We have visited the restaurant only a couple times (usually get take out). It does remind you of the old time Chinese restaurants that serve you hot tea and fried noodles and sauce. Their food is good. Let's face it, Chinese food kinda tastes the same wherever you get it. They are nice people, and yes, their English may be... More

Been here twice. First time wasn't as bad as the second time around. The English language ability of the waiter was so poor that he totally brought me the wrong dish...since I was dining with someone else and we had limited time I decided to have what was served. I was extremely disappointed. The egg roll wasn't bad, but it... More

We visited Sam's about 10 years ago and ate from the steam table. None of us liked it. Iacked freshness. Here it is 10 years later and I read some positive reviews so we gave it another try . So yummy! We loved the pan fried dumplings, and the wonton soup. My husband and son like the General Tso's chicken.

If you're looking for a really good Chinese Restaurant, this is the right place. We have been to a few different Chinese Restaurants in the area of Saratoga county but this has been the best. The taste is excellent and the staff are really nice. We have only had take out but they do have a nice bar and an... More

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant. The food is great whether taking out, or dining in. Generous portions, great prices, wonderful service. This restaurant has the ideal atmosphere for celebrating a special occasion, having a quick lunch, or just a leisurely dining experience. Appropriate for large gathering, family dining, or intimate night out. The owners are warm and friendly also.... More

We visited Sam's in February and it was really good... but went again in June and it was not up to par. The ribs were fatty and tough, and the service was slow. The best thing this visit was the egg rolls. My husband disliked it enough to say he won't go back. Prices are very reasonable though!

First time there last week. Wonton Soup was salty, the wontons were huge & tough. I ordered boneless ribs & fried rice. The boneless ribs were fatty & tough, the "fried" rice wasn't even fried, just colored yellow with some bean sprouts tucked in & some pieces of roast pork that looked & felt like they were 2 weeks old...
