Silver Fountain is our go-to place for family gatherings - excellent banquet menus; Mr. Li, the owner and chef and his wife the hostess, make sure that you are taken care of, no matter how busy the palce is. Although we like the a la carte menu - we find the food is more authentic from the banquet menu so... More

I was told this is the oldest Dimsum place here and the food is dubbed by traditional Chinese folks as authentic. I was not as impressed as I was told. But my older family members loved it. The good thing is they have a variety of dimsum menu to choose from but the downside is I felt it was not... More

We had family dinners, birthdays, wedding rehearsal night dinner, business meetings, etc and none have been disappointing. I suggest bringing 8 or 10 people and select one of the banquet menus. The portions are large and all the dishes are excellent. . We've been frequenting this restaurant since 1998.

We decided to try Silver Fountain since we were looking for a good local Chinese restaurant. We went to the lunch buffet. Not expensive, but no taste either. Everything was bland and uninteresting. Fried foods were all batter, and other items showed no imagination at all. Maybe other things on the menu are ok, but we have no interest in... More

Our friends invited my husband and I for dim sum this weekend at Silver Fountain - a restaurant just a few minutes from our house that we never tried. We were excited and an added bonus is that our hostess spoke Chinese, grew up in Silver Spring and has gone to Silver Fountain for years. I am lost when it... More

We have been going to Silver Fountain for Dim Sum more for convenience over the years; is it so close to home. This past Sunday we thought it would be crowed as it is near xmass time, years past we have found the lobby packed with standing room only to get a number a wait to get seated. Not this... More

I've never been to a dim sum where I had to wait so long for a cart to come by. I was so hungry but no one would come by with any food. The food I did get was tasty, but I left the restaurant hungry. I would not return to this restaurant because there are better dim sum restaurants... More

My family goes here for dim sum because it doesn't get too crowded, and there is plenty of parking. I'd say the food is pretty good, but not the best in the area.

We have been to the Silver Fountain at least 30 times in the last 41/2 years so this is a good time to say a few words about this eatery especially since we've just had another good meal. We come here often in part because of its convenient location (in the Aspen Hill Shopping Center) and its clean environment. Also,... More

We stumbled onto this place thinking of going to Panera. They had a good assortment and were still pushing cars until at least 2 if not later. everything we had was pretty good and, while I know a thing or two about dim sum, I defer to my born and raised Chinese friend who makes regular trips back - "this...
