Description: 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! The dress code for 'smart casual' at all times. 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 providing the 'smart casual' tone is maintained. Guests will not be allowed to dine if dressed in beach-wear or sports-wear. Thank you for kind consideration of our other diners.

Had a meal at SAMs last year... Meal was very expensive for what was delivered. I would expect a steak that would melt in my mouth... It didn't. Service was of a high standard but I will not be returning as it does not provide any form of value for money

We had a sensational evening last night at Sams. We have eaten there every time we have been in Patong, and it never fails to disappoint. The staff are great, very friendly and entertaining. The decor and general setting is what you would expect in a top class restaurant. Wine choice is great and reasonably priced if you know what... More

I don't know if it is the best steak in Thailand but it is the best I have had here. It is a small pleasant restaurant with friendly efficient service. They have a good wine selection. The food is excellent as is the presentation. It is a wonderful place for a special night out.

I have recently returned from my first trip to Thailand and was blown away by this restaurant.

Although the staff were friendly but the service was not great when we visited this place. My steak was over-cooked and it was much much slimmer than the mentioned 500 grams! As a steak lover I felt really bad paying the outrageous bill for such a meal. Perhaps the chief cook was having a bad night!
