Right from the round table seating to the well informed waiters, to the fortune cookies served in the end, everything was oriental to the core. Now obviously there was more variety in non vegetarian section of the menu, that really didnt matter for us vegetarians.To begin with the veg wanton soup is a total must have. Since it was our...

On my various visits to Mumbai, I always stay at the NOVOTEL, Juhu Beach. The day I check-in, it is mandatory to eat at the hotel's Chinese restaurent, Sampan, or should I say that my feet automatically turn in the direction of Sampan. The Chicken Manchow Soup is a must as it is delicious. I generally follow it up with... More

We were told that no reservations could be made after 8:30pm. 6 of us arrived at 9pm and we were told there were no tables available even though there were at least 2 open tables. We were told that those were reserved... when I asked about the... More

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...
