Best Indian around, just down the road from the crown plaze. All good, and the kingfisher ice beer is to die for. Great Indian food and i think they have another one in Hayes called the grapes.

I can see a few negative reviews on here however I've eaten here a few times and never had a bad meal. The Cantonese style filet of beef is my favourite. I've always had something sweet sour other times.

Disappointing and poor value for money. The curry, though quite unauthentic, bore a striking resemblance in flavour to a Knorr Curry Sauce. Poorly executed and let down the excellent service from the waiting staff

I totally agree with the other reviewers. The red curry was the absolute worst. Flavorless and more like a soup than curry. At £14 it didn't even include rice! Terrible! Was happy I ordered the edamame beans. They were edible. Next time I'll stay at the Crown Plaza.

I convinced my wife, who isn't a fan of chinese food at the best of times, to eat at Sampan's. Unfortunately, my choice was a poor one. We went for a set menu, it was terrible. The food was watery and tasteless. If you are staying at the Holiday Inn at Heathrow, I would choice a different restaurant or eat... More

I ordered a chicken noodle soup and it tasted like an MSG soup. Prices are ridiculously expensive, too.

Large menu, great food, great service! Visited whilst staying in the hotel on business we ordered the mixed starter, fried rice, vermicelli, sizzling beef, sizzling scallops & chilli beef all of which were beautiful couldn't fault it, the wait staff were very polite and attentive and very reasonably priced! Set menus were also available

Have detailed our experience at this restaurant in my review of the hotel, but this was so bad that it is worth repeating. Sampan's is described as serving Chinese/Thai cuisine. What we got was some of the worst Indian food (buffet) that I've ever had. I would like to think that we caught them on a bad night, but can... More
