Best Chinese Restaurant: Silver Dragon Restaurant
Established in 1966, the Silver Dragon Restaurant is renowned for preparing authentic Chinese cuisine. Although you can find some North-Americanized Chinese items on the menu, the Silver Dragon’s specialties are authentic dishes prepared by Hong Kong-trained chefs. With over 200 Chinese dishes on the menu, there’s something here for everyone. Like many Asian restaurants in Calgary, the Silver Dragon is proudly owned and operated by a local family; a lot of the contemporary Pan-Asian style comes directly from their personal collection and homegrown tastes. If you ever find yourself in Chinatown, Calgary’s Best Chinese Restaurant for another year is one you won’t want to miss.
Walking into the Silver Dragon, the ambience is unmistakable as if you walked into a restaurant in the middle of Hong Kong itself. Dine-in, take-out, get delivery – the Silver Dragon wants you to enjoy your Chinese food however you choose. They also have private dining rooms, banquet facilities and catering for special occasions. Whether you’re craving Chinese food right this second or you need a good default place to order from when you host the next movie night, remember the Silver Dragon Restaurant.
