We ate where whilst on holiday the food was hot and tasty, the waiter was friendly and very helpful with out choice we were going to order to much food and he suggest we drop a dish - you don't get that very often! - We would recommend to anyone.

We ate here as we couldn't get into the Golden Hills on a Saturday night, and we would have come back on the following Tuesday- but it was shut. Having eaten at the Golden Hills that night, we have to say we preferred this restaurant for atmosphere. It is a bit dated and needs redecoration, but the tables are spread... More

Six of us ate here this evening, starters, main and desserts. Food was very good except half way through eating I found a large misquote type fly in my sweet and sour chicken. Discreetly went and and told the lady behind the bar who apologised. I sat back down and they brought over a me plateful. Was surprised that when... More

We had a very enjoyable meal at The Silk Road while on holiday. It was a Saturday night and the place was nicely busy but not packed so we got in without needing to book. The food is good while not having the most fancy presentation we've ever had in a Chinese. The service was friendly and the owner was... More

My wife and I visit end this place in June 2014. We found this place with reasonable prices. The front house is run by only 2 European guys although it is Chinese but they were excellent in service. They managed very well serving the customers with about 6-7 tables full and take always. Food was ok too but could do... More

Used to love this place, for eating in and takeaways but i would prefer neither now! Apparently the place was taken over, which would explain a lot! Lovely atmosphere inside but the food is just not up to standard.

We visited this restaurant during the early part of April - the food was very nice, but the restaurant was freezing cold and the staff did not seem to understand when we said we were cold. Consequently the food got very cold very quickly and although this was our second visit I am not sure we will go again.

We stumbled across this place during an impromptu stay in Keswick. It was packed and had a very good dinner offer for £13.50pp. The soup starters were really great and very tasty. There was then a generous portion of Peking duck for 2 followed by two really nice mains with lovely big prawns. It was hectic due to the full... More

We ordered a takeaway from here last week. I had a Chinese chicken curry which was lovely, my husband ordered chicken in a honey type sauce. Even though it was really tasty it was pretty dry as there wasn't enough sauce. We also ordered chips and egg fried rice, and the portions were very generous. We have had takeaways from... More

Our second visit to this restaurant and once again the food and service were excellent and reasonably priced. It is only a shame that the restaurant is looking old and could do with a refurb/facelift.
