It is a restaurant of Regents so every plate is really sophisticated and good. I understand you would like to order these famous Chinese cabbage shaped as the sculpture but it is as it is. Beef Noodle is splendid. Service is good.
What happened to the pork

Ordered few dishes of which one was the famous pork. Finish eating everything and waited twenty minutes but pork doesn’t come. Ask waitress multiple time still didn’t come. Finally scold the waitress then immediately served but by then no mood to enjoy.
Ok for a tourist place

Went for dinner before visiting the palace museum. Setting and design nice. Quite busy but the service was fine. Dishes were adequate but not special. Beef noodles were probably the best dish we ordered.
forgot about the cod

The steamed cod with yellow bean topping was also excellent. Though the cod itself wasn't as good as the cod at Yen, the topping at Silks was just fabulous. It's ground yellow beans, slightly crispy. I highly recommend it. If only one could merge the two dishes.
Totally worth going!

Went there for a lunch on a Sunday and this place is full of people - both locals and tourists. This place has few floors and the basement is for causal dining, 1/F is dim sum and it also serves its famous beef noodles and 2/F and above are for fine dining (set dinner, private room...). We booked a table on the 1/F to try their beef noodles. We didn't drop a visit to the museum thou so literally we just went for the lunch. But I think it still worth going and I really look forward to my next visit for dinner. We took metro to Jiannan Road and grabbed a cab there. If you are taking a cab, don't let the taxi driver to fool you and just drop you in the front entrance of the palace area. In fact there is a small entrance on the right hand side which allows taxi / bus / coach to drive up to the museum and the resto. Otherwise, you can take BR20 bus from the metro station.
Anyway, we ordered a few dim sum and of coz 2 of their beef noodle - one spicy and one 'champion'. They do serve half half as well. =) Personally I like the spicy one as the soup is really rich and beef is very tender. Noodles have rich texture too. And dim sum are all very good as well! I am very happy with my lunch. We also tried the premium set lunch. It is quite expensive indeed but if you are sharing with 1 - 2 other friends, still worth trying and YOLO!!!!! This set includes another famous dishes such as the 'cabbage' and the 'fat pork' which imitate the famous art displays in the museum!
Upon leaving the place, it's a bit tricky. If you are going to Shilin Station, I would suggest you NOT to walk downstairs to the main entrance of the park area. Instead, walk towards to the museum and there is actually a bus stop right next to it and you can take R30 bus from there. In case you walk downstairs and get back to the main entrance of the park, there is a bus stop there with more choices of routes. But it was quite chaotic as there are no 'lines' to queue up and we saw a few buses skipped this bus station (?!). So better ask the bus driver to reconfirm before you pay.
BTW the only thing I don't quite like the resto is I think it's too dark inside. And if you go on a sunny day, it would be quite annoying as outside is too bright but inside is too dim. -_____-
