Intended to have Japanese but had to wait for them to open when we noticed Fortune Fountain was already open so in we went for Yum Char. We weren't disappointed, friendly staff and delicious food and quite full. Look forward to returning back here again sometime soon.

Went out with the intention of having Fish & Chips, however by the time we arrived at the end of the road we spotted this restaurant and decided to give it a go. When we went there was only one other table occupied and we wondered had we made a mistake. We were however glad we had because the food... More

Was introduced to this place by a friend and must confess the food was really nice yum cha. Also ordered 3 a-la-carte dishes that were super tasty. Although a bit pricey I must say. Served fresh and hot by the owners themselves and a couple of polite staff. This joint was full and we were just lucky to find the... More

During a business trip to Takapuna came across this beauty. We had a banquet. The owner Stella looked after us so well. One of our party was gluten intolerant and was catered for. Let me just say that I have had Peking duck from many places (Flower Drum, Melbourne included). The Peking duck here was 11/10. Outstanding. The crispy skin... More

We ate here on Thursday night.. they let us in early to save us being out in the cold and rain. The food was very fresh and tasty... they were fast with their service and couldn't do enough for us.. Thank you.

The North Shore doesn't have a lot of reasonable Yum Cha restaurants. The Fortune Fountain is a pretty good start. The food is good standard fare with all my favourites and the price is reasonable. I've only ever been to this restaurant on the weekend and it is always full. As with most Yum Cha restaurants, the tables are packed... More

Popped in for dinner. Lots of family groups which was a good sign. Food was super fresh. Spring rolls were the best. Over all good food and reasonable price

Great chinese restaurant in the heart of Takapuna. Friendly staff and always great food. Get in early if your planning on having yum cha as it gets busy.

We have been to Fortune Fountain many times since it opened and it is time to give it credit for hard work to deliver great Yum cha and very good cantonese dishes. Most weeks we will, as Takapuna locals, enjoy either Yum Cha, a meal or one of their very good takeaway dishes. Years living, working and travelling in Asia... More

Three of us went for yum Char lunch on a Saturday - I have been to Yum Cha several times before so knew what to expect. The items offered were of the usual Yum Cha fare and were OK however the service was extremely pushy and the lady who appeared to be in charge was very unfriendly and pushing the... More
