Have visited many times especially for their excellent shish kebobs. Love most of their appetizers but everything in the menu is very good to excellent. Service is friendly and atmposhere warm. Strongly recommended for good Turkish food.

By far one of the best food anyone can have! It's a very well maintained Turkish restaurant with great food cooked the right way! I can't explain how great this place it. All I can say is go and visit!

The pleasant setting and friendly service have made this spot one of my favorites for more than a decade now. Fresh well prepared food makes Samdan an old standby. The reasonable prices are a bonus.

OK.. Now if you have never had Turkish food, not to worry... We are talking Kebabs ,Gyros, Yogurt dishes....etc.. The food at this Restaurant in Cresskill, N.J. , only about 7 miles north of Fort Lee. was extraordinary!!... Order what you will, but take my advice... To Start : the Shepard Salad...(chopped up) for 2 or 4 or whatever, that... More

First of all, we have been going here for more than 10 years. Sometimes, we were there twice a month just because we were so hungry for quality food. Anything you order here come in a perfect plate of flavors. The best is if you go there and get the "Samdan Combination" which has 4 different kind of meat over... More

Went here on a whim and was not disappointed. Ordered my usual Turkish favorites and I have to say everything was tasty and plentiful. Service was great, busy place with lots of repeat customers known by name. Will definitely go back!

Samdan is one of the few good mid East restaurants in Bergen county. Good when you have vegetarian and meat loving people in your party since it caters to both. The bread for starters is good. We've preferred a range of appetizers - Tabouli, Baba Ganoush, Hummus, Tarama, Yaprak (Grape Leaves), Falafal - it fills you up along with the... More

We had an enjoyable meal with another couple. Food was good and place has a nice atmoshere. Prices are average for the area. Portions are ok..not all that large. We had a coupon that they would not accept. I felt that was chinsy.

I've been dining in and taking out from this restaurant for many years, and have never been disappointed - with the meal, or service. The Shepard's salad is always a must have for us, as well as the hot and spicy, but incredibly delicious acili ezme appetizer. For an entrée, we usually have kebab, but the Samdan special chicken is... More

When a colleague picked this restaurant, I was anticipating a greasy hole in the wall. Instead it was a large airy place with tables full of families and groups with big plates of food. Since it was only three of us we were tucked in the back corner by a very cold emergency exit, and the waitress tended to forget... More
