Loved the setting and the food; extensive and inventive menu with something to please everyone. Chefs recommendations scattered throughout. Aubergine and tomato dips with rice crackers was delicious. Very good lunch spot as part of trip to Ock Pop Tok centre.More

This was another recommendation based on prior trip advisor reviews and unfortunately not worth the effort. It’s an expensive lunch without anything to recommend. Too much sugar on most things and not enough flavour.More

Description
Enjoy delicious 'East meets West' cuisine at the Silk Road Cafe. A beautiful and relaxing location in the grounds of a stunning tropical garden with sweeping views of the Mekong, just a short distance from the centre of town - 5 mn ride with our free tuk tuk available all day on demand. Watch our traditional weavers at work at the Living Crafts Centre next door. Serving breakfast and lunch as well as brunch or afternoon tea, it's the perfect place to escape and gaze across the river.
