About Fan-Tan


Fan-Tan is a story of East meets West. The name orignates from the game, long played in China with beans or pebbles and evokes Arrowtown’s goldrush history, when, in the 1860’s Chinese miners brought their own gambling games to the goldfields. Our cuisine is a fusion of European, NZ, Pacifica food with flavours influenced from Asia.

It is simple delicious food, designed for sharing and as our name suggests, “brings a sense of joy, pleasure and entertainment”.

The food is always great, the sticky pork ribs, the chicken curry, the ceviche, the dumplings, etc. Love the place.

Did the chefs bench, Jaz was fantastic, plenty of chat and very observant with what we liked (or didn't). Food and flavours we fantastic. Our only regret is that we didn't have a bigger appetite!

Guys just keep doing what you are. The food is a pleasure to taste. The chefs bench is a must try. It really brings the customer into the kitchen. The flavour your chefs pack into their dishes is awesome. We just loved our evening and your head chef was a delight.

Fresh, flavoursome food served in comfortable surroundings by efficient friendly staff. Well priced too. Loved the fact too that instead of the usual thumping music they play cool blues or what I call, Late Night New York bar type music, And it was background, so we could hold a conversation without yelling at each other. Perfect night out - dont miss Fan Tan when you’re in Arrowtown. Gives the very popular La Rumba a real run for its money.

Really good food, well presented, classy surroundings and friendly efficient staff. But spoilt for us at least by too loud music. Conversation is the extra pleasure in dining out. Maybe more relaxing, blues or similar, rather than the thudding base?

Great meal, very tasty. Fabulous to be able to sit outside in the court yard. Only issue was that the ribs, ordered as a separate main by my 2 girls, did not arrive until we had all but finished our courses.

Service was disappointing and slow at times. Two tables arrived after us and their food orders were taken before we reviewed a drinks menu.

I have visited Fan Tan many times. I probably visited the first week it opened and have continued to return. We are spoiled by the number of restaurants we have in Arrowtown and yet we return time and time again. The food is tastefully prepared, the atmosphere is great, the service is super. All and all, we enjoyed Fan Tan and highly recommend it.
