The fortune cookie was quite good Chinese food, however the King & Thai was outstanding, they have a Thai chef who produced top quality authentic dishes

We went there to try some Chinese food and we were not disappointed. Though at that time the restaurant was empty, the service was good. We did not stay in Luxor for long, else we would have definitely gone back there. Highly recommended.

Visited The Fortune Cooke Chinese Restaurant tonight. Had the Sizzling Beef in pepper sauce. The flavor was excellent - spicy but not too hot. The hot and sour soup was as good as I have had anywhere. Will definitely go back.
