As soon as you walk in, you have to find your own table. I suggest sitting at a table next to an aisle so you have easy access to the dim sum carts. Once you sit down, someone comes around and asks if you want tea. Ladies come around with the carts and they try their best to name the... More

$85 for 2 people. No drinks. Second person ate only 2 lukewarm/cold dumplings and would not eat anymore. This is to expensive for Yum Cha. I will not be going back. A lot of trust is put into an establishment when eating Yum Cha as you do not have a menu to see the prices, Zilvers seem to be taking... More

Went with friends on a Sunday, top tip go early at 10.30 or queue. It is very popular with families especially on a Sunday. Yum cha was served quickly with loads of choices.

My son and I love our duck and go to Zilver for our birthdays in October, however this year we went December. The staff were friendly the food was nice as always, however the sweet and sour pork was a little too much battered.

This recently revamped restaurant is very near Central Station and attracts crowds of patrons. The queue was long at lunch on a Friday. The dishes we had were fine ( perhaps to oily) but the service was slow. The yum cha carts were too few in number for the large crowd. The prices were reasonable.

Okay, it seems there are some reviews that show this as a bad place but it's not, firstly-be prepared for the service being average as this is the norm at any of the yum cha restaurant, these people have a lot to do, secondly-if you don't get there early enough you will have to wait. Personally this is a good... More

I'm fairly sure from some of the recent bad reviews about carpet and decor that Zilver has been recently renovated, as the reception area not yet finished but we found lovely light decor, new carpet and - gasp - excellent bathrooms! We had yum cha this morning and it was sensational. Really wonderful dumplings with a range of interesting fillings,... More
