By far the worst Chinese cuisine ! My husband is sick - do not eat here. We were tired and didn’t want to go out so we thought Chinese would be a good choice to order in. My husband got General Tsu and I got...More

Since my last Fortune House review, I've returned often and am even more impressed than before. On my most recent dinner visit I chose Garlic Shrimp and was happy that I did so. Almost a dozen shrimp, done to perfection with broccoli and other vegetables...More

Not special, just good Chinese, fair price, below average service, clean. Good buffet choices (veggies, 3 soups, several meats, rolls, ribs, dim sum,). For $10 per pax, hard to beat.

Just OK Buffet Lunch with obligatory selections, nothing to write home about. Edible, but not fabulous. Those with hearty appetites will appreciate unlimited trips to the Buffet.
