Everyone enjoyed their meal. The vegies were fresh and lightly cooked. The shrimp and most of the chicken dishes were great. Maybe a little more curry in the chicken curry please. Good serving sizes and very reasonable price. Great service, ready on time. Thank you...More

We ordered the dinner for two, for takeout. The portions were large and it was very fresh and tasty. The wonton soup was delicious. We enjoyed the meal sensing that it had just been cooked fresh for us. Would certainly order from there again.

We ordered wonton soup, Shanghai Noodles, and a chicken dish. The noodles were coated in grease but had good flavour. The chicken dish had a big pool of grease under the food and appeared to have had processed chicken in it which tasted pretty bad....More

Given that Canadian Thanksgiving is not an easy time to fine an open restaurant, we were relieved to see Sampan's lights on! I'm glad we did as it was a perfectly adequate meal. My husband had a #4 combo and there was nothing left. I...More

Sampan on Saint John's Westside is a great Chinese food restaurant. Their combos are very large and ready in 10-15 minutes. The Won Ton soup is very good.
