"Silk Road is a lovely bistro tucked away in the Marigny where Creole New Orleans cuisine meets India. Situated inside the Balcony Guest House, the restaurant also doubles as a neighborhood wine shop with free weekly wine tastings. Offerings range from tasty traditional samosas and lemongrass crab bisque to New Orleans favorites, including Monday red beans." Chanell G. Google Review

"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

" So nice to go and have dinner and a drink of wine.
I go there weekly. I went there for just wine and comfort. A friend came in town so we decided to eat lunch and it was delicious. I really enjoy The food. Healthy and tasty 😋" Google Review by April Taylor

"Food was amazing, and we had an impromptu Irish band playing while eating. Service staff friendly and knowledgeable, and Zach was a pleasure to deal with."  Google Review by Steve Barton

"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 

"Best value for money. ..Great service. ..comfortable and luxurious room available... come in and get greeted by our friendly service and eat some good food with our clean Restaurant and great atmosphere. We will be looking forward to seeing u , your friends and your family !!!
I loved the atmosphere and the food was incredible. The staff was friendly and we even got to take a pic with the chef.

I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND" - Jafar K, Facebook Review

" Atmosphere is great with attentive staff. We had the Korean Sesame Ginger Wings and the Keema appetizers. Both were excellent and flavorful. The Crab Lemongrass Soup was robust and had plenty of crab. Very savory. We had the Sesame-Crusted Salmon With Wasabi Buerre Blanc and The Shrimp Tandoori for the entrees. The salmon was flaky and tasty with plenty of nuttiness from the sesame seeds. The Tandoori was spicy and the shrimp had the heads on. While some may prefer headless shrimp, the true shrimp flavoring of this dish comes from the heads. Plenty of Basmati rice with the shrimp and Jasmine rice with the salmon. The dessert was a Mango White Chocolate Cheesecake. Drizzled with both mango and raspberry sauce, it was sweet and mangoriffic. Cocktails to die for! We had the Bloody Mary (made by Lane) as well as The "Best Damn Chai in New Orleans" and A great ginger mint sage peach drink called "Southern Nights" both made by Snow, the bartender. Overall everything was perfect!" Google Review by A. J. Leitell
