About Silk

The combination of Silk’s classic courthouse setting and innovative Asian fusion cuisine has resulted in a high-concept dining experience not to be missed. The traditional oak-panelled room at the Kempinski Hotel - formerly the infamous Number One Courtroom where Oscar Wilde, Mick Jagger and John Lennon have stood trial - contrasts with the contemporary, cutting edge cooking and Silk’s zen ambience, but helps creates a unique and cosy vibe. Head Chef Bobby Kapoor - has created a menu inspired by the silk route, blending Italian, Asian and Middle Eastern influences. Signatures dishes include the scallops served in a delicately spiced ginger and coconut froth, and deep fried wing beans served with sweet chilli sauce. Silk is recommended in the Michelin guide 2008
