Ordered on Halloween night, food was the best Chinese takeout we have had in Calgary, so glad we finally tried Silver Dragon!

I am from NYC Chinatown, and our family was craving some dim sum during our travels to Canada. This place is not as large as the typical restaurants we are used to, but it delivered! The food was delicious and authentic. They even had my...favorite dessert, almond jello.More

A fellow traveller recommended this place so we looked forward to it. On arrival a friendly gentleman showed us to our table. Then the waitress (Sandy, she didn't introduce herself it was on her badge) placed the menu on the table then poured us water...whilst not looking at us or the glass. Sandy took our food order with as much enthusiasm as a person who clearly couldn't care less then left the table. We only drank the water as Sandy didn't ask if we wanted anything else, I felt jealous as a nearby table with a very friendly waiter were we'll served by him with drinks aplenty. The food itself was fine but I've never witnessed customer service as bad as this. Sandy's mood lightened when it was Bill time but it was too late. Verdict- food OK, service- very poor.More

Enjoyed a nice dim sum dinner experience. The restaurant was very full but service did not suffer and we were brought our various choices quickly and with a smile. Too many to mention a favorite! Will definitely recommend to others.

Just delish. Loved the egg roll.. an actual real egg roll. The Cantonese Chow mein was yum....the mushrooms in it 😁. All in all just a great meal after a long day! And delivered with a smile.

Silver Dragon was our first stop after landing at YYC. The Dim Sum were amazing and the service was excellent. Make sure to ask for a table with the large Lazy Susan in the middle which makes sharing much easier.

We actually planned on another nearby restaurant that we found on TA, but it was closed and this was open! We enjoyed some different entrees then we usually get back home and we’re pleasantly surprised by the flavors! The crispy tofu in ginger sauce was...amazing and all the portions were big.More

Well, I trundled off to Chinatown for dinner and of course my FAV place was closed! So no biggie, Silver Dragon was the next street over, and I haven't been there in like 11 years so what the heck ...... Got in there and it...was dead quiet because of a snow storm that dumped on everything but that's OK, I made it. And look a Late Night Dim Sum menu ! SCORE So of course Har Gow and Siu Mai are a given, you gotta run with the classics and I eat it every weekend so what the heck .... no rice pancakes so as an option I got what are deep fried won-tons essentially and then steamed squid in garlic sauce, then she asks me if I want a bowl of rice?! With dim sum? Meh, OK! Al in all bleeeach ... the two tasted like last Sundays left overs and the steamed squid was just meh .... the deep fried wontons we're average but for average they were the best tasting of the 4 dishes and rice is rice. I should have tried a regular dish but I thought dim sum would be great way to see how they're doing - we used to hit them up one of the weekends in 4 back in the day when we still bothered to go all the way D/T for Dim Sum. I sure as heck wouldn't go all the way down there to them again - bummer ! They used to be top notch in Calgary ..... I hope it was just an off night. Cheers' DaveMore

We are so curious about this restaurant at it is usually been suggested in a fb group. The place is usually crowded and has a waiting time/line. The dimsum are good. The wonton soup is ok. The beef and cashew is good too. The server...sometimes hard to call and waiting time for the food to arrive or the condiments you need takes awhile. We may go back again there because their food is good. It is a bit pricey though.More

Best food we've ever had, and amazing service! We had the Wonton Soup (UNREAL), and the ginger beef was unlike any I've ever had! Everything came promptly to the table and price was great. Will definitely go back next time we visit Calgary!
