Best chinese in the area at a great price. Always busy so you usually end up next to another party but creates a good atmosphere

Seriously the best Chinese you'll ever have. Mix of middle eastern and Asian will blow your mind. Make sure you book!

I used to live in the borough of Camberwell and Silk Road was my favorite spot for comfort food. There's always a line around the corner during dinner, so plan ahead and call for a reservation. Favorite dishes include pork with black fungus, stewed eggplant,...More

Wow an experience indeed - the lace was manically busy and I imagine much more like eating in china than most places you find in the U.K. - no msg !! Freshly cooked food with clean flavours and authentic! We loved most of the dishes...More

The service could be better and it's annoying that you always have to book but this place is amazing. The pork with black fungus is a must and we love the dumplings too. Can't believe how cheap it is!
