“An excellent albeit lavish evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

It was a last minute decision to see if we could get into Sat Bans, they are not open on a Monday evening, however we were fortunate to receive a call to say there had been a cancellation on the Tuesday evening, yay! were are in. We were welcomed at the door and shown very comforatble seating in the bar to enjoy an aperitif and make decisions on our meal ahead.
What a dining spectacle, we chose the 10 course degustation with wine match, perhaps a little too much wine by the time we had finished :-)
Every course, amuse bouche's included, were gastronomic delights.
Staff were attentive, most imformative and very pleasant.
Michelin * restaurants do offer something special, and while the bill will sting the pocket a little, its not something we do that very often.
Well done Sat Bans!!

“Amazing Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Visited Sat Bains for the fourth time and every time has been a wonderful experience, the service is excellent, and the food is amazing we had the ten course plus cheese, at the end of the evening we were invited to meet Sat Bains and he very kindly signed our menu, it was our wedding anniversary and it is one I will remember as a bit special.

“High expectations largely met”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

This was, I think, my first Michelin 2 star meal so expectations were high and, largely, met. Extremely attentive service, delicious and interesting taster menu, and well matched wines. The dishes were introduced by a charming waitress but (only negative) her accent made comprehension difficult.
Standard room was good, nice extras, and excellent hospitality tray. Some maintenance issues (I repaired the over-sink shelf but didn't bother with the leaking wc valve!) but nothing serious.
Sat's very friendly presence, and influence, was very evident from early 'til late.

“Words do not describe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

I (Shane addison) my friend (dean marsh) and our fiances (Carrie-ann muxlow and Helen heyhoe) went to sat bains Thursday 26th June and had the kitchen table. Each and everyone of us have all said it was our best night out for food we had ever had! The staff were second to none and made it feel welcoming upon belief. To make things better our chef was sat bains himself and to have such a talented chef at our service did not seem real. he spend much time with us throughout the 10 courses in which nothing was left and down to earth is an understatement. The food was exceptional and will definately be paying another visit. Sat bains restaurant has the full package! I would like to thank Rubin ,Tom, sat bains himself and the whole team. See you all again soon.

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Started our night here with a few drinks. Then we had the 10 course meal. The taste of the food was fresh! but the portions were a bit too much for 3 Asian girls. We were very full towards the end of the dinner. But we got to visit the chef in the kitchen after our meal and got an autographed menu as a souvenir! Heard the chef will be coming to Hong Kong in October, will definitely go and have a look then ~
