Lovely staff

This is a nice restaurant with lovely staff. The food was nice too, better than most Chinese food we've had in a long time but nothing to rave about though. We were not rushed through the meal and the portion sizes were generous. We would visit again.

We love to dine in the restaurant, have rarely had any complaint and the staff are really attentive. But we ordered a take away and OH MY GOD what a shocker! The starters we ordered looked and tasted like they had been cooked days earlier and re-heated several times, the seaweed had a weird smell so we dare not taste... More

Lovely staff and excellent service. We hadn't booked but didn't have to wait too long. We went for the set banquet for two. The food was great and the portions were generous. Would recommend.

We were driving home after a day out and felt hungry, and knew we'd not be home till quite late. We phoned at 1900 and booked a table for 1930 whilst we were some 20 miles away, anyway, we arrived with 5 mins to spare after parking about 100yds away. We were greeted and offered menus and drinks, then our... More

Staff nice and welcoming. A bit shabby and outdated inside. Food was average. Good sized portions. Chicken & sweetcorn soup was unseasoned. Sweet & sour lacked the right sweet n sour balance - very vinegary and lacked salt. The beef mushroom was unseasoned. Very disappointing to be honest.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff of the fortune star. The food and service was excellent makes me wonder why we have been going to other Chinese takeaways.
