The impression is mixed from visiting this Chinese restaurant opened since 1994. The food was good and sometimes very good. At the same time the service was disappointing with a frosty reception staff, not offering a single smile, very long waiting for food and even a mistake in the bill. The soup we ordered, was not served, but was duly... More

Always heard that fortune was one of the best in town. Not my experience. I ordered crab Rangoon which were nicely fried but the inside was just sweet white goopy sauce with no sign of crab. It just oozes out of Rangoon like sweetened condensed milk. The sesame chicken was even more disappointing. It was so sweet and goopy. Sesame... More

Waited almost 30 minutes for a table for 2. People waiting out the door. Finally got a table and asked about the dim sum menu

Sunday night dinner decided to have Chinese. We after calling to ask if we needed reservations, we were told they were not busy and there was no wait. When we arrived there were lots of people standing in the lobby. Apparently, it was a large party, just trying to be seated. We were seated right away at a table for... More

I love the sea food soup, no one makes it creamy like this place. Everything is really good and it's always hard to choose what to eat.

Great Authentic Chinese food for the Milwaukee area. For the majority, you can tell the food is fresh and just cooked. My crispy chicken tasted aged like it was in the refrifgerator for few days. I do recommend this place. I love their beef and noodle dish, black pepper beef and seafood soup.

When with my son's wife's family who live in Milwaukee, you go where they say it's the best! My first reaction when I walked in confirmed that it was probably going to be good - Chinese people eating there. I certainly wasn't disappointed - crispy skin chicken, szechwan chicken, singaporean noodles, fried rice, and a few other dishes. All in... More

I have high expectations of this restaurant as it is my favorite! Same waitress and same cook but food a little off tonight. I didn't get what I ordered and ended up with some sprinkling of noodles (waitress says by accident) in my food. If I wanted noodles I would have ordered it. It won't stop me from coming back...

The fortune is a great Chinese eatery. We moved away from Milwaukee over 8 years ago and decided to stop by again. The walnut shrimp and the pineapple fried rice are top notch. The potstickers are hand wrapped, not the frozen ones other places serve. There are two menus. One is a westerner style menu, and the other is more... More

The food here is by far the best outside of Hong Kong in Milwaukee! It is hard to beat Chicago and New York but for our small town attitude this place holds the light when it comes to most authentic choices! Here you get the American menu unless you ask for the Chinese menu! No the menu is not in... More
