A word from FANG
Fang is the sister restaurant of wildly popular restaurant, House of Nanking. Fang embodies both modern and authentic Chinese cuisines in a fine dining setting serving traditional Chinese fare, dim sum, as well as "off the menu" innovative dishes for the adventurous. Chef Peter Fang believes that good-tasting food is universal and should not be bound by how dishes were made in the past. With Chef Peter’s trademark inventiveness and eye for quality, the menu evolves and changes based on seasonally fresh ingredients from the same local Chinatown markets Peter has visited for decades. For fresh seasonal Chinese food in an elegant and modern setting, visit Fang.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Instead of ordering from the menu, this time we decided to let the chef decide what to serve. It was a wonderful mix shrimp, beef and fish. It was easy, and truthfully, we may not have chosen these dishes."

  • "Went to this establishment on a whim with 2 friends. As we looked over the menu, our server asked us if we had been there before. When we told him we hadn't he took our menus away and said he'd take care of us. I honestly don't know what we ate (4 different dishes) but everything was quite good. Will go back."

  • "do not come to this restaurant. It was obvious that we were first timers for them and we waited a long time before somebody even took our drink order. We were ignored several times after that, as well. Unless you order directly as it is stated on the menu, I would not go here. Substitutions are not welcome. "

  • "If you want something different than traditional chinese menu you have to go here. They have very interesting dishes with lots of different ingredients. The buns filled with either beef, pork or duck made for very delicious appetizers along with steamed bok choy. We were there during happy hour so the prices for the apps were only $5 each. The entrees were excellent too. We were first in the place around 5:00 but by the time we left the place had filled up. The service was brisk with not much attention but didn't need much with the food being so perfect. Also try House of Nanking in chinatown which is a sister restuarant."

  • "Went for quick lunch.....loved the duck buns and crispy short ribs!!! Went back 36 hours later and had the same items for dinner. Ate the other nights at $$$$ restaurants and must say enjoyed Fang more!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "I was with 4 girls who all pretty much like everything. It was our first time to Fangs and we were not sure what to order. We asked the waitress what were her favorite dishes and instead of tell us she asked if she could just order for us. That was the best! We love every dish she sent out. All were perfect for sharing and still getting great portions for all 4 of us, the food can at a steady pace and not too fast. We all agreed that was the way to do it. We loved it!!"

  • "I have dined at Fang's each time in San Francisco. Excellent pot stickers with peanut sauce. Must have the sesame chicken &'the short ribs were great also"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Fang is a block from us, so convenient for walking. Our party size was 6; I do recommend a reservation for Friday or Saturday nights. The food and service were very good. The Chinese food came In family style platters and was served quickly and hot. The total for the 6 of us was under $150; hard to beat in San Francisco's SOMA district."

  • "FANG is a must-visit for me in downtown San Francisco. My sole recommendation is that you allow the chef to select your dishes. This works especially well if you're dining as a group. Every dish that was set in front of us was amazing, from sweet buns to dumplings, to an amazing course of crispy prawns in an apple glaze along with perfectly cooked whitefish. The others in my group have been talking about this place days after eating there."

  • "Fun restaurant. Good food (although a little sweet for my taste) And best of all, it didn't break the bank. :)"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Much to our surprise, this restaurant served about the best Chinese cuisine we have experienced. We are world travelled. But the biggest surprise was how everything on the menu is so very reasonably priced."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "the best way to dine at any of Peter Fang's restaurant is to order your drinks and put yourself in the hands of the staff -- let them know the courses you want, any allergies or please avoids. Then wait for the magic to happen. The staff will begin to bring out amazing food -course after course all perfectly sized for your party of two or large group. Consistently wonderful food and service!!"

  • "From start to finish the place provided horrible service. I will not be returning."

  • "Must visit when going to San Francisco. Very good place to enjoy Asian fusion"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "They push you through because they are busy! The great thing is that to speed things up they dont even wait for your order. They ask if you want them to chose for you (we said yes). They brought fantastic dishes, good selection, fast, tasty, creative, good value."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Let the chef choose for the table and you won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Each dish was flavorful - the country rice chowder being the stand out. The restaurant is tired - service on chipped plates. The wait staff seemed dazed and confused in general."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "A better space than Nanking though. It was nice to see Chef Fang again."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Staff is really helpful -- ask them to order for you, and they will not disappoint, especially when there is a big group! Food was great and flavorful, though the mixed drinks were pretty poor in quality and watered down. Ambiance was quiet, but in the lower level there were a few flies, which was a real turn-off. Overall I'd recommend mainly because of the service, but they have some improvements to make on the drinks / ambiance."

  • "If you ask Mr. Fang to order for you (and tell him of any allergies), you will get an incredible 5-course meal (not too much, dishes are light, just right) off-the-menu. And not expensive! Love this place."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "I try and go every time I am in San Francisco. Simply amazing Chinese food! Don't even look at the menu. Put yourself in Mr. Fang's hands. Every dish that he puts on the table is a revelation and he has steered us to things we would have never ordered otherwise. This time it was a delicious fish dish. Always impressed!!"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "We appreciated the proprietor's offer to order for our party. This allowed us to experience the best dishes on the menu, notably the pork buns, shrimp salad and sesame chicken. However, service was quite slow."

