Sampan is our favourite restaurant . We have been visiting this when this property was franchised to Holiday Inn . Now it is franchised to Novotel An Accor Group . Lovely food . Excellent service with an extra ordinary ambience . My suggestion A must visitbig you are in Mumbai and in the suburbs

Went back to Sampan after a long time and was shocked to see the level of service . The gentleman attending to us was all of 18 years old with a smiley face but no experience whatsoever. Kept forgetting our order at various stages and there was tremendous delay in everything even though the restaurant was empty. Stuff which was... More

Excellent food. Aman was excellent. The food has good quantity (unlike other five stars). This is why I feel it is better than other such restaurants in 5 star hotels. A bit expensive but overall excellent.

Decor was nice but, in places, seemed a bit shabby. That didn't detract from the food, however. We only tried two dishes - a chicken steamed roll ( sort of like a long dim sum ) in gravy ( I've eaten dimsum worldwide but never had anything like this ) and a delicious seafood hot pot ( which could have...

We remembered this restaurant from an earlier occasion - when we were in Juhu area. As the restaurant is situated in Novotel Hotel we believed that we would have no difficulty finding good food at 11 pm - after our Movie. Well - we just about managed - as the last orders in this restaurant are taken until 11.30 pm!... More

Novotel for me is like my second home.This review is for my another favourite outlet 'Sampan', this review has been pending since a while now. I was here on the weekend to satisfy my Chinese food craving. Arrived for lunch, we headed straight to the outlet after reaching Novotel. We were greeted & welcomed by Shivangi who is their restaurant... More
