Had a really nice meal here - menu is extensive. Other customers were Chinese, so this is a good sign, although when they left we were the only customers. As it was Saturday night we felt this was a shame. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Good position in the Old Town High street - about 15 mins walk from... More

The Good Fortune was ideally placed to where we were staying, so we popped in without a booking. Though busy, they found us a table. Looking around the place I could see that half the tables were occupied by Chinese patrons, and a lot of the menus were just in Chinese - a good sign. We were not disappointed -... More

Restaurant never had our booking despite booking a week earlier. Nevermind, the restaurant was empty so they 'squeezed' us in. no background music, well, no ambiance at all really. its been a few years since being here and it used to be a thriving classy restaurant, now its nothing more special than a chinese tea bar. waiters walking round with...

We were a group of six arriving at 930pm. We ordered drinks and additional jug of water. We had to ask for the water 3 times. When we ordered another Tiger beer, they did not have any chilled left...After almost an hour, some food arrived, but this was remixed quickly: wring table .... We had a set menu and some... More

Lovely meal tonight with friends, it was a quiet night being a Friday so food was very quick coming out and service was excellent. Food was delicious but just so much of it, we couldn't eat it all!!

I haven't been in a while, but i live in the old Portsmouth area and we decided to try out the local Chinese restaurant since we didn't fancy to walk to another familiar restaurant. As soon as we entered, we are faced with the inevitable, the place is very deserted. The kind waitress took our takeaway order and we were... More

I went to this restaurant as part of a large group. I was not disappointed with the food.We had a range of dishes and they were all very good. there was quite a lot of choice and it is nice to try dishes that are away from the normal 4 permutations of chinese curry, sweet and sour, black bean sauce...

I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to pay a visit. On arrival we went to sit down but had to move a couple of dirty chairs that had very bad stains on them. Upon inspection we found a lot of chairs were like this and would benefit from a thorough clean. We were given some prawn crackers... More

The food was very good indeed. We took advantage of the set menu as there were seven of us and the food was plentiful enough for us to take several punnets home with us. Service was ok, nothing special but perfectly competent. Decor and general atmosphere seemed a bit tired but overall we had a very enjoyable evening.

As a pub / restaurant owner I believe that Trip Advisor should be used to review a place for good or bad, not just bad. So after visiting Good Fortune tonight I just had to write a review! As soon as we walked through the door a lady rushed over to greet us and sat us at our table with... More
