    Best Chinese food in SF!! Let Chef Fang order for you - it's insanely good. If you're a menu orderer though, I recommend the peking buns, onion cake, short ribs, pea shoot salad, & white fish

    Man this place is the gem! It turned out Chef Fang is also from Shanghai and he just decided to order everything for us. Everything was incredible and creatively tasty! Strongly recommend this place!

    My favorite Chinese spot in SF! The must try's are the Nanking Sesame Chicken, Mongolian Beef Tower and the House Fried Rice. If you're in a large group, have the chef choose your meal.

    great vegetarian options - the bok choy starter and the housemade noodles are a great pair. and if you're staying at the W, you won't even have to cross the street to come here!

    White River Fish Soup is exceptional - a great comfort soup to start a meal. The short ribs has amazing melt in your mouth texture. It's nice to have Peter order for you. Just sit there & enjoy!

    It felt strange when the owner took out a menu from our hands, and told to forget about it, he is a chef. I guess it seemed charming to other people, but we knew exactly what we wanted. Food was great

    Chef Peter Fang asked, "Do you know what you'll be having tonight?" I replied back with, "we'll have whatever you recommend!" His eye lit up and he took our menus away. The best 10-course dinner ever!

    If it's your first time here and Peter asks if he should take care of your culinary quest, say yes. You won't be disappointed. And it's not too pricey either.

    Second visit, the chef recognized us. Said not to worry about ordering, he would take care of us. He sent out delicious buns, veggie dumplings, pumpkin soup and the most tender, flavorful beef dish <3

    Yes. Agree. Let the owner decide what u should eat. Amazing, creative dishes. Portobello mushrooms w tarragon & barley so unexpected. The short ribs, divine. I even liked the apples in the prawn dish!

    If you want a treat that isn't on the menu, ask your waiter for their apple & chicken plate. The apples are fried and salted, while the chicken has a light honey mustard to it. It's so delicious!

    Impressed with the presentation, service and food. The picture I have here speaks for itself. I had a rice with beef dish and duck in a bun.

    A little bit of a racket at dinner. "Order for you" turns into upgrading things you ask for to more expensive similar options without really giving you a choice. On the other hand, it's good food.

    Reviews just okay, but it was close to our hotel and we were tired. Great choice as it was delish, fresh and creative! Service was questionable at first but then they really pulled throug.HGo for it.

    Believe this is a sister restaurant to House of Banking. We had the waiter just bring us his recommendations and literally Everything was delicious! Couldn't get enough.

    Delicious. Couldn't say what my favorite dishes are as I've never seen a menu. Don't be afraid and let the staff order for you. It's definitely some of the best Chinese food I've had in SF.

    For large parties, request to be seated at the Tibetan room. Dignitaries usually accommodate this area. Enjoy the private, wood-lined, opulent feel. For the claustiphobic, don't use the elevator!

    Egg rolls are surprisingly good, dumpings were avg but sauce was tasty. Bf short ribs were recommene, it was okk. Good flavor but its pretty much like salt and pepper fried beef stew cubes.

    Let them order for our group of five for lunch, got about 6-7 dishes for about 20 per person. Lovely authentic & fusion food, great value.

    Get the salted pork belly with pumpkin over rice. Red pepper chili flakes gives it a slight kick. Deliciousness for under $10 during lunch time.

    So I love this place, it's a little pricey. Bring a bunch of people so you can get more dishes and just let the chef order for you.

    "An emphasis on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients make classic dishes (steamed soup dumplings, fried egg rolls, sesame chicken) shine."
  • Eugene L.
    Quite a few dishes seem to be deep fried. Peter ordered short ribs and fish with tofu for us, which were decent choice and priced on the high side. I may return to try the dumplings.

    We let them order for us. Would highly recommend doing this if you're here with a large group.

    If the chef comes out and asks if you've been there before, say no! He'll make several delicious courses that you'd likely never order on your own.

    Make sure to order appetizers if you're in a group because fang staff has not yet figured out how to bring everyone's entrees out near the same time

    We are need taken care of by Peter Fang personally. He took away our menus and is suprising us with each course. Incredible flavors and variety.

    Appetizers can come out after some of the entrees, so there's no way around their inability to bring everyone's food out at the same time.

    Brown rice with fish and shrimp good flavor but they mix in fermented black beans ewww. Everything was small portions, flavor was there but overpriced for what it is.

    Five Spice Whitefish is pretty darn tasty. It has a scrambled egg consistency. Try it!
