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.

Don't let the ambiance and non-friendly service get in your way of tasting some of the best "fusion" Chinese cuisine. This place is genuinely good. The food is amazing. The chef cooks with heart. If this place actually presented food in a better ambiance, they could charge double the prices and still sell out. All of their meat dishes are deliciously paired with fruits/veggies that perfect complement the flavors. This is a hidden gem in FiDi.

The very best, freshest, and most carefully prepared Chinese dishes we have had in a long time. Every one of our five dishes, from appetizers to soup to entrees tasted very different and extremely delicate and delicious. The owner helped us choose what to order and took an interest in all the diners. Service was prompt and efficient but not intrusive. Two of us were very well fed for under $100, a good price in San Francisco.

Standard Chinese food ingredients, but with a completely original execution, resulting in unique dishes. Wonderful dumplings and sauce. All outstandingly delicious. Staff was polite, but somewhat refrained in its welcome and service. Great place to have a tasty meal and still be able to easily hear what the person across the table from you is saying. Rare these days.

We had a productive meeting and delicious meal. The experience could have been better had the menu for the meal be revealed in advance. There was no query whether any of our attendees had any food allergies or restrictions. Service was slow yet it was busy. Several members of the service staff did not appear to have strong English language skills.

Very bad experience - we waited for our food for > 1hour, only a few dishes arrived with no visibility for the timeline on the next one. Eventually had to cut our losses and leave the place hungry
Rude dismissive service, we didn't even have a dedicated waiter
The food was very underwhelming too
Never going back

The food is great. Fang, the owner and chef, asked if we had any food limitations. With none, he took our menus and the surprises started. Every dish was great. I am really surprised we got in, but OpenTable got the reservation and we had a great meal.

Most dishes are wonderful. With a group of six, we asked the manager to select dishes. He listened, two vegetarians,one pescatarian, and delivered a delicious banquet. I would give Fang 5 stars, but the crispy noodles and vegetables was nice t good, and very different from past visits. Everyone loves their short ribs, but this time they were dry and shriveled.

Breaded shrimp, little bay shrimp in a soy-honey sauce, buns with portobello mushrooms, crispy and tender- just amazing dishes!

I hope Fang checks on their quality and continues serving the delicious dishes they are known for.

I really love Fang. It's a different take on Chinese, but frankly, a welcome upgrade to traditional Chinese food. I love that Mr. Fang himself is there to make suggestions. It's best to not even look at the menu and leave it up to him. What I love most is it's like going to dinner at someone's home, but while having the nice ambiance of a restaurant. Definitely, this is one of my favorite restaurants in SF. I always bring my out of town guests here!

Excellent SoMa restaurant. Food is always great, ask for a special based on your personal preferences - they always come up with fantastic surprise dish! It's usually busy so reservations are recommended. Great for groups of 5-15 as well - dishes can typically be shared and they have large tables on the lower floor. Service could be faster but overall very decent.

Mediocre food. Terrible service. Even when we specifically told them to stop bringing our food out so fast (our table was full with three dishes), they still did (brought two more). I mean seriously, how is that supposed to work logistically?

We walked in just for lunch, the four of us. The waitress handed us the menus and we started perusing. At that point, the owner, Peter Fang, came by, introduced himself, and asked us if we had any dietary restrictions. We all said no. He said that what he really likes to do is serve family style, and are we OK with that? We said sure. At that point he announced, “OK, in that case, you don’t need the menus anymore.“ We handed him the menus. After that, four amazingly delicious courses appeared on our table one by one. We also had the green tea with the jasmine rosebud in it, which was delicious. I can only tell you that the food here is absolutely amazing. And it really wasn’t very expensive given the high quality of the service and the food. None of us knew this restaurant existed, but we all agreed that we have to go back. It’s an eye-opening experience and a gastronomic delight. Don’t overlook this place!
