Better than expected!

Dinner at Fan-Tan was actually an amazing experience. My girlfriend and I are decently used to eating at slightly fancier places and was just expecting the norm, but the food there was pretty unique and so delicious! I think we were allowed to choose from a few more options than what's written on the book me deal, for the entree most things on the "get me started" and dumpling section was an option. And the main could be chosen from the seafood section or the meat section. We ended up with 3 soft bao buns with fried white bait, slaw, green chili mayo and these 3 small fried wonton nori dumplings (the filings were wrapped in seaweed and then fried, with salmon on top) both of these were new dishes to us. They were beautifully made but not the most filing so we were a bit worried about the size of the mains, but the mains ended up being quite generously sized that we could barely finish! We ordered Sesame Sticky Pork Ribs with Gochuyang Glaze as well as some Chinese styled lamb dish. Both were absolutely divine, the pork was not dry at all, it was soft and went very well with the sweet and salty Korean sauce! I did find that it can be a bit too much to eat all the pork ribs by themselves though, and I found myself greatful for the stir fried long beans, asparagus, onion, beansprout etc. In the lamb stir fry. I was also pleasantly surprised at the lamb dish, I've had many stir frys before yet this felt different. The lamb were delicious tender flavourful cubes and we got a bowl of rice which went very well with the sauce from the stir fry (we literally tipped the bowl onto the plate to let it suck up the juice). Although I think it can be a bit too salty if you have it without rice I think. They also have an extensive drink menu which had some nice drinks (not included in deal though). We booked for a Sunday at 5:30 as it was cheapest despite us not used to eating so early, we found that by the time you choose and order and wait for your food, it's about 6pm anyways which isn't too early to have dinner! The place wasn't very busy and we got a corner all to ourselves. With it being January and summer in NZ, it was still bright outside for us to walk around after our fulling meal. The decor, atmosphere, music and waitors all added to our experience. The waitor was very attentive and made sure to check in on us throughout our meal. So, overall, I feel like this deal is well worth it!!

Best experience in Arrowtown

As a Chinese I'm really restricted with food. But I would say the food here is obviously the best during my Queenstown trip.