  • "Having met our son, we enjoyed excellent appetizers and drinks. It was a pleasant and enjoyable event."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "I had heard that Fang was amazing so a coworker and I went for lunch. Our look of uncertainty most have been noticed by the staff. They took over and told us not to worry -they made selections for us. We started with some tasty dumplings, then were served the most amazing beef sliced thin. We had to ask, it was their short ribs! We could've eatin that dish all day. The final dish was the pork buns. these were no ordinary buns, shaped more like tacos with a puffy bread shell filled with fried pork in a sweet sauce sprinkled with thinly sliced veggies. we were stuffed, it was just the right amount of food for lunch. We only wish we had more time to return for another meal! You must go and enjoy this gem of a restaurant."

  • "We were in for a trade show, which is why we happened upon Fang. While waiting for our table I chatted w/a woman who was eating at the bar. I asked her what she was eating and she told me...it looked awesome. When we sat down, a man - who happens to be Peter Fang the owner of the restaurant greeted us. He asked if we had been there before and when we said no, he said OK... I have got this... anyone have allergies or anything that they don't eat?? I don't eat meat (I do eat fish and veg) but everyone else said we eat it all... bring it on! What we had was the BEST CHINESE MEAL of my life. I live in NY, I thought I had great Chinese food. This blew me away - a must stop. House of Nanking in China town is also owned by him."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "I had never been, but chose this establishment for a reunion with dear relatives after 50 years apart. Luckily, Peter Fang himself took an interest and we put the menu in his capable hands. We never had a better Chinese dinner. Thank you Mr Fang for an extraordinary experience that made the reunion that much more memorable. Two thumbs up!!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Very good food. Peter chooses the menu for you if you don't know what to eat and would like to adventure trying dishes you have not had before. Service was fast but difficult to get their attention when you need something."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "There are so many great restaurants in San Francisco I am so sad I chose this one to take my friend for her birthday dinner. The service was rushed and the food was so so. I will never go back."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We asked for advice about the menu, explained that we are vegetarians, and the man who took our order asked whether we liked mushrooms and eggplant, and after we replied in the affirmative, he said, "I'll take care of you." And he did. There were four wonderful dishes: Mushrooms and Chinese barley; vegetable dumplings; a revelatory Chinese salad (apple, tomatoes, basil, puffed rice, cabbage); eggplant, mushrooms and tofu in a hearty sauce; and brown rice. The ambiance was simple and tasteful, soft lighting, and the service attentive. Great dining experience!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The menu isn't huge .... but if Mr. Fang comes over to your table and tells you he will take care of you, let him. Delicious dishes appeared with the right proortions of salty/sweet, light/heavy."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Fang has some of the most creative and delicious Chinese food I've ever eaten. Unfortunately, the service is no where close to the level of the food. The waiters are disorganized and inattentive. Worst of all there is almost no consistency to the flow of service. One of our entrees actually ended up arriving before our appetizers, and the table next to us (who ordered ten minutes later than we did) received their entire meal before we had even got our onion cake. Mr. Fang also famously has the habit of ordering for customers. While nearly everything on the menu is excellent, he tends to go for the pricier items and some of the specials can be a bit hit and miss. I love this restaurant, but wish that they could get their act together."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I picked this place because it looks fancy from the outside, as well as from the website. However, once inside, it proved to be a little dingy. We were among the first customers there that day, a few minutes after noon when it opened. However, the tables seemed to have a film of grease on them, one of the plates on my table had something on it (looked like a big bread crumb), and a dirty dishcloth was clearly visible on a table nearby. I wouldn't have given any of these a second thought in a more downscale, hole-in-the-wall place, but Fang is supposed to be more upscale. Most of the food was not spectacular either. Potstickers and soups were quite bland. The whitefish with 5 spices was pretty good though."

  • "They are horrible customer service. They don't pay attention to customer needs. Owner is good but waiters are horrible at attentiveness."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Delicious food but very loud and the server wasn't very attentive. I'd decimate ly go back for the food but not for a special occasion. We had stated in our reservation that it was out anniversary but they have us a terrible seat by the bar and no congratulations. A window table in the corner would have been appropriate and a mere "Congratulations" would have been nice."

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Everything feels like they are cooked to perfection, the drinks provide a nice balance of flavor. I often come here in small groups due to the taste and ambiance, and because I also know they are good at handling food allergies. This last time was the first time we went in a good sized group, about 10 of us. Taste and service was as good. We were given plenty of space to interact with each other and didn't feel rushed. Service was attentive and dishes were presented with personalized information to prevent allergic concerns and to respect food preferences. An absolute gem."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Great experience but the atmosphere is loud and crowded, not a place for a quiet dinner, but the food is quite creative and tasty, maybe a little high for Chinese in San Francisco, but pretty good value."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Although we enjoyed our food, the ambience was dreary, with dirty dishes left sitting out on the table next to us and distinctly ambivalent service. Also, the tables and chairs were distinctly tattered. This place needs to be refreshed."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Walk in with a group and the server or perhaps the owner himself will suggest a menu for you. If you're into not having to worry about picking the right item, you're in luck! The food is yummy. It's not the best Chinese food I've had but worth checking out!"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I've been here twice, and both times have come with a group of 8-12. We ask them to "bring us food", and do they ever. Each dish is wonderfully prepared, and their selection so far has been well balanced. I want to bring my family, but there aren't enough of us... maybe I need to adopt some!"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The Sesame Chicken was wonderful but T=the Shanghai soup dumplings were disappointing. The sauce was too sweet and they were heavy, not delicate. Service wasn't the best. But will try it again."
