Mai Tais during Happy Hour were good, strong, and reasonable. Hot & Sour Soup was very good. Egg Rolls were oily. Schezwan Beef was OK, but had way too much celery, and almost no Onion. Service was good. Decor was boring.

We have eaten many times at Sampan, always find it to be delicious and fresh, and special dishes are just that. Recent visit was just a quick stop for a cocktail and appetizer. Had a friendly bartender, excellent drink and appetizer.
