It offers great food, service and ambiance! The taste is very nice and so is the presentation... One can spend a quiet evening with family/ friends and enjoy the warm service rendered by the well groomed staff... From the interiors to the food to the fortune cookie everything is bang on traditional! They have succeeded in maintaining the consistency of... More

I have vivid memories of SAMPAN @ The Holiday Inn from the 80's & 90's Went there for dinner a few night ago and it was a very nostalgic dinner --- food is still good but the interiors need a bit of spit & polish

Ordered the chicken dim... More

We used to visit this place frequently years ago when the hotel was Holiday Inn and loved the food. After Novotel took over this was our first visit and I have to say that they have maintained their quality standards. The tables are more spaced out now unlike earlier when it was a little cramped. Service is surprisingly quick. Nice... More

One of the older Chinese restaurants in Mumbai with a great view, old word decor, Indian chinese, if your palette has graduated to the real thing then you maybe in for little disappointment, having said that generous quantity and decent service. Looks like lot of regular patrons dine here,
