Apparently my review has to be at least 100 characters ... Coconut beef curry and tikka masala was absolutely delicious!

A very nice restaurant who serves delicious indian food with a touch of Zanzibar. The service was excellent and we felt very well taken care of! The menu is varied and there are many courses to choose among. The restaurant is clean and spatious. The food is excellent and we enjoyed two very good meals! (The only minus were the toilets - they were not very well-kept!)

I love this restaurant, lovely views and a relief to find some vegan dishes. I just ate the Tarka Dal and asked for no butter. Chapatis were wonderful and also the rice. Extensive menu. Fresh food. I highly recommend

Wonderful food, lovely staff whose uniforms blend in beautifully in the restaurant's atmosphere. Affordable prices. The only drawback is the music, which is too loud occasionally.

We´ve been to Silk Route many times over a course of 10 years, the last time this June after a 6-year absence. the food is still top notch (near-perfect Tandoori!), the service friendly and attentive
and Patronne Yasmin as charming as ever!
It used to be better-looking: the decoration (and the staff´s outfits) have been "modernised" to their detriment.
But if you make it up the newly red&green-painted stairway in 90-degree heat you´ll be lavishly rewarded.
