Like the restaurant to which it is most often compared, Ping's, this is a very high class Chinese banquet restaurant specializing in extremely fresh seafood. As in, the fishes are swimming around in aquariums and are bumped off when you order them. If all you got was seafood at Fuleen, though, you would be missing out: the biggest difference between it and it's rival is the presence of fabulous meat dishes, such as soy sauce baby chicken and a fine version of Peking duck.
i would never go back and would tell my friend not to go – the food is bland and food is overcook. the service is so-so. the worst part is they charge you more than the menu price and they added tips bill on without telling you so you can leave more tips - very dishonest people. Would never go back.
i will never eat at this restaurant again. long waits, shoddy service and bland food. the ambiance is terrible. decor - what decor? it was noisy and unpleasant. there was no "value"
AMAZING CHINESE FOOD!!! – I'm Chinese and I know what good chinese food taste & look like and Fuleen is definitely the best of all the many restaurants in Chinatown. There is a reason this restaurant is packed all week long, with new customers and regulars. I've eaten here millions of times, with family and friends of all different tastes, and the food has been outstanding everytime. All the food is fresh, and not insanely oily, like some other Chinese restaurants. The waiters are extremely helpful and welcoming. Although the restaurant isn't HUGE, seating is fast and service is excellent. Considering the sizes of each dish, the prices are unbeatable! During lunch time, the prices are even more amazing b/c you are getting same size dishes for a fraction of the dinner price. The seafood is also fresh as they show you the fish or lobster or shrimp they are going to prepare for you.
If you are looking for an amazing experience at a clean & delicious Chinese restaurant that serves authentic Chinese food THIS IS THE PLACE TO VENTURE TOO!!!
This place is not romantic however, but great for small-medium sized groups & families.
Great food, lively family atomosphere – We have returned to this restaurant several times for the excellent seafood and have never been dissapointed.
Fair – Typical Chinatown restaurant. Nothing special. Clean place, average service, extensive menu. They screwed up the sequence of the meal for my party. Best to share dishes. Drop by Good World for a drink afterwards.
A cheerful setting and splendid seafood--some of it still flopping--make for a Chinatown standout. – With its large fish tanks in the front windows, pleasant dining room and obliging service, Fuleen promises a satisfying Chinatown experience. While you'll find respectable renditions of Chinese favorites like a peppery orange beef, succulent stewed pork ribs with black bean sauce and sundry steamed and fried fish, the attraction here is a wide array of wonderful crustacean specialties. Favorites include bamboo steamers filled with pinky-sized deep-fried red shrimp, golden strips of deep-fried striped bass, and giant Dungeness crabs that are steamed with seaweed then smeared with a paste of hot peppers and garlic. Wok-seared Chinese beans are a fine accompaniment.
Huge Lunch – Good authentic value in Chinatown. Know for its fish, many of the dishes are shown full color on the menu, so experimenting can be tempting. A Huge serving for lunch was under $5. Tablecloths, very attentive and friendly service. 4 of us ate for $45 this included 1 appetizer, 4 beer, 2 wines and our 4 meals. Great value. The squid was a bit chewy but tasty. The Chilie Shrimp was very good but could use a vegetable dish on the side. Garlic sauce a little sweet but over all very pleasant and a value.
