Have visited this restaurant several times in the past two months. Once again under new ownership they are serving great food and service is excellent. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

While visiting family in New Hampshire, we went out to eat at Sampan. My husband and I liked it so much we actually went back again a couple of days later! After eating here, he finally understood why I complain that there's "no decent Chinese restaurants in the South." Their wonton soup is amazingly flavorful, and full of vegetables and... More

We've been to Sampan many times, but this was the first buffet night that sushi was included with the regular buffet. So good! A good value too.

We have been going to this place for 10 years and they were always middle of the road. But we had heard that their food got better. Not sure if it's new owners or just a new chef but the rumors are pleasantly true! The food was exceptionally good, large portions, and extra ingredients (fresh veggies) that were not fillers....

We were on our way home from visiting relatives and needed a quick bite to eat. We knew Sampan has Luncheon Specials until 3:00 daily so decided to stop. My husband ordered the Beef w/Mushrooms, Chicken Wings and Fried Rice and I had the General Tso"s Chicken, Egg Roll and Lo Mein. It's nice as they let you pick your... More

We had a very pleasant lunch..the waiter was friendly and attentive. This is under "new" management and they've added additional menu items including sushi. They've also revised their lunch menu by having a "pick one" each of appetizer, entree and choice of rice or noodles.
