Stepping inside Silk Road is like going on a mini vacation: with an Old World atmosphere and traditional Afghan cuisine, Silk Road transports visitors to a place filled with new smells, tastes, sights, and sounds. We're fortunate to have this unique gem right in Warren—not many places have an Afghan restaurant in their town!

Offering fare like kabobs, salads, and dumplings (not to mention the bread they make fresh for each order!), all of Silk Road's food is fresh, healthy, one hundred percent organic, and packed with amazing flavor. With a cozy, relaxed atmosphere and a customer-service oriented staff, Silk Road is an ideal place to enjoy a quiet lunch out (try their spectacular lunch specials!) or a wonderful dinner with family and friends.

We took a closer look at the traditional Afghan restaurant in our video:

The Fare

Regulars adore Silk Road's hearty kabobs, which range from more traditional meats like chicken to more exciting choices like lamb and shrimp. Their rice dishes also get rave reviews; customers particularly love their Naringe Palaw, a rice dish cooked with saffron, fresh orange peels, almonds, and pistachios. And, as you may suspect, their freshly made bread is another customer favorite. Made fresh to order out of a clay oven, it's an authentic and delicious way to start out a meal. Yum!

A Word From Silk Road's Owner

It's not just the food that makes Silk Road such a special place; the owner, Mustafa Sidiqee, brings a true love of cooking and a passion for serving others to this great restaurant:

"I love coming to work," he says about the restaurant. "I love coming to see the employees and the customers. To give them a plate of food that we make, it brings warmth not just to my heart but to everyone's heart who works hard just to make sure everyone is happy."

With a staff like that, it's no wonder that Warren loves Silk Road!

Silk Road is located at 41 Mountain Boulevard, Warren, NJ 07059.
