  • Hours

Silver Dragon introduced Banff to authentic Chinese food in 1988. This family operated restaurant is in a convenient location five minutes from downtown on the road to the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. Expert chefs cook in Cantonese and Szechuan styles using fresh ingredients. The tradition of flavourful and artfully presented dishes that made Silver Dragon so popular continues.


Customers appreciate the on-site parking and mountain views from three sides at this restaurant. Cherry blossom art adorns the walls, and intricate red lamp shades and decorations hang from the ceiling. Tables for groups are available, the private room seats 20, and take-out and delivery are offered.
