A fun place with a decent wine list and a great selection of tapas, not large and sometimes barely enough to split, but always beautifully done, tasty, and with good service.

We arrived without a reservation but we're able to be seated at 6.30pm, we ordered at least 4 different dishes and enjoyed them all, service was very attentive as well and even gave us insight on things to do on our holiday

What a treat to discover this excellent Tapas restaurant in Missoula. Every one of our 5 selections was delicious, especially the salmon and the tenderloin skewers. An easy walk from downtown and well worth a visit.

Four of us ordered multiple small plates which we shared. The variety of tastes and textures was wonderful. And all tasted great. Two small dessert plates were all we wanted, and those tastes popped out too. The wait staff were pleasant and helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting eating experience. I thought it was somewhat "pricey", but worth it.

Our B and B host suggested this place to us. We ate here two nights ago. The menu is as diverse as I have ever seen including dishes typical of German, SE Asia, America, China, etc. Dishes are small, a bit like tapas. My wife and I ordered five items, crab dip, fries with a wine reduction sauce and fresh... More

I've been a 3 year patron of the Silk Road and it has been my favorite restaurant in Montana since I Moved in 2011. I do get around the state and there are several restaurants that come close but none have topped Hands down it was the best.

A few hours at this little Tapas gem was the food equivalent of a trip around the world. Our party of three each ordered entire sections of the menu to share: Mediterranean, Asia and Europe. The moans of delight that ensued sounded like *That Scene* in When Harry Met Sally ("I'll have what she's having..."). We started with sautéed mushrooms,... More
