I was treated very poorly here. There was a minor mistake with my order, which was no big deal - I got the wrong type of rice with my combination platter. I first tried to address this with Door Dash by clicking the "help" button....But that menu informed me that feedback would simply be shared with the restaurant to improve future experiences, not that my order would be fixed. So I called the restaurant to ask about this, and the woman I spoke to said "for Door Dash orders, you need to speak to my manager, but she's on the other line. Give me your number and she'll call you right back." So I did and I waited. 15 minutes later, when I received no call, I tried calling again, only to find that they had blocked my number ("Welcome to Verizon Wireless. Your call cannot be completed as dialed" - for a number that had worked 15 minutes ago). I tried several more times to no avail, but then called with my partner's phone and the call went right through. I explained that I was waiting now for 20 minutes and no one had called me back. She asked me to hold the line for her manager to speak to me, but then hung up. I tried calling back only to find that they blocked THAT number as well. So I got in my car and went to the restaurant. There was one woman and two men present (and I could see the entire place). The woman approached me, and I asked for the manager. She said she was the manager, and I recognized her voice as the one on the phone - meaning she lied about needing to have another female manager speak to me. I confronted her in a calm manner about her jerking me around and blocking my calls. She just looked at my quizzically. I asked her to at least make it right by replacing my combination platter (since the chicken had sat around for a while by this point), but she would only give new rice. She then said that in the future, I should call door dash if there's something wrong with my order, because they can initiate a new order. I said it would have been nice if she told me that when I called instead of jerking me around. Rest assured, there will be no future order. I only ordered from here in the first place because my usual place is closed on Mondays. In the future I would choose hunger over this kind of hassle.More

I am a local so I have eaten here quite often. Since the previous owner their prices have skyrocketed. They forget things so you better check your order before you leave. The food is about average. But the prices are driving me to drive further...away.More

The pork fried rice tasted like grease. The spring rolls, the cabbage inside was so tough you coudn't bite thru it. We threw almost all of it out. Never again, money out the window.

We tried them again because friends said it was really good food now. Maybe new owners or maybe just kicked it up a notch. But we ordered for 5 people everything from soups to appetizers to main course. All was very very good. Changing out...our past chinese take out to Happy Fortune. Ordered on line easily and paid for it on line. Daughter picked it up. It went smoothly and we were very happy with everything.More

BEWARE: Happy Fortune is charging $2 per order for some "extra CoronaVirus Add On". This charge isn't shown or explained anywhere on their website or on any posting at the store. This occurred May 24, 2020. It's a rip off and that charge detail is...not shown on your charge card receipt.More

Food is always good here. I love that they offer brown rice compared to some restaurants. After so much money spent in an order you get a free drink as well. No matter if you order 1 item or 14 items its always done in...15 minutes and I love that! Its more of a place you order and take out not really much for staying and eating.More

Nice place for a quick lunch. I had the chicken with peanuts lunch special with soup and an egg roll. Everything tasted great and I would definitely go back again. Nice staff as well. Very friendly.

We've been ordering from Happy Fortune for years now. The food has been consistently great, and they have a lot of interesting options we haven't found locally elsewhere. Some of the folks in the family have food sensitivities, and they have always been very welcoming...and friendly about making adjustments to our orders without complaint and they've always gotten it right. They're quick, the prices are great, the options are wonderful, and all around we've been happy with them for well over a decade. If you're looking for local Chinese takeout, you really can't go wrong here.More

Although we are regulars at this place for takeout I have never taken the time to review them until now. Just had another couple visiting us who were hungry for good Chinese food for dinner and all the ones close to their home were disappointing....We knew where to go for takeout that night. As always the food was made to order, hot and delicous. Our order was ready in 10 minutes and we were on our way. Only one item was not quite up to the usual standard that night and those were the eggrolls but our friends said they were still way better than the best place in their area so I guess we can't complain. Another good dinner from our go to place for Chinese food!More

Happy Fortune has been my go to place for take-out Chinese food in the North Wilmington area for the last 18 years. They have a great Cold Noodles in Sesame sauce, which I have a hard time finding at other places. They also have this...delicious Pan Brown Wontons in sauce. It is quite tasty and filling.More

Hubby and i got hot and sour soup. It was bland. We got steamed dumplings. dumplings were way to thick and dense. They were ok. Weo ordered shrimp Mei Fon and Singapore special Mei Fon. Both were good but lacked flavor. Singapore should be spicey...and somewhat hot. There was no heat. The place was clean the lady quickly hustled me out of there. I told her this was our first time there- she was too busy to care about what i said. I was out of there quickly.More

We have been eating HF's take out Chinese food almost as far back as it's been in business. We have always found the food to be hot, prepared to order (even with a few special requests), and ready when we arrive to pick it up....The orders have always been accurate. Each time the lady taking the order says "ten minutes" and it's there waiting for us. The quantity of the food is often enough for two meals and they use very good food containers that can be used in the microwave when there are leftovers for many of the menu items. One additional note, When an order exceeds (I think $15), a free can/bottle of soda is included, which you select from the cold display case.More

Have always had very good lunch meals along with the excelent egg rolls. Maybe it was the evening hour but the quality was not the same. The pork Fried rice was not fully cooked and somewhat oily. The wonton soup was good With tasty wonton....Dissapointed with the evening quality. Recommend lunch but dinner was lacking. Not one to write reviews but when spending hard earned money I do have certain expextations.More

The Chinese food here is excellent. It is one of our go to take-out places in the area. One of their best dishes is their Pan Fried Wontons in Sauce. The sauce is a mixture of the dumpling sauce and a peanut sauce. Get some...egg rolls with it and mop it up with them. Really good.More
