Silver Dragon Restaurant

With 56 years in business to its name, it’s safe to say Silver Dragon knows how to craft a memorable dining experience. Shrimp toasts, oyster sauce fried chicken and Peking duck are just a few of the tasty dishes you’ll find on the huge menu of Szechuan and Cantonese fare. There are also set dinners for one to 10 people and a wide selection of dim sum is available from open to close.
