Had a brilliant supper at Fang Fang. The chicken dumplings, beef in oyster sauce and crispy pork was very tasty. Good atmosphere and service.

To start off, we had a nice meal in a nice location. The Kung Pao Chicken and the Egg Fried Rice were quite good! We also ordered the Beef with Garlic Sauce which was had a bit too much ginger for my taste. The food was quite good though. At the end of the meal, the waiter brought our bill,... More

Every time we go to kampala we make a trip to Fang Fang Chinese Food. It's fancy, beautiful décor and delicious food. The waitstaff are very good at what they do and are prompt and knowledgable about the dishes. We like taking large groups here and they have nice private big rooms that can accommodate probably 20 or even more.... More

This was the chosen venue for my sons 13th birthday. The food was nice and I always like the decor. The pianist in the background gives it that nice touch. We didn't think the service was outstanding, but they gave my son a complimentary ice cream with a candle and sang happy birthday to him from across the room. All... More

Can't go wrong with Fang Fang. When the family say chinese it's gotta be Fang Fang in town. Avoid the Hotel one. This isn't chinese cuisine how westerners may perceive. It's very regional when it comes to chinese food in Kampala. And we've never been disappointed. The decor is a bit tired now but still we go for the food!... More

Fang Fang is one of my favorite restaurants in Kampala. The food tastes great and is of good quality. We usually eat at the outdoor restaurant at the Hotel. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is great for large groups. We usually bring groups and sit at the round table with the Lazy Susan. We order several plates of... More

As a Ugandan local, I have patronised Fang Fang very many times since way back in its hey day as the finest dining experience in Kampala. Now there are myriad other Chinese restaurants. The food is still very good, the service acceptable but the decor is quite, quite old and needs updating.

For some odd reason everyone seems to like this Chinese restaurant so I decided to try it out. I went to the branch in communication house in downtown with my sister and her friend and honestly it was the worst Chinese food I've had in my life! The chicken with cashews was salty and the chicken didn't even taste like... More

I had been several time to this restaurant in the past and the quality of the food was good, but my last two recent visits were a total disappointment, as the quality of the food has worsened dramatically. The first time I had a chicken dish, the chicken was so dry it was like eating chips. The steamed mixed vegetables... More
