Lots of good food and good price for food. Five of us at dinner for about $70, including a 20% tip on our bill. We had some much left over after we were full that we could have eaten our dinner a second time. HIGHLY...More

Set right on the Southernmost end of Chinatown on S. Wentworth, House of Fortune does not boast fancy decor, but the service is great and the food is delicious. Place was recommended to me by a colleague who ordered an excellent Peking Duck from the...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
