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.

    great House of Nanking food but in a quiet, well run dining room. delightful for 2, but amazing for a group if you let the owner order for the table!

    I am wary of the high reviews for this restaurant. Although the staff was very attentive, the food left much to be desired. We started with the panfried shrimp wonton. The baby bay shrimp inside, mediocre taste, and floppy texture reminded us of the samples at Costco. Still hopeful that this restaurant would prove itself worthy of the excellent reviews on Open Table, we ordered the "highly recommended" (per the menu) house fried rice cooked tableside. If you are expecting a show like one you would get at that popular teppan grill chain, you will be sorely disappointed. You will be even more disappointed by the taste and texture of this dish. We each had a small portion and could not eat any more of it. The aftertaste was worse than the initial bites. Not confident that this restaurant could redeem itself, we cut our losses, paid the bill, and went down the street to enjoy a nice Italian meal. If you are looking for tasty Chinese food, I suggest you head to Chinatown and avoid FANG.

    My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the food. We especially enjoyed the pan-fried shrimp wontons and house fried rice (which is prepared at the table). The pork steamed buns and salt &amp; pepper shrimp with zucchini were also excellent. Plan on sharing each serving. We ordered each serving as we completed the previous course. Other tables ordered all items immediately and it appeared to be overwhelming when all courses arrived at the same time. The ambiance is more industrial and casual rather than fine dining. Tables are set with linen. Service is prompt but abrupt. We had an issue with a serving and the item was removed from our check without hesitation. We dined early Sunday night but as the evening progressed the restaurant became very busy. Reservations are highly recommended. Our only criticism - the beer was warm.

    I thought the food was fine, but somewhat on the bland side and not very exciting. It wasn't that it tasted bad, but more just uninspired. The type of place that if I was a at Moscone conference with people that are hesitant about ethnic foods, this would be a safe place to go too. A little on the pricey side for Asian food.

    This place doesn't honor reservations. We showed up for our reservation on time and the place was packed with no large open table in sight, which was fine. I understand that the speed of service can depend on the speed of dinners and many of the tables just weren't moving. Plus they were filming something for the Food Network so it was especially packed b/c of the cameras and crew. But we were happy to wait it out and understood that there would be a delay. The wait time really wasn't the issue. The real issue is that after they finally sat us, an the older gentleman (I believe the father of the chef) came over and told us that we had to get up b/c another group claimed to be before us. The make up of our group was very diverse. The make up of the other group was all male and mostly white. At on point the gentleman said "I have to move you b/c they are complaining" to which I responded "So you'd rather us complain than them? We're also customers and it is 30+ minutes past our reservation time." But he didn't care and we still had to get up from the table. As we we're getting up from the table, the diners at the table next to us told us that the quality of the food isn't worth it and encouraged us to go elsewhere. I was livid and didn't want to remain in the restaurant but my team was hungry and on a time crunch so they talked me into staying. We ended up splitting up our group and dining at two smaller tables and I have to say, aside from the Mongolian Beef Shortribs Wok Tossed with Cabbage etc., the food was very underwhelming. Plus, while we were finishing up, a delivery came through the restaurant and I could see on the boxes that they were dropping off a lot of premade frozen items like dumplings, eggrolls, etc. The pricing of the food is fair for what you get but nothing about this place was worth the terrible service that we received.

    The food was excellent, flavors nuanced, and the servings were generous. The best ever fried rice cooked at the table—fun and delicious. All variations on the pork belly were well rendered and superbly flavorful.

