FANG Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I were staying in Union Square for a special get away weekend. We had made reservations but no need as the place was almost empty. Despite this, we were seated by a host who basically slammed the menus down on the table and walked away without a word. We waited about 10 minutes and NO ONE came over, no water, no attention at all. We watched a waiter sneeze several times directly into his open hand and continue serving food to others. We left. Can't judge the food. Would never go back.
Very disappointing. Fang had been my favorite Chinese restaurant -- always inspired, varied, interesting, fresh, tasty. We always let the owner choose our courses.
This time, however, the flavors of each dish were the same (black bean meets hoisin) and too much of it! Nothing crisp or fresh -- just run-of-the-mill gluggy stuff. Sad to lose a top choice from my SF repertoire. ☹️
I came here based on the recommendations on the Open Table site. When I entered, it was empty and there were numerous tables with dirty dishes that looked like they had been there for several hours. The service was poor. I ordered a glass of wine and went somewhere else. In the meantime, another person came in and was seated. She looked around and left the restaurant also.
I've been going to House of Nan King for years, so when I saw that Peter Had opened up a new location, I had to try it. Every bit as good and they take reservations. A wonderful experience. We never order off the menu, but rather ask Peter to just feed us. Never been disappointed.
We took some out of town relatives to Fang for dinner. It was recommended by a friend from work.
We were thrilled with the whole experience. The staff was friendly and professional. The food was unlike any Chinese food we have had before. No heavy sauces, not oily. Delicious, fresh, innovated choices.
None of us had any idea what to order. We took out chances on calamari, dumplings, eggplant with tofu, Mongolian beef and fried brown rice. We were not disappointed with any of it! The fried rice, dumplings and calamari were my favorite!!! My cousin ate every bite of the eggplant!!!
We can't wait to go back!
Based on what meats we preferred, we were given some amazing recommendations: rice noodles with duck, basil chicken with lots of veggies, Mongolian beef with a very satisfying and satiating taste.
It was a lot of food and we didn't think we were that hungry, but we couldn't stop eating!! Finally there were no leftovers to take home.
We booked a reservation through opentable to celebrate my best friends birthday. Turns out the restaurant does not take reservations as late as 9 and cancelled it. Due to the last minute notice, we weren't able to find another restaurant that we could go to celebrate my friends birthday. Utterly disappointed with opentable and fang. My very nicely planned evening was ruined.
A little apprehensive when I saw a health dept rating of 75. We had the Mei Fun with chicken and House Noodles with chicken. The chicken was bland, the Mei Fun was watery, and the House noodles tasted like spaghetti. The pork dumplings were a good appetizer. I would not recommend.
Big fan of Fang. Always a hit with out of town friends and family, too!
Be sure to get the Apple Shrimp... and, my absolute favorite, the Short Rib. Better yet, just get the family style experience and try everything. Then ask for seconds on your favorite dishes!
Awful. We had reservations at 5:45 (and another family at 5:15) and they wouldn't open the doors...with no explanation. We waited until after 6:00 and Fang's explanation when I called was that they didn't know when they were going to open. Disappointing to say the least.
We waited 45 minutes outside in the cold. We had reservations and they didn't let us into the restaurant or even tell us if they would eventually open. Many workers and the chef himself walked inside but when we asked if they would open they gave us a non-response.
We went before a performance at Yerba Buena Center and it was our first time at Fang. The hostess came by and made suggestions for our order, which was nice and we had the most delicious meal! We have 5 spice fish with brown rice and a wonderful noodle dish with shrimp. I am looking forward to going here again!
My friend and I went to Fang for an early dinner after a matinee performance at YBCA. We have been to Fang several times before and always had good food and service. This time was SO different. When we were seated our table was dirty and we had to literally flag down the server to get it cleaned. The appetizer was brought out after one of our main dishes and a side dish and the second main dish appeared only after we reminded them that we had ordered it. Overall the restaurant appeared shabby and dirty - the menus were stained and there was trash on the floor. We will not be returning.
I was surprised at how affordable the dishes were considering the ambiance reads upscale and the location is financial/tech industry.
The service was very quick and reminiscent of authentic hole in the wall ma & pop type of no nonsense no frills demeanor. This was refreshing to me, because I knew the food was going to be good. It might be jarring to other folks who are used to more flowery type of interactions.
The flavors of the food were spot-on authentic but some dishes were lukewarm. Notables to try: the XLB and Japanese pumpkin soup which both came out satisfyingly hot.
Keep Calm and let Fang handle it.
My wife and I love House of Nanking and when we found out Fang was across the street from the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and we had tickets for the ballet, it was an obvious choice for our pre show dinner. Great food as always, great location and great service. We will definitely be back.
The owner Peter Fang approached us and asked if it was our first time there. It was. He offered to select the dishes for us. Each course that was brought out was the ooohed and awwwwed over. It was simply the best Chinese food we had ever tasted. We will definitely go back again!
I arrived early (about 5:18 for a 5:30 reservation) and was seated fairly promptly. There were three other diners in the restaurant. After that it all went down hill. A carafe of tepid water was placed on the table and glasses. A menu and wine list was put on the table. When my guests arrived, we made our choices of food and waited for the waiter, and waited and waited. Other patrons were seated and their order taken promptly. Their meals arrived as we continued to wait for our waiter/waitress to return. Our order was finally taken. Brown rice with three entrees. After 20 minutes one entree arrived - no rice yet. A glass of wine was ordered, but we had to ask two or three times for it to be brought to the table. We asked a second waiter for our food and someone came and slapped a bowl of white rice on the table. We also asked twice for ice and lemon for the carafe of water. The final two entrees were delivered to our table. The restaurant was totally full and the noise level had risen substantially. We asked for the check and it arrived quite promptly. We were able to leave at 7:45 after a difficult meeting due to the noise, the lack of service and food and potable water. It was a very disappointing meal and Fang's will not be recommended.
Got the family together for a meal. I wasn't expecting too much out of this restaurant, but they really did disappoint. So-so service border lining an attitude that screamed 'Can't be bothered'. Food was just ok. Dishes were on the sweet side. Combination soup had a good lemongrass flavor, but I noticed that the one of the fish fillets still had the store sticker on it...gross. They remade the meal, but didn't bother to comp the dish. Overall, below average experience. I would pass as there are plenty of other restaurants that feature this type of cuisine.
