We started going to this restaurant more than 30 years ago and we always loved it! However it has changed hands and has become quite run down. The food still is pretty good but this restaurant sure does need an update. It is getting quite rundown. We almost always get the Hot & Sour Sizzling Rice, Grilled Dumplings, Ginger Beef... More

My friend and I popped into this gem of a place on a week night and it was full by six o'clock. The service is friendly and informal usually with a bit of sarcasm and blunt advice thrown in. The food was fresh and authentic! Likely the best lemon chicken I have ever had. Spring rolls and a beef, vegetable... More

The Silver Inn has been a staple in my family for 30 years but sadly the restaurant has probably not been updated in that amount of time and it showing. The staff ranges from very friendly to quite indifferent and I felt kind of sad leaving the other day, as it was as if I had lost an old friend.... More

I've been going here for 32 years. It is my family's favourite Chinese food restaurant. We love the chicken and broccoli in garlic sauce as well as the Peking fish. Often we order take out and think it's great at home. It is better served hot in the restaurant. The atmosphere is more very upscale diner rather then elegant Chinese.... More

Pretty much the worst food ever. This use to be a good place, USE TO BE. There were eight of us that went there last week, the hostess was rude, the waitress was rude and the food below a one star. No one even wanted the left overs to take home and there were lots. NO ONE, that's a first... More

We have not been to this restaurant for many years - It opened about 40 years ago. The meal was very good and I would certainly go back in the near future.

The Silver Inn Restaurant are the people who created (Calgary) Ginger Beef. That's right Ginger Beef was created in this restaurant. Go there just to taste the 'original' Ginger Beef.

Even though we showed up close to closing time the food came fresh and hot. It seemed better than a lot of chinese places I have been. It was good, not cheap but better quality food. The decor is not for the pretentious. I think this is all about good quality food.
