I recently revisited Silver Pond for takeout. As stated previously this is a relatively new location, on the corner of Academy & Dublin where the China Restaurant was located. I ordered appetizers of Egg Rolls (4), Pork Fried Rice, Spare Ribs (4) and an entree of Sesame Chicken and bill was $40.00. With that I received no soy sauce, no... More

So I've heard and seen good things about Silver Pond but didn't really expect it to be that much better than any of the other Chinese restaurants around town. I had a coupon for $10 off $40! Those of you that read any of my reviews here on Trip Advisor, know I don't go anywhere without them. I love my... More

As far as Chinese food goes, this was one of the worst tasting & presentation I have ever encountered. Came here based on the name and reputation - what a disappointment. Tasteless, flavorless high priced dish of salty goo!

We were looking for something different while visiting Colorado Springs and chose the Silver Pond. We were glad that we did! Our server Kym was attentive and very helpful in explaining what each dish was comprised of. The food was delicious, the service was great! Kudos to Kym and the owners.

The restaurant is very tastefully decorated, a notch or two above most Chinese restaurants. We chose from their luncheon menu. The hot and sour soup was as good as I have had anywhere. We ordered the Hunan Chicken and the Orange Peel Chicken. Our orders came very promptly. Both were excellent -- chicken very tender, vegetables not overdone, and very... More

Had been a while since I had visited this restaurant when in previous years it was the premier place to take business customers for lunch and I frequented, often. They have since relocated three times but all within approx. a mile of their original location. Further away from my place of business but closer to my home. On a whim... More

We stopped here when we could not locate the restaurant we were looking for. The location is easy to get to. We found the place well decorated, bathrooms hospital clean, and the server attentive without being overbearing. We all had the lunch special which included an entree, spring roll, and soup. The spring rolls were fried perfectly with no greasy... More

When I go out I only want two things out of any restaurant. I expect attentive and excellent service and food that is served quickly and at the temperature it is expected to be at. Silver Pond met these expectations and sadly many restaurants around this area do not. I will be back because they met these expectations and as... More

Overbreaded, overgreased, overpriced. Lousy, cranky service with an attitude. Pei Wei is right down the road, so much better on every front. I used to eat here weekly 10 years ago, left because the hostess/owner woman who was about the meanest individual I'd ever met, just got tired of dealing with her to get my Chinese food fix (chef guy/owner...
