Best Chinese Restaurant in Portsmouth

I'm not one for leaving reviews on trip advisor but feel that on this one credit where credit is due! We eat here every couple of weeks and whilst most of the time it's by take away, we've also eaten in and it's equally as great. We've eaten in numerous restaurants in china Town in London and... read more

We found this Chinese restaurant online and it was as good as other tripadvisors said. We were the only Westerners in there that evening, which was a good sign. The service was fast and efficient and the food very fresh and appetising. The portions were just right and the staff were very attentive without being intrusive.

I was lucky enough to visit this restaurant just after Christmas 2014 with a very good Chinese friend of mine. She introduced us to some amazing dishes from her province and we enjoyed the meal so much we decided to go a few weeks later for my daughter's birthday. We asked for the Chinese menu with English translation and chose... More

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

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
