A plain, unpretentious chinese restaurant. Not very large, so you might call ahead for reservations of you have more than four. All the dishes are great, but we like the Peking duck, sweet and sour fish, Chinese pork chops and the winter melon soup. Specials are written on the wall in Chinese. If you like Chinese food, you will not... More

Very decent Cantonese style for food, decent portions, very good taste wise, fairly reasonable prices. Service is your typical Chinese restaurant, levels can be good and bad, all at the same time. Lunch specials are good. Parking can be a problem.

Better than average Chinese restaurant. Food was good and portions were good. Eggplant clay pot dish was very good. Fried rice was okay not too much flavor. Restaurant gets very crowded and very very loud on weekends. Service was good. Food served fairly quickly.

Authentic Chinese food at it's best!!! The first thing you notice when entering Silver House restaurant is that the majority of the patrons are Chinese. This tells me that the people who generally know Chinese food the best, know that this place has excellent food. If you are looking for a fancy, quiet, or romantic dining experience, this is not...

Had dinner with family (12 adults/children) last nite and had amazing meal. Traditional food - salty fish fried rice, whole fish, pork chops peking sauce, peking duck, steak cubes. Not a fancy place - when parking in back - walk past/thru the kitchen. Very good for large tables. We are Chinese family.

We love coming here for fast Chinese food that is always tasty. Our favorites are the egg white fried rice with mushrooms and dried scallop as well as the salt and pepper eggplant and pumpkin!
