We have eaten at The Silk Road numerous times before when we have visited Keswick and we suggested this to our family for a Christmas Eve treat. It didn't disappoint! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Great food, friendly staff. We had crispy duck as a starter which was very nice and there was plenty. Then each chose their own main... More

Visited here with the husband. Both had crispy duck for starters which was heaven, very tasty! I had Thai chicken special which was spicy and enjoyable. Hubby had Lemon chicken which he said was good but a little dry. The staff were not in your face but friendly enough... Not the best Chinese I've been to but would return.

Ordered a quick midweek take away as I got in late and couln't be bothered to cook. Ordered Kung Po chicken, which was advertised as 'spicy' and egg fried rice. Kung Po was bland, and pretty tasteless. It wasn't hot or spicy, and looked orange and congealed. Rice was tasteless. This is the first and last time that i will... More

Having read all the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to give The Silk Road a try. Must admit to being disappointed. The restaurant is in need of a make over, it was cold inside and the food was nothing special. The only saving grace was that it is reasonable priced.

Feel the food has no taste, and the atmosphere and decoration are very cheap, good point but not recommended in the dining room

Ordered a takeaway from here the other night - two chicken curries with rice. Mediocre isn't enough to describe the food. Microwaved chicken with what seemed to be watered down, glutinous curry sauce. VERY disappointed. Won't patronise this establishment again!
