Loved it. We took our 3 kids, who love standard Chinese (ie buffet) and they found some things on the menu that appealed to them. We had tempura, edamame, fried rice, some vegetarian sushi rolls, and a couple main dishes. It was more food than we needed, but lots of great choices.

Celebrated my daughter's belated Birthday celebration on Friday night. The venue has lots of parking and the reception wait was very quick. The ambiance of the wood partition ceiling makes the place dim and perfect for conversation. The menu has lots of options. I noted that the spelling of shrimp was wrong and brought it to the attention of the waiter. We ordered appetizer of spring rolls to start our dinner. Our main dishes were mixed vegetable lomi, Fried rice, tofu in black bean sauce, and Shrimp in honey walnut. The service was quick and in less than 5 minutes we were enjoying the spring roll in plum sauce. The main dish came ten minutes later and was a delight. We had an enjoyable dinner and delicious meal with leftovers. The bill was reasonable for 4 people of $60.00 plus tip. The waiter was courteous and attended to our needs diligently. I will come back here again.

Quick, inexpensive and fresh! The crispy orange chicken is very good. A surprising find based in Los Alamitos.

Friendly service upon entry, bathroom so so, small place. Attractive menu, reasonably priced. BUT no big deal. Just regular Chinese food. Nothing GREAT. We had the spring rolls, orange chicken,Sha Cha chicken, house fried rice and spicy green beans.
Everything tasted the same. We went to this place as a choice by the birthday girl.
She likes Chinese. This is suppose to be a bistro so we really expected some chef specials other then American Chinese

Trying to keep an open mind, we have sampled Fortune Cookies three times -- twice eating in, and this last (and it WILL be the last) was take out. For just over $30, we got two entrees and an order of spring rolls. Strike One - over priced. The spring rolls were good. I wish I had just ordered a bunch of those. The Orange Chicken was so tough that it was like shoe leather in some spots. The sauce was good -- I ended up scraping it onto my rice and eating that. Strike Two -- tough chicken. The shrimp my husband had was bland, and his brown rice was hard and kernelly. He ended up eating my white rice. Strike Three -- brown rice not edible. So, to recap: for over $30, we got four spring rolls, one edible side of rice, some orange sauce and some bland shrimp. You're out, Fortune Cookies -- we won't be back.
