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.

What a great place to eat! The food was interesting and fresh. I took a couple of clients there and we all loved our meal! It was suggested that we let the server bring us several of their choices for us and I'm glad we didn't order off the menu. It was perfect.

It was not good... not what it used to be. Now they use too much sugar in their sauces (the sweet potatoes/tofu dish had a marmalade sauce) and their other sauces are based on store bought mayonnaise.... it is too bad. It used to be a very good restaurant. They have gone lazy..... this is my second bad meal there. I think that was my last attemp.

The pics they post are deceiving. Not classy or quaint. Busy, loud, crowded. Even if you asked for good to come out in a paced fashion so that you can enjoy it it won’t. They bring it when and what order they want. I don’t know why they list appetizers, ours came out the last item of everything coming out at once. The tables around us had the same issue.
Instead of a nice dinner out all we did was eat and hurry.

Mr Fang took great care of our group! He selected the perfect variety of dishes and the right amount. The honey prawns are amazing! So was the sesame chicken. And we loved all the appetizers. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. Very reasonable prices as well. We were seated in the basement, which feels a little dungeon-like, but was fine and good for our group of 16 people. The piped music was too loud, but also not a big deal. I’ll be back for more of that great food!

This was our second occasion dining at Fang's and the food was as good as it was the first time. We always let the owner order for after explaining our preferences. The food arrives at the table quickly as soon as it is prepared and in an order which doesn't rush your dining experience. Service is excellent and the variety exceptional. Highly recommended.

The dumplings and egg roll was horribly over fried and greasy, those items that were stir-fried lacked flavor after we expressed to our server to “add some heat”!to the dish. The service was annoying, no ambiance, cleanliness was average at best. Save your money and go somewhere on Grant St in Chinatown.

Food was good, but service was terrible. Had to flag someone down to take our order, refill water and even to get our check. Dishes were never cleared from table and no one bothered to ever check on us. Food is not stellar enough to justify a return visit.

The food was good. Perhaps get it for take-out as the service was horrible. Every time I asked for something, like water or about the menu, the waiter acted like I was inconveniencing him. We didn't ask that many questions or make many requests. When I started to ask my first question, about a menu item, the waiter curtly answered and walked away. We still needed a bit of help, it was our first time there. Our food was practically thrown on the table.

Fang is a local gem, close to the convention center. The owners and waitstaff are wonderful and for for a “real” Fang experience, ask them to order for you, you won’t be disappointed! Do make a reservation. Enjoy!!

Food was good. Had the Mongolian beef and the ginger chicken. Their shao lam bao are not bad, but not enough broth inside the dumpling in my opinion. They have some duck "buns", but they just we're little taco like dishes with the shell being pork-bun material. Was weird, not great.

Service was really bad all around. From being received by the host. To being seated. To getting orders taken. And even getting more water. Really needs improvement.

Cocktails are very strong. I think that's good. But one person's drink at my table really tasted like straight up vodka. A full glass of vodka lol.

Food was good, but ambiance and service were just “ok.” On the ambiance, it’s a little crammed/some of the tables are too close together. On the latter, it’s not House of NK, but not exactly warm either. Also, all our food came at once - no pacing/not a fan of that style. Not really a date/special evening spot. We’d go back if we happen to be in the area and are hungry for casual, tasty Chinese.

The food was great, as always. But the service was a complete catastrophe. Super slow, and when a server finally showed up there was a tangible attitude. We asked for a new round of beverages 3 times over a span of 40 minutes and nothing happened. Also found an item on our bill that we had ordered but never received.

I first visited Fang maybe 7-8 years ago, when I considered it sort of the "upscale" cousin to House of Nan King, which I've enjoyed for well over 25 years. The food continues to be fantastic. Sadly, the service on my recent visit was not great; not rude or poor, just inattentive and sort of careless. For example, we had a 9pm reservation, and at about 9:45, they came by and put the chairs up on the table next to us, as if telling us it was time to leave. Also, as I looked around the restaurant, the once-fresh decor had deteriorated ever-so-slightly. It needs, if not a refresh, a deep clean.

Fortunately, the food (we had the sesame chicken and their signature short ribs, along with the Japanese pumpkin soup and the noodle pot with seafood), was amazing. Still among the best Chinese cooking I've had anywhere. Amazing flavors, textures, sauces/broths, etc. Really perfectly assembled.

The owner kept talking us into getting dishes different from what we wanted to order, by saying that you should get B instead of A. His suggested dishes didn't taste well at all and turned out to be expensive. He also misled us into ordering more than we could eat by not providing info on the size of dishes, but his expression gave it away that we ordered too much so I asked him to cut one dish and he explicitly told us he would stop our conversation there and ignored our request. In the end we couldn't finish a lot of the food and the two dishes he suggested were the ones we didn't touch much because they were bad...

This is the worst experience I have had at any restaurant. Please avoid this place if you don't want to be manipulated or waste your money.

I have lived in SF since the 90s and this was the worst food service experience I've ever had. we waited 20 minutes before a waiter came. he didn't write down our order and had to ask us to repeat the whole thing. we got charged for items we didn't order and items we ordered never came. they never picked up our menus so we had to put them on the floor when the food came to make room. they never asked us if we wanted a second drink so we just started opening beers that were in my backpack, and of course no one noticed. what a disaster. homemade noodles were quite good.

Overall Fang is still a good restaurant if you know what to order or lucky enough to get a good server to recommend. Not all servers give good recommendations. Restaurant is under staffed for busy hours. A reasonable choice if attending the convention nearby.

For starters, my middling review was for this visit in particular. This was my fourth (and may be my last) visit to Fang's. The first three times I've gone were excellent. We were well taken care of (once with 4, once with 8, one with 18) on all those occasions and the food was great.

This time however.... all the food was WAY too salty and our server was the pits. She wasn't listening when we were asking questions while considering our order. Was unhelpful in making suggestions (in fact, the other three times the server - twice it was the owner - were quite pleased&helpful in making suggestions). She brought out white rice (which we had to remind her to do after she brought all the entrees) instead of the brown rice we had ordered. When clearing she was leaning over the table and pulling dirty dishes from the other side of the table right in front of my face and proceeded to stack all the dirty dishes right next to me.

It was so bad that we actually left less than 10% tip which is SUPER unusual for me (in fact, i can't remember the last time I did such a low rate). I'm not saying I won't go back but I certainly won't be the one that recommends it.

Feels like, this past Friday, they used the wait staff from House of Nanking... their sister restaurant. That place has a reputation for busy, low-touch service but you go in their expecting in (the good, when I've been, has been excellent though)
