Came in here after a very long day. I was seated very quickly but told I could only keep my table for 40 minutes, as there was a reservation and the place was filling up with bookings. I ordered an amazing cucumber salad, rice and...More

Delicious Chinese restaurant and definitely worth the trek from North London! Very reasonably priced and a lot of interesting dishes that you don't usually see. The cabbage was some of the best I've ever eaten, and there was a really nice variety of vegetarian food...More

This has to be one of London’s best Chinese restaurant. Visited after numerous personal recommendations, which is normally a good sign. SR does not disappoint in any areas. Loved the cucumber salad, cabbage and lamb noodles. Unbelievable value for money.

Chinese food that will not disappoint you. Everything we ordered was perfect. The skewed fish and the spiced beef (cold plate) were highlights. Crowded with locals.

All dishes contained copious amount of chilli, including those very few dishes indicated on the menu as being 'non spicy'. If you don't eat spicy food, this restaurant is definitely not for you. The highly specific regional cuisine of Xinjiang Province is characterised by being...More

The food here is delicious. Authentic and well spiced - good value for money too. It’s always packed and that is a testament to just how tasty the food is. I’ve been here 4 times and I travel for about 45 mins. Be sure to...More

Fantastic food- you can rely on Silk Road for a delicious meal. It's incredibly busy so book ahead, especially at the weekend. Tables are shared, which may not be too everyone's taste, but otherwise it's perfect for a fun night out and plenty of pubs...More

The food here is pretty spicy. You'll be likely to get the chilli hiccups in no time. Perhaps best avoided.

Download the Citymapper app. It really helps for London and Silk Road can be tricky to find.
