Silks Palace at the National Palace Museum
Services & Facilities
Some of the best Dim Sum and Beef Noodles I ever haveI got there before the crowd (around 11:15 am), got a chance to soak in the nice environment. Ordered shrimp roll - very crispy and not overly oily; beef noodle - good soap base, meat, noddle and unique vegetable pairing.

Two sides to the this restaurant; book the PARK sideWe planned a full day at the Museum and were pleased to learn that our day could include lunch at a noted restaurant right next door. While we enjoyed the meal of traditional delicacies, we were disappointed in the service and surroundings. We had made considerable effort to pre-book so we could enjoy our dining experience, but the receptionist couldn't be bothered to find our reservation and we were shoehorned into a back corner right beside the kitchen entrance on the street side of the restaurant. If you go, make a reservation before and be sure to book the PARK view side of the restaurant; this will provide the peaceful aesthetic needed to really enjoy the fine cuisine.
Doesn't live up to the hypeI had read some rave reviews of Silks Palace and insisted we'd go here for a late lunch after our visit to the National Palace. It was a rainy day and the restaurant was not completely full, it was a little chilly inside too. Prices were considerably higher than what we'd experienced so far in Taipei, but I figured it would be worth it. I ordered the fried shrimp dish and my boyfriend went for the beef noodle soup. Our drinks (melon juice - not my best idea) arrived quite fast, and my boyfriend's soup followed. However my dish appeared to have been forgotten. It took an uncomfortably long time before our waitress noticed I still hadn't received any food, after which I witnessed some fussing and I suspect they went to check. Meanwhile I had already urged my boyfriend to just start eating. When my dish arrived it was no longer warm... Apart from this mishap, I also wasn't super impressed with the quality/taste. It was fine but not worth the gushing reviews. While we were having lunch some other diners had ordered the tea set. I do see the (instagram) appeal of those, very cute. So I'd recommend to go for tea and not lunch here.
Fine diningA Chinese fine dining restaurant located in the museum compound. We had course dinner with a good variety of delicacies served by attentive staff. The cabbage dish was decorated exactly as the exhibit in the museum!
