Used to be a fabulous restaurant, I found it pretty average, to be honest. The food was good, but not top class, as the price might suggest. Won't go back, too many other choices in Haymarket anyhow.

The mark of a good restaurant in Chinatown is the number of Asian diners and Zilver must be one of the best in town. The trolley ladies walk round offering you their speciality, the noise level is high, the tea flows fast and the dim sum are amazing-as are the vegetables, mango pancakes and chicken's feet. Truly an experience and... More

Haven't been here for about a year as I have been away yet pleased me as usual. Great food as always. As we all know service could be abrupt during the peak hours so please go there early before noon.

As soon as you walk in, you have to find your own table. I suggest sitting at a table next to an aisle so you have easy access to the dim sum carts. Once you sit down, someone comes around and asks if you want tea. Ladies come around with the carts and they try their best to name the... More

$85 for 2 people. No drinks. Second person ate only 2 lukewarm/cold dumplings and would not eat anymore. This is to expensive for Yum Cha. I will not be going back. A lot of trust is put into an establishment when eating Yum Cha as you do not have a menu to see the prices, Zilvers seem to be taking... More

Went with friends on a Sunday, top tip go early at 10.30 or queue. It is very popular with families especially on a Sunday. Yum cha was served quickly with loads of choices.

My son and I love our duck and go to Zilver for our birthdays in October, however this year we went December. The staff were friendly the food was nice as always, however the sweet and sour pork was a little too much battered.

This recently revamped restaurant is very near Central Station and attracts crowds of patrons. The queue was long at lunch on a Friday. The dishes we had were fine ( perhaps to oily) but the service was slow. The yum cha carts were too few in number for the large crowd. The prices were reasonable.

Thank Emjmeakin
