    Fantastic place with an unbelievably talented chef and kitchen. Fantastic cocktails. Fantastic wine to go with meals. All in all we’ve been getting to restaurants that Ganesh has been involved with for the past 30+ yrs. It would be difficult to come up with a place we could rate any higher.

    I went with an older female friend for their Coolinary menu. I added the wine pairing for $20. They had waters on the table ready for us before we sat down. The 2 female wait staff was attentive and friendly. It was our first time there and we will be back! The food was delicious and portions great for all appetites.

    The place feels and looks great. Neat menu with an interesting mix of foods. The samosas and the chicken tikka marsala were wonderful. The braised short rib could have been the same, but was on the dry side. The low point was service. Brusque and not a real welcome feeling. We got the bill handed to us before we had decided on dessert. And keeping the silverware in between appetizers and main course is just awkward on a table with no table cloth or bread dishes.

    Silk Road is a must-dine! The spot is a hidden neighborhood gem with delicious high-quality food and incredible live performances. It’s a small space so reservations are a must unless the bar is available.

    Amazing food and atmosphere. Such a beautiful setting! We went for valentines day and it seemed like they were not prepared for how many people had reservations for the evening. Our server kept coming to our table and asking us what he was missing and then running away to get it. Would recommend highly on not such a busy night.
