You wouldn’t walk into this place if you didn’t know that delicious authentic Chinese food lay within. But New Fortune is one of the the places to go for authentic Dim Sum in the area.

It reminds me of the large family restaurants in China and the customers are in the know for great food. The best time to go is Sunday morning or perhaps after church. You might have to wait a little, by they turn the tables pretty quick.

Rolling carts of steaming food roll by and you just point to what looks good. There are English signs on some carts and the servers have some ability to explain the dishes. But the best is to have an adventurous attitude and see what you like.

They have plenty of duck and chicken, dumplings, veggies and other dishes. It’s easy to put a meal together. They mark your dishes as you order on a tally sheet and add it up at the end.

Service is quick and a little brusk.

Delicious, authentic but don’t go for the elegant decor (cause it isn’t).

Been coming here for year, and am rarely disappointed. The Dim Sum is wonderful. Two point of constructive criticism: The decor is a bit dates; the place could use a rennovation. Second, theor non-Dim Sum service lacks the "wow" factor of their dim Sum. Recommend calling ahead or checking their web site to confirm the Dim Sum hours.

We ate here for Christmas dinner, as we were visiting DC/Gaithersburg. Vegan, vegetarians and omnivore were all happy.
We had bean curd in brown sauce, broccoli and mushrooms and mushrooms with greens. We also had an order of steamed dumplings.
Servings are meant to be shared and 4 orders for four people was way too much food. :)
Everything was delicious and the service was very good. It’s a busy place with multiple large dining rooms. Many large families were dining here, most were Chinese.

I've eaten here for many years and it's the most convenient and as authentic Hong Kong as you can get in Gaithersburg, Maryland vicinity unless you want to go to a smaller restaurant with less variety. It's a big enough place to go with friends or have a function in and they do have a nice variety with faithful adherence to Hong Kong style dishes. Over the years they have been trying to change up the interior and making it cleaner with more ambiance. I've been to many dim sum places in the US and Canada and the interior of this place is on par or above many restaurants in this category - which is not necessarily fancy or spectacular but you mostly go there for the food. Go on the weekends when they have more push cart offerings for dim sum. You can order take out lunch on weekdays and the prices are not cheap but pretty acceptable.
