I have been eating Chinese food all my life but Sampan was a very pleasant surprise. Went there a couple of days ago. Food is delicious. Very well priced. Especially the chicken dishes. The chicken is very tender and well cooked. Less expensive compared to some of the other five stars but the food is much better.

The standard of the food was lowered compared to before. The dimpling ordered was only acceptable as it was like a... More

Its a good discovery and I would like to visit it... More

We ordered suimai/dumplings steamed veg ones....supposed to be moist and succulent were dry and the covering had to be chewed like it was rubber....as if they were already prepared n frozen n then microwaved before being served ..AWFUL ! The veg claypot was the worse thing I hv ever tasted...looked like their chef had dumped the Maggi masala to flavour... More
