Description: Undeniably the number one Steakhouse in Patong, the readers of TripAdvisor have recently recognized us as the best fine dining experience in Phuket, and amongst the very best restaurants in Thailand! A classic steakhouse with elegant service, great wine selection and only the very best imported beef combining to make the perfect evening, every time! The dress code for 'smart casual' at all times. We prefer that men will wear long trousers and collared shirt, short or long sleeved, with shoes and that ladies are also suitably attired for dinner. However, we understand that we are in a hot, 'holiday' environment and we are happy to receive guests with more casual attire providing the 'smart casual' tone is maintained. Guests will not be allowed to dine if dressed in beach-wear or sports-wear. Thank you for kind consideration of our other diners.

Had an amazing meal last night. It was amazing from start to finish. They have a good wine list,My boyfriend has the steak and lobster and was very impressed well worth the money. We had three course as the food was so lovely. The service is top standard yes it's more expensive then many other places but it is so worth going and well worth the money. Would defiantly go bak.

Our yearly holiday around Christmas/New Year to Patong is spent at the wonderful Holiday Inn Resort in Patong. This review is long overdue, but thought I'd better write one before we return there on our upcoming holiday. Lucky for me, it's my birthday while we are there and my choice for birthday dinner celebrations has always been Sams Steak & Grill (within the resort). From the moment you step inside the door, you are greeted by the friendly staff. The food and service is consistently excellent. The food & wine menu is vast and when ordering steak you have choices with your sides. There are other options on the menu for those not choosing steak. Most times it's just been the 2 of us but last year we had family (adult children & partners) with us, so the 10 of us were seated in a separate dining room which accommodates large groups perfectly. The main dining area is set up well, the tables are far enough apart, has soft lighting and comfortable seats. Some items on the menu are prep right at your table so you can see the wait staff do their great work first hand. Great value when you think what you would would pay in a comparable restaurant here in Australia. They even made a special dessert for me since it was my special day and all the wait staff brought it to the table and sang HB! What a nice touch and greatly appreciated ☺️. I'm looking forward to our upcoming holiday back to the HI and enjoying another wonderful evening at SAMs with great food, fine wine and excellent service. I would say a perfect choice for Couples, Family with adult children, Friends, Business associates or even if you're dining alone. A big thank you to all the staff, you all do a great job!

Having read reviews already, my husband and I chose to dine at Sam's last night for our anniversary! It's located within the beautiful grounds of Holiday Inn resort.

WOW WOW WOW the food is absolutely amazing! The service is very friendly and we were surprised with the arrival of a chicken entree followed by an orange sorbet to cleanse our palate before our scrumptious mains arrived.

I definitely recommend Sam's beef and reef (1500bt). The Aussie beef has amazing flavour (proud to be an Aussie) and is accompanied by half of a huge lobster. The waitress flambeed the curry sauce right next to us which made great video footage! We ordered creme brûlées each for dessert which were also amazing! The hard toffee was a delight to crack :-)

Our special evening was topped off by the choc mint pops served in a dry ice bowl. We've never seen anything like it before and will recommend this restaurant to any of our friends who visit PaTong!

Thank you 100% service and food!

Tip: must be wearing shirts with sleeves. No singlets allowed however they do have shirts there to borrow if you aren't dressed appropriately for fine dining.
