Our hotel recommended this place for our wedding anniversary dinner & they did not disappoint. This interior of this restaurant is v quirky and peaceful. The food comes in massive portions & the staff will recommend you order 1 starter, 1 main and 1 dessert between two (they were right). Food is of great quality and staff were friendly and attentive. We would definitely go back again.

We were recommend to go by friends who have visited before. What a fantastic atmosphere to have a lovely meal out. We were fortunate to get a table without booking and followed the recommendations from the waiter. Portion sizes are generous so split your meals and order more if required.

My wife and I are on holiday in Gran Canaria and we decided to leave our 5 star hotel tonight and go for dinner somewhere nice and the guest relations girl at our hotel recommended restaurant Samsara to us!

Well to say that she did us a favour does not do her justice.

This in all honesty is one of the best restaurants that we have ever had the pleasure of dining in. It's a fusion style restaurant and is lavishly decorated with lots of oriental ornaments with Buddha's everywhere but very tastefully done.

We were looked after primarily by a waiter called Bill but to be fair the staff are very attentive and also very knowledgeable and multilingual which is a great help.

We were alerted by our waiter that and the portion sizes are very generous and that if we shared our courses that this be be more than sufficient for us both - boy was he right.

We had samosas and breads as an appetisers and tenderloin with vegetables Penang accompanied by white rice and cous cous for main course, which was amazing! We followed that with a sharing desert of pancake filled with chocolate, meringue, cream and ice cream which came served on a huge plate with a hand painted edible picture adorned in it - a real sight to behold.

We also had a nice bottle of white wine to wash it down which was very reasonably priced.

I was almost dumbstruck when the bill arrived!!!

For both of us including bottled water and wine €61 yes 61 euros!

This was truly outstanding and we have booked again for Saturday before we go back home.

If you are planning to visit Gran Canaria anytime soon this place is a must.

Not exactly a Thai restaurant which is what you expect as the menu is quite varied but boy is the food good. Portions are suitable to share and there is plenty. Lamb tagine was fab and highly recommended. The waiters are attentive and the surroundings lend themselves to a unique experience. Give it a go, you will not be disappointed.

Best asian-fusion restaurant on the island! The place looks extraordinary and the service is awesome. We ate 3 courses and the portions were very very big. The food was delicious and unique. They mix all asian cuisines to form an amazing taste of asia. It is in my opinion a must while on gran canaria. Do not miss it!
