Established in November 2001, Silk Road Restaurant is a full-service restaurant concept featuring selective cuisines that stretch along the historical Silk Road in China namely the provinces of Sichuan, Shaanxi, Liaoning and Beijing.

A team of highly specialised and trained chefs ensure that the original unique flavour and taste of the dishes are maintained with the judicious use of specially imported spices and sauces.

The service staff whilst providing excellent service standards are also knowledgeable about the culinary customs and history of the dishes served in the restaurant.

Unlike typical Chinese restaurants, Silk Road Restaurant's ambience and décor define unique dignified elegance through the use of warm and neutral colours to express a contemporary feel. The warm tones and dim lights add a soft, soothing touch to the dining experience.

A special eye-catching feature of the restaurant is its showcase-kitchen concept, where customers can see the food being prepared. In particular, the chefs demonstrate their skill at the special handmade noodles and juicy dumplings. A tea master will also be on hand to serve aromatic eight-treasure tea as he pours piping hot water from a copper kettle with a metre long spout.

Since its inception, the restaurant has won many accolades and rave reviews from discerning locals, tourists and Chinese expatriates alike, who are well-travelled in China and keen to enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine.

    Silk Road, located on the 2nd floor within the Amara Hotel, Tanjong Pagar, has been one of my favourite Chinese restaurants for over 2 years. They specialise in cuisine from Sichuan, Shaanxi, Beijing and Liaoning. My full review can be found at: http://foodieah.blogspot.com/2008/12/silk-road.html Their menu is incredibly vast, and I must admit that I was almost never disappointed by anything I picked from it. Their cooking is consistently of very high standards, especially their dumplings and noodles. I love the open kitchen concept, which adds a twist of action to a comfortable, softly lit and spacious environment. Service needs a bit of work to match the food, but considering the fairly reasonable prices it's something that most would be prepared to accept.

    A snack is regularly served as you sit at the table. It is either steamed peanuts with tofu or this pickled vegetable. I love the steamed peanuts, while I find this pickle slightly salty.

    My all time favourite, and one dish I must order every single time I visit this restaurant is the shaved noodles. They are served both dry or in soup with beef or seafood. I recommend the dry shaved noodles with beef ($6). These noodles, as the name suggests, are shaved directly from the dough and they have an irregular, rough texture.

    The Shenyang combination dumplings ($8) are filled with vegetables, pork and prawns and they are very juicy and tasty even without the sauce provided, which is quite strong in garlic.

    The Fried french beans with pork ($13) is one of my favourite Chinese vegetable dishes, and Silk Road serves a very authentic version of the dish as opposed to the sweeter version that is more commonly served in Singapore. The savoury and crispy pork accompanies well fried and textured green beans.

    Out of all, the Sichuan eggplant with bean sauce ($13) is the one I enjoy the least. I find that the flavours are too overwhelming and they cover up the delicate aroma of eggplant. Although the dish might be authentically done, it wouldn't be my first choice.

    I ended the meal with 2 Chinese desserts. The Yam paste with Gingko nuts ($5) was very smooth and delicate, served warm and well balanced in sweetness.

    I love the cotton cake with coconut ($6), consisting in extremely soft and fluffy textured squares of steamed egg white lightly sweetened and dusted in dry coconut flakes. This dessert is recommended if you are feeling full after the meal and you need to end it with something sweet. It is so light that you won't feel aggravated by it!

    The total bill was $102, including an Eight Treasure tea ($3) and 2 soft drinks. There is very little to argue about this restaurant. Their food is consistently top notch, offering a variety of regional dishes that are not commonly served in Singapore, the ambience is pleasant and quiet and it's reasonably priced.
