Description: 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.

We went to Fang with large group, and had read in advance of the strengths of this restaurant--and some of its weaknesses from Tripadvisor. The sense we had gotten was that service was poor but the food was excellent. We discovered just the reverse. The service was rapid, perhaps too rapid, and the waiter keep piling very full dishes on... More

Everything should've been outstanding and it's disappointing to hear that wasn't the case on your visit. Rest assured, I'll be checking back with my team to see what happened here. That said, next time let us know if you aren't enjoying your meal -- we'd always love to fix it in the moment. Take care, Kathy, Chef More

Went here with a group of eight for dinner. They gave us menus but did not let us order off the menu. Rather they said they would just make us stuff based on our dietary restrictions. Indeed that was what happened. It was an adventurous meal but pretty good. Definitely some different stuff like pumpkin soup and a salad with... More

I am delighted to be looking forward to eating at Fang this week. I have been a devoted fan of the House of Nanking for years AND find Fang an even more wonderful experience. I LOVE not knowing exactly what will arrive. I have been purely delighted with Peter Fang's offerings. Am deeply hungry for Shrimp with Apples. Who would... More

Fang was busy on a Tuesday night which says a lot. It was very good. We had a large group and had a pre-ordered menu served family style. The wrapped shrimp appetizers were fabulous. For dinner we had a white fish dish, a beef dish and a chicken dish. All good. The beef was crusted, but was very flavorful. The... More

We live in an area full of Chinese restaurants and almost passed this one by -- don't make that mistake. Delicious, out of the ordinary dishes, attractively served, in a stylish space. We'll be back -- wish it was closer to home.

Service was a bit too rapid. We ordered dumpling appetizers, which were excellent, but were served at the same time as our two entrees. We felt rushed by the waitress who started dishing out portions from the serving dishes onto our plates. I did not care for the salt pepper shrimp with mushrooms. Bland. Entrees were generous in size. Restaurant... More

While I'm thrilled you enjoyed your dumplings, I'm sorry to hear you felt rushed. It's certainly not our intention and I'm checking back with my kitchen to figure out what's been happening. Take care, Kathy, Chef More

I ate there with a person who had eaten there before. He said that last time he was there, he let the owner take over and choose their meal. When we went, we did the same thing. They brought out the most amazing food. Had I just ordered off the menu, I don't think I would have been happy. I... More

The food at Fang is excellent. The staff are very friendly and made the evening more enjoyable by helping put together a custom, mulit-course meal together. Tell them the food you like and they cook to order. The open kitchen layout is nice, but when the kitchen is busy, the entire restaurant gets very hot.

As with Fang’s sister restaurant, House of Nan King, this is best enjoyed with a group of people and simply ask the staff to bring food. Everything we tried was exceptional. Couldn’t tell you what all of them were, other than, “yes, that’s beef, and that’s chicken, and that’s mushrooms, and that’s fish….” There was a shrimp dish in a... More

We were excited to try this restaurant, based on the reviews, and it was the only taste of Chinese we had planned for our trip to San Fran. Visited middle of the week at 6PM and there was only 2 or 3 other tables in use, which seemed a little strange for a location with such great reviews. The server... More
