We loved our experience at Fang! We had a large group and still received great service. We were asked if we'd been before and since we hadn't they suggested they bring out their best choices- it was perfect! Every dish was delicious! I imagine you can't go wrong with any of the choices. Probably best to make a reservation.

As a west coaster who eats Chinese food a lot, it takes a lot to surprise me. Fang surprised me. Inventive, simply excellent food, spiced in ways I've never tasted and beautifully presented.Every dish was extraordinary. I mean EXTRAORDINARY.

We were in town on a spring break trip. Fang had good reviews so we decided to try it. We had 2 adults and 6 teenagers. When we got there the chef came out and introduced himself. We told him one of the kids had special dietary requirements. He just said he would take care of us and took the... More

As a native Chinese, I can guarantee you, for such a price you paid for here, you will get the best value Shanghainese/Jiangzhe Chinese food. This is already a must-to-go every time I'm in downtown.

Just blocks from the cluster of museums in Soma sits this beautiful pearl of a Chinese restaurant overseen by the charming Mr. Fang and his talented chopped champion daughter. The food is exquisite. Reminds me of the early days of Shun Lee in NYC, just not so expensive. You'll recognize many dishes but the chef has changed each one for... More

took the family there recently and we were very glad we did. Service was a bit uneven but the entire staff seemed to be working very hard and it was busy and noisy. Food was better than most and some really unique dishes. We would go back.

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

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.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
