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.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The owner made several suggestions on dishes for our group. We were not disappointed the food was excellent and so was the service. When in san francisco this is a must place to eat!

Fang is listed as one of the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Not in Chinatown (which has its own top offers), but in SoMa, near the Moscone Convention Center. Fang offers dishes which are authentic Chinese cuisine, full of flavor, and served in an artistic style. Very reasonable prices and a step above some of the Chinatown no-frills restaurants.

Recommended by a friend, we had been expecting a smarter slicker restaurant. But it felt we were in a fairly trad and basic Chinese. Service was brusque if efficient, and fast. There was no real attempt to engage us. And was it wrong to assume appetisers would come first ahead of mains? One even came after. And the check arrived... More

Good restaurant, but neither the quality nor the kindness of his brother´s restaurant. Good option if you are in a hurry and you dont have time to get to Kearny Street!

STRONGLY ADVISED AGAINST. DO NOT BE TEMPTED BY THE GOOD REVIEWS. I do not like writing bad reviews, but this one really earned it. I went here hoping for a great meal and was extremely disappointed to the say the least. The service was absolutely abysmal. The waiter, named Mr. Fang (presumably the owner) 'ordered' for us.

This was the biggest disappointment of our family SF trip. You hope to get great Asian Food in SF, and this is not the place to do so. Our waiter wanted to order for us.

I will admit to being a "snob" when it comes to Asian food. I am not Asian but I grew up in NYC and I think I had the best of the best Asian food available in the US. So, I often am a bit leery about trying Chinese restaurants that have not been recommended to me. Nevertheless, a colleague... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
