Not too posh for a special family meal and with attentive, friendly service. For a big party you can book a tent or a private room. Lovely view out over Southbank and the Yarra so you can see the city light up. From the balcony you can watch the Southbank passeggiata and the tall flares outside Crown will go off... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here for a birthday celebration. The menu is extensive so we opted for the banquet menu and really enjoyed it. The service was also very good.

Have eaten here many times for special occasions, or just to enjoy a lovely atmosphere and feel special. The food at silks just melts in your mouth, the service is wonderful and I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

We enjoyed the $88 banquet for my husband and I and we bought the san choy bow and spring rolls for our 6 year old son. The food was absolutely delightful and the service was wonderful. The staff were fabulous and attentive. Only real issues were that the caret in the entrance smells very damp, another couple were seated directly... More

Chinese food at its best ! Very good selection of food on the menu but extremely pricey Best to ask for the Set menu They don't offer it at all It's worth the experience but you must be prepared to pay top dollar for a lovely evening I love the casino as a special occasion destination !!

The restaurant has an excellent location and a classy interior. The food though not bad is not at the same level. In simple places in China one finds tastier dishes.
