“Awesome Chinese Food”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Definately the best chinese food in the burbs' Excellent choice of soups and starters and great clay pot rice. The deserts are not very exciting and the choices should increase. Earlier chinese tea was served as a welcome drink and this has stopped. The fortune cookies give a cheap restaurant feel. What works is the ambience and prices. Excellent Sea Facing restaurant. A meal for 2 should cost Rs. 1500. Overall a great chinese food destination.

“delectable chinese”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

i ve been a regular visitor to the restaurant,mainly because of the mouth watering preparations. ithe mouth watering sauces very finely prepared to suit the palate. the meat is very tender and juicy. the service is good and the ambience is relaxed. the burnt garlic butter fried rice and the clay pot rice are really delicious and totally recommended. crispy lamb, shinghoi chicken. must try items. it s priced high,of course,its situated in Novotel, but the preparations justify it completely.

“not as expected”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

had alot about smapan to be the best Chinese food around in Mumbai since decades, had even been there a couple of years back ..but the recent vist was pretty much not as expected.

service was fine, staff pleasing but not like the 5star trim as expected.
food very oily and not at at all up to the mark..
wasnot very crowded (since ou day of visit was a weekday)....overall very average chinese food...staff very sweet and polite.

“Wow Chinese!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We had been here for lunch with family. The ambience is good, but the food is wow. I have even been to melting pot as well, but this sampan is anytime better than melting pot regarding food, also it's more expensive than melting pot. We had ordered all vegetarian for the day but honestly no complaints for any item. Just superb. The staff here was very welcoming. A must chinese place when in mumbai. A lunch for 4 vth 1 soup,3 starters,1 rice, 1 noodles,1 vegetable with soft drinks can cost you close to 7000 INR.
