The place is very cramped with an attempt to seat as many people in as less space as possible. The table we were seated at, had a table beyond, and every time people from that table had to move out or had to be served...More

Unusual, delicious Chinese food. Mr Fang found our group looking at the menu, took it away form us and said that he would choose for us and bring us the best food. This clearly works well for them as a restaurant on an extremely busy...More

I was pleasantly surprised when we went to Fang on Howard. It seemed a little bit less than what I had hoped for in the way of higher end restaurants, but the food actually was very good. We all ordered a number of different dishes...More

Not going back to Fang is an easy decision. First, the place seems none too clean; perhaps they are too busy during the day to take a few minutes and tidy things up, put on clean shirts and wqash the chop sticks. The house wine...More

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

I am not Chinese so I am not sure I can tell "true" Chinese food that one would be served in China. But I believe this is authentic as you may be able to get in that part of San Francisco!

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.
