If you are a restaurant scout who is always on the lookout for hip dining spots, chances are that Sampan has evaded your radar. That is because it has primarily hawked its gastronomic wares to the family crowd and an older demographic. But, you would do well to include it in your dining calendar as it combines breathtaking views of the south Delhi skyline with popular Asian fare. Perched several floors above the ground, Sampan is appointed with glitzy chandeliers, a wood accented ceiling and seats you can sink into. The menu, despite inclining towards Delhi favourites like 'Tom Yum Soup' and 'Curry Laksa', also has entries the well-heeled might go for. Regional cuisines of China such as Cantonese, Sichuan and Beijing get a mention while the Thai food here goes beyond the tried and tested to include spice-laced 'Massaman'. You would not be disappointed if ordering the 'Khao Phad' or 'Thai Style Fried Rice', which is robust in its use of aromatics. Similarly, 'Shandong Fish' is a hard-to-resist combination of stir-fried fish fillets and vegetables, swimming in oyster sauce.
