Good Asian fusion

We went there for dinner just to try it out. We had the chicken lettuce wraps and fiery dumplings for appetizers and loved them both. I highly recommend the coffee chicken main course. Overall an excellent dining experience.

After only two visits, this has become one of our favorite restaurants in Albuquerque. Everything is delicious and freshly prepared. I like the way most dishes are available with your choice of beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, or tofu. I highly recommend the Orange Peel Beef and the Sweet and Sour Beef. The restaurant has a very modern kind of industrial... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our meal at Fan Tang. I had the Spicy Shrimp ~ it really is VERY spicy, with plenty of red chilies and garlic in the dish. There were lots of nice sized shrimp in the dish, along with the brown rice (you can also order white), broccoli and a nice vinegar tasting salad. My... More

Met a friend here randomly for lunch several years back, now it is far and away my favorite place for asian food in the Albuquerque area. Their coffee chicken is astoundingly good, but everything else I have tried on the menu is excellent. The staff are top notch and friendly. As good as it gets for lunch in Nob Hill.

This is the first time I have ever been terribly disappointed with a Chinese restaurant. I saw a very good review about their Singapore Noodles. We were on our way home and got a takeout order of this dish and chose the chicken version. There were exactly 2 small pieces of chicken on top of a bunch of soggy noodles... More

We'd driven past and seen reviews of Fan Tang for quite some time and decided it was time to check it out. It's a pretty nice-looking place, so we were sort of surprised when we walked in to find a counter where you order from a board. It's one of those places where you're supposed to tip before your meal,... More

Had lunch here. Rather unassuming place. Easy parking in lot adjacent to restaurant. Order and pay at entrance. Food served by waiter/waitress when ready at your table. Wide selection of Asian fare. Easily accommodating vegan or vegetarian needs. Friendly, helpful staff. Very reasonable prices. Best of all, food was simply superb! Would love to return.

We were in the neighborhood and decided to give it a whirl. The pay at the counter is fine if you don't want another drink. The wait staff were rude from the get go. I paid with a debit card and did not add a tip because we were tipping in cash. Maybe that is why the staff were rude... More

I was very hungry and stumbled across this place. Got my food quickly and the staff was quite friendly. The food was just ok. Not much flavor, but edible and quick which was spot-on what I needed in the situation.

This is not a "fancy" restaurant - just a consistently delicious, fresh flavored selection of Chinese and other asian foods. Portion sizes are quite ample, always brought directly from kitchen so hot if they are supposed to be - and not if not! Service is always wonderfully familial - you feel welcome and well served at all times. It is... More
