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.

Food and drinks were great. Service was impeccable. The only downside was it was a bit quiet at the time we arrived, with only one other table there so the ambience wasn't quite clicking.

Was overall good experience. Only downside was the patio was incredibly cold and all the guests were wearing jackets while dining. Heat lamp didnt have fuel to be on so it was chilly. Food was good, didnt feel like it was the best value but im glad i have the chance to experience this place at least once.

First of all - the service here is great. Right from the hostess to the bartender everyone was great and a special call out to the bartender who was serving us while mixing some amazing drinks. The cocktails here are great but that’s where the good really stops. The food was well below average. The Chef Special was not very special and across 3 appetizers and 3 main dishes we tried the only thing good was the bread. The lamb rack was chewy and bland, the keema pilaf was just soggy rice and the chicken skewers were not done through. We really wanted to like this restaurant because of the bartender but the food was a real let down.

The food and drinks were amazing. Unfortunately that experience was lessened due to the terrible service. We expect food to take time to get to the table, which is fine when you get your drinks right away. The drinks took forever to arrive at the table and they were brought 1 at a time, sometimes with large time gaps between the arrive of each persons drink. So the first person to get there drink was sometimes finished before the last person received their drink. The drinks were so delayed, that when we ordered our last round of drinks (for a party of 3 btw) the third and final drink arrived when dessert was over and the first 2 people yo receive their drinks had finished and we were all ready to leave for the evening. Making it so that everyone had to wait around for the last drink to be finished before we could leave. If they drinks had come sooner and all at once I’m sure we would have purchased more of them as well as more food.

It’s really unfortunate because we all really loved the taste of everything and the staff was very friendly.

We were there in the summer and the food was great. Last night the drinks and salad were amazing but the mains were disappointing. The steak was tough and grisly and the kafteh was overly spiced and undercooked and mushy. The kafteh last time had a lovely seared exterior. Had this been our first experience we would not return.

Arrived about 6 in the evening, the place was quiet. Went with the servers choice and glad that we did. The food was really good. Since its a new restaurant, some kinks need to be worked out, for example our shrimp was delicious but the plate was a sizzler and was very hot and a warning would have been nice. Our drinks were fantastic and were presented very well.Overall great experience and service. Will definitely be coming back.

This is a tough one to rate. There are some standouts on the menu in particular the Silk road salad and the short ribs. There are misses as well. The wines are quite good and interesting. The servers and it particularly owner is very accommodating. The problem is they're trying to portray a very hip ibe and the place is better as an eclectic neighborhood spot. Stop with the hip hop and put on some cool jazz and soft rock.

What a gem of a spot on queen w! This restaurant is truly the best fusion spot for flavors across the Silk Road - they use the best ingredients and spices in their dishes as well as cocktails. Their dishes have so much innovation and bring about the best of flavors. 10/10 for ambience, service, food and cocktails. We tried the chefs special which was a chicken dish on pilaf, along with lamp chops, fritters and barg steak - all excellent!!! We can’t wait to come back again for this delicious selection and try out the rest of their menu.

What an amazing night spent at the Silk Road. We were warmly welcomed by Komila, the hostess. We have the most beautiful and crafted Silk Road martinis and without forgetting the kitchen accommodated out late requests for the delicious trio dips and pipping hot house bread and the bunty fritters. Service as well as ambiance was great. They had a special entertainment program which was very well organized and the belly dancers were mesmerizing. Will definitely come back.

We made a last minute reservation tonight hoping to enjoy a bit of the Halloween live performance. Little did we know what we were in for.
We got the lamb chop special which was just juicy and so filling. The fresh baked bread might just be the best in the city. Giovanni their General manager recommended us a lovely bottle of Italian wine which went perfectly with the food. And if that wasn’t enough we were mesmerized by a unique performance of the belly dancers. Just an amazing experience overall. Will definitely be visiting again soln.

Pros:
Silk Road has the cutest patio.
Our waitress was very friendly.
The mezzeh trio (hummus, eggplant, pomegranate & walnut) was absolutely delicious paired with housemade bread.

Cons:
Table for 2 was very small and could barely fit all the food
Their signature dish, the shank osmani, was way too salty and not a pleasant experience.

Overall I'd recommend this restaurant just for the experience, wouldn't come here solely for food.

Came to Silk Road with a few girlfriends for dinner. Made sure to secure spots on their beautiful patio 😍 the vibe was amazing with warm woods, greenery for an oasis vibe and cute lights. We kept it light and ordered apps as mezze style dining. Grabbed the trio dip (each one SO incredibly flavourful), Maghrebi salad (so fresh), Tereyagli Shrimp (🤤) and holy crab samsa (sooo good and perfect addition for texture). Their signature mocktail was beautiful and so refreshing. Would highly recommend and definitely will come back 🙏🏽✨

It was recommended to me to try their silk road signature martini and I'm so glad we listened. The food was outstanding too! Everything we tried blew us away.

Wasn't sure if we'd like this but we were both pleasantly surprised with the outstanding quality of food and service. The cocktails all looked super interesting as well, though we weren't drinking so our server recommended their speciality mocktail instead (10/10). Every dish was great but the barg steak was out of the park. If you're on the fence about giving this place a go, just do it, they don't disappoint.
