As a resident of Brooklyn Heights, I have been eating here for years and this is the best in Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo. The food is fresh and delicious and the new menu features healthy dishes, steamed dishes and the usual Chinese dishes, in addition to great specialties, and the place is nicely decorated. The newest thing is that Dim Sum is now served on Saturday and Sunday until 4:00PM in addition to the regular lunch menu, and no other Chinese restaurant in the area offers this. Food portions are good and fairly priced. Delivery is fast and everything comes hot. Service in the restaurant is good and you can linger as long as you want. Wine and beer is served. As a big fan of Chinese food, I would certainly recommend Fortune House, and if you like Dim Sum, you don't have to travel to Chinatown!

I've lived in DUMBO/Vinegar Hill area for 3 1/2 years and often order from Fortune House. After today I will no longer need their services thanks to the impatient woman who answers their phone. They are fast, consistent with quality and overall taste even their delivery guys are super nice. After dealing with a huffing/sighing/snappy phone person these things no longer matter. Thanks Fortune House, it was nice while it lasted.

It could easily be a new regular spot for us. My husband and I have lived in the Heights a few years and just never walked in until last week. We ate in, and it was cute decor, fast service and a little better than your average neighborhood Chinese restaurant. It wasn't gourmet, but definitely tasted great and was the comfort food we ordered. We ordered the basil chicken, spicy peanut wontons, general toss soy protein, and hot and sour soup. The bill came to around $30. Go, eat and be happy to know the place is clean and a solid option on Henry if you don't want to drop a lot of money for dinner one night. The wonton soup broth is pretty awesome too.

Fortune House was once the best Chinese food restaurant in all of BK Heights (there are not many, but it was still high quality food). However, since it's been under new management, the food is not the same. I ordered takeout the other day for dinner and the amount of food I received in reflection of the price was disappointing.

You get what you pay for, its good tasting food. The service thou is not good. If you're looking for a call-in and pickup then its the best bang for the buck, but if you're looking to dine in i suggest somewhere with better service.

While the lunch portions are not great(you get what you pay for), dinners are great and portions are generous. Brown rice is always available and served in a different bowl. There has been a recent turnover of watressess, but they are all polite and efficient. Still the best place to eat for a reasonably priced dinner, with discount alcohol drinks.

You get what you get for 6 bucks. The food is 'ok' for what you pay. You get ALOT of rice not enough meat, but then again... 5.55... Also, the service is very bad. I asked for sauce, finished my meal; payed came back a week later; asked for sauce again finished payed and still they never brought the sauce...
