Mediocre food, service terrible , confusing menu ( less confused when in country where there was a Language barrier) cramped dinning area (unless they are trying for the suk or traditional bazaar effect, which is also a miss ) small portions , large prices great for the small town effect. But if but if you have been to these country's... More

The Risho's have been part of the Missoula restaurant scene for over 40 years. The Silk Road offers "world class" cuisine for this part of the world. The portions are small and quite pricey, but unique in the spices, preparation and presentation.

If you don't order wine, this is a very reasonable dining experience. Sharing dishes is the best way to go. Be sure to try the crab dip. The two of us made it out the door at $12 each (except for the wine, which is probably where they make their money).

We went there one night not knowing what to expect, what we got was a very nice surprise, the food was excellent and the service was the best in town! We had a great evening of fantastic and very different dishes, and great service! So unexpected in Missoula.

My husband and I have now had several wonderful meals over the past couple of years at The Silk Road. It is our favorite date night restaurant. We have eaten at other restaurants that try to cook a variety of food from different ethnic backgrounds/regions and most of them do it poorly. The Silk Road masters it! I highly recommend... More

It's best to go here with friends so you can order a lot of different dishes and try all the flavours. The place has gotten quite pricey, and I feel the portions are also getting smaller. Very tasty food and a very good wine selection. Not a place I would go every month, but one a quarter with good friends... More

We love the fact that you can pick and share a variety of foods. The coffee and desert is out of this world but it has to be a special occasion or really good friends to justify the price.

As a vegetarian, there are so many delicious and price friendly options to have multiple tapas! The sangria and beer/wine selection is also wonderful, and with lots of non-vegetarian options, there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. My favorites on the menu right now (it changes every couple months) include the paneer masala, beet empanada and the fries, make... More

The ambiance and general feel of the restaurant match perfectly with its diverse menu. The food was hit or miss for me, and when paying $10 for a very small portion I expect it to be more hit than miss. The Beef Togarashi was particularly good, but the cod was quite forgettable, The idea of the restaurant is great, it's... More

We loved the way all the tapas came from many different places in the world. We were with friends and family and everyone found something to their liking. The small portions were a good way to try a variety of things. They also had wine and sake flights, which is a fun way to try different wines. Prices were reasonable... More
