Silver Pond recently moved and I hope their new location brings them many new customers. We ate there for my birthday and it was a fabulous meal! To start with their Hot and Sour soup was the best I've ever had. It was thick rather...More

Thank you for your kind and enthusiastic response! We love our Hot & Sour soup too, and the Scallops & Prawns is a chef original. We hope to serve you again soon! Happy Belated Birthday, as well!

I was in the mood for Chinese so we thought we would give it a try. We had previously enjoyed this restaurant, and hoped the changes would be for the better. We were not impressed. My Kung Pao Chicken was not spicy at all, even...More

We're sorry that your experience at Silver Pond was not exceptional. We try to make our spicy dishes mild so that they are palatable to a wider audience. If you enjoy extra spicy foods, please let our servers know so that our chef can make...More

The decor in the restaurant is beautiful. The food is good, though nothing to go out of your way for. Decent price for the lunch menu items, although the portions are a little on the small side. Nowhere near as good as Hunan Springs http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g33364-d380147-Reviews-Hunan_Springs-Colorado_Springs_El_Paso_County_Colorado.html...More
