Critic Rating

Sharmila says Journalist & Author

3.5/5

A cosy, dim lit, simple place with Chinese lanterns, artistic elements and cane furniture accentuating the décor. The menu is really elaborate featuring Oriental, Pan Asian, Continental as well as Indian cuisine. However, it is advisable to go for Pan Asian as that is the restaurant’s USP. Start with the best sellers – 'Golden Fried Prawns', 'Paw Pia Tod', 'Silk Route Cumin Lamb' and 'Lan Zhou Chilli Basa Fish'. 'Oriental Greens' and 'Ma Po Tofu' are popular veg items. 'Chicken or Prawn Gaeng Khiao Wan Gai' is Thai Green or Red curry which is a signature dish here. For a light meal, dim sums are absolutely delightful as they come in various fillings. Here 'Shrimp and Chicken Har Gow' are the stars of the platter. Noodles and rice are offered in different flavours, each one loaded with fresh texture. If you are in a mood to have Biryani, you have the option from 'Lakhnawi', 'Hyderabadi' or 'Kashmiri Style' preparation. Sandwiches, kinds of pasta and pizzas are not disappointing either though nothing special about them. Round off with 'Honey Crisp Noodle' with 'Vanilla' or 'Darsan'. Overall, The Silk Route promises a memorable dining experience in a non-fussy ambience marked with warm service.

Chinese Food with a conversation to remember

A romantic place with dimlit interiors. I would have missed something in this lifetime iron Chinese food had I missed this place! A hidden gem in Vasant Kunj, this place has a massive menu and portion sizes and is great for family or dinners with friends, specially in large groups They have a private dining area too with a circular table and is extremely posh, making you feel on top of the world. With different seating sections and a great exhaustive menu, I bet you'd stop at the soups and starters after ordering a few from each category An ideal place for a date too, specially in the day time Must try Cheese noodles Grilled wontons Veg dimsum platter Coffee ice cream Sticky rice You can't miss this place if you love a Chinese spread!

New outlet i Vasant kunj with delicious chinese food

While searching for a good restaurant in Vasant Kunj in Zomato, I came across the restaurant, Silk Route. The reviews impressed me and I along with few of my friends visited there for dinner. Artistic decoration and comfortable ambiance of the restaurant were flattering. The manager and the other staffs were courteous who welcomed us warmly. For couples, friends, and families, seating arrangements were planned accordingly. Dining lights hanging from above on the round dining table was preparing us for the royal dinner we’re yet to enjoy. Now, coming to the food’s section, we ordered Chilly Garlic Fish Dry and Crispy Fried Prawns. Fish was seasoned properly with garlic and other ingredients making it delectable. Chilli paste applied on it wasn’t too spicy, and hence is digestible. Prawns in Crispy Fried Prawns were crispy and golden in color. Both the dishes were not only a treat to your tongue but also to your eyes because of the garnishing. What we took in the main course also deserve a special mention here. Fish in Black Bean Sauce and Two in One Prawns won our hearts. Ginger, garlic, and starch was combined well in the first dish. Moreover, the fish was tender and was not seasoned overly. I can say it confidently that if you love Prawns, you’re going to fall in love with Two in One Prawns dish. Both the prawns having mild and spicy taste was making it superb to try with Hakka Noodles. In terms of both quantity and quality, Hakka Noodles were also fine. The restaurant has everything- food quality, variety, good staffs, luxury ambiance and what not. I would love to visit there again soon.

Excellent Chinese Food

The Silk Route promises a memorable dining experience of enriching Chinese food sans the indianised touch, authentic yet familiar in flavours. Intrigued? Try it for yourself! When you walk into the restaurant, you don't expect much considering it's made an ubiquitously simple manner, could use balanced lighting and some cheer. However don't let this overtake your judgement because the food will blow your mind, your taste buds quite literally! I started off with an underdog of a dish and it could easily be one of the best vegan versions of an Asian stir fry I have ever eaten. French Beans tossed in Black Bean Sauce, yes it sounds a bore but boy! Every bite was loaded with immense flavour, a crunchy texture and just a brilliant pop of smokiness in the mouth. This was followed by Steamed Chicken Wontons, even more delicate and bombarding with brilliance of technique. Delicate wonton sheets encasing a tender spiced chicken mince, cooked well and so gentle to eat, also extremely light! Shrimp & Chicken HarGao was plump, delicious and delicate. Prawn Gold Coins were deep fried discs of meaty prawn, crisp and juicy! Prawn Stuffed Mushrooms were the real bomb, of brilliant flavours. Juicy prawn meat stuffed inside soft Mushrooms, cooked to the point and laden with an essentially Asian sauce that transmuted into a revelation once it hit my taste buds. Stir fried Chicken with exotic vegetables is sublime, fresh and tasted of comfort food made in the most refreshingly light way and comforting to my health pretensions. The Silk Route is an ultimate food destination for Chinese food lovers who like their food simple, delicious and redolent in Asian flavours without fuss and drama. The menu is vast, familiar and experimental at the same time, with prices that you'd be happy to pay. Visit with family or friends or just visit if you love unpretentious good food. I am certainly going back for more!

About The Silk Route, Vasant Kunj, South Delhi


It was last week when a friend of mine started craving Chinese food while she was visiting me in the city. A thorough search for best Chinese restaurants in the city began and we went through several menus in hope for that one place that would not only give us amazing Asian food but also would be inexpensive. After reading many great reviews we finally decided to check out ‘The Silk Route’, a gorgeous eatery where dining is like transporting oneself to the ancient Chinese province. It’s a great place to explore with a fellow foodie or even take your family to for a scrumptious lavish feast of Asia. The restaurant is situated on the ground floor of Building 2 in Local Shopping Centre, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. Next time your loved ones crave for Chinese food, take them here.

The menu of Silk Route surprises you for two reasons. First, it’s wonderfully varied, especially in case of seafood, second, they have extended the menu enough to also include some desi Indian fare as well. But as you are here for Asian food, stick to Chinese and Thai, after all this is what they promise best. They don’t serve alcohol, pick manchow soup instead. Begin your evening at The Silk Route with an assortment of appetizers. Must haves are, special ginger honey fish, stir fried beans with black bean, golden fried prawns, crispy water chestnuts chilli garlic, drums of heaven and baby lobster ginger garlic dry. Main course gets even more exciting with, sweet chilli crab, stuffed beancurd with chicken, stir fried asparagus in mushroom sauce, Silk Route cumin lamb and fish filled in chilli oyster sauce.

Variety is fantastic and doesn’t disappoint. Mop up the gravies with pan fried noodles or burnt garlic rice. Round off your stint at The Silk Route via some desserts. Enjoy the crunch of honey crispy noodle with vanilla, some traditional darsan, or the warm-cold contrast of fried ice cream. Live music is soothing and pleasant. The restaurant gets very busy through the weekend, book ahead. There is so much to admire when you dine at The Silk Route. Interiors are beautiful and striking. Named after the famous economy route between India-China, this restaurant has a distinct oriental feel. Bamboo ceiling, floral chairs, Chinese paintings and Buddha art installation, enchants you instantly. The restaurant is only marginally pricey.
