“Good, authentic comfort food”
Review of Silver Pond - CLOSED

Silver Pond
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 March 2015

Located on Main Street, this restaurant(here since 1990) serves very good authentic Chinese cuisine. They have rice dishes($6.95 lunch and $7.95 dinner) which include a heaping serving of rice with a portion of several entrees which one can choose from such as fish, chicken, etc. We had the beef chow fun which was excellent-plenty of beef and a good-sized portion. But the price is two times the price than in Chinatown. But if you factor the tolls, parking and gas then it could end up the same. The prices were a bit high also for the dimsum. As we were here for an early dinner, the place was not crowded. The service was fine but the waitstaff do not smile much. A party room is available, Parking is a problem. If you can park on the street you are lucky, if not there is a municipal lot across the street behind the post office.

I've been going here since I was a kid and it's authentic Chinese food. It offers great lunch specials, big portions and dim sum everyday of the week from 11-3PM and variety of food for dinner. You can't get good dim sum for cheap in NJ and they offer it which is a plus in everyone's books! Come and give it a shot.

Always love it, had new dish this last time and it way amazing: lobster chow fun. Lived in China four years and miss it, but this gives me a little taste of it again.

I have been going to that place for several years. The Dim sum is as good as any famous manhattan chinatown eatery. They have also a full a la carte menu with yummy concoctions, but we go there for the dimsum. The food keep coming from the kitchen and will keep you entertain and satisfied. No fancy decor, but confortable and clean. For us, it is a good alternative to chinatown and expensive parking. No need to list the best courses, they have all the classics. You can eat for as low as $25 pp and be in dim sum heaven!

We weren't expecting anything amazing since this is New Jersey and far from the culinary splendor of Chinatown, but we were pleasantly surprised. We went early on Saturday at 11, expecting to beat the crowds. It turned out that the crowds did not start arriving until after 12. It was nice to have cart service with friendly staff. And the food was very high quality. The shrimp in the shumai were fresh and firm. We were especially impressed with the mustard greens in oyster sauce. We will be coming back (again and again) and telling all of our friends about this little hidden gem. Next time, though, we will go after 12, since the variety of food is limited if you go too early.
