We were rather disappointed last night by a rather average takeaway meal from the Silk Road in Keswick. The order was admittedly very large, and we were told that it would be best to return after half an hour, which we did. It was therefore unsatisfactory to have to wait for a further fifteen minutes, particularly when the meal we... More

set meal for 2 people £30 a bargain, generous portions of excellent quality tasty food. The staff were friendly even though the place was busy. Will hopefully visit again.

We were greeted with maybe a language barrier but it didn't feel terribly good to have the door closed on us. When we got through the door we were then pointed to the table and left. No pleasantries, just a grunt, as he walked away from us. We were then served by a pleasant, hard working chap who just seemed... More

Whilst camping in Keswick we picked up a menu during the day as we walked around the shops to use in the evening. We were impressed by the £2 off voucher on orders over £20 and free delivery within 2 miles both dominating the front cover of the menu. We ordered food and they tried to put us off the... More

Lovely food and service, restaurant had pleasant atmosphere and discount of £2 is offered with takeaway orders over £20 plus free delivery within a 2 mile radius so even better! Food arrived hot and the wait for takeaway order was only 5 mins. Overall, good value for money and will definitely return next time in Keswick.

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
