Have a Taste of Delicious Thai Food at Silk Road Thai Bistro in Bonifacio Global City

Silk Road Thai Restaurant at BGC

Silk Road is a Thai restaurant in Bonifacio Global City known for it's quality Thai dishes. My expectations were quite high fore Silk Road because the restaurant has pretty great reviews on Zomato. In my opinion, I think the food was good, the service was excellent, and the ambiance was amazing.

The restaurant is actually quite beautiful. I love the ambiance because it seems like a very relaxing place to dine. Silk Road looks very upscale and flashy.

The food was pretty good, although I wouldn't say that it's authentic Thai cuisine. 

Best Sellers: Phuket Goong Sarong, Pink Pomelo Salad, Pad Thai, Tom Yum, Siam Chicken Wrap, Siamese Pork Ribs, B. Pepper Soft Shell Crab, Silk Road Signature Rice

I would recommend that you order the Tom Yum, Silk Road Signature Rice, and the Siamese Pork Ribs. The Siamese Pork ribs were cooked to perfection, and instantly became my favorite dish. It was soft, juicy, and very flavorful.

The signature fried rice was so-so but it was a good compliment to the other dishes as a way to balance the flavors.

We initially tried the Tom Yum with 'medium' spice level, however I didn't think it was spicy enough (they probably didn't want to make it too hot to suit the Filipino palate) so I asked the waiter to add more. I recommend you order the Tom Yum with the maximum spice level for it to really be authentic.

The Pad Thai was wrapped with cheese. It's the first time I've seen Pad Thai paired with cheese. It was good, but I would prefer Pad Thai to be more authentic manner. Points for creativity though.

I wouldn't recommend the Thai Milk Tea, it was too sweet and it tasted like it was made from Milk Tea powder rather than freshly brewed Thai tea.

You can always add flavor to the dishes using these condiments to suit your taste.

I think the best thing about Silk Road is the service. The waiters are very knowledgeable on the restaurant's top dishes, they were kind, and very quick to respond. That's why service gets a perfect score for me.

Here's the final rating for Silk Road Thai Bistro:

Food Quality: 4.167
Service Quality: 5.0
Ambiance: 4.75

Overall Score: 4.5

Overall, I would recommend that dining in at Silk Road. It may not serve the most authentic Thai food in town, but it's a great place to have a bowl of Tom Yum or plate of Pad Thai after a hard day's work. I would certainly come back here again.
