Silver Dragon

In 1988, famous Silver Dragon restaurant in Chinatown of Calgary opened a second location in the mountains bringing authentic Chinese cuisine to Banff. Expert chefs cook in Cantonese and Szechuan styles using fresh ingredients. Flavourful and attractively presented dishes include popular stir fried garden vegetables, ginger beef, steamed fish, Peking duck and Szechuan fish in spicy broth. The restaurant is fully licensed and offers a great Rocky Mountain view. Their patio is open in summer. Groups are accommodated at large round tables, and take-out and delivery are available.
