This is located in Museum Square, off Main Street in Keswick. We also ate at Golden Hills Restaurant on Main Street and found the cooked dishes better at The Silk Road. We, however, liked the fried rice and soups at the Golden Hills. Prices at both restaurants are comparable, but The Silk Road is more spacious and has a more... More

Went here for the first time although been to Keswick on numerous occasions, it's a bit off the main pedestrian area so maybe that's why it's overlooked, so glad we decided to give it a go, we had the three course special @ £13.50 pp which was excellent value, good portions for each course so well pleased, we will definitely...

Having looked forward to a Chinese meal we found the Silk Road restaurant not visible from the road. The decor was different and spacious with many Chinese fittings and was welcoming. Service was good and food portions a good size though drinks expensive for the dining experienced which is why marked down...also nothing to clean hands after the ribs!

I don't think that the food we got for our take away was cooked fresh, it must have been cook chill as the man on the phone that took our order said it would be ready in 5 minutes!!!! We ordered mixed combo for 2, shredded beef in Kung po sauce, which was appalling, Luke warm at best, I had... More

I have eaten in at The Silk Road just once about 2 years ago and wasn't impressed with the service. It seem's the in house service hasn't improved much. So on this occassion whilst in Keswick we decided we'd try take away. We were impressed. Very speedy service, and lovely food. A friendly staff member served us and even wished... More

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
