Faan Restaurant Review:

This Brooklyn joint offers the gamut of Asian cuisines---Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, and so on. From spicy stir-fries to specialty sushi rolls, there’s plenty to savor, including a lively bar downstairs. For starters, try the sliced octopus in vinaigrette sauce or the dumplings, and for a main course you can’t go wrong with the grilled pork chops with lemon grass. All in all, this hip pan-Asian joint may stretch itself too thin trying to cover all Asian dishes. In the end, however, you have a chic little neighborhood spot to grab a quick bite while checking out the locals.
