Their soup is delicate in flavor, yet robust with ingredients. Their portions are AMPLE - to where you may not finish it all. What I didn't like is the Sweet and Sour is watered down - and comes in a syrup container. Their Hot Sauce is A++++++. Great Wait Staff, Knowledgeable - while one man could stand to smirk a... More

I have no idea who would write a negative review for this place. I've been eating here since it opened and love it. I frequently bring clients here to impress them for lunch. The staff is extremely accomodating. The atmosophere is very relaxing and low key. The lunch prices are fabulous and the food is delicious. I think whoever has... More

Excellent Chinese food with fresh premium ingredients and wonderful service. The decor and atmosphere are right out of 1991.

Second time I've tried and will not go back. Shrimp not fresh, fatty chicken. Gross! I think the rest of the reviews have to be made up.

We've been eating here for years and the food is always consistently great. We do take-out a lot and our order are always ready on time and hot. I've asked for some changes to be made to some of my order selections and they are happy to oblige. Friendly staff and they're always open!

Have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years. Consistently some of the best Chinese food in area. Have been to 'Chinatowns' in many major cities and better than most of those restaurants. Ingredients are fresh, excellent variety, reasonable prices and service is top notch. Can't go wrong.

Fresh ingredients & dishes made to order. Fast, friendly service for take out & dine in. Pan Fried Noodles & the Yang Chow Fried Rice are the best, try them!

Fortune Cookie is less than a mile from our home. Two or three Sundays a month we either go and eat in or order takeout. Favorites are Three Ingredient taster and Egg Foo Young ( 4 pieces - 2 for Lunch on Monday ). Vivian is a great hostess. You are only a stranger there the first time you go... More

Fortune Kookie is our top choice for asian take out. We have also eaten in the restaurant many times. Everything I have ever ordered has been delicious. Some of our current favorites are Singapore noodles, mu su pork, spicy tofu szechwan style and massamum chicken curry.
