On one hand, the Silk Road Noodle Bar has everything a functioning restaurant needs to advertise itself. On the other hand, it wasn’t open when it said it would be.
The restaurant occupies a pretty fascinating part of Parramatta Road. Across the road is the Horse & Jockey pub, the only reminder of the existence of the Homebush racecourse. Beside it is the Midnight Star function centre, a former theatre and squatter’s delight. With so much going on around it, “Gary” has managed to keep the Silk Road a mystery.
It bombards you with two sets of opening hours, yet doesn’t offer a phone number. BYO indeed.
RECENTLY REFURBISHED UPDATE:
Real estate agent Taylor Nicholas has added some interior shots of the Silk Road to its online listing in the hope of drumming up more interest. For those of you who are interested, but find it’s a bit out of your price range, check the relevant pics right here:
You can almost taste the silk from here. Thanks reader David for the heads-up!
