We did the weekday lunch special. The food was exceptional, from lobster dumplings, to the seafood noodles.
The staff were very attentive and the food was of a very very high standard.
The special had 3 rounds of dumplings and a main and a glass of wine per person
We could hardly finish, it is alot of very high quality food.
Will be back

We were invited by our Australian business partners to dine here. Chinese food... but as a Chinese, I would appreciate real Chinese food which I unfortunately found something lacking here. On top of that, it is pricey. Come here for the ambience, not the meal, though I appreciate the thoughtfulness of my hosts.

Fantastic singapore chillie (snow) crab and dinner menu. Loved the service and food. The pork belly was soft and juicy and the prawns were totally awsome. Fantastic evening.

Staff were very friendly and attentive. We had Santa come and join us for a lovely chat which was a great suprise. The food was exquisite. The atmosphere and dècor was classy and elegant. We were seated next to the window overlooking the yarra river and the stunning melbourne skyline. This restaurant is a must if you visit crown casino.

A great evening celebrating my sister's birthday. We have been to Silks many times over the years and it never disappoints, it is a very classy looking restaurant with great service and food. The flames from Crown just outside the window add to the ambience. The dishes we chose were so good - Peking duck, stir fried Japanese scallops, and lamb in Mongolian sauce - all perfect!
