SIlk Road is a true gem of Vermillion! Their kimchi menu is amazing and the fact that that their kimchi is made in-house astounds. Tasty apps and entrees all around! The only place I have been to (I am originally from much more multicultural places)...that serves kimchi pancakes...they are amazeballs!More

Good, not great. But for what it is, Asian in Vermillion, it’s pretty good. I had Kimchi pancakes and korean stew. Bother were pretty good

We did not have super high expectations for dining in a small town but we absolutely loved our dinner here. The service was great, and the food was fresh and flavorful with several vegetarian/vegan options available. Definitely check it out!

Revamped since my wife last visited some years ago. Not the most inspiring looking frontage to a Brit, but the service was excellent and the food was far more than satisfactory. Buffet option is available, but we chose the à la carte - the dim...sum were delicate and delicious, the Vietnamese lemongrass chicken dish was wonderful, but extremely spicy. Really good value, tasty food and thoroughly recommended.More

I have to admit I was pleased to see some ethnic food on Main Street and they did not disappoint. Eager and friendly waitstaff and a clean place. Buffet was closed for evening so I had Korean BBQ and spring roll. Very nice on both...counts. Certainly recommend for travelers interested in a unique offering!More

Always a great place for a big variety in Asian cuisine. Can't go wrong with anything! Highly recommend Korean BBQ, Be-bim Bop, Pot Stickers, and Chicken Satay. Service can be a little slow, but enjoy their outstanding cucumber saki while you wait!

Whenever my husband and I want to eat Korean food, we always come to Silk Road Cafe. Authentic and delicious food and nice owner and staffs. Our favorites are “Jampong” (Seafood noodle with soup), Korean spicy stew, Bulgoki, Stir Fry Kimchi and Kimchi Fried Rice....It is about 30 minutes drive from our place but it’s worth it!More

What I love most about Silk Red is the variety of quality dishes from different Asian cultures. You can get Pork Bulgogi and a plethora of Thai Curries from the same place in small town South Dakota? You bet.
