If you are looking for something to warm you up during this wet damp season go to Fan Tan Cafe for their tantalizing Won ton soup. Ask for extra ginger and it will cure you of anything that ails you. Don't let the dark atmosphere fool you, the staff are friendly and the food is good.

This place appears to have been there for quite a while. It has a great menu if you are looking for noodles.and is reasonably priced. It's small, cozy and clean.

We have been having the War Won Ton Soup here for years and this is the first time we have been disappointed. The soup was only average this visit and not loaded with veggies and meat....broth was not flavorful. Spring rolls were very good.
.....will be a while before we try it again.
....service was good.

In a China Town with so many good restaurants this one stands out and when mentioned to local people and our hotel hosts it's highly praised. The soups were the best we've had in years from coast to coast. The place is not very big so in at dinner time you may have a little wait. It's worth it.

Fan-Tan Cafe is a great place to pop in for lunch when you're downtown. Obviously, lots of people know about this place, as it's usually quite busy, but they seem to be able to find you a spot no matter what. We've never had to wait. They have lunch specials where you can choose 3 different dishes for a set price and it all comes on one plate. The food is tasty and comes quite quickly. They don't have wifi, which might matter to some people. I'm not sure if they have a license for liquor. Anyway, a good place for a quick lunch. Try it. You'll like it. And not expensive.
