After bringing authentic Chinese food to Banff for 26 years, Silver Dragon has moved to a new location five minutes from downtown (south of the Bow River bridge on the road to The Fairmont Banff Springs). Customers now enjoy on-site parking and mountain views from three sides. But they still indulge in the same flavourful and attractively presented dishes that have made Silver Dragon so popular; expert chefs continue to cook in Cantonese and Szechuan styles using fresh ingredients. Tables for groups are available, the private room seats 20, and take-out and delivery are offered. Menu Samples Appetizers: spring rolls; dry spareribs; grilled pork and vegetable dumplings; salt and pepper seafood Soup: hot and sour; won ton; seafood; chicken noodle Rice: fried rice with choice of vegetables, chicken, pork, shrimp or beef; steamed rice Noodles: signature Silver Dragon special chow mein; Shanghai-style fried thick noodles; Singapore-style rice vermicelli; pan fried noodles with beef Vegetables: stir fried garden vegetable; egg foo yung; baby bok choy; Chinese broccoli; Szechuan eggplant Duck: Peking duck; duck with ginger and spring onions; bone-in BBQ duck Chicken: special crispy chicken; sizzling chicken hot pot; stir fried chicken with almonds; palace-style chicken; sweet and sour chicken balls; lemon chicken Beef: ginger fried beef; Mongolian beef; beef with black pepper sauce on hot plate; curry beef hot pot Pork: braised pork with vegetables; mu shu pork with crepes; Peking-style pork loins; honey garlic spareribs Seafood: steamed or stir fried live lobster; sea bass; sauteed scallops with celery; salt and pepper squid; Szechuan fish in spicy broth Desserts: kiwi surprise; banana split; lychee fruit Signature cocktails, martinis, Asian beers and Chinese liqueurs

Lucked out finding this place

$40 got us a table full of food and it was all really quite good. I was very surprised. We stopped because there was a huge crowd of Asian tourists emerging from the restaurant to get on their tour bus. We assumed (rightly) that there would be authentic Chinese food available.

We phoned in our food order and told them we'll be picking it up. When we arrived, the food was ready. We requested for 10 paper plates and 10 sets of cutlery. The first server went to the manager to ask and the manager came to us to explain they usually give only 1 plate and cutlery per dish, and... More

Really enjoyed the good quality food and good service. It's also a nice short walk out of town and we looped back via Bow Falls. One of the best meals we've had in Banff!

We are regular visitors to the area, and noticed that the Silver Dragon had moved in on Sulpher Mountain. We were looking for nice, but affordable for our family of 4 with two young ones [8 and 4]. Chinese seemed like a viable option, so we ventured in. The service that we experienced was stellar; these people care about their... More

We were a party of 12 who visited for dinner last week. We were able to make a reservation the day before which was great. The service was nice as was the atmosphere and the food was delicious! We will be back.

We were at the Banff Springs for a conference, and this place was close to our hotel, so we gave it a try. The waiter was super-friendly and kind of funny. We enjoyed his banter and commentary. The soup and spring rolls that came out prior to our meals took a surprisingly long time to appear. The hot and sour... More
