The Silver Dragon seems to have been there, near the Bow River, forever. It is like going home for long-time Calgarians. It is shabby but comfortable. The service is attentive, the food is predictable and good. It is in the heart of China Town and conveniently situated just a couple of doors east of Centre Street. Try the Ginger Beef... More

Ordered a large takeout of our favourites.. Had too wait a long time because they were busy. When I opened the containers at home, only the rice and the noodles were filled to the top.. All the rest with the meats and seafoods were less than full. Best to eat in. Food is on the expensive side.

For lunch they have a dim sum menu or you can ask for the more extensive menu. We started with pot stickers and hot and sour soup and moved on to Lo Main noodles and Mongolian Beef. William was an attentive and genial waiter.

Very rarely does a Chinese food restaurant reach this level of awe for me. Settled in the downtown core, this restaurant provides a wide range of traditional chinese dishes. Being a first visit we tried the ginger beef, fried rice, bok choi, some chow mein. The basics. These guys went above and beyond for each one with each bite being... More

Saturday dim sum. I think the service is excellent. All servers were in uniform and the restaurant was decorated for Chinese New year. Did not have to wait as we went early. The dim sum is pushed around on carts. Most dim sum is pretty tasty, I wouldn't say this is my favorite place, but it's alright.

Visited the Silver Dragon for an early dinner over the Christmas holidays. I remember going here when I was a kid, so its longevity is to be admired. We were early in the evening so it was not too busy, but I have to say it was the best Chinese food we've had in a long while. Fresh and hot,... More

Following a tradition of more than 10 years, our family went to the Silver Dragon for New Year's Eve and we were very disappointed in the whole experience. Although the food is still quite good, the service was very poor and there was no atmosphere or sense of celebration of the occasion. We ordered about a dozen entries from the... More

We were a group of 8 at one of the big round tables. We had very prompt service. Lots of great selection. The ginger fried beef, pork buns and shrimp were my favourites. Really good. Very filling. I'll be back soon

I went to Silver Dragon as a group of 11. Luckily it wasnt crowded. The local ordered a bunch of dim sum and dinner items that all looked delicious. Since I am the resident vegan, I ordered off of the menu and got the Ma Po Fried Tofu and it was wonderful. I don't know what they did to it... More

Had dim sum lunch at Silver Dragon after taking a look at other dim sum restaurants in Chinatown. The only one with a queue so that says something about it. Waitresses pushed dim sum trolleys around although I prefer made-to-order for the sizzling hot freshness. Quick enough some dim sums got cold because of the snowy morning. Everything from desserts,... More
