My family and I are regulars here! The owners are very friendly and I've never seen them not smiling or making jokes with us. The food I've received has never had any problems and I've been coming here for years, I'd say 6/7+ years. Ill probably be coming back to Keswick to see family and will hopefully be coming here...

Visited here on New Years eve. Busy as you would expect but good service non the less. We had vegetable spring rolls to start then a chicken curry and a sizzling king prawn in green pepper and black bean sauce. Both very good. Was very good value for money.

This little restaurant is a hidden gem in Keswick. It is tastefully decorated in chinese style and has a nice warm atmosphere. The service is efficient and the food is of a good quality with plenty of choice. The sizzling fillet beef was particularly good, would definitely recommend.

First time we have visited the Silk Road,the food was good,lots of it,reasonably priced. Staff very friendly and efficient with very quick service. Liked the very clear and typed itemised bill in English,something a lot of Chinese restaurants don't provide. Would recommend.

We have been regular visitors to Keswick over many years. July and October this year, when we have been self catering we have used The Silk Road many times. The food and service has always been excellent.

ate on a Friday night but it was reasonably quiet which was nice and relaxing great menu with good veggie options which you don't always get really good value for money
