this place was a bit disappointing. the "family meal" for two seemed to focus more on quantity over quality. but i guess when you are hungry you will eat anything. maybe the family meal is not a good representation of the food there, but at least the wan-ton soup was very good.

The Sampan restaurant has great food. We usually get one of the combos to go...I think it's #3 and the cost is about $12.00 tax included. You can replace an item in the combo for more of another if you like. We have never been able to eat all of it and we are big eaters. There is always enough... More

My wife and I have been here several times. The food is always top quality, and the service is always friendly. My wife usually gets a combo, which she loves, and I often get the Curry Chicken Slice. I love it. If you like your curries on the spicy side, ask them to make it nice and hot. I also... More

My Husband and I went for a quick meal. Sampan was recommended by a friend, so we tried it out. I loved the Egg Roll and the Spring Roll (We shared). Then we ordered Beef and Broccoli with a chicken chow main. Both were tasty, hot and freshly prepared. We will be back....Oh My Yum!!!!!!!!!

Cheap and consistent food. Lunch special a great deal. Try General Taus Chicken. I like the Number 1 with dry garlic sauce on the rice. Great food for the money.

The flavor of the food is great and very nice ambiance. Will definitely go back. Not far from the motel we stayed in.

The restaurant was close to my motel, the reviews were mostly very good to excellent. It seemed like a fairly typical mini-mall chinese restaurant with a typical menu. I ordered egg rolls (recommended as home made), chicken wings, and Singapore vermicelli. The egg roll was crisp, the filling was bland and mushy. I asked for house duck sauce and hot... More

We return several times a month for their tasty Chinese dishes. Love the Dim Sum on weekends! The atmosphere is very basic but you come here for the food!