    Having read some of the reviews prior to dining at Fangs, I was really disappointed in our experience. We thought our food was pretty mediocre and overcooked. Upon arrival, we decided to use the bathrooms before we sat down. The bathrooms were filthy, especially the toilet seats. Both men and women in our group returned to the table and commented on the foul bathroom conditions. One person in our group postponed using the bathroom because of the squalid conditions. The waiter person took our order promptly and brought us our food, but never checked back with us to ask if we needed anything. We ordered 2 entrees to share: Ginger chicken and the Sesame chicken . The portion size was extremely generous. Each order could have fed 4 people. But the chicken in both dishes were badly overcooked. The vegetables in both entree dishes were very tasty. In addition to our 2 entree orders and white rice, we ordered spring rolls. The vegetarian spring rolls were quite enjoyable. The booths near the kitchen offered us some relief from the noise. Given the overall experience, we don't plan to return

    This place is totally different than it looks online. The outside windows and doors were boarded up and padlocked making it appear that it’s been shut down. About 5 min before they opened they took the boards down and inside was chaotic. Dark, cluttered, and dusty! We decided to give the place the benefit of the doubt bc the reviews of food were good. Food was just ok. Experience overall was surprising and didn’t meet expectations.

    Maybe it's a covid thing but we are constantly surprised at how early kitchens close these days. We had a family dinner arranged for 7:30PM on a Saturday night and were excited that we could get a reservation for 6 people. We were anticipating being able to eat, talk, eat some more and generally socialize. The food came quickly - extremely quickly - and all of a sudden they were boarding up the windows and telling us that kitchen was closing. Perhaps if we had started dinner at 6:30 we would have felt less rushed but as it was, we enjoyed the food but did not have a nice relaxing dinner experience.

    I love going to Fang whenever I'm in San Francisco. We just let them order the food for us and it's always great. Each dish is different and delicious. The service is always on top of things, as we finish one dish another one comes to the table. Great for large crowds or a date night. One of my favorites in the city.

    Fang has wonderful food. Last night was relatively uncrowded and quiet, so the atmosphere was nice too. But like most San Francisco restaurants, they are short-staffed, so service was slow. In fact we intended to place a take-out order midway through our sitdown meal, but we didn't see a waiter or waitress again until we were finished eating and ready for our check. This was only a minor annoyance - we enjoyed the evening, and will definitely be back.

    Lived in SF pre-pandemic for years and am in town visiting. I wanted to give my business to an "authentic" SF spot. Underwhelming is being generous when I describe our dinner date at Fang this evening. We were served a warm Sapporo, scraps of cold sesame chicken (basically just the small fried breading pieces), and cold and dry Mongolian beef with barely any sauce. We were basically shoved out the door at 8:29p. They turned off the music, turned on bright lights near us & turned off all of the lights in the kitchen, boarded up all of the outer windows and mopped the floor starting at 8:15 - while we (and two other small tables) dined. The couple closest to us was overcharged and had to get their bill corrected. Some of the staff had their to-go bags of food, their coats on, and stood and watched/waited for us to finish eating/leave. It was extremely awkward. We were there a total of 35 minutes and spent/wasted $100.00. Poor food, poor ambiance - poor everything. We will not return.

    Just about everything about this meal was a disappointment - I recommend you look elsewhere. The only “good” thing about this meal were the appetizers, but they were average at best. Even the wine was barely palatable. The big let down, though, was the mains. They were bland as anything - a piece of cardboard has more flavor. The textures were…unpleasant. And the quality of the meats seemed to be low. The service was fine, not great. We asked for water several times, but it never came. They saw that we barely touched one of our mains (the sizzling rice that has a “highly recommended” label next to it - it was awful, don’t get it) and removed it from the bill, which was nice of them. But beyond that, we felt like we were an inconvenience to the staff, despite keeping to ourselves, and other than asking for water, having limited interaction with the team. We arrived starving. We left still starving. We will never return.

    Extraordinarily good food every time. Lovely staff. Great service. Great ambience. And the food presentation is also pretty. And some dished get made tableside for an added bit of entertainment. Great for special occasions, although you may want to go much more often than that! They do currently check vaccination status. Be aware that like most businesses in the area nowadays, they must board over the storefront windows overnight. So if you go by outside or business hours and it looks boarded up, don't panic! It really is still open!
