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

Average service, not that cheap and the taste is not memorable. However, if you are after Chinese, there not many to choose from in Keswick.

Ordered a banquet meal for two, not the best, restaurant very cold and kept coat on for entire meal. Lovely waitress though and they did seem understaffed food reasonable but did not get all of the dishes right, beef in black bean sauce instead of beef satay. Not expensive and ll consider a revisit and reassess. Restaurant was full.

We found The Silk road on our first night in Keswick. We had tried 2 other restaurants, both packed and fully booked for later, and the Silk road was set back off the main street a little and only had one couple in when we arrived and were offering set meals outside which made us a little nervous. On entering... More

Visited Keswick in the Lake District of Cumbria and wanted a nice meal. Found the Silk Road Chinese restaurant down a side lane off the Main Street. We were greeted warmly and served immediately. We had the special @ £13.50 a head and it consisted of crab and corn soup, a starter platter of chicken, spare ribs, Spring rolls, prawn... More

We went early evening and it was easy to get a table for two. The service was quick and efficient. We had the three course set menu. It was ok ; pretty much what you would expect.

Got seated no problem without a booking. 3 of the party had nearly finished their starters (soup) by the time the 4th arrived - after a few reminders. It went better from there - the food was good. It's obviously popular, there was a steady stream of takeways and deliveries going out of the door - Perhaps this focus on... More
