We have eaten at the Fortune Palace for many years. Our favorite dishes are the pork fried rice with bean sprouts and the Mango Chicken. These dishes are very tasty and most reasonable. The restaurant ha a lovely view, set in the marshes of the North Shore and the inlet of Essex. The staff is very cordial. We recommend the... More

Very good Chinese food in a room with a nice view of the Essex River across the street. The owners could not be nicer and more accommodating. We've had 2 big birthday parties there with children and adults and everyone enjoyed it.

The lunch specials are a great deal and very good food. If you visit during the lunch hour, ask for the lunch menu.

On Christmas Night, no one in our family wanted to cook after a long day of opening presents and eating snacks, so we ventured out to the Fortune Palace. Along the way, we realized there was not another restaurant in the area that was serving dinner. We ordered drinks, Mai Tais and Zombies. They were both delicious. The menu was... More

We've been long-time fans of Fortune Palace. The food is always fresh and delicious. We have to drive about 15-20 minutes to get there, but it is well worth the drive.

Havnt been in a long time but went on friday and the bar service was great. So glad to see that they finally put a smiling face behind the bar. The last few visits they had the mansger bartending and he was just miserable, unhappy, stressed, and ruined my visit. The building needs some work but nice to see the... More

Having eaten here on several occasions, we decided to go there again. The service was fast and courteous, the food fresh and plentiful and atmosphere pleasant. We were even there one New Years Eve and they were able to pull it off again even though they were very busy. I would recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant is looking a bit tired so I wouldn't suggest staying to eat. They need to give it an updating. I would recommend ordering takeaway form Fortune Palace. The menu is Chinese-American with quite a few daily specials (so be sure to ask when you call in). The prices are reasonable and you will receive good food quickly.

We stopped going here after getting sick after take-out meals there twice in 2012. Be warned. It was okay in the mid-2000s, but has gone downhill and obviously, making people sick isn't a good business strategy.
