Silver Dragon

Silver Dragon has some of the highest quality Chinese food I have had in Calgary. It is definitely one of the Best Calgary Dim Sum Restaurants there is, and is well worth a visit with the family on the weekend.

Silver Dragon is a very large restaurant with a decent table turnover and can seat very large groups. Be prepared to wait a short while on weekends since it’s almost always busy during dim sum hours, and for good reason! Mmmm… my mouth is watering just thinking of their dim sum.
