Hidden Gem

Set right on the Southernmost end of Chinatown on S. Wentworth, House of Fortune does not boast fancy decor, but the service is great and the food is delicious. Place was recommended to me by a colleague who ordered an excellent Peking Duck from the venue. Every table gets hot tea (I didn't have to... read more

This hotel was within walking distance of the hotel we were staying in (the Chicago Loop Hotel on 26th st) and they had really good Peking duck.

We visited House of Fortune in Chicago, IL, yesterday for lunch and were extremely disappointed. The egg roll was just average, the pork potstickers were tough and barely warm and the BBQ pork bites were fatty. There are plenty of other Chinese restaurants on the same street in Chinatown and I am sure that any of them would have been... More

We were in Chicago for the day and decided to go to China Town for lunch. There are so many restaurants to choose from, we chose the closest one to where we parked the car. We made an excellent choice with House of Fortune. We ordered the Family Dinner for 3. The soup of the day was a traditional Egg... More

Hidden from the eye Dim-Sum restaurant in Chicago's china town. I came on 9:00 AM when the restaurant was still empty, the service was great, the food was genuine, fresh and delicious, and the prices on the floor. Deeply recomended. Notice that at noon there is a queue of 20-30 min for tables...

Don't let impression of decor influence your dining experience to come. It's clean and basic but the food is anything but! Nice selection of drinks available and menu to match. Peking duck is wonderful and rolled into Pancakes efficiently. The mixed vegetables are some of the best I've had. Mongolian beef & shrimp with oyster sauce very good. The owner/manager... More

I see there are some rave reviews about this place. About all I can say is, it's OK. Staff is pleasant and polite. The food we had was nothing special. Spicy Szechuan chicken and Tenderloin Beef in Hot Pepper Sauce. My brother-in-law had the chicken. Nothing to rave about. It was fine (spicy too!). The beef I had was the... More

Very pleasant waiter and manager. Quiet atmosphere. Reasonably priced and tasty food! Big portions. I really loved the Egg tofu and mushrooms dish, the dumplings and the mustard sauce. This place doesn't look awesome from the outside but I can tell you that it really is.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
