Was recommended to go here by a few locals in the town. When arrived the waiter who served us was rude, abrupt and didn't understand a word we were saying. They took our order for the appetisers then took the plates away then took the order for one member of our parties main but nobody else's. After finally getting their... More

We walked down from the hotel for something other than the hotel food and came across the Silver Dragon. Its a very vibrant place with lots of tourist, locals and many chinese people who all seemed to be looking very happy with the food. Had a very nice meal with great service and lots of help on what we should... More

Great experience. Veggie spring rolls and sweet and sour pork were delicious, seemed a little overly sweet but still tasty. Very friendly and prompt service. Price a bit high but I'd return.

It is by far the WORST Chinese restaurant ever. We saw it on the tourist map and wanted to try it. We orders the a BBQ Pork fired rice and mushroom fried rice. See what we got in the attached pics. Can you tell the difference between these two?!?! I wonder how much pro they put in?!?! They basically taste... More

We should have known better when we walked in and there were (only!) Asian Tour Groups seated and talking very loudly. We should have exited...we didn't. We ordered an incredibly insipid Hot and Sour Soup - thin, tasteless, cheaply made, not filled with goodies like it is supposed to be - and the strangest egg rolls that I have ever... More

The food took 5-10min.for them to serve. But instead of bringing a pitcher with water,they had to take it to the kitchen. So that means that it takes a while to do that. Plus,we are philipinos and our waiter could speak chinese, english, and knows how to say "thank you" in philipino. The food was delicious. If the water was... More

We arrived at 11:10am so there was no wait but the place did get busy rather quick for a Tuesday. Service was fast. Lemon chicken was so good. The pork, rice, and veggies were as any other Asian restaurant. Over all the restaurant is nice and very clean. I mean it wasn't the worst place to dine but certainly not... More

Restaurant is located not far from Banff center, offering free ample parking. The Chinese food served however is pretty same served in most mediocre other eating places and has no definite orientation. In short dull and repetitive. It's o.k if one is hungry , but doesn't warrant a visit from one arriving from abroad and looking for something "Banff special".... More

Recommended by our son who lives in Banff, and he was spot on. Food was fresh, tasty and superb, staff attentive and professional. The restaurant is well appointed yet traditional. We sat on the window and enjoyed a great view of the mountains. Not as convenient as being on Banff Avenue but worth the effort if you like your chinese.

Our group ordered the standard banquet and found it a little bland - designed for westerners, and it was not quite as hot (in temperature) as we would have liked. We also ordered one a-la-carte dish which arrived piping hot and was very flavoursome. The staff were efficient and attentive.

Thank QuietlyRetired

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
