Description: Patong Beach is full of great new places to eat and yet, with so many choices, we sometimes yearn for a bit of history; a reputation. With over 20 years of legendary dining, this is where Sam's comes in. Back in the 90's, a bright young chef from Patong named Samrit (Thai translation: "successful"), went on a journey to discover the perfect steak. His travels took him to New York where he learned how to choose the best cuts by look and feel alone, how to season, to marinate and how to grill to perfection. In the New York kitchen where he trained, Samrit became affectionately known as Siam Sam; a grill master admired for his passion for great meats. Sam returned to his home town Patong Beach in 1995 and established Sam's Steaks & Grill. The rest is history... Enjoy prime cut steaks and seafood, grilled to perfection, and the magical theatre of our tableside flambe menu. Every meal finishes with Sam's sensational Mint Chocolate Volcano! What happened to Sam? Well, he achieved his dream and disappeared into the ocean sunset, but come see us; we still proudly carry on his mastery of the grill! Sam's Steaks & Grill; a dining legacy Undeniably the number one Steakhouse in Patong, the readers of TripAdvisor have recently recognized us as the best fine dining experience in Phuket, and amongst the very best restaurants in Thailand! A classic steakhouse with elegant service, great wine selection and only the very best imported beef combining to make the perfect evening, every time! We prefer that men will wear long trousers and collared shirt, short or long sleeved, with shoes and that ladies are also suitably attired for dinner. However, we understand that we are in a hot, 'holiday' environment and we are happy to receive guests with more casual attire however, guests will not be allowed to dine if dressed in beach-wear or sports colors. Thank you for kind consideration of our other diners.

The best steak ever with fantastic service to match. We loved this place so much we went back twice during our 7 night stay in Phuket. Everything was amazing, including the lovely team of people working there.

The place is very classy and the staff was so welcoming. The best part was the food and all the extra side courses they give in between. The steak was one of the best i've ever had and we also enjoyed the wine and the desserts. Money well spent!

We ate here on our last night at the Holiday Inn. The ambiance, the service, the complimentary tasters, and finally the succulent steaks, all top notch! Nothing left to be desired. And the complimentary dessert, a magical treat for kids and adults alike.

I convinced my group of 9 friends to be a little extravagant and venture out of budget to try this highly recommended steak restaurant - was it worth it! A few of us ordered the chateaubriand to share and it was amongst the best I've ever had. Service was excellent.

Angus steak was immense, best steak I've had in a long time and was cooked to perfection. Lots of nice little additions came with the meal also. Sushi, sorbet, chocolate at the end all made for a great evening. If you are in Phuket and you appreciate what steak should taste like then you must come here.
