“Tasteless take away”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Ordered take away to finish our holiday. Food was very very bland, ( black bean sauce)the beef although plentiful was odd tasting, very fatty. Our first take away ( normally eat in) Definately not the same standards as the restaurant...or they have a new chef......will not hurry back. Shame.

“65th Birthday”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

7 of us got together for a birthday celebration, we had fantastic service, the food was well cooked and delicious and when I told the lady it was my birthday the extra service that followed exceeded my expectations-a thoroughly enjoyable night. Thank you very much.

“Fantastic Food and Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

We visited last night and had a set meal. The food was fantastic and the portions were huge. We even received 3 main courses although there were only 2 of us. The staff were extremely friendly and also checked with each course if we were ready or if we would like a break. That was great as one of my pet hates is for courses to arrive before the previous one has been completed. We will definitely return.

“Lovely chinese food!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Went on a Saturday night. Had the mixed starter for two which was all very nice!
For mains we had two sizzling dishes, the prawns and the cantonese fillet steak, both of which were delicious!
Had a bottle of the rose wine too and the whole meal came to under £45.00! Very reasonable!
Would definately return!

“Fantastic atmosphere, food and service”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I'll be succinct; Fortune Star is one of the best Chinese dining experiences I've ever had. This little gem might not be incredibly refined or cutting edge, but the entire place has a rich, authentic feel and family atmosphere which really adds to the dining experience. The service was fantastic - the manager really made us feel at home, while the waiters were attentive and friendly. The decor, music and general atmosphere was warm and inviting, and everything one could want in a traditional Chinese restaurant. Last but not least, the food was both great tasting and great value. All in all, I couldn't recommend Fortune Star more highly, especially given the price!
