“Absolutely THE Best !!!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

This is NOT your typical Chinese Food Bufet .... There is a wide selection of foods available both American classics like fried chicken and pizza & Asian classics like chow mein and BBQ spare-ribs as well as a generous sushi & sashimi selection and a choose your own selection and they'll grill it with your choice of sauces. There are plenty of fresh vegetable, salad, and seafood selections and manage to save room for dessert as there is a wide selection of fresh fruits, cakes, and my personal favorite the ice cream bar.

I think even the pickiest of eaters will find something to enjoy at the Fortune Buffet. They do offer lunch and dinner selections. The dinner selections do include crab legs and more seafood items, The key to enjoying the Fortune Buffet is to arrive late for lunch or early for dinner as it does get crowded. The staff is VERY accommodating and I have to add this in Please, Please, Please remember to tip them as for some strange reason people feel that they don't need to tip because it is a buffet, but these waitresses and waiters really do work hard with your drink orders and removing your many ( and you will have many) empty and near empty plates.

“Always busy but worth the wait!”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

A large selection of food and they area always replenishing.....We love the crab legs ....great selection of fruit and deserts.....but the main meal is the best wth a large selection again.....Only gripe would be that the staff speak/understand english more. They are like robots! Work Work Work.....we come here almost every weekend when we come down the shore.....havent been able to find another place as reasonable and with as much selection. Will continue to come here!

“Too busy and crowded”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

While perhaps better than most Chinese food buffets, we found this place is not worth the wait or local "hype". It is too crowded and there is often a wait to get in and when all was said and done, we left there and thought we could have had a better meal in less time, effort and aggrivation at a local Chinese restaurant, even if it would have been more costly. Sometimes you do get what you pay for. If you don't mind waiting to get into a buffet, then enjoy. But, when I want Chinese, I don't want to wait unless I'm going to a fine Chinese restaurant that is truly worth the wait.

“Worth The Wait”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

After reading reviews we did not heed at we can at prime time and had to wait about 45 minutes the food was great. So on our next visit with my daughter's family we where a total of 7 and we arrived before the rush about 4:30 on a Saturday. What was great there was a large food choice for all our different reqirements from 4 to 70 year olds and for the pickie eaters. Yes they turn tables but our drinks where always filled and plates removed. Great Value
