Description: Media Leisure TestimonialHOW TO REACHTemprature: 32 C / 90 FHome> Sampan, New DelhiDiscover the true flavours of Asia at the all new SampanIt’s a sight to behold the moment you step inside Sampan at The Suryaa New Delhi. A panoramic view of Delhi shining under the stars spellbinds every visitor to this address of authentic Pan Asian cuisine in the heart of South Delhi. As you walk in you are greeted by a small cluster of tall Bamboo plants. The impressive interior of the restaurant is ready to cast its spell on you. The rich wooden texture on the walls and ceilings are highlighted by Oriental style custom crafted artifacts. Chinese letters are cleverly used as motifs at the open kitchen and the entrance door.The dim yet clever lighting adds an ethereal charm to the entire space. 3 different seating arenas, the formal table set up, the luxurious lounge seating with couches and sofas and a discrete private dining area would again amaze you with their contemporary elegance.While the ambience eases you with its warmth, the vast selection of popular and not-so-well-known culinary treasure promises an unforgettable experience. The new menu is dotted with the best from China in terms of remarkable Cantonese, bold Sichuan, traditional Mandarin, new-age Shanghai and Beijing cuisines. The South-East Asian section offers lesser known jewels from Myanmar like the delicious Monhinga, Mandalay curries and the Panthé. The Thai selection is extensive with robust Massamans, the hung lay from north and the Penang style seafood and commercial styles from Bangkok. Relish the East Asia with Vietnamese Popiah, Indonesian Sambals, Malay Rojak and the Japanese Hitoku with the universally popular Singaporean chilli crabs. The Japanese selection is an aesthetic collection of Ceviche style Sashimi, Chirashi sushi, Hina Matsuri Bentou, Tendon to a Macha-Misu. The teppan station plays a host to skilled chefs tossing anything from Foie gras, Prawn Cabrera to Uzura quails apart from the Somen and the Udons. A range of exclusive seafood like a Halibut, Black Cod, Scallops, and Blue Fin Tuna has been incorporated to occupy a pride of place.The show kitchen houses a versatile dumpling steamer to dole out scrumptious Har Gaws, Sui Mai, Bao and Tibetan momos. A duck rotisserie is now a part of the fleet to dish out a heavenly Beijing duck for the connoisseurs. A live sushi counter is another feather in the cap. To add a Delhi touch to the truly oriental fare, a dedicated page on ‘Local favourites’, a fusion of Chinese and local flavours, has been included to serve the local palate.

“Birthday party for my Grand Daughter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We recently hosted a party for 100 people at Sampan, the rooftop chinese restaurant at the Suryaa. The view from the restaurant is lovely and made for a great setting. We had chosen a menu with both Chinese-Thai food and Avadhi specialities and this was excellent, especially the galauti kebab and mutton korma. The service was warm and efficient and there was no stinginess with the pass-around snacks. We were very happy. --- Rajeev Rishi

“Consistently good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I take my 4 year old daughter here quite often for an early Sunday Lunch and Its a great place to sit and enjoy a great view with good chinese food and snacks.

The layout of the place nice and not congested.Plenty of room so that kids dont bump into things.
I am most impressed at the value for money that this place offers.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

It was one of the best experience in a restaurant, We went there to celebrate my birthday in Jan with my friends & family 8 of us, including children. Believe me we did not look at the Menu. we asked the captain to help with us, we just told him that we will not take beef & pork. Rest he took care of the menu, from starters, soups to Main course to Dessert & drinks. Service was quick, food was great, Staff was also too real interest in serving with a smile. Beautiful city view added to overall experience. had great time.

“Nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We dined here whilst staying at the Suryaa. Food was very good and seemed fair price. There were very few people in the restaurant when we dined so atmosphere was a bit subdued. Lovely views over Delhi from restaurant and also from the outside viewing area. Very nice staff
