Described by Neil Perry as ‘Perth’s best Chinese restaurant’, Silks – with a kitchen team lead by experienced Head Chef Pat Cheong – is certainly a treat for lovers of Asian fine dining.
Located in the Crown Perth complex, once inside you will feel a world away from the bustling gaming floor. A trio of enormous Chinese vases atop a plinth make a great visual impact on arrival. Soft beige furnishing, plush seating and regal red carpets create a feeling of opulence and grandeur. The well-thought-out wine list includes a selection of French champagne and Grange.
The Peking duck pancakes are delicate and delicious, and come with a shooter glass of duck broth. Seafood and fresh live fish can be cooked to your liking with your own selection of ingredients. The menu also includes local delicacies such as abalone and sea cucumber. While seafood features strongly on the menu, there are meat, poultry and vegetarian options too. Why not try the dry-aged Rangers Valley Black Angus striploin with truffle–mandarin sauce – a delicious and memorable dish.
PSST! There is a separate seafood-focused dim sum menu available at lunchtime.
