Set in a former courtroom, Silk in Soho brings innovative Asian-fusion cuisine to a venue brimming with history. Seasonal menus are punctuated with innovative blends of exotic flavours and local produce.

Start with the exciting scallops with artichokes and strawberry salsa, tilapia fish seared in banana leafs, or more traditional options like Thai vegetable spring rolls. The Silk restaurant menu features the delicious grilled duck breast with kumquats, puy lentils and sweet potato mash, and swordfish steak marinated in Thai spices and ginger. Vegetarians aren’t left out with spinach and paneer kofta amongst the mouth-watering options.

The creative fusion cuisine of Silk in The Courthouse hotel is set against the backdrop of a room that has seen the trials of Oscar Wilde, John Lennon and Mick Jagger. The original dock, witness stand, oak panels and glass ceiling combine with sophisticated tableware to create a unique dining experience.

In the heart of Soho , Silk is a 4-minute walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station.

    Strange restaurant, no atmosphere, every table using a voucher deal. The location is quite convenient and the food was fine.

    Absolutely outstanding. Food was delicious and the ambience of the restaurant was perfect.

    What an awful experience. Wish I had read other reviews before booking, as I would not have visited. For only the second time in my life, I wrote to complain.
    The room itself was nice-very traditional, however the air conditioning was on so high that my friend and I had goosebumps and the tea went cold as soon as it was poured!
    The room was empty bar one other pair of diners, but for some reason staff sat us at the table next to them.
    We had been called in the morning to confirm which type of afternoon tea we wanted. We opted for the Asian afternoon tea.
    The food took over an hour to arrive. The other couple had finished their Japanese afternoon tea before ours had even arrived.
    The food was so disappointing. The sandwiches were made with very cheap bread which due to the air con went dry within minutes. The two sweet options were not Indian shortbread and cardamon cake as stated on the menu, but just plain sponge and plain shortbread. Also, the Indian deep fried parcels were not there-instead replaced by a bowl of tortilla chips.
    When I explained my disappointment to the waitress she seemed unfazed and did not offer any kind of explanation, although was not happy when I asked for the service charge to be removed from the bill.
    I am still waiting to hear back from Silk, but I can honestly say I would never go back-my friend's birthday was ruined.

    Very bad experience! Was served after 45' and so much confusion about the price! Food was mediocre and tea was Twinning tea bags! Not what you would expect from a £50 afternoon tea experience!

    Thoroughly enjoyable evening spent at Courthouse Hotel - had a cinema experience gift so decided to try silk restaurant a try. Not disappointed - very calm tranquil dining experience - waiting staff were excellent and attentive without being in your face. Tried the 3 course set Asian menu - all very tasty and although at first I thought the portion sizes looked a bit paltry they were spot on as we couldn't have eaten anymore.

    Would return and would recommend it.

    One minor gripe regarding optional service charge of 12.5% - I opted not to pay it - not because the service was poor but because it doesn't go directly to the staff who served us - its goes into the hotels coffers and then gets distributed to everybody in the food and beverage side of the hotel !!! yeah right !

    I prefer to reward good service to the person delivering it.
