Over priced food and an extremely rude waitress. Our party of ten was rushed in and out, plates swiped from beneath us. No one seemed bothered when we complained. Ruined a lovely family nite for us.

Arrived with our party of 7 to what should have been a lovely evening but the restaurant was a disaster! Here is the litany.... 1. shown to a table which was perfectly laid out but the candle was never lit (minor fault). 2. Asked for water with our drinks. Had to ask a 3rd time before it was delivered to... More

My husband and I have been patrons of Silks since it opened in Malahide many years ago. For the last few years the food was not to the high standard we were used to. They have had their problems and it closed for 3 Months. Thankfully they have reopened and we had a wonderful meal recently. The lighting needs to... More

I traveled on consecutive golf trips for groups of 14 and 20 and on both closing Saturday nights we smartly chose Silks for our finale dinner. The food was delicious and we were well looked after. We had our own room at the back of the restaurant and they set up two large tables to serve us. We let them... More

6 of us had a business dinner here on a Monday night. The restaurant was quiet but the food was very good, the staff very friendly and the atmosphere informal.

This is a very good Chinese in a nice premises in the centre of Malahide Town. Have had some very good late nights here, the food is very good and they don't rush you out - nice when you are there for a Celebration or with a Group late at night. The Service is also very good.

Have been a few times and the food is very good, not the cheapest but I was never disappointed with what I ordered. It's unfortunately never really fully booked, which, on the other hand, makes it a good choice for a last minute dinner, even on a Friday night. The restaurant itself is not really heated and I was a... More

I have been eating at silks chinese restaurant for years now, the food is really lovely, but it tends to be a little pricey, lovely staff and beautiful decor. Will be back again.

I was in Silks restaurant for my in laws 30th Wedding Anniversary and it was wonderful. Now I was a bit taken aback by the staff who at first were not all that welcoming but it was a busy night and the place was busy.

We looked at the reviews before we booked so were surprised to find the restaurant empty when we arrived, and then we were shown to a small table at the edge of the restaurant! The food was good (very large portions!) and the service will be better once the young waitress gets more confidence, the manager was on hand to... More
