Went to silks having looked forward to it for a long time.Had the $108 banquet.The Peking duck was lovely and the scallops very nice. Most of it was ok but the battered prawns and rockling we're way too dry.The very available soy sauce was a bad sign.Was surprised by the noise level and how casual many of the diners were. Shorts and t shirts with thongs on a Friday night ? Felt more like the Crown food court.Overall not terrible but disappointing for fine dining at an expensive price.

Excellent service and with a good menu. It is the top end price wise probably over the top with the wine list but overall a vrty good experience. I would suggest a booking as it does get very busy.

Have been to silks numerous times and have always been pleased with the service.

However the portions are quite small for the heavy prices.. $37 for a fried rice is a little steep however great quality of food and all very tasty. Nothing you cant get at a quality take away around the corner.

First timers will probably enjoy.

Great food, yes it is a bit pricey but well worth the money. Very quiet and peaceful restaurant. I can imagine it can be romantic if you go as a couple. Good customer service.

Four of us had lunch at Silks as a surprise for our daughters birthday and we had a fabulous time. I had requested a table with views overlooking the Yarra and we had lovely views. We opted for one of the banquests so that we could try a few different things and each course was delicious. We loved the decor and spaciousness of the restaurant it added to the "special occasion". Yes Silks is on the pricey side but our daughter said that it was the best restaurant she had ever been too so for us it was money well spent. Would definitely return for another special occasion.
