We went to Fang with a group recently. Some of us were very eager to try some particular dishes such as the crispy short ribs and soup dumplings. The owner Mr Fang came to the table and, as we were expecting, basically ordered the food for all of us. His choices were excellent but he seemed mildly insulted that we... More

Though is sounds like you enjoyed your food, I'm sorry to hear our service didn't exactly impress. Chef Fang takes great pride in picking out your dishes -- it's a great honor for a chef. However, it's never his intention to make you feel like you can't choose dishes as well, and I want to extend my apologies if you... More

We made a reservation in advance, however nobody seemed to care. We were seated immediately, given sticky menus, and asked within one minute if we were ready to order. The gentleman who ( who seamed to be the owner or manager) left in a huff. Our order was late taken by a more patient waitress. We ordered appetizers and main... More

Enjoyed yet another awesome meal at Fang. As usual, Mr. Fang himself ordered our meals for us and as usual, it was incredible. Food is terrific, atmosphere is electric and prices are reasonable. Definitely one of the 'must-do' experiences in SF.

Wanting a restaurant within an easy walk of our hotel (due to my friend's recent injury which temporarily made walking difficult), I researched restaurants in the neighborhood and (lucky, lucky, lucky us) found Fang.

Make a reservation to get space . . . beef dish the best. Share a dish per person. Average $15/18 per dish. Not a lot of atmosphere.

We had a late dinner here, there were six of us. Food was quite good, with special mention to the fish, which was delicious. They were attentive and gave us indications all the time on which dishes had egg or not, since we have an egg-allergic child. The owner is quite chatty and gives good recommendations.

Three of us went to dinner and received some unexpected special treatment. The chef came over to our table, took our menus, said "I take care of you," and proceeded to bring us dish after dish after dish that were phenomenal. Highly recommend. Great food. Great service.

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.

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.
