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.

    I booked a table for 8 and they sat us at the bar they ran out of food and after waiting for over an hour they asked people to share meals some people never got their meal because they forgot all food came almost 2 hours late food was poor quality and they asked people to change their orders over an hour after the order was placed THIS has been THE WORST experience we ever had at a restaurant. It was also a birthday dinner that totally got ruined. Our reservations were for 8pm to go dancing at 10pm. We walked out of the place close to midnight with some people that never ate because the meals never came.

    Took my mom here for Mother’s Day and we had such a nice time. We had some fun cocktails and got the chefs tasting menu. We had the salmon and lamb chops for our mains and it was sooo delicious! Thanks for helping us celebrate a special day.

    It was an okay experience as the customer service wasn’t bad but it was dead silent not even a little music , ordered two appetizers and two drinks and our total was $100 bucks definitely NOT worth it … plus they didn’t have hummus ready it was 6pm & we were offered a yogurt dip but paid the same price just wasn’t worth the time or money… wouldn’t suggest this place at all overall food was basic nothing crazy at all.

    I came for my wife's 40th birthday; we had a reservation accordingly. The decor is okay, but they have a lovely patio in the back. The food was OK, nothing special, and the prices were average. We waited a bit longer before getting our food, and the flavour was a bit below expectations. I will not go back

    Had a very lovely time with my friend here earlier tonight. The patio was a private hideaway from the busy noise of the street. We had the trio dip to start and lamp chops and steak for our mains. Everything came out in a timely manner and tasted great! Our server was very attentive to all of our dietary needs. Highly recommend!

    We booked in for my husbands 50th bday, and the power went out on the block while we were just getting started with orders. The staff went above and beyond to make our experience special even though we didn’t get to dinner because the power stayed off for hours, but we still had the best time! They lit tons of candles, gave us free shots, sang and celebrated the birthday with sparklers and dancing - so much fun!! Thank you so much to the great staff there, you made it an amazing memory!

    I am glad I tried Silk at a friends recommendation. One of the best steaks and fish I have eaten in Toronto. Amazing presentation by Chef and he personally comes and checks up on all patrons. Every cocktail is unique and very well made and my favourite was "Shaytan". I would definitely recommend this hidden gem to everyone.

    Great queen street gem, we live right around the corner and have been passing by for atleast a year. The food is absolutely delicious but since the venue is small it gets filled up quickly. We had to wait at the bar but 20 minutes later we were seated to a table. The service made up for the wait and did I mention the food was delicious? Chicken kebab baos, pilafs and lamb chops are the way to go and dont forget to ask them about wine pairing. We had 2 very nice wines which are not available at your local lcbo.

    There were maybe 5 parties total.. yet service was a disaster. We were sitting at the bar but had another random server take our order for us. We could hear the kitchen yelling at the serving staff from where we were seated. The music seemed to be playing from a streaming app, that would be intermittently disrupted with ads or jump from deep house to country. The bill was ridiculous given we only had 2 appetizers & 4 drinks. The food was sub par. The main dish we attempted to order was sold out at 8pm on a Saturday. The only good thing was the bar tender who repeatedly apologized for the poor experience & gave us free shots. He also stated he was only there helping out his friend who was one of the chefs. The restaurant was messy & poorly ran. Do not recommend.

    Group of 8 of us went for dinner. We were 1 of two tables there. Food was delicious, but the service was awful. I think our server was new, but she didn’t know anything about the menu. We ordered a bucket of beer and then they lied to us about that beer being out after our first bucket so we had to go for the other bucket of smaller beers. I’m sure they only had 6 beers of the original one we ordered in the entire bar. Food came out at different times and took forever. Kind of shocked how this place is reviewed so highly. Maybe I just picked a bad time to go.

    I recently visited Silk Road Lounge for the second time and while the food was just as delicious as my first visit, the service left something to be desired. My group ordered the chicken Bukhari pilaf which was cooked nicely and the trio platter of dips which was accompanied by fresh bread that was baked in-house and amazing. However, our server forgot about our appetizers not once but twice, even after we reminded her. Another server apologized on her behalf and compensated us for the mistake, but the forgetful server argued with one of my friends, which was in poor taste. With proper training, I believe the service can be improved and this restaurant can become a solid 5. Overall, I would give Silk Road Lounge a rating of 3.5/5 but will round to 4 because there are no half ratings available.

    Great spot for a date - intimate with beautiful ambiance. Started with some delicious cocktails, the Shalimar Garden was refreshing and light while the Shaytan had the perfect sweetness with a sesame seed rim. The Muhammara was the star of the trio platter, bread was fresh, well seasoned, crisp on the edges and soft in the middle. Absolutely recommend the chicken kebab baos, packed with a balance of bold flavors and textures. The Barg Steak was spot-on medium with a good sear and seasoned to perfection. Very happy we got the Shank Osmani, it’s a must! Looking forward to returning for the new updated menu in March 2023.

    I’m a big foodie and have been to a lot of restaurants in the GTA, but nothing compares to this Toronto hidden gem! The food and service is wonderful, and it quickly turned into my go-to spot in the city for delicious food and drinks with my friends. The owner Hassan takes great care of us during all our visits, and Chef Ivan is a true artists with not only the presentation, but also the incredible flavours and spices in each dish. I highly recommend Silk Road, and I especially recommend trying the Mongolian ribs, lamb chops, and Silk Road martini while you’re there! 10/10 experience every visit.

    Arrived at 7pm, restaurant was fairly empty, asked for lamb (this is a Persian restaurant after all): "We've just run out". For dessert, there was a choice of ice cream or baked pear: "We've run out of pear". I ended up having chicken shish kebob and pita for $50. I won't be returning

    Amazing food. This is one of those places to watch out for. Our server was fantastic. The only thing I would suggest is to improve the service kinks but overall great venue if you want to experience fresh, great ingredients served up in a cozy neighborhood vibe. Absolute musts were shrimp, shank and the barg steak. Ribs were good too but a bit pricey.

    Food was delicious (we didn’t eat meat, only vegetarian, fish and seafood) and the cocktails were great. Some dishes were surprisingly small, especially when you consider the price. We were disappointed for the absence of some things which is, in our opinion, unprofessional and disrespectful to the clients (the eggplant dip for examples and some cocktails). The atmosphere was perfect - The design, the music and the volume. Service was nice but sometimes we felt dishes taken off our table before we really finished with them. Great place for mature adults to hang.
