Tried Fan Tang for the first and last time. We usually give two visits before saying yes or no to anymore, but in this case one was too much. The food was edible and some even almost good, we just are not sure what it actually was. My wife ordered spring rolls and Egg drop soup. Hint to management, adding... More

I love the food here! It is made fresh, flavorful and always served hot! The portions are plentiful and the prices affordable. The staff is always friendly and willing to patiently answer questions regarding the menu. My water glass is never empty. My only "complaint" if you will is the parking, there isn't any or not enough but I guess... More

This is a very casual and laid back restaurant with affordable prices and good service. Fan Tang is our "go to" place. Consistently good. Try their Seoul dumplings, a vegan treat that even meat lovers enjoy! My hubby loves the noodle dishes and for me the Szechuan beans with tofu are delicious. Can't go wrong for lunch or dinner. Plus... More

What a find. Excellent selection, fair prices, nice portions, helpful and well-trained employees. We got two dishes for two people and took food home.

Food was okay, nothing spectacular. Service was good and prices were good. Atmosphere is very casual but comfortable. A step or two above a fast food restaurant. You give your order to the person at the desk when you enter and pay up front. The food is then brought to your table. The Hot and Sour Soup was very good,... More

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

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.

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.
