“Brilliant”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

My family have gone to SAMs for years. The food is second to none and the restaurant is excellent if you have a big group of friends to go with. Sam wins all the healthy living awards and his food is healthy and traditional. All food is prepared to order. Thoroughly recommend!

“Just lacking something”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I have eaten here before having been recommended and was dissappointed to be honest.

Its just in need of a bit of a modern touch as it seems a bit cheap on the inside.

Sam is very friendly and will do whatever he can to help you but its lacking the high quality feel of a restaurant where the price is a little high.

The food was all very nice and we left satisfied but the place itself It could be improved.

“Sad decline”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went to Sam's Chinese restaurant after a gap of about 2 years. It is sad to report that on a Friday night there was only 6 people there. The food, décor and ambiance have all fallen away from the days when it was one of the best restaurants in Aberdeen.

I hope it comes back!
