Even though I have a ton of take-out menus, this is the only Chinese restaurant I call in the Richmond. I usually get it delivered, and it comes really fast. (Although it once took 35 or 40 minutes to arrive, the food didn't sit around; it was obvious that they waited to cook the food until just before it was delivered because the veggies were fresh-from-the-wok crisp.)
My favorite dish is "Basil Eggplant," which has chicken and prawns in it. Other dishes in my regular rotation are: chicken with broccoli; shrimp with snow peas; shrimp with mixed vegetables; and combo fried rice (get it spicy). All are uniformly excellent, and they don't skimp on the portions.
It's definitely a family-run operation (their kids do homework at a back table) and they're real friendly.
If I had to come up with a negative comment, it would be the $18 minimum order for delivery. That's a little high if you're ordering for just one.
Solid take out chinese!.
I havent left a review here before, but i feel like I owe one. Earlier I was looking up another Chinese food place in the richmond. The last two places I have tried here were below average.
So I looked up Family Fortune Restaurant, and saw a good and bad review. I was really debating on giving it a try, but I am so glad I did!
They are very quick with delivery and all the food was good quality! I enjoy spicy food and all the spicy dishes I ordered were excellent. I am really glad I found this place, and they will have me as a customer for a long time.
SO surprised to read "worst food ever" - wut??.
Moved to Western Addition/Japan Town area from Lower Haight two years ago and felt very i-s-o-l-a-t-e-d from all the delicious restaurants that once were - literally - just outside my front door!
Was eating alot of pizza 'cuz it didn't seem ANYone delivered in this area except Cable Car. *-*
Thanks to a true friend, indeed, various delivery menus began appearing in my apartment - Family Fortune Restaurant among them. I've never ordered Chinese delivery from anyone else since!
They are FAST. 15 to 30 minute delivery when they promise 45 to an hour. (Sometimes it feels like I'm just hanging up the phone when my doorbell rings.)
Their dishes are consistent in flavor and texture, they arrive HOT, their portions are generous and flavorful.
Their delivery staff is personable - please remember to tip! (I work in a coffee shop. Tips are good.)
In the last two years of ordering from this restaurant, there has not been a single instance - no matter the day of the week nor the time of day or night - when I have received product or service contrary to that which I have described. I am genuinely sorry that the previous reviewer had such a negative experience.
Personal faves: Fried Crab Cakes - Sweet & Sour Soup - Sesame Chicken - Salt 'n' Pepper Fish - Vegetable Chow Mein - Vegetable Fried Rice.
WORST FOOD EVER!. This is by the worst chinese food I've ever had in my life. It smelled spoiled and tasted like garbage. I took one bite of each item and threw the rest away. What a waste of money. The delivery was also very late. When I called and asked them when I should expect my delivery, the lady screamed at me and would not stop until I hung up on her. DO NOT EAT HERE!
Some of the Best Chinese. Tried some take out the other day and let me tell you....it was really really good. I had the General Tso's Chicken......phenomenal. Its usually empty but dont let that deter you. High quality food....a must.
