I took several clients and friends together to Sampan, since it was within easy walking distance of our hotel and had great reviews. We all really enjoyed it!
The atmosphere is Asian/chic and very trendy, but still comfortable.
The food was outstanding. We opted to do the 7 course tasting, and every dish was delicious. Even though it began to look like the 7 courses would not be sufficient, we found ourselves being filled by the final noodle/rice dishes without any problem. If I were to go again, I might focus more on the other dishes, instead, even if that might cost more in the end. The appetizers/hot/cold dishes were spectacular, and I'd definitely enjoy trying more!
Service was also very friendly and helpful. Our server was a delightfully tart young woman who I definitely played with and teased a bit, and she couldn't have been more fun to boot.
All in all, a big win--and a new regular spot for me to visit when I'm in Philadelphia. Well done!
