We ate here on a quiet Tuesday but the staff made us feel so welcome. The food was outstanding with lots of choice and I would highly recommend. They also cater for vegans and other dietary requirements.

The food was excellent , best Chinese food I've ever tasted. The lady who looked after us called Julie as well the young gentleman catered for our every need and even gave us a lesson in holding chopsticks. A must do if your ever visiting Lancaster.

My partner & I have just had a take away from here to celebrate my birthday and it was one of the worst meals we've ever has!! Crispy chicken wasn't remotely crispy, the pork was mostly fat and the whole meal was bland. Cannot understand how this place can be so highly rated, we definitely won't be returning

Went last Sunday for an evening meal with the mrs, been before and always love it. Sunday was no exception. Fantastic food.. spare ribs are amazing. Crispy Cantonese chicken was delicious and the same goes for the chicken satay. The service is second to none, really attentive with a very personal touch. The staff cannot do enough for you. Will...

Good homely food. Decor was dated but somehow added to the appeal of the place, service by family members was discreet and excellent. Value for money and good something rare these days.

Stopped here on way back to Glasgow from Manchester airport. Not sure if it is typical of the Chinese restaurants in Lancaster because it is the only one I have been too. It reminded me of going out for dinner in the 80s. Food was nice and plentiful but done differently than I'm used to, for example the aromatic duck... More

A little retro gem in Lancaster; wonderful and tasty food with excellent service, attentive but not intrusive. If you love genuine Chinese food this is the place to come. It's always a good sign when customers are Chinese also!

The service here was excellent, however I thought the food was very average. I ordered king prawns with mushrooms which was quite bland and watery. Would come back to try other dishes though.

Another brilliant visit to Fortune Star, lovely food quickly served and very attentive staff. Can't understand the people who don't give this restaurant great reviews, never fails to step up to the mark as far as I'm concerned.
