Middle Eastern
Central Asian cuisine is incredibly diverse, catering to a nomadic carnivore’s dream or a vegetarian farmer’s humble palate. While the spice blend across the region is derived from a similar heritage, the approach to cooking at Silk Road is one inspired by honesty, and elevated simplicity.
For some, cocktails have been described as the ‘elixir of life’. Infused with exquisite Asian herbs and freshly grounded spices, our contemporary drinks are handcrafted, which promise to deliver a regal experience.
Historically, the Silk Road ran through the heart of the Uzbek territory. Along the caravan trails, and later the sea routes, fruits, vegetables and spices, in addition to sophisticated techniques of cooking the raw produce, were transferred from one civilization to another.

    Amazing food, classy ambience, friendly service. Great prices too! The photos don't do this place justice at all - it's not just a patio with a big indoor bar. It's thoughtfully designed, with booths for larger groups as well as tables/bar spots for smaller. Perfect for both a date night or dinner with friends. Did I mention their food is beyond delicious?? We weren't sure what Central Asian cuisine is like, but they were accurate to describe it as the perfect marriage of East and West. New, amazing flavours we couldn't get enough of. Would go back in a heartbeat!

    Overall, a great night out. This place is a hidden gem. We were a large group, we ordered the house special rack of lambs, some kafta, paneer and chicken kabuli, a few cocktails and their BREAD. oh my lord, the bread was fantastic. The food was amazing, and the cherry on top was the service. It's not very often that you get great food and even better service. Highly recommend this spot.

    First time here and definitely will be returning. Food was phenomenal. Ordered kafta, lamb, chicken, arugula salad and three dip dishes. Chicken was so juicy and full of flavour. Slow cooker lamb, what can I say, just melts in your mouth, combined with the saffron rice and yogurt, just wonderful. Service staff were extremely friendly and conversational.

    First time dining here. Apps were delicious. The braised lamb was amazing. I would definitely recommend and plan to return. Our server was very polite and knowledgeable. She seemed to be the only server working so once it got a bit busy she wasn’t able to be as attentive which resulted in us only getting one cocktail. Regardless, we had a wonder experience at the Silk Road lounge!

    First time eating Central Asian cuisine and what a positive experience it was. Chicken Bao was the star of the show, but I am amazed how they managed to make the Chicken Kababs have their own unique taste from the Pakistani/Indian style that I've become accustomed to. Drinks were exquisite. Worth trying for yourself.

    We reserved a spot for 9 and weren’t told up front that the seats would be at the bar. We asked multiple times if we could be moved to the dining room and they said no because they had others coming in later. No one showed up until we were about to leave. The food and everything was good though.

    Showed up at 7pm, the place was dead, and the wait staff was very persistent in getting an order out of us as quickly as possible. Ordered over 180 dollars of food (super small portions at unreasonably high prices and very little flavour), and then after 55 minutes of a rushed and disappointing dining experience, the staff told us to leave. And what’s worse is that they put water on our table and then proceeded to charge us $8 for it. Never going back and I caution others to stay away. Unless you like bland rushed dining and being kicked out on the street the second your plate is empty.

    Amazing interior design, the food tastes great, super helpful and service oriented staff. The only wrinkle is either this is not a meat centric cuisine, or the economy is creeping into the menu. For example, the server told us the chef's special lamb shank was good enough for three people to share and indeed it got us full, but that's because there was a lot of bread and cous-cous, not meat.
