Stopped in for lunch based on the excellent reviews. The place was very busy but there was only one server. The food was delicious but we waited for over one hour. I would have rated them higher but an hour wait is unacceptable.

We have been going to the Fan-Tan Café for years. We especially like the Ginger Beef dish, the Thai Peanut Noodles and the Won-ton soup. The staff is usually helpful and friendly!

The atmosphere at Fan-Tan Cafe is amazing. Even the old neon signs welcome you to a restaurant that is a throw back to great restaurants of the past. They have a sense of humour, ample portions and the Best won ton soup ever.

Next to Fan Tan Alley is this delicious restaurant. Good food for a reasonable price, orders are taken quickly and the food is served in no time.

Not much exciting about the street front aesthetics of this restaurant. The reviews in the past seem widely varied. However our recent visit during lunch was extremely pleasant. The wonton soup bowl medium size is enough for a full meal it is full of wontons...More

My wife and I ordered the lunch special. We waited and in all honesty the food looked great! However, the taste was very salty and it was heavy with oil. I explained politely that the food wasn't edible and we couldn't eat it. Instead the...More
