My first visit and the far eastern fusion cuisine was excellent. I chose the hoisin lamb because it's the first time I've seen lamb on a far east menu and it was excellent.

This restaurant is in the Crowne Plaza. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the dishes served up to other tables looked good. It was my mistake to order the broccoli beef stir fry, which was a disappointment. I wouldn't order it again.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
