The restaurant was recommended to us last year but the appearance from outside was not very encouraging. When we reported back on our return to England our friend was very dissapointed that we had not given it a try. This time our holiday rep was gushing in it's praise confirming what our friend in England had said. We had to... More

We had tried to visit this restaurant two years ago, but had been in Maspolomas when it was closed ( annual closure for a week in April and September each year). We were delighted to get a reservation this time. Well worth booking a few days in advance to avoid disappointment. The restaurant is very oriental, numerous artefacts, small dining... More

For the 5th time we visit Samsara. Now with our friends. They visited Samsara for the first time and they were amazed. The inside is wonderful. As well as the the food. We all share 4 dishes and the desert was served on a beautiful plate. Next year we shall come again.

Came here on recommendation. Not easy the get in - I booked at least 3 weeks before the date and then had the last table. Staff are helpful but not the best. The food however is amazing! Portions are large so they recommend sharing one starter and one main - which was more than enough for us. Flavours are superb,... More

If you wanna spend a special evening, this is your place! There is so much decoration to see, that you hardly find time for a conversation. The food was very good, although the offer for vegetarians/vegans is a bit low and the kitchen/management doesn't seem to be flexible at all. The staff is a bit arrogant - but all in... More

Rarely been disappointed so much about this two week in advanced booked experience at Samsara. The entourage triggers a lot of expectations but service was poor and the food one of the worst Asian food experiences ever (and I travelled the whole world tasting Asian food varieties). They should look up what the word culinairy fusion means. What they serve... More

Hi dear Renè. Now you've explained why are you so disgusted. Our concept of serving... Well dear Renè, this is our concept since we opened more than 9 years ago. Obviously you don't must to acept it. But As you told than you've booked more than 2 weeks in advance it means you knew the restaurant (to do something as... More

Unfortunately, a great deception! The food was acceptable, the service poor, but the worst is the bill - at the end out of nowhere different extras appear and you end up paying a fortune for a meal you could have made at home in a better atmosphere. The only thing we really enjoyed were the decorations that are original and... More

Still nice food and a total mysterious, Asia feeling, experience Be aware that you can't just drop in, reservation several weeks before is needed And afterwards you have to confirm the reservation by phone 2-3days before what can be quite a challenge for reservations Thursday because they are closed the 3 days before. But it's still all the work worth

Hi dear Yanton. It's really funny than if you come from Tripadvisor you hadn't saw than most of the bad reviews are the same "They are really a bad restaurant because they've empty tables and they don't offeredt one to me" I'm really surprised than living in UK didn't know the meaning of "booked table". Let me explain to you.... More
