Five Luck Restaurant

I've become a big fan of Five Luck. Two things that are beyond dispute are the fact that they make the best fried wontons of anyone, and that their chicken is far better than places that charge twice as much. If you order their hot & spicy chicken or chicken & broccoli you'll be amazed at how tender their chicken is. I can't comment on their delivery but when I do pickup, the food is ready really fast. Very nice owners too.

I live in the area and used to get food from here regularly. Today I ordered sweet & sour shrimp and fried rice. It took 30 minutes to be delivered and the shrimp was in a bag and there was a very small container of sauce. Not what I have experienced in the past and not worth the money.

I ordered take out from Five Luck. They said it would be delivered in 20 minutes. It was delivered in 40 minutes. We ordered the chicken Pad Thai and the orange chicken. The orange chicken was fine. But my friend wasn't able to eat the waxy pad thai. Bottom line: don't order the pad thai.

Steamed vegetable dumplings. No sauce. Shrimp toast. No sauce. Crab rangoon. No sauce. Really? And quality above was sub-par. Not worth it.

Remember the days prior to living in New York City. The Chinese food was greasy, cheap, always made your stomach hurt, but put the biggest smile on your face. That is exactly this place. It's the perfect. Cheap, overcooked, and absolutely delicious. I don't recommend this if you are looking for gourmet chinese with organic chicken and candied walnuts...no no... this is a night of beers and south park. I like the generals and the lake shrimp. Comes with A LOT too :)

I've been ordering from here for more than 2 years, and I've tried all the local Chinese places. The food at Five Luck is consitently good Chinese take out, but not excellent. Have you ever had CONSISTENTLY excellent Chinese take out? If so please share. In the meantime, I am happy to keep ordering consistently GOOD Chinese take out from Five Luck.

We ordered our dinner - soup and two entrees at 5:00, and by 6:30, we had called back twice asking what was taking so long?!? The Wantons were definitely sub-par. Both my Girlfriend and I looked at each other with quizzical looks - Do you taste something weird about these wantons? The General Tso's was actually pretty decent, but the Shrimp with Chinese Veg. was too salty and the vegetables were overcooked. Even the rice left us wanting... All in all, the food was definitely NOT worth waiting an hour and a half, and we'll definitely not order from here again.
