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! They have all the classic dim sum choices as well as the traditional push carts that wheel around the steamy... read more

Published reports in local media indicate that this restaurant is closing and will re-open as a Chinese restaurant with a different name.

Silver Pond is Chinese restaurant the caters to Chinese customers as well as Americans. It's Chinese menu is the result of a full, professional kitchen with the largest variety of dishes in Northern New Jersey, and as good a taste as New York can offer. Whether its Dim Sum, hot pots or duck, they are prepared to please you. They... More

Closed. We went to have Dim Sum there as we do every other month or so. We were so sad to see you that it had closed. My husband and I have been going there for over 20 years. So sad, we walked down the street and asked a shop owner what had happened and he said the gentleman who... More

they offer great dim sum, but getting service is next to impossible unless you speak Chinese. The dim sum is worth the visit, but be prepared for difficult service.

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

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....
