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”.
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
we enjoyed Fantan but it would have been more enjoyable had the waitress explained more about the actual meals on the menu and what might be a good combination for a group of 5 which we were. They were very slow to clear our table. I particularly liked the ribs and jelly tip dessert. There was no dessert wine on the menu - there was a late harvest bt it was a 750ml and also not a true dessert wine. We had a fun night and will be back - thank you - our friends shouted us for my birthday and so I can't comment on value for money Though we only had a couple of bottles of wine including the late harvest so I don't imagine it was that expensive - rather good value for money !
Delicious food and reasonably priced.
Love Fan Tan!
Love it, we did the Chef’s table with Sal, fantastic food, we will be back, highly recommend.
We enjoyed our small platters of dumplings, and bao buns, and fried rice but were extremely disappointed with the massaman curry (strange flavour, meat very dry) and jasmine rice (cold and dry). Didn’t even finish our meal. Service was great.
It was great - other than seeing the cook drop a dumpling on the floor then put it back in the pan
Beautiful food and friendly staff
wonderfully tasty food. Perhaps a little less Chilli in the Gado Gado Salad... And possibly a couple more GF options in the small plates, but hard to fault and the service was 5 Star!
The prawn ginger dumplings in laksa sauce were fab. Some of the other dishes we tried could have had more flavour and more hit! (Ribs and bao buns)
The Trust the Chef menu was incredible and such a treat sitting up at the bar chatting with the chef and watching them prepare our feast. Thank you for a great night! We may not have to eat for a couple of days we're so full. ;)
Sumptuous food. Highly recommend it to try. Will come back definitely .
We ordered a lot of incredible dishes that all came out as we had been advised, when they were ready. It was too much at once and and became cold quickly. We would have been better to order half of them, eat them And then order the other half and eat them all While they were hot. Not a major but would have made for a better eating experience.
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!
