Excellent service, efficient and very friendly. Interesting selection of Asian food served with tea and plum wine. A different, but fun experience.

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.

    It was very quiet. Food was ok but we enjoyed the evening having both worked at the court many years ago. Not sure I would return

    On arrival we were the only diners in the restaurant. We had a very warm welcome by a delightful and friendly waitress.... we were able to chose were we wanted to sit. The court room is an amazing room and excellent venue for a meal with a difference... great history to the room.
    The food was excellent.... pan Asian and both bring vegetarian we were pleased with the food.... very tasty and nice wine too. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the food.... only four other diners came into the restaurant whilst we were there.... surprising for a Thursday evening as other restaurants around Carnaby Str etc were packed.... a hidden gem. Thank you.

    Unfortunately the 'Silk' experience did not fulfill expectations. The service was very slow, and the food ordered was not exactly what we received. Our waitress was friendly and did her best under difficult circumstances. Presumably there was a staff shortage, especially in the kitchen The saving grace was the food which was tasty.

    A fairly ordinary hotel restaurant with a (mainly) Indian twist, which is fitted into the unusual setting of a magistrates court with an interesting history. Reasonably priced and well cooked food. Service by our Moldovan waitress was friendly & efficient. One downside - after a certain time the aircon started blasting out freezing cold air straight onto our table. The only suggested solution was to move to another table - when we were half way through the meal?

    The atmosphere was good. The service was good. The food was OK. I would say that we didn't really like having little children in the restaurant in the evening - quite distracting however good the parents are.

    Nice restaurant, brilliant atmosphere but let down by food and service. Starters were good but was downhill from there. Mains tasted less than ordinary for both of us, while dessert was bad I had to complain to which I was told it was supposed to be like that!

    second visit to this restaurant that was so far removed from the first visit, food ordered was very poor and the waiting staff were as bad.We asked the waitress what each meal comprised of, her reply was that she would have to ask the chef but she failed to give us any information which led me to believe that this did not happen. On this particular experience there is no way we would recommend this restaurant!!!
