Laughable at best. It might be the only Chinese in Brooklyn Heights, but if you are a tourist, hail a cab and pls head to Chinatown in the city, or just head to Flushing... So Fortune House has pretty terrible food. Turnip cake was soggy-greasy. Ok flavor, but the texture was too mushy. My partner's order of Szechuan spicy dumplings... More

This place reminds me of the Chinese restaurants that we go to in Maryland. We stop and eat here every time we go to see our daughter. The portions are small but the food is great.

Fortune House has changed ownership many times in the decades i've been eating here and it gets better with every change. Fortune house is an unpretentious, modestly priced, Chinese restaurant that looks like it fell out of the 1960s but with top quality cuisine. It's located a very short walk from Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park and DUMBO in... More

This is a good neighborhood restaurant for ok, inexpensive Chinese food. It is a comfortable room which may be a good destination for tourists who are going to visit Brooklyn Bridge Park or the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

The old days of large portion restaurant food has gone. Even the amount by today's restaurant is till generous enough, especially the Chinese style food, we can't share a plate of noodle for example. The key is, the quality of food has not declined. Fortune has done reasonably well by striking good balance in portion size and quality. The porridge... More

For many NYC visitors the challenge/inherent opportunity is to get beyond Manhattan. Yes, it's maybe a ten minute walk from DUMBO (heading towards downtown Brooklyn). But this is a local, family style, low cost, excellent Chinese food restaurant. Very unpretentious but friendly, lots of local neighborhood ambiance, If this little place was in my Charlotte hometown it'd be the go... More

Very good local Chinese restaurant, one of the best in Brooklyn Heights. They have a few seasonal specials and some that aren't necessarily on the menu. They will make anything you ask. they do not have checked corn soup on the menu, but the make one of the best I have had, just need to ask.

We live in Park Slope and come to the Heights to eat at the Fortune House restaurant. We have many Chinese restaurants in our neighborhood, and none of them are as good as the Fortune House & some of them are just not good. The food at Fortune House is consistently delicious, they have a huge menu and lunch specials... More

Bad service. Unwelcoming. Unfriendly. Not a place I would recommend. The staff were rude, in particular the female manager or owner.
