Walk past the softly trickling water feature and into this opulent and sophisticated Chinese restaurant, which has been designed in the style of a Chinese mansion. The restaurant's décor features a warm and inviting palette of chocolate-toned furniture and flooring, cream plush carpet and accents of gold, caramel and coffee throughout.
The restaurant's trademark gold chopsticks, glistening glassware and custom-made crockery, heavy linen napery and tablecloths continue to be hallmarks of a dining experience at Silks. Spectacular views of the city lights are reflected in all the golden glowing colours.CHEF PROFILE

FOOD & BEVERAGE
A common saying in China that aims to summarise the complexities of Chinese cuisine in a single sentence is, "east is sweet, south is salty, west is sour, north is spicy." Silks menu features dishes from authentic Chinese regional cuisines including an array of Northern Chinese, Sichuan, Cantonese and Shanghainese additions and an enhanced selection of teas. Think tossed jellyfish head with Chinese aged vinegar and garlic or sweet and sour short ribs marinated with herbs.FUNCTIONS
