Well marked by its warm persimmon-and-white neon sign, Silver Dragon is one of Calgary’s oldest and best-known Chinese restaurants. A comfortable Cantonese-style dining hall, this second-floor restaurant serves Cantonese and Szechuan dishes as well as Chinese-Western standards that are a cut above. Open all week, the restaurant also offers dim sum lunch service.
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.
