“Asian fusion”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Very tasty small plates, good wine. Atmosphere was both modern and warm.

A little noisy, but what isn't these days?

“Sampan is really as good as they say”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We went to Sampan for an early Sunday dinner. The food & service were both fabulous. We did a tasting menu, which is 7 courses. Everything was excellent. Do not miss the edamame dumplings with a hint of truffle oil or the sea bass. They add in cute little ice cream cones for dessert too.

“Great cuisine!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Great food, poor service. Just ignore cranky waitress and concentrate on taste. One of the best fried rice I've had in this town. Good choices for vegetarian dishes too. Mediocre amazingly small sorbet, the equivalent of 2 tea spoons for $3. Make sure if the both of you order the same salad they do not forget one.
