Best in Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Bklyn – This place has the best and most reasonable dinner around. If you hate fast Chinese service, just ask to slow it down, and you can linger over inexpensive drinks and wine. There are so many great dishes, from the whole fish, to the fresh dumplings, roast pork the duck, great hot and sour and special soups, and beyond the usual traditional dishes. The "non-american" chinese food should be tried for the adventurous-just ask the owner. The take-out is way above the usual. They recently redecorated, so it joins the other nice restaurants on Henry Street as a destination. I know it's just Chinese food, but it really is a great place to go out for dinner without breaking your budget-try it!
Great Food, Excellent Neighborhood Restaurant – We dine here frequently, either as take-out, delivery, or dine in. I've always been happy with this place, I like the location, the service is great, and I've never had to wait for a table. The food quality is good, very tastey and plentiful. I've eaten at a lot of places where the meats are fatty or stringy, and the beef and chicken here are good, always cooked well, not overcooked, not stringy. The vegetables are fresh, broccoli is very green, crisp, not wilted or mushy. The stringbeans are great as a side dish! Havn't had many of their spicy dishes, but their chicken with walnuts is good, chicken with cashews as well, beef & roccoli is great. Delivery is quick, prices are very reasonable, and table service is nice. I've never felt rushed, even after a very long evening in the dining room, always have a courteous server and the tables are nicely spacd apart so you don't feel like you're sitting on top of the next table.
This is a great restaurant to have in the neighborhood. They're friendly, they serve good food at a good price and you can always get a table. If you want fancy food you might want to go elswhere. if you want family friendly atmosphere and a wallet friendly menu, this is the place for you. We love Fortune House!
In fact, I'm headed their now...
As to the above poster who was ill... well written. sorry to hear that you were sick, I've never had that problem after eating here (3+ nights a week!!)
Cute restaurant on henry street, near theater. – I've always wondered what it was like to recieve an upset stomach from a meal and lucky me I was able to experience it! If my evening wasn't spent in the bathroom, I'm sure I would have been dreaming about the delicious tea that was served to me, and the generous portions of sweet and sour chicken. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was courteous and prompt, just beware of the reprocussions.
User review by literaryradical – Fantastic food, great service and AMAZING value. We stumbled upon this place and were so pleased with it. We even got two orders of the fabulous sesame noodles to go! So cheap and wonderful-- plus our cups of tea were always full and the waitress was friendly.
Best overall Chinese takeout in Brooklyn Heights – There's not any superlative Chinese restaurants in Brooklyn Heights. Fortune House is the best of the bunch overall -- one of the cheapest, with consistently good food and fast delivery. I've never eaten in here, but I've ordered takeout almost a dozen times and have never been disappointed.
