This is an old restaurant that closed and now opened with a new owners and new name. The good thing is the owners have the old chefs so the food is so good. The restaurant has been refurnished and cleaned and it is very nice and comfortable. The food is really good for dim sum, as there are many good... More

Came here on a Thursday for lunch dim sum. Service was slow, only one dim sum dish at a time, so not good for when in a hurry. The food was fresh and made to order, specially the shrimp har gow. My only suggestions would be for background music for atmosphere and for a little faster order turnaround. Place is... More

Here with daughter and hubby for dimsum. Had not been here for a few months -checking out whether it's the same or gotten better. We were stupid cause instead of getting here earlier we opted to come at 12:15 the height of dimsum rush. To make matters worse small parties like us have to wait longer. We have been waiting...

I went with my family today. We placed our order. The owner approached us with one of our order and stated that you had a problem before and I wanted to make sure that everything is ok and wanted to sit next to us, observe us while we are eating. We tried to explain to him what happened 8 month... More

Gourmet Inspirations is a reincarnation of Good Fortune which was one of the DC area's first dim sum restaurants. Nicely redecorated this is the best dim sum restaurant in the Maryland suburbs, with big, flavorful dumplings and good service from rolling carts. Enjoy!

Another dim sum restaurant in Maryland that is getting good reviews and notices and for good reason. We went there this past weekend and we were impressed by the brightness, decor and cleanliness of the place - that is a plus in our books! Service was prompt and attentive and the dim sum carts came by steady during our whole... More

Found the menu to be extremely comprehensive (4 different soft shell crab entrees). Those dishes with breading were very light and crispy, not sodden like I've experienced in other similar restaurants. But if you want to go there for lunch, the dim sum is very popular, so it tends to be crowded and there is a lengthy wait if you... More

Newly renovated with nice decor. Service and food was good. We had walnut shrimp, Beijing duck, mixed seafood w/ veg. French cut beef (it was O.K.) I wouldn't order this again, I've had better elsewhere. Overall, I gave it 4 stars for cleanliness, presentation of food, and courtesy of service. Owners son spoke good English in describing dishes.

We had dim sum here and it was quite tasty. There was a nice selection and items were served hot as they are cooked to order. The service was good. There is a parking lot close by, well within walking distance.

Long time patron before new management and renovation. Food is still good. Interior much cleaner and welcoming. But I really missed the excellent customer service of previous waitstaff and management. If they are trying to cut cost of washing utensils it is the wrong way to go. Only chopsticks provided. Asked for spoons, the waitress brought one. Ask for multiple... More

Dear Customers, My name is Andrew Quach, and I am one of the managers at Gourmet Inspirations. I lived in the Wheaton area for 18 years and have eaten at Good Fortune many times. My partners and I are very aware of the history and connection that the restaurant had within the community, so an important goal for us is to work hard to maintain the same consistency and quality of food that Good Fortune provided to its customers for the past 30 years. To assist us in our efforts, we have been fortunate to retain the services of the executive chef, chef de cuisine, and dim sum chef, all of whom were a part of the previous kitchen staff and have been working together for over 20 years. We hope this will allow us to continue serving authentic Cantonese Cuisine and Dim Sum to all our customers for many years to come. We have undergone an extensive renovation project in order to update the facility and provide a more contemporary environment. Our name and decor have changed but our commitment to customer satisfaction will not. If at any time during your dining experience an issue or problem comes up please inform me or one of my partners (Steve or Kathy) and we will take care of the situation. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you in the near future.
