Chinese
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.

As much as I enjoyed mr fangs recommendations to set the meals for us, he ordered way too many plates for us, party of 3. The bill obviously reflected that which we were very disappointed in. It would have been nice if he checked in with us to make sure not only if we like the food but make sure the portions are correct. We’ve not only wasted money but also wasted so much food, which is a shame because they were good. Service overall could use a lot of work as we had to wait for our reserved table, never gotten our drinks refilled and had to flag down and deliver our bill to your staff so that we could get out of there. Food was great but everything else was not.

Not sure what’s changed since ive been here last.. not sure if Mr Fang was having a bad day... not sure if all his staff is new but almost everything about this visit was not good. We came in when it wasn’t busy. I knew it was going to get busy in a few minutes so I wanted to get our order in but Mr. Fang lectured me that my guests weren’t there yet (they were outside finding parking) and that it only takes a few minutes for the orders come out. Once our guests came in, I couldn’t get anyone to take our order for a full 30 minutes. He acted like we were annoying him while he took our order and he left in the middle of taking the order. This is not the same person I remember when we ate here last. I could hear him verbally reprimanding many of his staff throughout the night. Other than that, the food was ok... this experience definitely removes this restaurant from my recommend to friends list as it was an embarrassment to our guests.

The food was nonpareil, but some of the appointments were the worse for wear and tear. The hardcover menus dated to the Ming Dynasty; the covers were literally taped together, and the prices were handwritten beside crossed out earlier iterations. Not a good look -- which gave us pause to reconsider ordering. But we were glad we stayed.

Great meal with friends in the downstairs section which was quieter, and cozier than upstairs. Flavors are unique and refined, each dish with a distinct subtlety. The owner saw our large group of eight and took care of us without us even having to look at the menu. We had a chicken dish which you served yourself on a crisped rice ‘cookie’, very good. Then sautéed eggplant. A fantastic fish dish, the favorite of the table, was followed by a crispy beef dish. They also included a shrimp dish and of course, I almost forgot, the fresh pork bun starter, which was very good as well. Everything was excellently prepared. They even served a fried rice dish that was made at the table with a fresh omelette mixed in right before being served. The only knock on the food was that the beef dish, which was delicious btw, was slightly over cooked.

Lunch on Friday afternoon was very busy, noisy, and smokey. We were seated immediately ordered quickly. The smoke coming from the kitchen was really bad when we first arrived, but lessened as lunch progressed. The pork confit eggrolls were really spring rolls and the confit was mushy and the whole thing drowned in a ton of a very tasty mustard sauce. Really not good. Happily this was the only misstep in an otherwise great lunch. The Eight Treasure salad was really vibrant, refreshing and crunchy. The salt and pepper fried fish with zucchini was hot, crispy, peppery. Yum. Shanghai soup dumplings also great.

We loved Fang! The food is delicious - we walked in, had no idea what to order, and the owner took care of us without another word (beyond asking any food allergies we might have). Then the food deluge began.

First off, it was all great. We're in the middle of a Chinese kick, but thought the flavor and substance of the dishes were above a lot of the fancier places we've been recently.

Service was fast and attentive - our interactions were efficient bordering on brisk, which was perfect since we were starving when we got there.

Was in town for a meeting at the Moscone Center and went out for a later dinner with a friend. With a recommendation from another colleague, we went to Fang. We were told that is we went there with a group of folks, Mr. Fang himself could pick a fabulous meal for us. Since we were just two, we were looking at the menu and trying to figure out what to get. Mr. Fang noticed us and came over and asked us if he could come up with what we should eat. We eagerly agreed and he came up a with a fabulous menu. We had the house special beef, a fabulous seafood soup, pork buns and the house special fried rice. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Would definitely come back to eat.

If you book a reservation make sure that it’s not too late because service and enthusiasm declines closer to closing. I had a party of 9 people for a birthday and it was apparent that our server did not have a lot patience for our group and rushed through the meal. The food was good which somewhat made up for our lack of service. Overall, would go again for the food and smaller groups.

So disappointing. I made reservation for 15, appreciate the private space. We sat down and food just started coming. There was no communication (they hardly spoke English) about a fixed menu. They brought food out as if we were speed eating. It was like Panda Express. Gross. To boot it was $40 p/p plus appetizers. So it came to $1150 for that. I was entertaining customers and everyone was pit but I was so embarrassed.

I made reservations 24 hours in advance asking that they seat us near a window and away from the kitchen and bathrooms. They sat us next to the kitchen and bathrooms-no window. We waited 20 minutes and a waitress showed up and put a karafe of water on our table, holding her hand over the opening and made no eye contact and said nothing. Another 20 minutes of waiting and they take our order. They got spooked by the diners in our party with food allergies. They messed up the order. They forgot our drink orders and part of our food order-despite asking twice. One of the diners at our table got sick (MSG). The bathrooms are FILTHY-dirty floors, overflowing trash cans, the soap dispenser is broken so the pump on the pump soap is black. I wish we could give reviews with zero stars because giving Fang one star on any rating category is a star too much. Ew!!!! Don’t go to this restaurant.
