Dear Keith N. Thank you for taking the time to review Sampans. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. If the chilli beef was chewy, we would have replaced it if you had let us know at the time....More

Description
Sampans restaurant brings you the very best Pan-Asian cuisine with a collection of dishes to suit all tastes. We also have a great selection of desserts and teas that have been carefully selected to offer you the best Far Eastern culinary experience. I grew up in Thailand and spent my childhood in my mother's kitchen watching, learning and experimenting. The wonderful aromas created when fresh ingredients from our garden were crushed in the pestle and mortar is one of my earliest memories and greatest inspirations. My love for Asian food has led me to master both Thai and Chinese cuisine with a sense of balance and harmony that defines my cooking. My background has inspired me to create my own fusion of Sampans dishes - look out for these on the menu. Dai Rattiya Naughton, Head Chef
