“Chinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Myself and the me new Mott entered Silk's restaurant last friday evening........ a little apprehensive due to some mediocre reviews here. However we need not have fretted as the food was very good.
The decor is a little dated, but not so much as to take away from our enjoyment of the meal.
The hostess seemed to know many of the evenings diners and the staff as a whole were pleasant.
Although it is nigh on impossible to steer away from Asian Fusion food in any Chinese restaurant in Ireland, to my mind, the food here is as Chinese as one will get in Dublin.
Definitely not the cheapest.......but absolutely good value.

“Awful and overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

Went here for a birthday meal and was extremely disappointed. Bad (expensive) food, rude staff, and the place is completely run down with outdated, grubby looking decor. Really couldn't believe the price of the food, it's about the same quality as a local take away but not even tasty. Avoid!
