We love this place and their new location is spectacular however their prices are by far the highest I have ever paid for Chinese food anywhere in the world. I doubt I’ll go back because it’s just gouging tourists although the food is a 10/10 to be sure. Portion size of dishes is average

My husband and I dined here with our daughter after a chilly late day skate. We all had hot and sour soup on our mind to warm us up. We were promptly seated and menus, water & cutlery all arrived simultaneously - which is just the first positive reaction to our dining experience. The window table next to us then became available and we were offered to change to that table, which we did. The menu choices are extensive with the usual variety of items for an Asian restaurant. We ordered the set dinner for two that came with hot & sour soup and an extra medium soup for my daughter. The soup was exactly what we were expecting with the usual spiciness and flavor. The portion sizes of the dinner for two were perfect for the 3 of us to share. We chose the ginger beef over the chicken balls and we are glad we did. This was the best we've ever had! Crispy on the outside, tender to the bite - not tough and chewy. The flavor was more sweet than spicy but I'm sure you could order it spicier. The special fried rice was generously adorned with large size shrimp and the chicken with vegetables also had a fair portion of chicken. We were more than happy with our dining experience at the Silver Dragon Restaurant as we've had hit and miss dining experiences in Banff. The service was excellent. Highly recommend it and we will return! Note - the majority of the other diners were of Asian decent which is usually a sign of good Asian cuisine.

We did the Chinese New years buffet, it was well organized full on busy, but everything was freshly cooked, delicious, and more options than we had room for!!
The service staff even under the pressure of a full house from start to finishing hours was pleasant, helpful, and chatty when able.
We will go back under different circumstances to enjoy more of this delicious food!!

Everything was delicious- we had hot and sour soup, grilled dumplings, Singapore noodles, beef with mixed vegetables- best Chinese food we’ve had in a long time- a boatload of Chinese students who were also eating there seemed to agree- very personable waiter, Justin picked the perfect beer.
