Silk Road & chef ganesh - Reviews

"My tandoori-loving heart skipped a beat when the Schiro's Bar & Cafe space began a slow-but-steady conversion into Silk Road, a New Orleans-influenced Indian restaurant.

  Those who know the joy of a thick, ghee-glistened yellow curry will flock to Silk Road, which — in its fledgling state — already is serving the kind of high-quality, richly nuanced Indian food that is rare in New Orleans." - Review by Sarah Baird from Gambit's Restaurant Edition.

"A great little neighborhood place on an awesome block in the Marigny! An eclectic mix of local food and Indian dishes and a damn good Bloody Mary. A super chill atmosphere and a great place to pick up some wine (they have a huge wine selection!) or just relax at the bar. Definitely worth checking out!" - Grace C, Google Review

“The most amazing sesame crusted salmon with wasabi burre blanc” - Terri O, Trip Advisor

 

 

"Amazing flavors and beautiful atmosphere! I am super picky with my Indian food and I think Silk Road had such an interesting fusion take on it. I truly enjoyed the entire meal, and the service was personable and friendly without being overbearing. 

I love the Marigny and having this pretty little restaurant at such a great location is ideal. Perfect for date nights or big group dinners. Will be back soon!" - Ivana D, Yelp Review
