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”.

Atmosphere was still great, but it was difficult at times with 2 people in our group who were hard of hearing.

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.

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

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.

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

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. 😊
