    Excellent service with staff knowledgeable about food and wine. We had a champagne that was a bit flat and they replaced it without question, opening a new bottle in front of us. Food was delicious.

    Returned to this great restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Service was excellant and the food was extremely good . The only issue that we both had was that the Peking Duck meat was a little dry. If you pick a banquet for your meal , make sure you let them know the time Druid’s between courses that you want otherwise the course come out very quickly Still a great establishment that we will return to.

    The service is impeccable, the staff lovely, and the must have dishes are the Natural Oysters, and the spiced salt and pepper Calamari. They are both without a doubt the best I have ever had. Can’t recommend high enough!!!

    Food was amazing!! This is our go-to Crown restaurant as the food is always exceptional. The duck pancakes as they are always a winner. Would also recommend the calamari, fried rice and black angus beef from their new menu. Only disappointment is the cocktails - they used to be really good but ever since they reopened after covid, they are much weaker and don’t feel the cocktails are value for money. Have been twice now and ordered 5x different cocktails, all very weak.

    I think that over the years the general appearance of the restaurant has declined. The decor needs a revamp. In terms of food we were extremely disappointed of the overall quality as Silks used to be as good as the Flower Drum and great for a special occasion. Not this Christmas Day. Very disappointing First entree was warm and the fish was dried out. Had been plated up and sitting on the bench for far too long. Oyster was warm. Value for money wasn’t justified. Wait staff were attentive.

    Service was appalling. Ordered lobster and a scallop dish and was asked to prove we could pay for it before they would prepare the food. The restaurant had an abundance of staff but we had to ask for utensils to crack open the lobster claws and change of hand towels or plates during the meal. Food quality was good but a pity that the experience was completely undermined by poor service. Will not be returning again.

    Service 10/10. Ambiance 9/10. Food quality 7/10. The steamed Barramundi was not cooked well, some part was still .. frozen? which suggested it might not be a live fish. Peking duck: the pancake slices used were too thick. Food quality definitely needs to be improved for sure if you want to hold the name.

    Loved the food and ambiance. Service was excellent with a small criticism that my hand towel was not replaced after the wait staff spilled sauce on it. I have always enjoyed my previous visits at Silks but have not been seated by the window before...the view is amazing and simply enhanced the overall dining experience. Looking forward to dining in again.

    From the moment we entered Silks we were greeted with a welcoming smile and extremely courteous although not pretentious staff. We immediately felt very special although welcome. The girls took care to explain the menu to us and throughout the course of the meal, asked us how we found the menu and was there anything else we needed. It was very special. My husband and I were celebrating his birthday and the box of chocolates that came at the end of the meal was a very nice touch. Thankyou.

    Excellent restaurant. From the moment you walked in, you were treated first as a guest to an establishment the waiting staff were proud to be working in. They were attentive, and I would like to make special mention of the manager Wendy, who was thoroughly engaging, and made the evening enjoyable, and very relaxing. The dishes was top notch, with the baked crab shell with alaskan crab meat up there as the best I've had. I can't wait to go back.
