Cuisine: Chinese, Contemporary, Sichuan
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35
Ranked: #7 of 115 restaurants in Auckland

Far from your average Asian fusion restaurant, Fang Yum brings a wealth of innovative Sichuan flavours.

Enter into a fictional world in which the Fang Yum Punks have nicknamed themselves the ‘Underground Flavour Liberation Front’. Led by their renegade chef Fang, the punks bravely fight to bring the taste of real Sichuan food to the people.

In practical terms, this means an enthusiastic, quirky and committed team of staff and an experimental menu created with passion.

Treat yourself to Sichuan scampi mapo tofu or crispy sweet soy pork ribs followed by a sumptuous red bean fudgy chocolate brownie. Complement your meal with carefully chosen beers, your choice of wine, or push the boat out with a Magnum of Louis Roederer Brut champagne. Gluten free and vegan options available.

For an energetic and unique Sichuan culinary experience, look no further.

That's it - i'm in love with this place!
The fit-out is awesome, with little nooks and plush cushions to make your evening cosy an intimate.
The hardest part was choosing what to eat... and we definitely didn't have any regrets or food envy when it came out.
Started with the prawn and scallop dumplings - can I just say as someone who is gluten intolerant, being able to have dumplings is a game changer... and they were decadent! The salmon nori cones were what an instagram influencers dreams are made of (and tasted like heaven), and the lotus chips were next level too. A seriously dangerous addiction.
The chicken cups were packed full of flavour, and the kumara chips were a refreshing change to the classic deep fried, oily ones other places tend to serve. The seasoning was spot on.
The cauliflower and broccoli needs it own separate paragraph because it is the definite dark horse on this menu. The combined flavours of creamy, nutty and smokey made me wanting more and more. You NEED to order it.
Fangs has this whole 'thing' figured out, and are one step ahead of the game.

Thanks for a fab night - i'll be back for more cones, cauli and crying with absolute delight soon!

Also - I have to note Cameron. He helped to make the whole experience. Keep him on. Treat him well. He's a wee gem!

The food was to perfection! The scallop and prawn dumplings were easily the best dumplings I have ever had and the duck buns blew me away. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and in fact I plan to go back there as soon as I can with the rest of my family.

What an amazing dining experience! Fang yum punks is definitely a special tucked away restaurant in Parnell that everyone needs to try before they get so popular that you’ll probably have to start booking in advance! The design and vibe of the restaurant was very creative and well-put together, it reminded me of my dining experience at some of the popular restaurants in Melbourne. The flavours of the dishes delighted my palate, definitely achieved the perfect fusion! The service, ambience and most-importantly, the food - all of it was very highly rated my all my friends and I whom are huge foodies. Definitely will be going again.

Awesome! Love the concept, anime artistry and story behind the project. Food absolutely delivered with wonderful flavors, spicy and non-spicy alike, something sumptuous for absolutely everyone. Decor is modern and comfortable with great attention to detail. Feels very special inside and service was outstanding as well. Love that it's tucked away like a hidden gem! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will be back again soon.

Our experience at Fang Yum Punks would struggle to be matched on both food and service fronts.
The service was warm and welcoming, attentive but not unnecessarily so.
The food came quickly and was delicious. For someone that isn't a tofu eater, their crispy tofu dish converted me. It's a creative and delicious dining experience that I'll be long raving about.

Had a lovely dinner with friends on a Friday night. It's a shame this place is so tucked away behind Winona Forever, as I'm sure it would attract way more people if it was visible from the street. Decor looks great and ambiance is really nice.
Food is great, really enjoyed it especially the dumplings were awesome!
We did have to wait for some of our food for quite a while, other than that, we had a great time! Would definitely come back again.

Experience started very well with a friendly and welcoming greeting, noticed the fantastic fit out and setting and appreciated the level of detail. Great cocktail menu and wanted to order everything on the menu as it all sounded good. When the food came it did not disappoint full of flavor. Overall when recommended and UT won't be long before we return.

Great food, great service, great confusion....
Sounds controversial...by the name of restaurant, little bit by the menu, we though it is Asian restaurant.
Yes, dumplings are Asian dish, but not with ingredients we had, and again, we liked it a lot.
Fish curry very nice, slow cooked beef shank excellent and very hot (I like hot), but again...nothing about Asian food.
We will go back for more (even its not a typical Asian restaurant)...and place is recommended.
