I have been going here for 15+ years, it is a family favourite! Fantastic Authentic Chinese food, allthough the restaurant could use a little up dating and the service isn't always the best, the food has never failed me or my family!! Incredible, yum yum yum.. I recommend the beef lettuce wrap and snow pea tips in garlic!!!!!
Food better than service and very consistent. Sometimes lengthy lineups but I would highly recommend it.
Friendly staff and good for business meetings!

One of the city’s best-loved dim sum spots, Chinatown’s Silver Dragon also serves Cantonese and Szechuan dinner cuisine. Fish and seafood dishes are a standout, including entrees prepared with fresh crab and lobster plucked straight from the restaurant’s seafood tank. Highly recommended, the Peking duck meal is served as one, two or three courses. Eau Claire Market Cinemas is located just west of Chinatown on the opposite side of the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre.
One of the oldest and best-known restaurants in Chinatown, Silver Dragon is a casual, contemporary spot accented with dragon-and-phoenix designs. Its à la carte lunch and dinner menus feature ginger beef. A perfect balance of meat and sweet, it’s one of a handful of western Chinese dishes on a menu that’s primarily Cantonese with a selection of other Chinese regional favourites including Szechuan dishes.
The very attentive dim sum cart service here includes a tall fry cart serving items such as pork dumplings, shrimp crepes and ground shrimp on pepper halves direct from the grill to your table. A Chinatown landmark with a loyal clientele, you’re best advised to arrive early, as lineups are the norm at noon.
