What can i say after terrible service at the "star of siam" this restaurant saved the day. Yes this place is hidden a way but is a definate diamond in the rough. The portion sizes are amazing and it will not completely empty your wallet. The service was fast and that was for 5 people literaly less than 10 minutes!... More

After reading a few bad reviews about this place me and my partner were cautious about visiting. What a shock we got!! Not only were the staff friendly and extremely attentive the food was amazing for the value (the only thing pricey were the drinks which added up to nearly as much as the meal for 4 soft drinks!!) a...

Have been before but this time was disappointed. Waitress didnt seem in any hurry to serve, had to request the table was cleaned as sticky and the whole place seemed depressing. Hardly any other customers on the night we went in. Food tasty enough but will not return

It may have been an off day , but I don't think so. The service was lacking and the waiter very confused. The "chicken in Peking sauce" tasted like HP sauce and the whole evening was awful, being typical english, we said thank you and left, never to return.

As a local chef myself I had not tryed silk road for many years due to its random location some dodgy decor slightly hidden away and it has Xmas lights in the window on show all year around but we decided to try it as we were fed up with what was our regular Chinese unplugging the phone when busy...

Found this restaurant almost by accident looking for somewhere else. 4 course meal £13:50 seasonal offer. Only one lady on duty coping both with confused takeout people and waiting on so a little delay before she got round to us. Worth the wait. Thursday a quieter day for diners - only one other couple dining in but lots of takeaway... More

We regularly have take away food from here - absolutely delicious - particularly the shar sui curry and salt and pepper chips. Recently we had a sit down meal for my parents-in-law's diamond wedding - food and service - PERFECT!

This is one of our regular restaurants that we visit when we come to Keswick. We even stopped here for dinner when travelling back from Scotland once. Great food, probably one of the best Chinese restaurants. This time we had the special 3 course meal which was excellent value. Well worth a visit.
