My wife and I visited Fang on a busy Friday night. The service was excellent and the food was remarkably different from the usual Chinese menu. The ingredients were fresh and the flavorings were light and non greasy. Complex spices enhance the short ribs and...More

The food is served extremely quickly and is decent. If you are working nearby or at the museum this is an easy place to grab a quick lunch. The portions are large.

As pointed out in other reviews, the short ribs are quite tasty and deliciously tender. Definitely recommended. Other than that, the service was okay but not too attentive. I also enjoyed the steamed seafood pot (appetizer)More

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!

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.
