Surprisingly authentic Chinese food

Good service despite packed with customers. Food came pretty fast too. Never imagine could find authentic Chinese food here in Keswick. The fried rice wasn't oily. Neither was the spring rolls which were also crispy. Prices were reasonable too.

Another good value meal at Silk Road. The only slight problem was the amount of time it took to serve, but that was because it was a Saturday evening and a large party of almost 20 came in.

The more positive reviews on Trip Advisor about this place sum it up perfectly. Fairly simple, standard Chinese menu with good pricing. No draught beers on tap but a generous selection of bottled beer and wine. Service was excellent with friendly staff looking after you. Food was good, nice sized portions with typical flavours. If you are looking for an... More

It was a Friday evening in August in Keswick and we were struggling to find somewhere to eat, due to the volume of holidaymakers. Just about to give up and head to a chip shop when we turned into Museum Square in the middle of town and spotted a Chinese restaurant, the Silk Road. Although it was extremely busy, the... More

A popular restaurant in a quiet, pedestrianised lane just off the main street. You get tasty, authentic Chinese food served by helpful, cheerful staff.

The friendly service was excellent and so was the food. The food potions were right, well cooked and presented well. We were well impressed ! Some places in Keswick are over priced and the quality of the food, customer service and pricing leave a lot to be desired.

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
