We ventured to the Fortune Star on a friday night, ringing 30minutes to book a table, but there was really no need. We arrived quite late about 20:30 and the restaurant was about half full. The service was flawless throughout and we really enjoyed ourselves. We initially found the pricing on the menu a little expensive (£8.00 for Chow Mein),... More

Decided to have a Chinese as a treat whilst on a weekend away in Lancaster, and picked this restaurant purely because it looked so nice ! Not disappointed at all, lovely food, very welcoming staff, overall a really good experience. Would certainly go back next time we are in this part of the world.

The staff are really friendly here and the food is good, though for a Chinese I would say the menu is limited... But everything we have tried has been nice.

Ordered take away to finish our holiday. Food was very very bland, ( black bean sauce)the beef although plentiful was odd tasting, very fatty. Our first take away ( normally eat in) Definately not the same standards as the restaurant...or they have a new chef......will not hurry back. Shame.

7 of us got together for a birthday celebration, we had fantastic service, the food was well cooked and delicious and when I told the lady it was my birthday the extra service that followed exceeded my expectations-a thoroughly enjoyable night. Thank you very much.

We visited last night and had a set meal. The food was fantastic and the portions were huge. We even received 3 main courses although there were only 2 of us. The staff were extremely friendly and also checked with each course if we were ready or if we would like a break. That was great as one of my... More

Went on a Saturday night. Had the mixed starter for two which was all very nice! For mains we had two sizzling dishes, the prawns and the cantonese fillet steak, both of which were delicious! Had a bottle of the rose wine too and the whole meal came to under £45.00! Very reasonable! Would definately return!

I'll be succinct; Fortune Star is one of the best Chinese dining experiences I've ever had. This little gem might not be incredibly refined or cutting edge, but the entire place has a rich, authentic feel and family atmosphere which really adds to the dining experience. The service was fantastic - the manager really made us feel at home, while... More

We went for a banquet which was great value for money as we couldn't finish it all and asked to take some, the staff where more than obliging. Plenty of Chicken in the delicious chicken & sweetcorn soup and really meaty spring rolls. The staff are incredibly polite, helpful and friendly, this is a hidden gem!

I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The service is amazing, the staff are really friendly and attentive. The food is really tasty and is great value for money. The wine selection is also pretty good. I would recommend to anyone wanting a tasty chinese meal in Lancaster.
