This restaurant easily accommodated a party of 12, high chairs too. Sitting was adequate for the big and/or tall - no arms on chairs, wide enough table people weren't playing footsie and kicking each other. Service was prompt and very friendly. We asked for a copy of the authentic as well as American menu. The Hong Kong crispy chicken was out of this world - on an equal footing with Peking Duck House in Manhattan. Salt and Pepper pork chops were also fantastic and a great choice for the low carb crowd - seasoned and grilled meat without buckets of sticky sauce. From the American Chinese menu the potstickers get 'the best in the valley' from me. Crisp, not soggy. We had fried rice, lo mein and sweet and sour pork as well - all delicious. This a great place to meet friends or colleagues for lunch. My guess is these skilled chefs could accommodate any food restriction with ease without sacrificing flavor.

When you are in Phoenix AZ trying to find Chinese food, you know you most likely end up being disappointed. We got lucky at this place. It's run by a Cantonese family, offering surprise dishes such as Salt water duck, Chinese broccoli, seafood tofu claypot. Rice is kind of dry and not of good quality, portion is big for half duck. Glad to find this place kind of out of no where.

There is nothing fancy about Silver Dragon. There are no great art works, plush seating, curtains, what-nots. There is simply a welcoming family with smiles and eagerness to serve you wonderful Chinese food in the restaurant or to take out. The best recommendation of the cuisine is that almost every day at lunch time there will be gatherings of Chinese gentlemen and families, along with a mix of whiter folks who love good food.
The food is what it is about. And the food is fresh. The vegetables are well cooked and still crisp. They tell you that they have not been sitting in refrigeration for ages. Meats and sea foods are ready to be eaten as well. The portions cover the plates.
Taken home as carry out the amount of food in those traditional paper containers is more than enough for two with moderate appetites. One eater is well satisfied.
For an outsider, the hours seem restricted. But the family explains that their closing at 5:00 p.m. was motivated by people not coming later in the day. Six hours a day, six days a week are plenty of time to be at Silver Dragon and enjoy. (Closed on Wednesday)

Fabulous food. Look at the Chinese menu in English in addition to their regular American menu. This is where you will find the true gems. Their dumpling soup is a treasure to the palate. Shrimp and lobster sauce is outstanding as is their French-style filet. Can't wait to visit again. Not fancy inside but wow what great food. Closes at 5 pm and Wednesdays is the only downer!

They gave us the American menu at first but my husband asked to see the Chinese menu. We ordered items off of each. The chicken corn soup was delicious. All four of us liked our entrees and the portions were large. They were willing to leave out items we didn't want and prepared everything correctly. It is very plain decor inside and the parking lot is small. Don't park next door at Filiberto's or your car will be towed. We did not know this until we saw the sign on Silver Dragon's door. There wasn't any sign on Filiberto's and we parked there, then had to go back and move our car. This is a good choice for traditional Chinese food or the "Americanized" Chinese food.
