Delicious, fresh and authentic

Well prepared, fresh and authentic. There's something for everyone on the menu that includes amazing appetizers that should not be missed. This is well run establishment that can get crowded....but worth it. Prices are fair and the lunch special is a great deal

They have great value lunch special Monday to Saturday. Even if not during lunch hour, price is good and taste even better. At times can be crowded. I believe they do take reservations.

Great place and amazing food with outstanding service. My family eats there or takes out at least 10 times a year. Staff and owner are the best I have encountered! I would highly recommend samdan.

Last time I went, was pleased with the food and quantities, but underwhelmed by service. On this visit the food was universally bad. The food all seems to be made ahead and kept on hot tables. It was late in the evening and everything we ordered was limp and overcooked and oversalted, even the zucchini pancakes we enjoyed on a... More

More of a lunch type place to me but the place does a great dinner business as well. Great for ordering last minute take out when the party gets bigger than expected!

If you like grilled steak and Turkish gyro, this is the place. Their lamb shish kebob and adana kebob are the best. The ambiance is very elegant and the service is very good, wine list is large enough, I truly recommend this established restaurant.

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.
