Speedy service

A charming restaurant furnished with some of the most ornate imperial style decor I've seen for a long time. I was pleased that they could accommodate my request for non fried tofu . We arrived at 7:30 and the restaurant was almost at full capacity by the time we left. The speed at which the dishes... read more

Takeaway Wednesday night. Decent value, about average quality but overall a bit disappointed given so many good reviews.

Me and my husband had our evening meal here and were greeted by a friendly waiter who was very attentive through-out the meal. We ordered our drinks which were brought to our table fairly quickly and a few minutes later the waiter came to take our food order. When our food arrived at the table it was piping hot and... More

We were a group of eight on a walking weekend. The atmosphere was good and relaxed. The staff were very busy and we had to wait a short while for our orders to be taken but then everything went well. We shared a banquet which was good. If we had all chosen individual dishes the time taken to cook and... More

We were staying in Braithwaite and ordered a takeaway from The Silk Road. We had a early birds special. All food was piping hot, tasty, fresh and the portions were generous. The price was good and we had some leftovers for the next day too!!

Only a few people eating in when we arrived and only two staff waiting on, one of whom spoke no English. Drinks came quickly and our order was taken. There was a constant stream of people coming in for takeaways and they were obviously understaffed. The food when it eventually came was very good but the whole experience was ruined... More

Hadn't booked but not a struggle to get a place, being the only customers. Starters came reasonably promptly but then we became less important than the floods of take away orders. A long wait for the main as the o ly person serving rushed around trying to satisfy take away orders, at one point chasing up the road with a... More
