delicious ­čśő - Edit

The food was very delicious, the faux meat was very good. Unfortunately the food contains glutamate. The next time I will ask, if they can leave it out. I donÔÇÖt like stuff like that in my food.

Asian with a fine understanding of vegan food. - Edit

As I learned during my visits, the lady of the house is full of energy and ideas - so she started cooking vegan food for a Buddhist temple in Frankfurt and added that experience and knowledge to the concept of the Restaurant.
Go there, start with Gyoza and savour one of the main dishes (I recommend mock duck with oyster mushrooms), homemade lemonade) in a very friendly and welcoming athmosphere.
Besides the many vegan options and the great taste, the understanding of my vegan needs is the main reason why I like Sampan.

Pros: True interest for the vegan diet, authentic and tasty

Cons: parking situation

Extensive vegan menu, all-round recommended - Edit

Sampan used to be just another run-of-the-mill Asian restaurant serving large portions of unimpressive food at low prices for years. In 2015, though, management changed and brought about a new concept. Ever since then, they offer three different menus: standard, authentic Asian, and vegan.

While the portions are still large and rather inexpensive, Sampan is now seriously one of the best places to go to for vegans in Frankfurt's hip "Nordend" area: the vegan menu contains a wide variety of tofu, faux meat or purely vegetable based dishes; among them at least 20-30 main dishes. Best thing is, they all taste great. Yes, normally they use glutamate to enhance the flavor, but they will leave it out if you ask them to.

Service is fast and very friendly. Thus, a definite recommendation.

Pros: Lots of vegan choices , Large portions, Friendly

Cons: Also serves meat, Decor is not too inviting

Perfect when eating with non-vegan friends - Edit

They have three different menus: Standard, authentic asian, vegan -> Normally they ask you, which one do you need, if not, ask for the vegan one.

It's perfect, when you're open for fake meat, but there are also many dishes without it/without tofu at all. One of the staff members (the manager?) is very helpful and usually takes her time to answer your questions about the food and to explain, how it is made.

Sampan is also a good choice for lunch or dinner with non-vegan friends (mine usually are curious about the fake meat thing, but if they "need" eggs or meat, they can order something from the other non-vegan menus).

Pros: Many dishes, Nice staff, Special vegan menu
