We have been here lots of times over the years and still find the set menu is excellent value. The service on this occasion was very good (although it was early evening with not many people in the restaurant).

Visited here as soon as they opened one rainy Friday evening. We were the only diners there. Decided on the set menu, which compromised of a selection of soups, starter and main. The soups were both excellent, as were the duck pancakes. Both of the main courses were let down a little by the rubbery chicken. Flavour wise, everything was... More

We visited here after reading other reviews. Unfortunately we were disappointed. Perhaps they were having a bad day, but the service was slow and the food was average. We ordered a starter platter that was missing seaweed (as described on the menu). Instead we received a substitute on our plate with no explanation or apology until we commented. Sadly the... More

It's always great to get something to eat immediately on arrival- especially with children- so the free prawn crackers were v welcome. They topped us up twice more without us asking- much appreciated! They didn't do a kids menu so the four is us had the £13.50 banquet each. Soup ( which we skipped), mixed starters OR duck (we had...

Visited on Wednesday 17th. We decided upon the set menu as it looked the best value and it would save us combing through the menu. Good quality and certainly decent sized portions. Chinese food can sometimes have a reputation for blandness if not done properly but not the case here. Would certainly visit again if in Keswick

We had the supreme banquet for two which was excellent. Food was freshly cooked and there was plenty of it. Service was good. Would recommend.

Staff were great and the food was to die for. Definitely recommend this, if you do prefer your food a bit spicy - try the Thai option. It all tastes good.

We visited last week for an evening meal and there was an excellent choice, we had the menu offering 3 courses for a set amount but the main menu was even more varied. The service was good, the food hot and tasty and the surroundings comfortable. Would certainly visit again if we are in Keswick.

Used the silk road as a takeaway before and had no concerns. However using the restaurant was a whole new ball game. I guess the fact it was the only place to eat on a very busy Saturday in June spoke volumes. It was practically empty. The food was OK albeit bland Bottled water served warm! However the reason iam... More
