I've been in before and the food was mediocre and service wasn't bad. This time around my experience was terrible! The quality of food has gone way down. It's as if the kitchen staff doesn't care at all. The restaurant seems to have trouble keeping staff and never has enough employees. Lunch is always terrible because as a customer you... More

I walked into Sambi on a Friday night when I couldn't find a single seat anywhere else in Steamboat. They were very busy but were happy to seat me. That day one of their two waitresses had quit, leaving Vicki as the only waitress throughout both lunch and dinner. Regardless, she made everyone in the restaurant comfortable and quickly served...

I asked the front desk at my motel which restaurants delivered and she recommended Sambi. I barely placed the order 25 minutes before a knock on the door, it was quick and delicious. The fresh spring rolls were huge and healthy. The drunken noodles not over spiced. The pan fried dumplings perfect. Yum!

On previous trips to steamboat I was not aware of this place. So glad to have remedied that. Had an outstanding peanut curry. Super friendly staff and great value!

Food was delicious, fast and reasonably priced. Our waitress Vicci was funny and very personable. There are several chinese places in steamboat, I have been to all of them. Not a bad one on the list but Sambi is the best.

Tired of waiting and waiting for a table elsewhere, we called to see about their wait time. No wait! The whole family (4 adults, two teens, and two kids) loved it. Great service and we had no leftovers.

We ordered delivery from this place twice and all 5 of us enjoyed our selections. Glad they delivered since we were tired by evening.

After being thoroughly disappointed with Noodles & More Saigon Cafe, my family and I went to Sambi Cafe as an alternative. We noticed an immediate improvement in service compared to the Noodles & More. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive and got our order perfectly. We had to split the bill and she did it without complaint. The food... More

We tried because of the good ratings. Service was really quick. However, the food quality wasn't very great. We've had better fast food/carry out Chinese. The sushi was about equal to grocery store pre-made quality.

This restaurant is relatively new. We visited in March 2011. We overheard the waiter mention to a patron that it has been open 4 months.
