Go for the Sushi!

Sampan is a local favorite but new owners came in a bit ago. I'm so glad they did! The sushi bar is really really good! I've gone to better reviewed places & have left missing Sampan. The shrimp tempura roll is a fave, and the crazy roll is delicious too. Go crazy & have both. Better yet, go at... read more

Food tasty and fast. Tried sushi for the first time and it was great. Best Chinese food in area. Easy to get to, right off the highway.

We did take out. They gave us the wrong order the first time and we had to go back to correct it. Not a fan of the egg rolls. The beef and broccoli was good and the combination platter had a lot of food.

OK -- maybe I am prejudiced, but I was not expecting anything all that good when friends suggested meeting at Sampan for lunch. Golly, was I wrong! I was expecting the run-of-the-mill small town Chinese restaurant, what I got was high level, gently nuanced food, excellent service, and easy prices. We were 5 people, and ordered five main dishes, several... More

We have been here several times in the past. With family and as a couple. Last night was a train wreck. Understaffed of staff under trained, not sure which. Our poor waiter. We were there for over two hours from start to finish. The bartender was trying to assist, tables sat UN bussed the whole time we were there, the... More

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.
