Great place in Northern New Jersey for authentic Dim Sum

Not too many Chinese establishments in Northern New Jersey serve Dim Sum, so most people are forced to ventured into NYC, but Silver Pond in Fort Lee certainly meets up to my expectations!

This restaurant has been here for a number of years and has very good food. They have rice dishes ( large portion of rice with an entree served on top of it) that you see in Chinatown. The Chow Fun is quite good and is a large portion. We decided to try the Peking Duck which we found to be... More

Food was fresh and tasty. Drinks were strong. Best Dim Sum. I really loved the eggplant stuffed with shrimp with Black Bean sauce! Yum

The Chinese food at this Ft. Lee standby, in the same location for 25 years, is only average, but what bumps this place up one category is their serving of dim sum daily at lunch. We have eaten here several times over these past 25 years. I went for lunch today with a business associate and the restaurant was nearly... More

Restaurant opening hours are 11:30 to. But they opened at 11:45 and we had almost left the area. What a shame it would have been. They had really fresh dim sum for us. Enjoyed everything we choose

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....

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... More

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... More

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...
