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 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
