Amazing food

Had lovely food at this place. Went first on a Thursday and the food was so good we went back on the Saturday. We were initially told that no tables were available and then the waiter recognised us and said he would fit us in. It was a lovely gesture but in hindsight we wish he hadn't as we... read more

My wife and I had a meal recently at the sampan in Blairgowrie where after not being there for about 18 months for various reasons we thought we would give them another chance as it used to be a very good restaurant but had 3 bad experiences in a row. as on a previous visit we waited about 10 mins...

While the food is actually quite good I have found the service pathetic. I've ate here a few times and the service has always been slow but on this occasion it was so bad we walked out. The restaurant was quite quiet and we sat for 20 minutes without even a drink order taken, while watching the staff chat at... More

I see people say the service is slow: don't you distrust a restaurant that produces the food in five minutes flat as if it came straight out of the freezer - or even a tin?? The taste is what counts, for me anyway, and the food here tastes really special. This week I made another 40 mile round trip just... More

Enjoyable evening, average meal, odd tasting dipping sauce with our starters extremely sweet, lamb & chicken overcooked. Table cloth marked. Toilets icy cold.

We've been ordering food from Sampan for many years and it's always excellent. Even the really spicy dishes have lots of flavour rather than just being hot. Staff are always pleasant and helpful.

Visited and ate here one weekend evening. Basically they need to decide if they are serving diners or whether they are running a take-away as it appears they are not able to cope with doing both. Very slow at taking order. and then 90 minutes to receive food!!! yet take away food leaving the kitchen and being handed over to... More

Sampan was very busy when we arrived without a reservation but they still managed to give us a table. Great!

Still the best Indian Restaurant around this area. Service can be rather slow but this is due to the number of carry outs ordered. Love the onion bhajees and chicken tikka massala. Great choice on menu.
