We ate here twice during our stay. First on a Thursday night and they were dead, second on a Sunday night and you had to wait for a table (they were even making makeshift tables!) We ordered the ckn fried rice, egg foo young, beef and broccoli, ma po tofu, ckn + veggies. Everything was delicious and tasted fresh. Our server was nice, and our previous server even came by to check up on us.
It would’ve gotten 5 stars if only they didnt charge for rice.

Took a walk through Banff Town, from Aspen Lodge over the bridge to the Silver Dragon. Probably about 15-20 minutes if you don’t stop at the shops. Was a Friday night, with no reservation but no problem - got a table straight away. I had the Szechuan Beef - good size meal with a nice amount of chilli heat. Recommended if you like it real spicy. My wife had the Singapore Noodles - definitely enough for 2 average eaters to share as a Main. We had 1 entree, 2 main meals, 1 dessert, 1 Coke + 2 Tsingtao beers = CAN$89. We gave the waiter $100 including Tip. I’ve never paid that much for 2 person Chinese, but a friend later told me that the original amount included an automatic 15% gratuity which I wasn’t made aware of and certainly didn’t see. BEWARE !!

We were a group of 6 & the meals varied in quality.
Meals to avoid would be the wantons which were effectively prawn crackers & anything described as breaded since the contents were covered in thick doughy batter.
Beef in green pepper with black bean sauce was excellent.
Overall it was a poor dining experience & we would certainly not return.

While in Banff we stopped at silver dragon we had fried wonton & combination fried rice we split the rice and still had more than we could eat. The dinner was amazing and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly, the owner ask how everything was and in our conversation she even gave us some good tips on how to cook the best rice. So if your in the mode for Chinese you can't go wrong here.

Went to the Silver Dragon last night for dinner. Although the food was good, the service leaves much to be desired. Our reservation was lost, but they did manage to find a table for our party of three. It took a few minutes for our server to take our order. We never saw him again after that. Our food arrived promptly, but we could not order drinks, get our water refilled or even get napkins because the busboys either didn’t speak English or they promptly forgot our requests after they walked away from our table. I watched other tables also experience poor customer service. One customer actually got up & got spoons for her table when none arrived with their soup. Another table was literally waving money at anyone walking by, trying to pay their bill. We tried several times to flag down any wait staff to try and send our waiter to us, but that didn’t work either. A person who we had not seen before finally arrived with our bill, which I paid. On the positive side - the Chinese food was very good - we ordered wonton soup, spring rolls, lemon chicken, ginger beef, and beef and Chinese vegetables. I know that they were quite busy - but all restaurants are during tourist season in Banff. So if you want good food, and can tolerate inattentive service, this is a good choice for you.
