Delicious food and great wine. The service was excellent. When we arrived we were seated at our table and given the banquet list (as we had pre booked the meals). The wait staff were friendly and were able to answer most questions about the food. The banquet was delicious and all courses were served in a timely manner, towards the end we were getting rather full, but overall I feel there was enough food. We were seated towards the front of the restaurant, so we didn't have views, however the overall feel of the restaurant was nice. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

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.
