“Silver Bowl Chinese Poor.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Very very disappointing Chinese food. Please do not get this review confused for a review of the Thai restaurant which is delicious. The Chinese food however, could not differ more. My dish genuinely smelt like lemon toilet cleaner and everything was a thick gelatinous mess. I would advise anyone wanting a Silver Bowl takeaway to get the THAI. Far far far more delicious and fresh. I eat there often. Chinese was so disappointing. :( My Brother and Father said their dishes were equally as bland.

“Order the day before and it might be here on time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Food is ok. Nothing special, exorbitantly expensive and either they go to Thailand after you order for the ingredients or fall asleep for a couple of hours between you ordering a them making it. Appalling service, totally not worth it for the food either.

“Best Thai Curry I've Ever Eaten!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

What a brilliant takeaway - certainly for Thai food anyway. We ordered a variety of starters, main dishes and sides and thought the price was very reasonable for the amount we ordered. When the food came (we got it delivered), we realised just how good value for money this place is - it was fantastic. Tasty, plenty of meat, real care taken with the dishes and it looked so good too. I would definitely recommend the Silver Bowl and will be ordering from them again for sure.

“Excellent Thai food! Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

We've been getting Thai takeaway food from Silver Bowl for years and have never been disappointed. Excellent, tasty and suitably spicy meals. I've spent a lot of time in Thailand and eaten fantastic food over there, and whilst I wont pretend that this is on par with Thailand, for Thai food in Scotland it's really very good (and takeaway is much more cost effective than visiting the overpriced Thai restaurants in town). I'm usually dubious about places that do more than one cuisine but Silver Bowl do it well.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Ordered the Thai from Silver Bowl for delivery a few times. The quality is consistently good (something that I really appreciate), and I've tried a few dishes and enjoyed them all. The tom yum soup in particular is really nice (vegetarian and chicken), and the pad thai, dim sum, sweet & sour chicken & chicken green curry were very nice. Ordered a selection of dishes to share with friends, which worked well :)
