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”.
Great atmosphere, goof food and service.
Thank you to the main chef (forgot his name sorry) for the great evening. We really enjoyed your hospitality and cooking. We will be back.
Atmosphere was still great, but it was difficult at times with 2 people in our group who were hard of hearing.
Initial service a little slow but great from then on
Love the food. One of the best in the Southern Lakes area.
Excellent food, fantastic service and all for a reasonable price! Thank you for having us, will recommend and pop by again!
We only stayed for drinks but everyone was really impressed with the place. Had a lovely time thanks
Really enjoyed Fan Tan. Lovely helpful staff an awesome food. We will be back.
Amazing food and great atmosphere. Drinks were good too - I tried the espresso martini and it was delicious! Thanks Ross, awesome service all round
We have been to Fan Tan probably 20 times. We love the food, the ambiance and the service. I have no hesitation recommending the restaurant to locals and visitors. It is great to have such a lovely restaurant in Arrowtown.
Not a great experience, maitre d had some serious bad attirude. We seemed to be an inconvenience
Love the food and flavours at Fan Tan and the service is nicely attentive. Keep up the great work and keep creating. Phil
Amazing flavours!! Every dish was special. Thank you
Disappointed with the food. Frequent guests and feel the standard of food is slipping. Many dishes bland and lacked seasoning. Made our feelings known and staff responded appropriately but will probably not return
couldnt find the kids menu on the website. So please that the did have a kids menu!
A special place for a special celebration.
This was our second visit and just as good as the first. Top restaurant, we will be back.
The whole experience was very enjoyable - tasty food, good service and a great atmosphere. The only slight negative was the dumplings which were very tasty but the dough slightly under cooked.
Beautiful food. Lovely service. Catered well for me being a vegetarian and gave a few options.
Hi, Our waitress was excellent and we couldn't have hoped for any better. Attentive, fun, knowledgeble. The food was quick, tasty, and interesting. The atmosphere was great. Thank you very much for a great visit and the candle on the desert for my wife's birthday was a lovely touch too. Will be back as soon as we can. Cheers, Rob
Seb an absolute legend
Staff really friendly, food great, nice restaurant vibe. Just a point when you are booking - tables and bar stools near the entrance door are absolutely freezing and busy with staff and diners coming in and out. We sat at the bar stool area and were unable to take our coats and scarves off throughout dinner and we are tough locals. Maybe provide blankets... In summer they will be the perfect seats. 😊
Amazing food and even better service
