My family and I went to Silk for dinner after walking around Portland most of the day. We were tired, hungry, and thirsty but we didn't want to eat just anywhere. We decided to try Silk and even though we didn't have reservations, we were seated within 5 minutes of walking in the door.
The decor is understated and classy but still comfortable for us in our jeans and tennis shoes. We ordered an appetizer of dumplings, which came in a bowl with a sauce drizzled over them. The dumplings were good but the sauce was wonderful. I could have eaten just the sauce and been very happy. I ordered the Crazy Noodles (but requested no peanuts, which the restaurant was happy to do). My daughter ordered a carmelized pork dish, and my fiance ordered a curry dish. Each meal was delicious in its own way--the curry was spicy but not overwhelming, the carmelized pork was sweet and tender, and the crazy noodles had a wonderful, complex flavor that I enjoyed from the first bite to the last.
The service was good and efficient. Our server was very businesslike and moved quickly between her tables. She didn't present as friendly but certainly came across as a professional who does her job well.
If I am ever in Portland again, I will keep Silk on my list of places worth returning to.
