The fortune is a great Chinese eatery. We moved away from Milwaukee over 8 years ago and decided to stop by again. The walnut shrimp and the pineapple fried rice are top notch. The potstickers are hand wrapped, not the frozen ones other places serve. There are two menus. One is a westerner style menu, and the other is more... More

The food here is by far the best outside of Hong Kong in Milwaukee! It is hard to beat Chicago and New York but for our small town attitude this place holds the light when it comes to most authentic choices! Here you get the American menu unless you ask for the Chinese menu! No the menu is not in... More

My mother was born and raised in China, and I am 100% Chinese - American born. Service ranged from downright rude to friendly to... More

When you walk into a Chinese restaurant and you see mostly Chinese customers you have arrived at the right place. The portions are very generous so family style dining is preferable. The restaurant has somewhat slow service so do not plan on a quick in and out.

Hands down this is the best Chinese restaurant in Milwaukee and waukesha. I think I have tried them all. I like a certain taste and smell to Chinese food. Fortune does it all for me. Prices are also good. They have different menus according to what you want. I've seen some real usual food come out of that kitchen. The... More

Your typical Chinese menu options, but also has Vietnamese and Korean dishes as well. If you're a real fanatic, they have a 2nd menu for authentic dish styles. It's written in Chinese, so my sister-in-law was able to read it. She ordered a bunch of stuff for us - all types of Asian cuisines - and it was all good.... More

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, really. Note that the dishes come out as they are prepared, so order as a group and just dig in. My favorite is the salt chicken. YUM!

The egg drop soup was delicious. After that the food went downhill. Egg rolls flavorless, both our dinners were just marginal. Won't go back. For really great Chinese make the drive to Waukesha at and go to Golden Gate Restaurant. Never been disappointed there.

We live about 45 minutes from here but definitely worth the drive. My wife is Asian so she really knows her food, this is by far the best Chinese restaurant in the entire area. Nothing fancy but the food is always top quality. Used to be a little hard to get in to as the place was too small, not... More
