We both had the lemongrass crab bisque and it was terrific and then we shared the duck breast and it was cooked perfectly with an awesome sauce. The old fashion cocktails were excellent. The waitperson timed everything just right and was very personable and friendly.

Absolutely delightful! Had the drum with coconut sauce which was enormous, perfectly cooked, and of a piece with this treat of an evening. We were warmly welcomed and took a high top that had clear privacy screens which were tastefully blended with the existing decor and let us tete a tete even though the atmosphere was thrumming with the other guests joyful conversations. We were taken care of quickly but never rushed so we made our show at the Mahalia Jackson with no stress and lightly socially lubricated with the Hendrick’s gin and Sangria generously poured and kept fresh throughout the evening. Love these guys and this place and thank you for your part in a magical night.

This is our second time dining at Silk Road. Both times the food and service were excellent. This neighborhood Resturant is a great value and serves authentic Indian dishes as well as Traditional New Orleans Poor Boys.
We highly recommend this restaurant!

We went for the Coolinary special. Most places, the coolinary is pretty limited, but the options at Silk Road all looked good. We had the samosas, wings, short ribs, and red curry chicken, plus the cheesecake and bread pudding for dessert. We also opted for the wine paring. The dessert wine was really sweet. All of the food was very tasty and we’ll definitely be back.

Always enjoy going here. Took some out of town guests and they very much enjoyed the experience. Service was good. A little slower than normal but like all of us they were short staffed. Just glad they are able to be open and do it very safely.

We went for the coolinary menu with wine pairings. The food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is eccentric and the staff worked together and was very kind. The only downside was the noise level.

We went to Silk Road for the first time for the Coolinary. I don't know why we haven't been here before. It used to be a grocery store when I lived in the Bywater many years ago. Now, it is a very cute, funky restaurant that leans Indian/Asian. At first we were sat in the back room, but indicated that we didn't want to sit back there and preferred the main dining room. They accommodated us as quickly as they were able to and they didn't treat us like troublemakers because of it. They get a big plus for that. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. We had the samosas the Korean chicken wings and the crab bisque. All were very good but the crab bisque was killer. We had the salmon, the Thai Red Curry and the Duck Breast and again, they were all great. The salmon and the duck breast were cooked perfectly. On the desserts, the mango cheesecake was not heavy and dense, but light and fluffy...yummm. The service was excellent. It was our first time, but it certainly will not be our last. Loved it!

Average food served in a bar environment. Based on the website I thought it was going to be a much more interesting combination of flavor bc it is advertised as asian/indian/creole fusion. It was unfortunately quite basic and I wasn't wowed in the least. The food was fine but not memorable and it is not a place I would return to.

I went with my sister on a Saturday night at 7 p.m. for dinner for an Indian meal. We both had cocktails, both delicious and well-balanced. We selected a bottle of wine from the cellar/hallway, and it was opened and served at the table. The ambiance was charming, soft-lit, romantic for those looking for a date venue, and dress-casual. We had live piano entertainment! The saag paneer works well as an appetizer for two and comes with a tortilla for scooping. Delish. I had the BBQ chicken breast which was tender and not over-seasoned. My sister had the red curry and it was delicious. The food is truly a blend of Creole and Indian served with as beautiful a presentation as any Brennan's restaurant. The prices were half that of a "fine dining" establishment but larger portions and just as delicious. Well done! I definitely recommend, and I will definitely be back!

We went in for the coolinary menu as our first adventure into Indian food. We enjoyed 90% of what we had and with four in our party we had an opportunity to try several different menu items. The $28 bottle of delicious wine was an added bonus!

We're local and this was the first time eating here (thanks to Coolinary). I'm glad we were exposed to another neighborhood gem. The drinks and food were delicious and live piano music made for a wonderful dining experience. We'll definitely be back to try other parts of the menu!

Food was outstanding... Service was a little slow, but there was only one server at the moment. A little disappointed that one item we wanted to order wasn't available because some required equipment hadn't arrived yet. We'll be back to check.
