Nice combination of Chinese and Sushi in better than average atmosphere

We came across Sambi-Canton when we had a taste for Asian food. The restaurant is nicely decorated and we felt very comfortable bringing our kids. The menu had a nice mix of sushi and Chinese offerings which satisfied all palettes at our table. A nice gem in the heart of Steamboat Springs!

The sushi rolls we ordered were prepared perfectly. Really fresh. The noodles and rice dishes were good.... Needed a little more flavor or spice. Stick to the sushi dishes for sure! And they are affordable!

I love this place. Great food, fair price, super service! The Sambi Roll is incredible, Vicky is legendary, and my Chinese friend thinks its food is more authentic than most American Chinese restaurants (and he's quite picky...)

The food was very bland. The "spicy" Kung Pao Chicken was the same spice level as the Beef lo Mein and the Beef Peanut Curry. They really all tasted the same. The vegetables in the dishes looked like they were left over from the lunch service (we ordered right at 5:00 pm when they opened for dinner). The dumplings and... More

Even though we arrived just a few minutes before the end of their lunch hours, we were treated like we were their first customers. Vickie was an exceptionally entertaining server. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. There are many good restaurants in Steamboat...this is one of them.

This restaurant works for adults as well as children. Our girls love to return for the sesame chicken and we enjoy the handmade sushi. Although the chef prefers not to do special order sushi, has was kind enough to work with our requests. The fish was fresh and the flavors very good. Service was exceptional and we were sat immediately... More
