Sams steakhouse in Patong is fine dining with drama. It represents everything I covet from eating out. The restaurant is airconditioned and extremely spacious we had privacy and lots of room. We opted to skip a starter and ordered a steak each, however before our steak arrived we were surprised by first a basket of different breads accompanied by three flavour infused butters, next we were offered a beautiful amuse bouche of chicken fried in a crispy herb coating with a subtily flavoured mayonaise and a nice garnish. Next we were offered a double melon sorbet- we had not yet even had our ordered food. The steaks were both excellent and perfectly cooked despite one being very thick and the other thinner. After this we were 'recommended' by our waitress "Pla" to try the crepe suzette and OMG it was an experience, the entire thingwas prepared by Pla at our table and the flambe was dramatic to say the least, Pla was both confident and slick but also extremely witty with her dry one-liners. After this we took another Pla recommendation which was 2 irish coffees and - if we thought the crepe was dramatic this was one better it was prepared with the style of a cocktail barman (think Tom Cruise) and ended in flashing cutlery as Pla shaped cream into balls with spoons and the ultimate delivery of flaming Kahaula poured over the glass- such an amazing specticle we were almost speechless and yet there was even more to come our 'petit fours' were balls of mint chocolate icecream covered in chocolate and presented on sticks but delivered in a crucible containing dry ice which covered our entire table with a nitrogen fog. Impressive does not begin todescribe this restaurant - its so much more I have not touched on the discrete yet attentive service or the ambiance - you might imagine that special dining this spectacular carries a heavy price tag and yet our meal including drinks was just over 3000 baht which although on the high side for Patong, in my opinion represents incredible value for money given what we recieved.
