If you are Chinese, do not eat here. 不好吃👎🏼
Flavours are watered down for a western palette. We should have known better when we saw no other Asians eating in this restaurant. Heard good things about this place from friends who have come here for years, so I am wondering if the management has changed.

No spice, no msg, and many filler vegetables in all dishes. Tomato egg noodles were tasteless, where is the spring onion? Price was decent. Lamb skewers were very good, probably the only thing we would order here.

I've been enjoying eating at Silk Road for over 10 years and couldn't wait for the re-opening. The new restaurant (next door to the old one) is larger and has a more modern feel. I do miss the old place but I'm sure I will grow to love the new restaurant. I ordered my favourites, Chicken with Green Chili, Homestyle Aubergine, hand pulled noodles with a side of lamb skewers. It was super tasty and I can't wait to go back!

I have been a fan of this restaurant for years and was glad that after a few months it had reopened. The atmosphere is casual and the food is delicious! The home style cabbage, lab skewers and homemade noodles were the highlights. Would highly recommend for family and friends outings and casual dates. The front dinning area gets a bit chilly with the delivery drivers opening the door, but it does not disturb the atmosphere of the restaurant. I would recommend booking ahead of time, especially on weekends.

Went there to try the CABBAGE homestyle (£8.80) as recommended and it did not disappoint. I am a meat eater but I can happily eat this with a bowl of pulled noodles (£2.50). Prices are okay for certain things. I would definitely get the lamb skewers (£1.50 each) they are divine. I wouldn't order the special noodles (£10) comes with egg. I enjoyed the plain noodles with Cabbage more than the £10 special lamb noodles. Everything else was too spicy and full of onions ginger and chili. It dulled my taste buds. I would not recommend those with a chili rating of 2. The pork belly slices (£9) there were hardly any pork. The cucumber salad (£6) was a bit bland, I would have preferred if it had a bit of salt and vinegar. The fried beef dumplings (£6.50) had a funny ginger taste om the inside. I did not enjoy it, they did give a lot for the price though, but the inside tasted like frozen cheap meat. Too bad they didn't have soya milk when I went. It was recommended by a friend.

I would go again, but avoid all the chili dishes. I would try the aubergine homestyle next time. Service is quick, food comes out quickly.
