Went to Silapa the night before they closed - after 18 years. We had a very pleasant meal - as always. Another friend went there the evening they closed, A closing that will be missed!

Although frontage is small, easy to identify with Eiffel Tower model at front door. Food is good and service is acceptable. Staff not proficient in English but still can order without much trouble. Food is pricey, but this is standard for French restaurants in Asia.

Don't judge this restaurant by the exterior. Go up the stairs from the I Beam bar and find yourself in a high ceilinged room with original art of the walls. The food is exceptional as is the service. Great French food and worth every penny

Silapa (upstairs) and ibeam (downstairs) closed permanently on 31 May 2017. Frederique, the owner, decided it was time for a break and reflect on what to do next. The venue will be missed!
