Fabulous variety in the menu allows diners to choose international tapas to fit their tastes. This restaurant has been our go-to choice for any guests who don't have to have a giant steak, and everyone is uniformly delighted by the always-changing choices available for sharing. The Rishos and their staff do a superb job of making everyone happy, ranging from... More

We had a delicious meal here, with wonderful service at the bar (a gorgeous antique affair) superb wine, fabulous beignets for a decadent finish to the meal. What a shame this place is closing, we will remember it as a highlight of our trip to Missoula.

Best small plates meal we have ever had. The broccoli was exquisite and the beef skewers sublime. The orange salad was also great, and my wife and I fought over the last bite. Sadly the restaurant closes at the end of September, although they intend to continue catering and sell spice mixtures through the Internet.

Two years ago we ate here and on our recent return to Missoula, this was our first stop for dinner on the day we arrived. We ate here twice in the week we were visiting Missoula, it is that good! Sadly, they'll be closing, so if you haven't had a chance to enjoy the food here, get there before October... More

The food at the Silk Road is frequently different from what one's familiar with, but always worth trying. Have never been disappointed by my choices here. There are also good choices for vegetarians. Service is prompt, and the atmosphere is cozy.

In Missoula for business I wondered what the restaurants would be like so I was quite surprised to find, by accident, The Silk Road. It was just 5PM and looked actually closed but when I went in I found out they had just opened for the evening. Seated at a table by the large front window it felt like I... More

This was among restaurants recommended by locals I met and I was glad to get here. This family-run establishment knows how to use spices in a way the delights the palate. They even sell some of their spice mixes online. If you want to enjoy the offerings of The Silk Road as I did with a friend I met while... More

Tapas style menu and we tried 5 various dishes from points along the Silk Road (although I didn't think the Americas were on the Silk Road). The food was fabulous, with the blends of spices an explosion of flavour in the mouth. It was well rounded by a 'flight of wines' followed by wonderful desserts. For what we had, the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a memorable meal at this eclectic tapas restaurant. The waiter recommended the Asian dishes in particular, and I loved those dishes especially. The lamb dish was exceptional. And dessert - a chocolate calzone - delicious.

I've visited this restaurant many times. The Tapas menu is unique and delicious. The knowledgeable staff is fantastic! That Dave L is the Bees Knees! The girls just can't get enough of him! Honestly? I could study that guys moves for 20 years but still not understand. To the owners and the staff, thanks for the unique eatery.
