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.

    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!!!

    Courtroom surroundings were a novelty. Food and drink were good value for money. Will go back.

    Lovely meal and nice venue. The staff (especially Dimitar) were wonderful. My girlfriend is vegan and they made a special meal for her which she really enjoyed. Thanks Silk!

    I took a friend for her birthday and we had a wonderful time. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us and the cocktails were fab.

    As a couple who have travelled often to Japan, we were a little disappointed by the Japanese Afternoon Tea. Maybe it's fine for those not already familiar with Japanese food, but overall most of this was way off. Smoked salmon in the maki? Why not proper raw salmon? The gyoza were soggy, the edamame were somehow oily, yet completely un-seasoned. The panko chicken was ok but could have had some sauce with it. Tempura should be served with it's own dashi for dipping (not just the soy sauce). The best part of the meal truly were the deserts... the azuki mochi and matcha mouse were lovely. The only "Japanese" tea offered was a plain green tea (from a tea bag). If this is really "Japanese Afternoon Tea" why not offer more Japanese teas, e.g. Matcha, Genmai, Houji?
    I'm also very glad we got this on a voucher. If we'd paid full price per person for one bento box (between 2), tea from tea bags and small plum wines, I'd be pretty annoyed.
    Overall though we did enjoy our meal. The court house is a very interesting venue (make sure you have a look round the other areas such as the bar with the old prison cells). The staff were friendly and attentive. But if you know proper Japanese cuisine you will be disappointed.

    Loved that it was an old courtroom, perfect dining experience for my aunt - a lawyer. The duck was divine, came highly recommended by our waitress and it did not disappoint.

    The service provided was excellent and the staff were very welcoming for and polite.
    The food portions could have been bigger! the tandoori chicken and panner would have tasted better in some sort or sauce!
