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

This really is a wonderful Chinese restaurant. The staff are always very friendly and attentive and the manager even took the time to learn my name. The food is always freshly cooked and tastes wonderful, and it is reasonably priced too. The fact there are always so many Oriental people eating there speaks volumes in my opinion. Since we moved...
