Silakan masuk. Would be a more natural sentence would it not?

It accepted, "Good evening, please." Please what? I agree it should be 'silakan masuk.'

It didn't accept that from me just now. I was also wondering about please what?

You should put "silakan masuk," instead of it being just "silakan."

"Selamat malam" can be anywhere from sundown to 3 in the morning - perhaps "good night" can also be acceptable?

I agree, I would say good night would be better.

Inside wherever you want to be (e.g. your house).

The English is kind of misleading. It should be "Good evening, please come in." "Good evening, please." only makes sense if there's a hand gesture waving a person in.

Yes, that confused me too. "Good evening, please" by its self makes no sense.

Why would anyone say "good evening, please?"
