We enjoyed a lot of different dishes to share - all of them were very delicious and nicely presented. It's a beautiful spot to sit there on their terrasse overlooking the Mekong and in the new upper terrasse, there is always a nice refreshing breeze....More

We came solely for the vibe (colorful and fun), and were amazed by the quality of our food. We ordered an Indian wrap and a salad, and both were a delicious change of pace. When you visit, be sure to check out the associated store.More

Perfect spot for lunch, great food. Don’t be put off by dirt road - cars (or Tuk Tuk) can drop off but have to park 50m back. High quality handicrafts and lessons - they also have special events including movie night once a month.More

Description
Enjoy delicious 'East meets West' cuisine at the Silk Road Cafe. A beautiful and relaxing location in the grounds of a stunning tropical garden with sweeping views of the Mekong, just a short distance from the centre of town - 5 mn ride with our free tuk tuk available all day on demand. Watch our traditional weavers at work at the Living Crafts Centre next door. Serving breakfast and lunch as well as brunch or afternoon tea, it's the perfect place to escape and gaze across the river.
