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.

    Absolutely fantastic food, drinks and service. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. I’m a repeat customer and will continue to be, and love bringing people who’ve never been here with me as well! Maria, Kamil and all the staff are incredibly hardworking and kind, you must dine here - it’s a true gem of a place in our city.

    A beautiful restaurant! The food was amazing, and even better was the staff. Our server was excellent, and we had a chance to meet the owner, and he was great too. This is a relatively new restaurant (only been open a year and a half), and is a place you should check out and support. They have a great spot both inside and outside. We will definitely be back!

    Decent decor. Wasn't too busy inside, which was nice. A bit loud, but not too bad. Server was clearly new, but did a good enough job. The food was quite good. I would go back and recommend to a friend.

    I love the food at this restaurant. This time I tried two items that stood out to me were the Shrimp and the garden Salad -dessert. The Garden Salad is a nice light post meal dessert. The restaurant does have a lovely back patio which even has coverage; in the event of rain. Highly recommend this place. A gem on Queen Street.

    We went to Silk Road Restaurant for dinner with some friends. I was inspired by the other reviews and pictures available online. From the outside of doesn't seem a very interesting place, but I must say that we were extremely satisfied with food and drinks! Delicious!!!! And big applause for the bartender!! I might only expect some more deserts though ;)

    We went to Silk Road Lounge to celebrate our anniversary and it was indeed a great experience. The food was exceptional and very well prepared. The cocktails were very unique and beautifully presented, tasted awesome as well. will definitely come by to try more food. The Chef/Owner is so friendly with guests. He made sure that we enjoyed the food and experience.

    The Turkish based menu was very good. The service was very good and the staff was very attentive. Things to improve: more options, the bread needs to be more soft and less burnt, and the ambience definitely needs to improve. The patio view is very importance and it felt like it was done up in hurry. Add more plants to cover the cylinder or other drawbacks of the patio and that will add more warmth to it . The inside was bit dingy and needs more improvement.

    Staff were super helpful and friendly. Food was very good. The one piece of advice that I wish had been written on the menu or shared by our server is that with a group the best way to approach the meal is to order a bunch of plates to share. We will definitely go again.

    Pretty good food overall. The waitress was trying hard but the wine was hit and miss as there was no written list and prices. So things got very confusing when some wine was out, and not knowing prices with nothing to refer to. It was also hot with no AC and no room on patio. Excellent poached pear dessert.

    The service was great and accomodated our group of 7 on the patio. We ordered the sharable salads, which were nice, along with the trio dip and bread. Both were enjoyable starters. We each ordered our own main and the majority of us went with the braised lamb. We all agreed it was way too salty and took away from the flavour. I would not recommend that dish and in retrospect, we should have ordered a few mains to share among us so we could have had more of a variety. Overall, we had a nice time.

    The Silk Road is tucked away on Queen between Bar Poet and Oyster Boy—a blue and pink neon sign adorns the wall outside, and while it's not as well known as some of its contemporaries, the quality of its food all but guarantees that this won't be the case for very long. An homage to the spice varietals and melting pot culinary atmosphere of the Silk Road during its years as a major trade route, this wonderful little place serves up dishes like the Muhammara dip (charred red pepper, toasted walnuts, and pomegranate molasses), a grilled Branzino sea bass with dill and lemon next to a lentil salad with pomegranate, and even a spiced pear with ice cream and nutmeg for dessert. Ample dining space, warm lighting, and minimal but relevant decor give the Silk Road a welcoming vibe that pairs nicely with the tasty dishes mentioned above. Familiar cocktails like an Old Fashioned get a Great Canadian makeover with walnut bitters and cinnamon, and maple syrup, and they also offer house originals like the Habib Pasha (J.W. Black, coconut water, coconut yogurt, lemon juice, and Earl Grey tea syrup). Live a little and take a trip there today.

    We were very impressed with the food and the service. Our server was very attentive and came around to check on us quite often. I had the Shank Osmani, which was a very small portion, but one of the more flavourful dishes I have had in a while. 10/10.

    I haven't had such a lovely restaurant experience in Toronto in a long time. From the ambiance to the service and the food, this felt like a unique gem that the Toronto food scene desperately needed. The back patio was intimate but not crowded, and quiet so we could actually hear each other talking. The decor throughout the restaurant really added to the experience, as well, because you could tell so much thought was put into it. The server was SO great–we had the best time chatting with her, and she was so knowledgeable about the menu. The food was outstanding, with flavours we've never tasted before and very thoughtful plating. The dishes are pretty small for their price tags, but it's pretty expected considering this is right on Queen St W. The taste absolutely made up for the portions, though. At the end of the meal, the kitchen manager came to thank us at our table and he could not have been a lovelier man. We'll definitely be back often to share this experience with others.
