About
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 place where you can dine inside or out in a sunny courtyard. I really loved my meal here and everything we tried was absolutely delicious. Service was outstanding and we will definitely be back!

The two of us ordered a gadogado salad, chicken curry, Burmese beef, and fried rice. Delicious flavours and the service was great. Couldn't finish it all so had leftovers the next day.

Delicious meal with a group of friends, they were short staffed and under the pump but they handled it perfectly and delivered an amazing selection of super tasty food!

Enjoyable food, we tried a range of dishes at our table of four and we wolfed it all down. Great service, quick and tasty. Would recommend.

We popped in to Fan-Tan for an early dinner. Both of us were pretty hungry after a long road trip, and the large portions at Fan-Tan soon saw us replete. We enjoyed all our dishes, especially the dumplings. The service was attentive, although this dropped...More

We dropped in for an early dinner with our 3 children during the week and left with mixed feelings. The food was lovely, our (early primary school aged) kids ate from both the kid and the adult menu and we were pleasantly surprised by the...More

Lacks atmosphere, poor service, and food is too salty or over spiced. Was a recommendation but failed almost totally. Staff seem disinterested or perhaps they aren’t proud of the food which is fair enough as the standard was so bad I wrote this review. The...More
