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”.
Lovely food and good service but the temperature inside the building was so cold and draughty it took away the enjoyability of dining.
Delicious food & fantastic service but was very chilly under the air conditioning unit!
Great team, great new menu
The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed, the staff are helpful and friendly and the food was fantastic and full of flavour! We especially loved the hapuka dish! Have already recommended it to others and are looking forward to when we can return 😀
Awesome, had the chefs choice menu. He was great to chat too also. Amazing. Our family really enjoyed the experience
Food n drink were great. Duty Manager was extremely rude and unwelcoming. Was quite shocked at his attitude. Fortunately waitress was lovely. He needs to acquire customer service skills
Fantastic! Loved everything
Really yummy food , great service and nice atmosphere Would recommend Thanks
Good food and service, though a limited menu.
This is the 4th time I have been to Fan Tan, and it doesn't fail to impress. Well done!
Loved the food, great restaurant. We Will be back next time we come to Arrowtown.
Really great food and selction. Thought the seared fish was a bit more than seared - other than that, delicious.
Great local !
we had a table of 11 people and everyone enjoyed the evening and loved the food, so happy Arrowtown now has a restaurant that we thoroughly love
Loved your new restaurant so much , food service and atmosphere amazing . Loved the gyoza and chilli prawns , good portion sizes too . Can’t wait to come back .
My 2nd visit. Food was good but way too salty! Baffling menu as my main course came before the entree. My main was also much smaller than a lot of the entrees. Chaotic service. Liked the food but may not risk another visit du e to poor/ slow service.
Great food, great service and good value for money. thanks again everyone at Fan Tan, we are very lucky to have this in the "hood". We'll be back!
Fantastic service and food.
Tan Fan had been recommended to me a few times from friends. As my guests were on their honeymoon in the Wakatipu basin from Wellington, they had been to many restaurants from as far as Wanaka to Queenstown. As we walked away they both said "This has got to be the best food we have eaten in the Lakes District so far!" I believe that says it it! Thank you for the amazing attention to detail from the staff also.
They forgot our vegetables, by the time they came, chicken and rice were cold, the girl, did not care , just said well there was nothing she cud do
Amazing food and service
We were a large party of 18, initial service to get drinks was a bit slow - would have been good to have a designated person to look after getting drink orders. However once this was sorted had a very pleasant drink outside in the courtyard before sitting down in the restaurant. Wait staff were great at communicating the best way to order for a large party, food was fantastic and a very enjoyable evening. Thank you Fan Tan!
Delicious food, especially loved the raw fish and lamb pancakes. great service
