I've been going here for over a year after having it reccomended by friends and love sharing the experience with people. The usual image I get with chinese food, is greasy, bland flavours and fried to hell and back. Silk Road manages to avoid all...More

We made a reservation and came here for dinner one night to get outside of the hustle and bustle of central London and we were not disappointed. It is very reasonably priced but be aware that they are CASH only. The building and inside isn't...More

I don’t recall it being especially spicy. But you may well not get very clear or comprehensive advice from staff as to which dishes to avoid. It is frenetic and very Chinese language dominated! Possibly best left.
