Lovely place, indoor seating is air-conditioned but still gives a great view of the Singapore river and CBD
Tried the pork in lettuce wraps and the beef rendang, on top of our individual rice bowls, food was great! Though rice bowls in lunch sets were more affordable
The lunch sets here are really affordable at $9.90 each
Tried the babi ponteh rice bowl this time around and loved it
I'd heard good things about The Sampan before getting there, but all expectations were exceeded the entire evening. It started with the service, which was polite, efficient, and helpful. The drinks were spectacular – especially their selection of G&Ts – and quite reasonably priced. The riverside location makes it a great place to enjoy drinks with a view. I wholly recommend it, and can't wait to go back!
Sampan does amazing gin cocktails- if you're a fan of GnTs, then this is the place to go! With outdoor seating at Boat Quay, this seems like a good place to unwind. Outside of their gin cocktails, I also tried a mango tequila cocktail which had a hint of chilli with every sip- that was hands down one of my favourite drinks. Although they don't have an extensive food menu, their pot sticker dumplings and Dou Miao is really worth the try.
We ordered their scallops and 2 large plates. They were good but we thought that the portion was quite little for 2 persons. The outdoor seating has very nice view but it was very warm due to Singapore’s weather. The outdoor seating arrangement was not ideal as the arrangement was too close to the patrons from the Japanese restaurant.
Fantastic experience, as always – enjoying great drinks and food by the river is a perfect way to wrap up a week. The staff also remembered me from my previous visit (over a month ago), which was a really nice touch!
I saw some good review on social media, so I decided to choose The Sampan for celebrating my friend's Birthday.
I have to admit I always enjoy coming here. Not the most fancy of places but I like the fusion food here at really reasonable prices and the staff are always Friendly and efficient.
