Went last Sunday for an evening meal with the mrs, been before and always love it. Sunday was no exception. Fantastic food.. spare ribs are amazing. Crispy Cantonese chicken was delicious and the same goes for the chicken satay. The service is second to none, really attentive with a very personal touch. The staff cannot do enough for you. Will...

Good homely food. Decor was dated but somehow added to the appeal of the place, service by family members was discreet and excellent. Value for money and good something rare these days.

Stopped here on way back to Glasgow from Manchester airport. Not sure if it is typical of the Chinese restaurants in Lancaster because it is the only one I have been too. It reminded me of going out for dinner in the 80s. Food was nice and plentiful but done differently than I'm used to, for example the aromatic duck... More

A little retro gem in Lancaster; wonderful and tasty food with excellent service, attentive but not intrusive. If you love genuine Chinese food this is the place to come. It's always a good sign when customers are Chinese also!

The service here was excellent, however I thought the food was very average. I ordered king prawns with mushrooms which was quite bland and watery. Would come back to try other dishes though.

Another brilliant visit to Fortune Star, lovely food quickly served and very attentive staff. Can't understand the people who don't give this restaurant great reviews, never fails to step up to the mark as far as I'm concerned.

This place seems to get vast numbers of 4&5* reviews, which is partly why we came here, but it wasn't really the experience we had. Firstly, the staff were friendly and helpful, especially can't fault the waitress who served us. However, we booked a table for the small group of us, and arrived at the booked time. At the same...

Visited whilst staying the night in Lancaster. Staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. Food was very tasty and the portions huge! Each main could easily fill 2/3 people. We didn't finish our meal but the lady who was on front of house boxed it up at no trouble to take home. If back in Lancaster again... More

All the food was yummy and I felt sad that... More
