“Not enough to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

No complaints whatever about the quality of service or the food, just that the size of the portions was quite small. We're not particularly large eaters, but we left feeling somewhat hungry. Perhaps we just chose badly. Atmosphere not exactly electric in the early evening, but very convenient place to visit as it's right next to the main Hunstanton-King's Lynn main road.

“Good Chinese Wrong info”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We have stayed near here very often and struggled to find a good place to eat at a reasonable price untill now.
We picked one of the fixed menus at £19 so it is our fault that the choices were standard chinese restaurant dishes. There were several more unusual choices on the menu though.
The food was perfectly prepared and the quantities were more than adequate, in fact we couldn't finish it. The staff were also very attentive and friendly.
We nearly didn't manage to find it because the address, phone number and map location are all wrong on tripadvisor. It is actualy on the main Lynn road next to a BP garage. The correct phone number is 01485572268.

“Great food, fast service and take-away too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The Silk Road looks like many other restaurants but the range of dishes, quality of produce used and attentive but unobtrusive service make this restaurant very special.
The take away service is the same as for seated diners - fast and courteous; the In house till on which orders are logged recognises former clients by name based -I think- on stored telephone numbers which are recognised immediately you call to place an order.
Huge meal for two at £17 each but be prepared to be eating Chinese food for two nights, there is so much. But that's not a proble, it reheats perfectly anyway.

“Great chef, deteriorating waiter quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Silk Road used to have friendly energetic waiters - the best days of service seem to be a thing of the past. The friendly waiters that remembered customer names and chatted as they efficiently took the order have returned to Malaysia. In their place are a bunch of surly staff that speak little English and don't know a smile from a scowl. I recommend takeaway as the food is fresh, clean and varied and then you don't have to look at the waiters. Avoid the Sunday buffet where the food is abundant but often overcooked or cold, the sauces too sweet or to salty.
