New Years Eve 2014-15 had to be the busiest I've ever seen this place. The five girls that were running the front desk, taking orders, answering non stop phone calls, non stop customers, had to have been running this place like a well oiled machine. I wanted to make it a point to write a review on how hard these... More

First thing I noticed when I walked in were the plants and the live vines being grown across the ceiling. Very cool. Food was very tasty. Crab Rangoons were delicious! Thank you!

The Sampan Chinese Restaurant is one of the best restaurants for miles around. Their food is top quality and the menu has plenty to choose from. The service is usually top notch and friendly. We often choose The Sampan for birthday and other celebrations. I highly recommend it.

The service here is above average - we had one person in our group who was getting picked up probably before they were done eating. We explained this to our server who brought a take-out box along with the food. The food is good Americanized Chinese and there is a wide ranges of choices. We all tried the combination plates...

While vacationing at a nearby lake, we decided to get some takeout Chinese. 15 minutes later, the food was waiting for us, nice and hot - and quite a bit of food for about $60. The staff was very friendly. We were feeding four adults and two kids. Everybody had plenty to eat and there were lots of leftovers for... More

We go there for the crab ragoon, it is the best! Their lunches are all great and well within our price range. The dining room is very clean and inviting with the plants growing accross the ceiling.

It is just your average Chinese restaurant. Prices are low, food okay, atmosphere...eh. Kind of dark inside and could use a good cleaning on the carpet.
