Don't let the fact that this place is in a strip mall stop you from going inside. We ate at New Fortune for lunch. I never had Dim Sum and this was a treat. The carts visited our table frequently and we enjoyed the steamy goodness of the dishes. The restaurant is huge! I understand that weddings and other ceremonies... More

This Hong Kong Chinese restaurant specializes in big wedding receptions and parties. They have one room for those and an attached dining room for regular customers. Walking in, it looked like everything was about to fall down. The carpets are dirty, marks on the wall, and it has the feel of a high school gym. The men's bathroom looked like... More

I found my fortune at New Fortune Chinese Restaurant in Gaithersburg, Maryland, recently. I also found friendship and a delicious choice of dim sum at this restaurant which was founded by owner Tony Tran almost 20 years ago. That's America for you. Start a restaurant and find your fortune; at least I hope Mr. Tran has been fortunate enough to... More

My family always comes here for the good food and the fast service. We went on a weekday when the dining area is cut into half because of less people to serve. The side we were on smelled like someone urinated on the carpet. The carpet or the curtains seemed to not have been changed/ cleaned in a long while.... More

Food was good, service attentive without being cloying. Kept my water glass full, which is a big deal for me. Steamed dumpling very good.

I grew up in a family that enjoys good food and when it comes to authentic chinese restaurant in Maryland, new fortune is one of a few. The taste is like travelling to any asian country and you can have dimsum anytine of the day. Hargaw (shrimp dumplings) is my daughter's favorite. And according tomy 9yearold, new dortune is the...

It was quite empty. Only three tables being served. We enjoyed the dim sum. It was a nice surprise in that area. I'd like to go on a weekend to see what the full dim sum offerings are but was very satisfied with what there was. Service was wonderful and everyone speaks good enough English.

We had a large family get together here while staying at the Hyatt House Gaithersburg, it is within walking distance, and the food was fantastic! Would highly recommend!

We went there a few times and this time we went for dim sum. The place is always crowded. It does seat a lot of peope and there's never a wait on a Sunday morning. I've been to many restaurants for dim sum and this was very disappointing. Even though the selection was good the food was never hot. I... More

I have eaten here twice when visiting this area. My friend and I both enjoy Asian food and love eggplant which is not offered at many restaurants. I know they serve large parties, but leave plenty of space for other diners. The one thing I really noticed is how many of the other diners are oriental. I know this is... More
