“Open Kitchen and Good BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

The Sun Fortune is a clean, bright, space with an open kitchen. When you enter ducks, bbq pork, and bbq chickens catch your eye hanging in the busy kitchen space. We opt for a bbq duck appetizer, a sizzling seafood dish and Singapore noodle. Everything is prepared to order. So dishes arrive when they are ready. The duck is tasty, if somewhat over cooked. The seafood dish does not rely on squid to fill the plate but instead is a generous portion of scallops, shrimp and kiwi mussels. The Singapore noodle benefits from teh bbq in the back, the pork in it is a standout. There are some unique menu items here - Russian borsch is a notable oddity. Peking duck is available without advanced order, but only after 4:30.

“We really lucked out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were hungry for Chinese late on a Friday evening, and spotted this restaurant by their sign. We decided to try it, and it was delightful. The service was spectacular, and the food was quite good. We ordered both old favorites and some new items, and we were pleased at the quality and quantity. The final bill was quite reasonable. The inside was lovely and comfortable, as well. Worth adding to your list!

“So glad we tried it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

Travelling up and down Pembina hwy there are so many Asian restaurants to choose from.
We wanted to try somewhere different so we decided to try Sun Fortune which is close to jysk. Wonderful surprise!
Service was excellent-everyone was so friendly-food was amazing and price was better than most. This is our new favorite Chinese restaurant!

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

Sun Fortune is the place we go when we want Chinese food, we usually are there about once every other week, and we are never disappointed. The menu has something for everyone including vegans. Some items we like are... spicey shrimp with ground pork ... it's terrific, we prefer to have the shrimp shelled making for less mess and more flavour on the shrimp. The scrambled eggs and shrimp may seem like an unlikely combination but it is really worth sampling, great for a light dinner. Spicey round bean is a nice vegetable dish but ask for less spicey if you are not fond of too much heat. A good way to rate a Chinese restaurant is how well the pan fried beef ho fun is done, and Sun Fortune does it very well. Staff is efficient and quick, and can give you menu suggestions. Don't be afraid to step away from the mainstream foods like chicken fried rice, and sweet and sour chicken balls, the menu is extensive and after all remember " variety is the spice of life"

“Good Chinese for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

We were in Winnipeg for the Canadian Junior track & Field event, and wanted some Chinese food. We saw the ratings on Tripadvisor and thought we would try it out. The food was good and you could see into the kitchen. As far as clean goes, this restaurant is similar to other Chinese restaurants. The service was a bit slow and we were out of water for some time. Hence the lower rating on the service. Please keep in mind they were busy. Overall I enjoyed the meal for the money and would come back again.
