Restaurant details
Reviewed August 19, 2012

I was sorry to hear that someone had had a bad experience at House of Fortune and that's why I had to write a review. Over the last 25 years I have eaten here well over a hundred times. In fact, we eat here (or get take out) so often they know us by name. Our kids grew up together. But we keep coming here for the food, not just the service. Their hot and sour soup, fried dumplings, kung pao chicken, shredded beef, moo shi pork, fried rice are all reliably tasty and well-prepared. I could go on; we have never had a bad meal here. And the prices are reasonable.

Please don't let one bad review keep you away!

All restaurants screw up. It's how they recover from their mistakes that sets them apart. I've eaten at this eatery over the years and it's been fair to good. Last night we ordered appetizers orange beef and General Tso shrimp. Everything was way overcooked some pieces burnt. The sauce which was the same for both had been scorched and had a terrible taste. When we complained the waitress just disappeared and another presented our check. What makes this even worse is that it is a family restaurant which includes these waitresses The bill was $42 before tip for a meal we did not eat If you choose to eat here pray that your food does not get screwed up because there will be no recourse. You've been warned.

When I lived in NYC, I had my go to places in Chinatown. While I have had good Chinese food around the country, this place by far is the best I have eaten outside of those Chinatown havens. It is an amazing jewel. Nicest people you every want to meet. Good prices. Out of this world food.
