Sampan is the only restaurant in saint John that offers AUTHENTIC Chinese food, dim sum, on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The rest in sj only offer Canadian Chinese food, things like fried rice, chicken balls, butterfly shrimp, ginger beef , wonton soup, chow Mein, low mien, sweet and sour chicken, basic Canadian Chinese. Sampan also offers these, all throughout the week. I enjoyed everything we had here, we had the shrimp roles, shrimp dumplings, chicken pot stickers, beef tendon, sticky rice, BBQ pork dumplings, been sprout noodles, Shanghai steamed dumplings and a few things I forget the name. Delicious.
