The Silk Route restaurant on Birmingham’s Dudley Port is an international buffet restaurant that is proving to be hugely popular with Dudley locals. Bringing together the flavours of Europe, Asia and a handful of British dishes, this is a serious buffet. There are plenty of places offering Asian buffet, but Silk Route stands out with the sheer range of dishes, cooked fresh on site each day, on offer for lunch and dinner.
Tipton’s Silk Route is a classic buffet restaurant with ambition. Serving dishes from across Europe and Asia and drawing on traditional British dishes from time to time, this is a buffet with a difference. Affordably priced and with plenty of special offers (dine in the week for the best discounts) this is a family favourite on Dudley Port. Buffet restaurant conjures up images of congealing food under hot lamps, but there’s none of that here, instead dishes are prepared fresh each day on site.
Diners at Tipton’s Silk Route are impressed with the open kitchen’s interactive approach to dining. Diners are invited to ask the chefs for a freshly made naan or waffle, or request a specially put together dish with their prefered ingredients. Of course, the kitchen’s repertoire should be enough to keep all but the fussiest diners satisfied. Offering the best of European cuisine (we like the beef stroganoff), Asian (try the duck and plum sauce) and subcontinental classics (gobi aloo and chicken jalfrezi are tasty and surprisingly light options). This is a great family restaurant in Dudley Port, a short drive from Birmingham city centre.
Beautiful food.. Beautiful place.. Lots of choice.. Can't wait to go again..

Good food. Friendly staff and very clean restaurant . Would recommend
Booked a table via the internet notifying them of a groupon voucher and was rung up by staff stating that that groupon vouchers could only be seated at either 5pm or 8.30pm. The vouchers did not state an exact time only between 5pm and 11pm. This really annoyed me at the start. First impressions were negative before I even got there. Once there at 8.15pm the service at the front desk was poor and the front bar area was full of dirty glasses and half eaten food which was still there when we left. Service at the front table was poor. Eventually when we got seated the restaurant was nicely presented and I couldn't believe why the restaurant rang me to change my booking time for half 8 as it was only half full. There was a good selection of Chinese, Indian and English food. I've been to better restaurants such as cosmos and ming moon for a larger choice. The food I had was hot and enjoyable. I couldn't fault the food to be honest and was well and truly stuffed at the end of the night. The two English girls who were on table service worked their socks off taking plates and drinks orders. Their service was speedy and they were very pleasant, polite, and very efficient. It was nice having a service such as that. Upon paying at the end of the evening I had a telling off at the front desk as I didn't give the groupon voucher before being seated even though I told them upon booking and told the table staff that I had one. Overall the food and table service was great and couldn't fault any of it. Only annoyance was the booking and the poor service upon entering the restaurant and upon leaving and paying. It is worth a visit if you want to stay local but I think I'd rather go to to Ming Moon or Cosmos.
Having read some of the reviews I went with quite high expectations which sadly weren't met. The restaurant itself is very pleasant nicely furnished with comfortable seating. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. My biggest disappointment was the food. I have been to a number of all you can eat buffets and I'm yet to find one that does really good food. The apple crumble was the best thing on the menu! That said I would probably go again and with lower expectations find it more enjoyable
unfortunately due to train cancellations my partner could not arrive home in time for us to visit the Silk Restaurant. I contacted the restaurant by telephone the lady who answered was exceptionally polite and understanding, we originally changed the time for a later meal but on the second call I had to cancel the booking. However I felt that her customer service was so good we will book again and visit the Restaurant without fail hoping thje Restaurant is as good as her customer service.
My First time visit here the host was friendly and she lets us choose our Table The food was not bad but short of choice should have more,puddings are nice.Silk Route is Quite Small Resturant compared to other Buffet Restaurants In Dudley the Resturant and Tables is very Clean and its well look after. I had a 10% percent voucher knocked of my friends bill I download the voucher on Their web site.I Would definitely returning back.
I've been to silk route 4 times now and I'm pleased to it's been a great experience every time. The food is exalant and very verid and the staff are attentive and friendly. I'll be back very soon
The food here was top quality and hot, unlike a lot of buffets. Service was good and the booking went through fine. Nothing to complain about at all. Will be back again
