approximately, we paid around USD50 per head.

I will probably go back if I visit Phuket again.

“Good Thai food, lovely location by the pool with views of the bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2010

The Thai food we had was excellent, of course its more expensive than most places in the area but when you look at the surrounding you immediately know why.

We also choose a pizza to share from the international menu, we are both pizza fans when we need a European food fix (we live in Thailand). Unfortunately that wasn't up to scratch, the problem seamed more to do with there choice of ingredients. We ordered the Diavola Pizza, the meat is way to strong in smell and just over powered the whole thing, there should also have been chilli's, which we couldn't find. And the amount of cheese just made the Pizza a sloppy mess In defence of the staff, they did try to rectify and they did re-cook a fresh one, however the result was pretty much the same. We were not charged for this item.

Overall, we would go back. The Thai food is fantastic and we will try other items from the International menu next. The happy hour from 4-7 gives 50% discount on all drinks, that's well worth a visit just for a nice glass of wine at a sensible price
