OK Experience at Fortune House

Our meal at Fortune House wasn't anything exciting or special. That said, the food was good and the prices were excellent. The restaurant is a bit outdated and needs some attention. The service was good too.

Portions were huge and the Chow Fun with vegetables was served very hot, as it should be. One friend had beef and... More

After the masculine female hostess took us to our table and tossed menus at us, we were a bit set back. We were hoping it will get better. It didn't. All of our dishes were served over cold , old rice. Since it a took a long time for the orders to arrive, we decided to consider a loss, not... More

I have eaten at Fortune House many times over the years and have always had a good meal. When I am visiting a friend downtown and we want Chinese food this is the place that we go to. They have a good selection of dim sum at lunch time every day or you can order off the menu. Their dinner... More

We've eaten at Fortune House for years for many of our large and small gatherings. The food is authentic and delicious. Try the lobster with scallions and ginger and you'll be a believer. Let's hope it continues under the new management. As mentioned above, it is a traditional Chinese restaurant in terms of service.

The four of us went to Fortune House for dinner. Selected three from the menu of "Select 3 for $XX. Ordered the beef and gai lan, steamed tofu with minced meat, baked breaded fillet and eggplant with chicken and salted fish. All very tasty and enjoyable. The beef strips were tender (not spongy) and the gai lan were young and... More

We come here with my mother in law who is from Hong Kong. If you are not used to traditional Chinese restaurants, you might be surprised by the service. Even we with a table full of Chinese people and a woman who seems to know half the employees need to wave them down to get water, more napkins, etc. That's... More
