Fast service and tasty hot dishes

The front of house staff really earns their money. Actually, so does the kitchen. Our party of 6 was greeted by a friendly hostess and we were happy to wait for a table. Once seated the staff quickly provided menus and water. Our waiter kept the glasses filled all evening. Once we started to... read more

Prepare to leave here hungry! Tiny portions of just ok food for high prices. The food is really hit or miss and often times they are out of dishes that we want to order. This place won't be there much longer, has gone downhill in the past two years. Use to be better.

This place surprised me. Usually when a restaurant does different dishes from around the world, they end up doing one or two pretty good and the rest mediocre. Pleased to say that all were good to excellent. Did they taste completely authentic? Well no, but you are in Missoula, MT and you would be asking for the stars. Very good... More

Great food and great service. All of the dishes we tried were exceptional, the presentation and the taste were great. There is a good choice on the menu and we would recommend that everyone who likes olives to try the olive dish they were simply the best olives we have ever tasted. We travel to Missoula 2 or 3 times... More

Made a reservation about 2 weeks before Valentines Day and got the time I wanted. Service was excellent. Can be as dressy or as casual as you want (even though it was Valentines day, there were couples there in jeans and flannel...it's Montana after all). It was such a treat to be able to order several different dishes from various... More

What a cute place! We loved the decor, the strings of lights, the Silk Road inspired small plates menu... We split four plates between us and enjoyed them all. Our favorite was a lamb dish with coconut milk and a kick at the end, but sautéed mixed mushrooms & pork schnitzel were also good. Our server (who was also the... More

This restaurant is "cozy" meaning you can be sitting close enough to the adjacent table to share dishes. But that is the only minor slight Otherwise, this tapas menu is inspired and draws from several different influences. Every dish we tried was a great experience and the wine list complemented the food nicely Service was attentive and helpful with suggestions... More

You might never have experienced this kind of dining within the United States, or if you have, it was probably a special time and a special meal. The Silk Road is a cozy, but interesting venue with plenty of atmosphere, including delightful aromas coming from the kitchen. Service is friendly and prompt as your server explains how it all works.... More
