Silk Road Lounge & Restaurant
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.

Love, love, love, this restaurant! Our server was so sweet. The food was unique and flavourful. Definitely coming back with friends!
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.
Great Dinner. Favourite was the bunty fritters and the lamb. Great cocktails to
Loved our meal and the wine we were recommended to pair with the food, server was quick and helpful
Food was a bit too spicy for my liking, but still good nonetheless. The cocktails were to die for, and the service was quick with very kind people.
A very lovely place for a relaxing Sunday dinner. Service was outstanding, and the food was amazing. We tried the wine recommended to us by the server to pair with our meal and it was delightful.
Good people, great food. We don't drink but their cocktails look exciting.
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.
All staff lovely and very accommodating. Sea bass fantastic! Silk Road salad really nice too.
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.
Amazing experience. Service staff were so kind and friendly, food was delightful and drinks were super delicious. I can't wait to bring my friends here next time! Thank you guys.
Great place to catch up with friends over great food and delicious cocktails
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.
Not really keen on middle eastern food, but this was so unique, really blew my socks off.
Food was amazing. A bit too loud for regular dinner conversation. But overall a great evening.
Thank you so much for joining us! We hope to see you again soon.
Amazing experience! Booked here on a whim and super pleasantly surprised! The cocktails were so yummy and fun. The service was excellent, my server Amy was super attentive and kind. The food blew us away, just a little disappointed on the lack of vegan options for my friends. Will definitely be back though! Highly recommend.
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.
Thank you for your kind words! Apologies for the lack of warning from our server, but we will assure it never happens again, thank you for bringing it up. Something to keep in mind for your next booking, we have live entertainment on Saturdays as well, dinner and show. Hope to see you soon!
Excellent, unique food with great flavours. Staff is super friendly and helpful and attentive. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much, Charlene! We hope to see you again soon.
Great service, even better food. The lamb chops were juicy and tender. Shmander (beets) salad was surprisingly delicious. We had mocktails which were also refreshing. Will be back for the entertainment soon.
We look forward to seeing you again, Scarlette! Saturdays are our entertainment nights, please do join us for dinner and a show!
The lamb, arugula salad and bread were excellent. They were able to accommodate my dietary restrictions without sacrificing on taste or quality. Wine was a bit pricey but very good. I will definitely return.
Thank you so much Rosy! We look forward to your next visit.
This was a so so experience could have been better. The wine was overpriced and the lamb overcooked.
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.
Thank you so much for the feedback, Warren. As a local neighborhood spot, we do try to cater the mood and ambiance of our space to the guests at the time. If you follow us on social media you will be able to see updates about our live entertainment and, more specifically, the vibe of the night so you can make the best choice for when to join us again. We look forward to seeing you soon!
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.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Sarah! We can't wait to see you again.
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.
Thank you so much, Kate! We're looking forward to your next visit!
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.
Thank you for your kind words! Hope to see you again soon for more wine pairings!
Went for the Halloween dinner experience, loved the food and ordered martinis and the mango cocktail plus additional ribs and lamb chops. Loved the food and ambience! The girl with the snake dance was sooo amazing !
We're so glad you enjoyed our Halloween event! Thank you for your kind words. If you enjoyed Halloween, we have started implementing live entertainment on Saturday nights as well! We hope to see you again soon.
Great food, ambience and music, but music too loud for 7-8 pm (couldn’t hear waitress or ourselves talk ), and belly dancers (with snake) were unique, but strange while eating. Not sure this place will last - not busy
Thank you for your feedback, we're grateful you joined us for our Halloween entertainment night. We'll take this all into account and hopefully, your next visit with us is more enjoyable for you! Feel free to call us ahead of your next booking as well so we can add some more personal touches!
It’s been an amazing experience. This was my first time that I tried the Middle Eastern food and I love it! The service was also so good, they were caring and give the details about food. I’ll come back with my friends another time!
Thank you so much, Selen! Can't wait to see you and your friends next visit!
We tried the Kabuli chicken as today’s special. It’s a must try! The service, Eva was great! Perfect experience.
Thank you kindly, Zeynep! We hope to see you again soon!
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.
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.
Fantastic food and service. We loved the walnut and eggplant dip and silk road salad, bread was so fresh and delicious (wish it was more) Our server/Host was so fantastic. 10/10 we'll do it again!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We hope to see you again soon!
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 🙏🏽✨
Thank you so much for your kind words! We hope to see you again soon!
Solid food, great drinks, nice people, excellent patio
Thank you for your review! We hope to see you again soon.
Their house-made bread and dip trio was so good! The menu was simple but unique and delicious. The staff was attentive and very friendly. Will definitely go back!
Our trio platter is classic! Thank you so much for your kind review, we hope to see you again soon!
11/10 would recommend! We tried their lamb rack special and were super impressed. The food, drinks, and service were all impeccable! Definitely coming back soon.
Thank you so much, Charlotte! We loved having you and hope to see you again soon!
Amazing food, super fun drinks, kind and attentive service! Highly recommend trying these guys out!
We loved having you dine with us, Chelsea! Thank you for your review! Can't wait to see you again.
We tried this place on a whim, and it did not disappoint. First off service was amazing, we were late booking a reservation and wanted to get into the patio and they made it work and were super accommodating. 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. Highly recommend checking this place out.
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.
Had a wonderful time here! Hidden gem in the city! Food was excellent (lots of flavour). Drinks were amazing (had Shaytan, anar chai, and a refreshing lime one?). Loved the music selection in the patio area. Service was wonderful. Very friendly!
Definitely worth visiting:)
