On a recommendation from our hotel, we decided to try this restaurant and came away very happy that we did.

If your idea of ‘good’ Chinese food is chow main, chop suey, sweet and sour pork, and deep fried egg rolls, this place is probably not for you.

If, however, you’re looking for a more authentic Chinese menu, Fortune Star would be a good choice. As with any restaurant, it helps to know what to order and the waitstaff was very helpful, even though we’re well versed in Chinese food. There are several items on the menu that are hot and spicy, but the chefs will accommodate your desire for more or less heat. If you have a special request, like more garlic, they are also happy to make it so.

We started with pepper salted squid as an appetizer. It arrived quickly and was perfectly done...very light and crispy. Could have used just a bit more seasoning. We also ordered garlic baby book choy, a noodle dish with chicken, and a seafood curry dish. Yum! All the dishes were more than generous and we had plenty left over for a road picnic the following day.

If Fortune Star was in my home town, I’d be a regular customer.

Fortune Star is an over all excellent restaurant: food, service, ambiance. The host/wait staff are very friendly, attentive, and polite. Water was refilled before the glass was empty, and the server checked back at our table more than once during the meal. The food is well prepared and delicious. Even the fortune cookies, which in most Chinese eateries are pre-wrapped and taste like cardboard, were good. I think they may be made on site. The menu is extensive, offering many dishes not usually found in most Chinese restaurants. I am sure the ingredients are fresh. A wonderful experience. We shall certainly return.
Don't let the outside of the building put you off. The entrance is inside a small indoor group of shops, and the decor is charming. We were lucky enough to get a parking spot right on Washington in front of the door, but there is also parking and an entrance in back. Please try Fortune Star!

A surprisingly good Chinese restaurant. Two decent sized restaurant seating areas, as well as take out. We did take out and there was a lot of food, all very good, at typical Chinese food take out prices.

Love the food! Most of the staff were friendly and accommodating. Clean place. Big portions. Order the house fried rice. It’s good!
