We eat both in the restaurant and we also do take out. The food is good. You must order the soup to get noodles placed on the table. Lots of variety.

I think better than average, with an array of lunch specials. Value seems good, convenient parking. They have sushi available.

Who has ever heard of a Chinese restaurant unable to cook anything else but the short menu? There, beef and scallions is understood to be beef and scallops ! Service is done by very young (barely legal) kids. Perhaps the worst place experienced in NJ - ever! It would be such an error to throw good money at so little.... More

Fan Bistro, nor any other Americanized Chinese restaurant, really distinguish itself since the menu, except for the sushi choices, are ubiquitous. The quality of the food, though, is a step above the usual, maybe because the restaurant is so large and food turns over so quickly. Sort of miss it when it was just a storefront takeout.

I've been looking for a good Chinese takeout place around here for a bit and I'm glad I stumbled upon this one. The prices are reasonable for the area and the food is really good; I've tried the wonton soup, egg rolls, and beef with broccoli and they were all delicious. I'll definitely be coming here again as this is... More

We took a large party (11) to the Fan Bistro. We had eaten there about six months ago (party of 5) and had been very happy with the food and service. On this visit, much of the food was served cold (yes, it was supposed to be hot). I am not sure if the reason was the size of the... More

I eat here a few times a month because their food is amazing and comes out fast. I also get general tso, fried rice, an egg roll, and wonton soup. Every time it's amazing and is consistently good. However the servers are not friendly. I feel like they rush to take my order, eat, and pay just to get me... More
