“Excellent Chinese food that is good quality, tasty and fast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner here in July 2012. I really liked the restaurant. We ordered several plates for sharing and the serving sizes were generous. Chicken was all white breast meat that was tasty and excellent quality. Lemon chicken was some of the best I have ever had. Rice was also excellent and shrimp dish. Dumplings and pot stickers were large and tasty. Service was fast and friendly. We said we were in a hurry and we were in and out under an hour. It is a busy and bustling place good for a large round table of people. Only drawback was stairs to climb up to get into the restaurant. It appears not all that nice or clean as you walk up. Also not good for elderly but once sitting down and enjoying the food I would highly recommend this restaurant. Prices reasonable as well.

“Could be Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

I visited this restaurants a few times. It's situated on the second floor of a building in a very convenient corner location of Calgary's China town on the south side of the Lion Bridge off Center Street. There you will find a wide variety of traditional Southern Chinese dishes and dim sum with fair service and quality of food. But it could be better! I have at least twice had dinner there in some celebrations and I found the food quality in those occasions way better than usual. I guess the reason might be that for important meals, the top chef or the owner himself did the cooking. I might be wrong but it certainly has better potential than you think.

“The Best Dim Sum Anywhere !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I'm a huge fan of "Dim Sum" and have made a point of visiting the best dim sum restaurants ( according to Trip Advisor ) during my travels to places like San Francisco, New York, Seattle etc. and while all were excellent, none could compare to the Silver Dragon in Calgary. If you enjoy this type of cuisine and are in the Stampede city....don't miss this place !!
