Surprisingly good food for an airport hotel. Good choice and whilst expensive (bearing in mind it is an airport so expect it to be more than high street prices) it is comparable with bar meal prices in the other Manchester airport hotels, the standard was...More

Nice enough meal - however 4 different servers is a bit bizarre. Tempura Prawns, 5 large king prawns in a perfect light tempur batter, followed by special chow mein which was very nice but way too salty.. Should come with a salt content warning !...More

We have visited the restaurant before and it was good but this visit was excellent. Really fresh and tasty authentic food and exceptional service. For an airport hotel restaurant this is outstanding food and well worth a try.

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 Chumphon, South Thailand and was fascinate by the sights and aroma of cooking from early childhood. I would help my mother in the kitchen, learning about the fresh herbs and spices that use in Asian cooking. My passion for food led me to travel extensively across the Asian continent to China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Japan. During my journeys I worked in restaurants, learning my craft and fusing the foods of the various cultures to bring an authentic taste of the Far East to my style of cooking. These skills are reflected in creating Sampans menu. I hope you enjoy your dinning experience with us. Boonta English and Team
