“Decent food and service - Dirty Linen”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2011

The facade is absolutely enchanting and has a distinct mandarin feel! The first floor has tables clustered together and the aroma or rather stench of sea food (fish) wafted in from the kitchen as we took our seats on the first floor which we immediately vacated. (Our family is purely vegetarian). We shifted to the second floor which is more spacious and is right next to the bar and did not have the pungent sea food aroma thankfully. The table linen and ware is average and not to the status you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We had to ask to be provided with a knife? :( .The food was another matter. We started with hot and sour sweet corn soup and tomato, spinach and egg drop soup, both were good, though a tad bland and needed seasoning.
Drinks: Long Island Iced Tea was decent. The mocktails are good, the best of the lot being Italian Cmooch which has a ginger flavour combined with coke which gives it a bitter sweet tang along with brown sugar. There was a started which employed red chillies which was phenomenal. The dimsums left a lot to be desired and you can get momo's right outside fortune cookie at 35 bucks a plate as against the 350 here for 6 pathetic pieces. The hakka noodles and tomato and mushroom fried rice were good. The vegetable manchurian was just average. The brocolli, spinach and vegetables in a black bean base was about average. The dessert of date pancakes with Vanilla Ice Cream was good, but I could determine a hint of fish in the fried pancakes which was a slight turn off. The service was extremely fast and prompt even though the restaurant was packed, but I don't expect to ask for chopsticks and a knife in a fine dining restaurant and definitely expect clean linen!

“Fortune Cookie - Pathetic food, OK ambience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2011

Fortune Cookie has been THE most disappointing experience for me in the recent past. For one, how generally restraunts define a dish and how Fortune Cookie defines a dish are poles apart.
- I ordered Singapore rice noodles only to be Vermicelli.
- Garlic Noodles turned out to freshly boiled noodles. No flavor, too soggy.
- In the month of May, the AC was not working
- The waiter needed to be explained every order more than once and looked rookies and seemed understaffed

My Verdict: Avoid, there are better restraunts out there in the same vicinity

“A very good experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2010

If you want to gorge on some good chinese food this is one of the best restaurants in Noida. It is having a very good Chinese ambience, the staff is very polite and well mannered. The service and ambience are very good. Now coming to the most important thing, food. The food here is somewhat less spicy, as good chinese food should be. It is having a very little Indian touch, and is awesome to taste. Go here if you want to have a good chinese food and not Indianised chinese food :). A very lovely place for a nice romantic and quiet date.
