The best Middle Eastern restaurant in the East Bay (that we've tried - and we've tried a lot of them.) Authentic Middle Eastern food in a cozy, understated and relaxed setting. Outdoor and indoor dining available. Attentive and quick service. Server offered explanation of menu items when asked and did so with enthusiasm. On street parking was a challenge, but well worth the walk of a few blocks to have this amazing cuisine. Don't expect a fussy, fancy experience. Pleasant and cozy setting. Definitely order the hummus - it is well above par. Chicken Kebab on a Greek Salad was delicious. The spices on the chicken were really good!

Food and service poor. Lamb shank over cooked and old sauce very salty. Combination platter unappealing eggplant green. I cannot recommend this restaurant it is not middle eastern food.

Just had a brilliant meal here tonight. Extremely efficient staff and delicious main - can recommend the lamb shank. Lots of special touches including complimentary flats bread with dip and complimentary taster deserts -all made for a great evening. Nice setting on Main Street with outside heaters to help with the evening chill. Would definitely return.

We had a small birthday celebration at the Silk Road. The staff was very accommodating and the food was excellent. The chicken kabobs were very tasty, and if you are a salad eater their greek salad is excellent and healthy. This is a small venue and the food is prepared fresh once the order is placed. They do have a full bar, and I found their prices to be reasonable.

I didn't even know this place existed behind the trellis and plants, and maybe they could use a bigger sign, but then I might not have gotten a table...so stay a hidden gem! The food was delicious and the staff very helpful with my dietary restrictions. We have a family of very mixed food preferences. Silk Road fed all of us; the vegans, the gluten free, and the omnivores! Will definitely return.
