Tucked away in an elegant dining room just off the hotel lobby, Silk restaurant in London is the culinary and architectural focal point of the Courthouse Hotel, boasting a history as rich and colourful as its exotic menu.
The combination of Silk’s classic courtroom setting and innovative Asian fusion cuisine, offers a London fine-dining restaurant experience with unique appeal, quite unlike any other venue in central London in terms of ambience.
Lit by a stunning vaulted glass ceiling and framed in English Oak panelling, the vibrant eatery features the original judge’s bench, dock and witness stand from its days as the Great Marlborough Street Magistrates Court, which witnessed the trials of Oscar Wilde, Mick Jagger and John Lennon. Now a destination for more culinary pursuits, the restaurants’ past has been superbly incorporated to create a charming, romantic dining venue.

Sampling flavours from the ancient oriental trade pathways, diners take a culinary journey down the historic “Silk Route” with seasonally inspired menus of locally and internationally sourced ingredients, expertly prepared by Head Chef Rajesh Parmar and his talented team. Harking back to the days when spices were traded as precious commodities across the sub-continent and beyond, dishes are infused with the treasured tastes of the east, focusing on Chinese, Indian and Thai accents paired to create arresting flavour compositions.

Signature dishes include scallops seasoned with Kaffir lime leaf on strawberry salsa & refreshing chilli, cilantro coconut froth, a delicious interpretation of Jungli Maas, comprised of tender Kentish Roe Deer, chilli paste, coriander seeds &, smoked vegetable salad and the Pla Yang Krachai, sea bream fillets with fresh red chilli Krachai (lesser ginger) and garlic.

As the menu is re-worked two to three times per year, the flavours and themes are constantly fresh and exciting, promising a sensational dining experience on every occasion. Diners have the option of a-la-carte cuisine, a three-course set menu, ideal for pre and post theatre meals or a range of enticing degustation menus ranging from three to five courses, which must be booked in advance.
Silk is a magnificent venue for civil wedding ceremonies and reception dinners, offering an intimate antique setting for the exchanging of vows, whether by daylight or candlelight, and stylish functions, events and private dining in the West End can also be accommodated.

Silk is open Tuesday to Saturday in the evening from 6.00pm to 11.00pm.Last orders are at 10.30pm. Opening times may vary during bank holidays. It is recommended that you make a reservation on +44 (0) 20 7297 5555.
