One of my pet peeves, having food made by chefs not even from the same country your food originated from. Like going into a Japanese restaurant for sushi and to find out that it's not even prepared by the hands of a Japanese worker. No trouble here though. Authentic Thai food made by Thai people. I collected from here last... More

I order a dinner for two online at the website and not even 30 minutes after, the food arrived. We ordered fried egg rice and beef with cashews. Everything was delicious. It's a pity the delivery fee is £2,50.

The chicken chow mein is the best ive had. The shredded chilli chicken is spicy so be careful! The only thing I would say is that you dont get allot of chips in one portion so order two. The staff are friendly aswell so when you leave you feel happy even though you havent had the takeaway yet!

I absolutely adore this place! It's not true that no phone number is available, as it is indeed saved in my contacts. Staff is great, food is great (one of my favourite french fries here in Edinburgh) and I order this at least once a week.

So so bad... terrible crispy shredded beef, was the soggiest ever. So disappointed as it was the best a long time ago. Won't be back!! Get your act together silver bowl as you was the best. Hope you get back to what you were good at. The best Chinese takeaway in town..

I emailed Silver Bowl (there's no phone contact available except to order food) to give them the opportunity to respond before I posted my review. No response, so.... Most of what I ordered was ok, nothing special. The deep fried crispy shredded beef - wow, there are no words as to how sick this made me. It wasn't fresh, I'm... More

I love this place. I'm coeliac and it's quite sensitive, but I don't have any issues after eating here, and take-away is such a risk most of the time. I go for the Gang-dang (sp?) curry and both red and green are gluten free. I always go for either steamed rice or coconut rice and am fine with those too.... More

Just had crispy shredded beef.. Probably the worst I ever had. Nothing but a taste of sweet syrup 😟👎 apparently I need more words to describe how bad it is..
