These folks just keep pulling us back. I have tried most everything on the menu at this point and have yet to be disappointed. Pot-stickers and coffee chicken is still my go to meal, but everything else is wonderful. The service is outstanding. The prices are quite reasonable. What more could be asked for. Perfect.

And I definitely got a gluten free meal quickly! I've seriously missed good Asian food as a Celiac, and this place does not dissapoint at all! I don't remember the name of my meal, but it involved curry noodles. Very delicious. Definitely give it a go if you are in Albuquerque and wanting Asian. (Especially if you need to be... More

This restaurant occupies a small building at the corner of Carlisle and Central Avenue and has a tiny adjoining parking lot. It is an offshoot of Chow's Asian Bistro in Cottonwood Mall on the West side of the city, and shares much of the menu to be found at its sister restaurant. It is there, however, that the similarities end.... More

At this bistro you'll find a variety of Asian dishes to satisfy your palate. I've tried just about everything and I don't think there is a dish that I don't like. If your plans allow, visit the bistro during happy hour where you can get excellent prices on their appetizers. This place is always fantastic...great food served piping hot and... More

Ate here with my son for lunch. Had the Mongolian Beef and Vietnamese Rolls, both made gluten free. I enjoyed both very much. It's the only place I've found gluten free Asian food, and they have quite a few choices. The service was quick and friendly as well. All in all, a very good experience.

I love this restaurant. The food is nutritious, fresh and delicious. They have fabulous signature dishes. It is right in the Nob Hill area and has a good view of Central Avenue. The prices are reasonable and they have a club you can join to get points for every meal you buy. With those points, you get a free appetizer... More

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.
