Had cashew chicken and asked to make it spicy. Yum! Hearty lunch on our way up to Banff upper springs.

Though the food quality was not really good here, we met a very friendly waiter who is absolutely the ambassador of Banff here. Special thanks to him who advised us to visit some sightseeing points, such as Bow Falls, Banff Gondola, etc. also explained to us how to get there attentively.

This was our first time back since the restaurant moved from downtown. Although the parking is much easier it has lost its central location and convenient access. The service was fair at best- if the waiter had spent half of his time looking after us rather than visit with the family at the next table he might have noticed some... More

Five of us went here. I had a bowl of seafood soup. Tasted great and the staff were top notch. The restaurant is on the higher end in prices.

This has got to be the worst and most expensive Chinese food I've ever eaten. The food was bland,tastless and mediocre. Not worth the $100+ for 2 people. If you like Chinese food, give this place a miss because you'll not get what you're hoping for here. Very disappointing.

We had Peking duck, special chow mien, prawn curry & crispy chilli beef. It all tasted very good. Sounds strange but tasted as good, if not better than Chinese food in UK.

Reaching expectation for Canadian Chinese food. Food came out fast. Nice decorations and services. Drinks took long to come. I was hungry so everything was good.

We attended a conference at Fairmont Banff & at lunchtime they released about 1,000 people to "go figure out lunch"-- despite being on a tight timeline. All Fairmont restaurants booked up near instantly so we walked down to Silver Dragon (about a 10 minute walk from hotel). We all had a lunch special (soup, entrée, rice) & it was ok.... More

Every time we go to Banff we always go to have a dinner in this restaurant. We are foodies and like only the best, and this restaurant definitely meets our expectations! It's serves the best Chinese food for miles. If you like Canadian Chinese then you have to specify what you want, since you definitely don't want Chinese food. I... More

Description
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
