Fresh, fresh ingredients cooked with subtlety. A real find of a restaurant. They will even help you to carry a pushchair up two flights of steep stairs.

This family run restaurant sits on top of a two story building with an open air view of Stone Town and the Harbor. The food was some of the best Indian Curry I've ever eaten--and that includes London, the supposed Mecca of such. The owner took time to visit our table and explain how she obtains fresh food or doesn't serve it and she is at the restaurant for every meal served. The lunch special is a multi-course meal for less than the price of an entree--a real buy.

My wife and I had lovely lunch at the Silk Route Restaurant on 2nd July, 2014. The quality of food
and service was praiseworthy. We were very impressed with the snacks, spicy and delicious Dal Makhni and hotly served variety of Naans. Home made Kulfi was simply superb.
The view from the second floor of the very well maintained restaurant was very scenic and eyecatching.
The restaurant serves mouthwatering snacks and food and the pricing of the food is just righ and good value for money.
The Management and staff deserve special thanks and appreciations for care and serving the customers with smiles . We look forward to visit this restaurant during our next visit to Zanzibar.

We loved the Indian food here! I honestly thought the food was better here than when we traveled through India! The mixed drinks were unique and there was a great view from the second floor looking out over Stonetown and the Indian Ocean.
