Great food, great price! Wonderful stop while visiting Victoria and China town. Had a quick lunch before our visit to Butchart Gardens. Wish I could've gone for dinner.

We dined here twice this visit in Victoria for the food was that excellent! Our favorite was their hot and sour soup and the Szechuan ginger fried beef! Our favorite Chinese restaurant! The food has a modern twist which we love! Thank you!

We visited Fan Tan Café and arrived about 11:45 before the place was packed. It's small to begin with so once filled, you feel a little claustrophobic. It didn't help we waited 15 minutes for a drink, and a full tray of drinks was dropped behind us. Once our meals were ordered and received, they were less than expected. Not to hot, fat on the pork, chewy beef, the prawns were tasty but heavy batter. I've had better Chinese food and although this was a nice tourist experience, doubt I'd return.

While the food looked great it was very average. Chintzy on the meat portion of the combo given the price.

This restaurant only has a few tables and came very recommended by our hotel staff. I have eaten in many Chinese restaurants in the US and this establishment is one of the best in Victoria island. The entrees are reasonably priced along with the daily drink specials. They take their time servicing you and are not rushed as like other Chinese restaurants. Worth the time and price
