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 enjoyed an early Saturday evening meal at Fang at the recommendation of friends who are artistic directors in a Yerba Buena Center venue. Lots of construction around the restaurant but we entered and found it full of patrons and our table was waiting. We had read in another review that owner/chef Mr. Fang likes to have a personal touch... More

We decided to eat here (a small group of us from work) after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. While we were trying to figure out what to order, the waitress took charge, and suggested that we let her choose for us. That saved some time, and also was kind of a nice change. She brought us different plates one after... More

This is one of the Best Chinese meals I have had. The size of the plates were great and the speed in which the meals were placed was great. We walked in and found a seat for 2 and was out in less than an hour.

I've generally come to Fang with large groups, but I have been here with only 2-3 others as well. The food here is a bit different than most Chinese restaurants. I've had a few misses, but most of the dishes are quite good. If you let the staff bring you "whatever is best tonight," you will generally get a steamed... More

You won't be disappointed with his choices - wonderful flavors; but, the prices do add up. One server helpful, the other had little English. Lovely decor. Will be back to try more items next time I'm in town.

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.
