Winner

Silver Dragon Restaurant

For more than five decades, Calgarians have been flocking to this family-owned-and-operated restaurant for Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine. The restaurant’s daytime dim sum menu features an expansive offering of nearly 100 dishes, while the evening dim sum menu has a smaller (though equally delicious) selection. Beef dumplings, fried shrimp toast and steamed sweet cream buns are just a few of the dishes that await.
