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”.
Our Asian-style sharing menu offers a range of dining options varying from small to large group tables,
through to intimate chefs bench seating for 4 people at the open kitchen.
