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
  • "I wanted to like this place, I really did. I went with a large group and we were seated right away, even though the entire group had yet to arrive, which was a treat considering how strict most places in the city are about that. The menu looked fantastic, especially because it caters to vegans and those with gluten allergies. We were all set to order when the owner came over and decided he would order for us. We warned him of our restrictions and let him decide for us. As the food came out, the waiters did not tell us what any of the dishes were and when we asked, they didn't know if they were gluten free or veggie. It would have been infinitely easier to have just ordered our own dishes. Overall, the food was decent but drinks were bad."

  • "My friend recommended this restaurant. She said when you order tell the waiter "bring it on". I wasn't sure when our group of 4 ordered and asked the waitress about it. I gave her a price of what my friend spent and she ordered what she thought we would like. It was excellent. So many different varieties of food which we all loved. Fish, chicken, beef, vegetables and appetizers. Wonderful. They were left overs! The price is so reasonable! I've already told many friends about it. Will definitely go back!"

  • "Every time I come to Fang the food is as good as the last. The short ribs are my favorite dish. The staff are accommodating to food allergies/ dietary restrictions."

  • "We really enjoyed our early dinner at Fang on Monday evening. We chose some items from the Happy Hour menu. I would definitely come back for the mojito and Fang's Peking buns, as well as to try other things. The appetizers are half off for HH and they have drink specials. For our dinner we chose to ask the restaurant to surprise us with a few items. The end result was an eclectic and delicious sampling of dishes - one beef, one chicken and sauteed green beans. All were excellent and we really enjoyed our experience here and will definitely come back!"

  • "This is a lively, very popular lunch and dinner venue. Food was very good, tasty and freshly prepared. Staff was VERY busy but were attentive and service did not suffer. Wait time was reasonable. Would definitely go back when I'm in San Francisco."

  • "We have now had our niece's graduation as well as a special lunch with dear friends from Italy and their Italian friends and everyone was raving about the food. Ask for the chef's choice, you will not be disappointed."

  • "Fang is nicely located since it avoids climbing the hills in Chinatown. The portions are generous, the prices reasonable and the food is innovative. It is, however, incredibly noisy with the wait staff screaming their orders to the kitchen."

  • "First time here. I wanted something close by the Marriott Marquis for a group work dinner. Superb food, nice distance from the hotel, good choices for meat eaters and vegetarians as well. The entire group loved it and recommended that we return on the next trip."

  • "Love having a round table for a group! Family style/sharing of dishes is the way to go. Portions were too small (for a Chinese restaurant) in my opinion. Tasty food!"

  • "This is HON's slightly prettier and edgier sister. Restaurant is small has a vibrant, upbeat atmosphere. Our waitress had zero charm and could not be less interested. Don't expect to be welcomed, told about the specials, etc. We made selections based on Yelp reviews, and once she took our order, we never saw her again. But the busboys were very efficient with bringing food, clearing plates, re filling water glasses, etc. Now for the food- delicious, everything single dish was flavorful, fresh & perfectly prepared. Highly recommended the 8 Treasures salad and Five Spice fish. Only regret was not being able to try everything."

  • "I love the food here. Great, great, authentic chinese. If you are stuck at Moscone at some insufferable conference (e.g., Dreamforce) and need a way to grab a good lunch nearby, lock in a reservation via OpenTable and have at it!"

  • "I along with a work colleague were looking for a nice restaurant close to the Marriott Marquis and walked over to this gem. We started with the Pork Confit egg rolls - a bit oily but tasty-- and the special app of the day fried shrimp dumplings which were good. We shared a couple of dishes a Beef Shortrib dish with baby bok choi and chicken dish. Both were very tasty with great crisp veggies and a lot of flavor. Prices are very good for the quality of the food. We had a chance to chat with the owner's daughter who actually took our order and recommended dishes. Freshness was a theme and we enjoyed our meal and would go back."

  • "I have eaten Chinese food all over the world and I was simply not prepared to be blown away by the great food at Fang. After providing a short list of likes and dislikes and a list of food allergies, the chefs went to work to create the perfect meal. We started with shrimp dumplings that were the best I ever ate, and it only got better from there. The Wonton Soup that followed was creamy -- a bit unusual in that aspect -- but far better than any I ever had anywhere else. A portabella mushroom was magical, followed by lo mien served perfectly cooked. Next, the worlds best sesame chicken, and for dessert an apple crisp. It was like a symphony of flavor from beginning to end. And the price was also right! Don't miss Fang!"

  • "Most of our items were just ok but the steamed buns were great. If I go again I might just stick with that."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Don't know what happened, but this place has gone downhill fast. It's gotten so dirty and slow and unappealing since I first bought guests here from out of town. The hosts desk looks like a a hoarders living room, the floor and furniture is dirty, the staff was throwing around table tops and chairs like they were packing up after a Salesforce event....not very friendly, the service was an afterthought."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Delicious food! I will definitely go there again!"

  • "We were looking for a place within walking distance of our hotel in the financial district. This fit the bill. Although tiny and unaircondioned on a 90+ degree day, our server was attentive and made great recommendations. We did find a fried rice with chicken to be a bit bland, but on the whole a positive experience. "

  • "We had a group of twelve for a work dinner that included four guests from NYC and eight colleagues from SF. The dining area downstairs was ideal for our group as it provide adaquate space for a large group, our own room, very good service and great food."

  • "Loved the soup dumplings! Food was great... Got to meet owner, Kathy...was thrilled as I had read much about her, Fang and House of Nanking..."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Recommended by concierge at SF Marriott Marquis & several locals confirmed it as a good choice. As recommended by previous reviews, opted to take the recommendations of Michelle who waited on us and we were pleased. Each dish was a hit and we even reordered a round of appetizers - loved the openfaced pork buns and the beef short ribs. Can get very busy during lunch so be sure to let wait staff know if you have time constraints. I highly recommend it! The outside was rather bland. The inside especially downstairs where our group of 8 sat was reminiscent of many restaurants I see in China with tables capable of seating 10-12 comfortably. The area we had was open but had 3 call so felt semi-private and worked for business discussion. "

  • "We live 1 block from Fang and frequently take our friends for dinner there. The service and food are outstanding......and the price is right. There were 7 in our party Saturday night and the total bill was under $200; try that in San Francisco. And, we actually took food home. Fang isn't a large restaurant, so I do recommend a reservation through Open Table. Be prepared for hot, family-style dishes. Enjoy!! Dr R"

  • "Such good food. I revisit this place every time I'm in town. All appetizers are yummy. Mongolian beef and their barbecue spareribs are crazy good!"

  • "It was a decent enough lunch. Wouldn't take out of towners to wow them or anything"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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!!"

  • "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."
