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.

    The Silk Road is tucked away on Queen between Bar Poet and Oyster Boy—a blue and pink neon sign adorns the wall outside, and while it's not as well known as some of its contemporaries, the quality of its food all but guarantees that this won't be the case for very long. An homage to the spice varietals and melting pot culinary atmosphere of the Silk Road during its years as a major trade route, this wonderful little place serves up dishes like the Muhammara dip (charred red pepper, toasted walnuts, and pomegranate molasses), a grilled Branzino sea bass with dill and lemon next to a lentil salad with pomegranate, and even a spiced pear with ice cream and nutmeg for dessert. Ample dining space, warm lighting, and minimal but relevant decor give the Silk Road a welcoming vibe that pairs nicely with the tasty dishes mentioned above. Familiar cocktails like an Old Fashioned get a Great Canadian makeover with walnut bitters and cinnamon, and maple syrup, and they also offer house originals like the Habib Pasha (J.W. Black, coconut water, coconut yogurt, lemon juice, and Earl Grey tea syrup). Live a little and take a trip there today.

    We were very impressed with the food and the service. Our server was very attentive and came around to check on us quite often. I had the Shank Osmani, which was a very small portion, but one of the more flavourful dishes I have had in a while. 10/10.

    I haven't had such a lovely restaurant experience in Toronto in a long time. From the ambiance to the service and the food, this felt like a unique gem that the Toronto food scene desperately needed. The back patio was intimate but not crowded, and quiet so we could actually hear each other talking. The decor throughout the restaurant really added to the experience, as well, because you could tell so much thought was put into it. The server was SO great–we had the best time chatting with her, and she was so knowledgeable about the menu. The food was outstanding, with flavours we've never tasted before and very thoughtful plating. The dishes are pretty small for their price tags, but it's pretty expected considering this is right on Queen St W. The taste absolutely made up for the portions, though. At the end of the meal, the kitchen manager came to thank us at our table and he could not have been a lovelier man. We'll definitely be back often to share this experience with others.

    My partner and I visited Silk Road and we were amazed at not only the quality of the food, but also the service. We had the beef ribs, chicken baos and trio platter for starter. The steak was so juicy and was nicely done according to our preference, still drooling. This is one of, if not the best meal we've eaten. So much flavours cannot describe. You must give this place a try if you have not visited yet. I cannot recommend this place enough to my colleagues at work. Such a warm and welcoming environment. Thank you silk Road team.

    Terrific food which blew my mind!!!! The star dish; SHANK OSMANI. The whole experience from start to finish was great. Waitress was friendly and kind and accommodated our requests. The food cannot get better and the prices are fair for the portion size. One of my favorite spot from now on ,added to the list for great food and good place to chill with friends.

    Good food at reasonable prices. Our server was polite but had to get her attention a few times for service. This would not be a place one would go for a romantic dinner or lunch. The ambiance is about the poorest I've experienced. Good food at reasonable prices though.

    Had some amazing food and drinks after a while. Came to Toronto to visit a friend and ended up at Silk Road in the evening. The lamp chops were FIRE, so good, juicy and tasty. We were seated in their back patio, good vibe and I must say that the staffs take good care of their customers.

    Im so glad to have come across Silk Road. I loved the Barg steak and the kabuli chicken which were seasoned perfectly and the sides were so much that we could not finish and had to ask for take-out boxes. Thank you for the great service as well.
