“A bit pricey for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We ate at plenty of restaurants in UB and found Silk Road to be one of the lesser value-for-money destinations. The meals were a little on the small side for the cost and not the best quality. That imnbeing said, it certainly wasn't awful, hence the average rating.

“Amazing Value - Excellent BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Service was excellent. We ordered a BBQ meat dish to share between two of us. Delicious and properly cooked meat. Portion was huge - enough to feed four people. Great value for the price.

“Reliable western cuisine with limited choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

For reliable western cuisine in UB you cannot go past the Silk Road but to describe it as "best food in UB" is a gross exaggeration.

Centrally located in Jamiyan Gun Street, the Silk Road is a cozy retreat in both summer and winter. It used to occupy both floors of the building before "the Veranda" became a separate entity, and in is my opinion, the poorer of the two cousins.

The Silk Road menu is fairly limited, and meals on the menu often are not available. The same is true for items on the wine list.

While the service staff are friendly it can be hard work to attract their attention.

If you enjoy routine, predictable western cuisine, visit the Veranda. You probably won't regret it, but I would invest a few extra steps and climb the stairs to the Veranda above.

“Service was good, food was not”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

I wanted to like Silk Road. I really did. The service was good and it was a nice place. But the food was like a restaurant hotel. Not terrible, but not something that you're excited about eating. I had steak with mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were still very chunky and not very hot. The steak was OK but a bit on the tough side. I've heard that they have a special Mediterranean type meal on the weekend, and I would go try it out for that.
