Editorial review from Citysearch 9/23/2013

I love the Fortune Inn. The food is great. The service is great. The music is pleasant but not too loud and the prices are right. It's my favorite place to eat in Glendale. Last night a bunch of us went and shared several dishes - Nutty Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken, Shrimp with Lobster Sauce and Green Beans. Good stuff! more

Editorial review from GrubHub 8/22/2013

I love the old style Chinese food that I remember from my youth, but updated to be healthier. The portions are plentiful and the prices very reasonable. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 4/14/2013

Ordered two entrees, soup and pot stickers. The entrees were tasty, but the tofu was quite tough in one of the entrees. The pot stickers were just OK. Soup was excellent. Not bad in a pinch, but not my favorite. more

Not a huge fan! 12/5/2011

I ordered from them and was not impressed. The kon pao beef was salty and not spicy. The smoky chicken was overly sweet but had nice moisture. Really unfortunate considering they boast about their attention to detail on their website. Also their ribs taste like they are marinated in perfume as opposed to spices. Kinda strange flavor. Wouldn't order from them again, especially if I need rice to cut the overwhelming flavor. more

Excellent option 2/9/2010

My husband and I have been searching for a great replacement for our favorite Chinese restaurant that closed 3 years ago because they lost their lease. In the Glendale/Eagle Rock/Pasadena area there aren't that many good choices. FINALLY, just two weeks ago we found Fortune Inn. Their menu has good variety and it's not the same 6 menu items where they simply swap out the meat. My husband loves the orange chicken with the smoke and the fried rice with curry. My current favorites are the shrimp in lobster sauce and their ma por tofu with the shiitake mushrooms. I like that they allow spiciness levels, as my husband is a ""HOT"" and I'm just a ""MEDIUM"". We've also ordered delivery from Fortune Inn and they come into Eagle Rock for us. I LOVE THAT. We are currently devoted to Fortune Inn. Pros: Quick delivery, piping hot, delicious food Cons: Not in Eagle Rock ;-) more

Best EVER 7/30/2007

The last guy is crazy, for those of us that DO eat meat, this place is fantastic. The walnut shrimp is so good it could be dessert, the service is amazing and I have never had anything that was less than incredible. I have eaten chineese food all over the world and this place is my favorite. Have the walnit shrimp, you'll thank me. Pros: Walnut Shrimp Cons: a little pricier than other places more

poor undercooked food, so sad, too bad 7/23/2007

So this place gets great reviews but we haven't seen the food match the praise. The first time we got the walnut shrimp, vegies, and a chow fun noodle dish. I've eaten Chinese food in Vancouver and San Francisco so I think I have pretty good taste. Since we are both vegitarians we were sure to ask ""is there meat in this?"" we don't want meat. the chow fun dish came, looked okay but there was meat... hidden under the noodles, lurking behind the vegies. the shrimp were good though. the second time we went just a few days ago, we ordered the shrimp, eggplant and the special tofu dish. This time the walnuts shrimp weren't cooked well enough to take the cornstarch taste out, the tofu was way salty, and the eggplant was inconsistently cooked, some pieces were raw others overcooked.. do yourself a favor and miss this place, if you are a vegitarian, want well cooked food and have a poor salt tolerance. go to china town instead. Pros: big bar, lots of meat dishes that might be okay Cons: undercooked food, occasional waiter that doesn't understand english, more

Best Chinese food in Glendale 3/21/2007

This is my favorite restaurant in the Glendale area. I have been a loyal customer for over 7 years. They have a really tasty variety of chinese food. My favorite dish here is the kung pao fish fillet. It is truely amazing. If you love fish and you go there you must try this dish. I have to let people know that if you want good food, good service at a real reasonable price, then this is a place you really have to go to. The atmosphere is also really nice, so it would be ideal to go there on a date. Pros: Thumbs way up more

Fortune Time!!! 5/19/2006

My boyfriend and I love Fortune Inn. We have been going there for 5 years and always enjoy the food and service. The kung pao, sweet and pungent chicken, eggrolls, and the chicken and corn soup are great. The people who work there are very nice and we enjoy talking to them. Yummy crispy noodles with sweet and sour sauce before the meal, along with tea, and a tasty vanilla fortune cookie. Great prices too! Pros: Food, Service, Prices Cons: Parking, on weekends more

Food 7/18/2005

They have aswome sweet and sour chicken .. never a wait and theres always a greater. Pros: fresh food, no wait, no reservation more

5 stars on everything 6/8/2005

This is a little golden palace in Glendale. The service is excellent and the staff seems to remember everyone as they return. Food of all tastes. From hot and spicy to smokey to mild. Your pallet will not be disappointed. It is not like the average chinese restaurant where all the dishes are covered with cabbage and soggy vegies. The vegies are fresh and cooked to order. They also have a full service bar for your drinking pleasure. My hat is off to the owner. They also validate parking at the convenient garage behind them. Pros: Service & Staff, Food, Location/validation more

Not what I expected given the 9.5 8/20/2004

I was expecting this place to be on the order of Yukean Kang or at least Kung Pao Bistor give the rating of 9.5. Its a nice place. Reasonably priced. Center of Glendale. The food is not in the same league of the aforementioned est. The egg rolls were chemical tasting and the sauces where heavy and sticky. The meat was not the best cut. etc. etc. etc. I wrote this review not so much cause I didnt like this place.. I just dont think it deserves a 9.5 more

A real favorite!! 6/13/2004

We *love* this place, and so do all of our friends!! We are the only ones in our group that live on this side of town, but we have friends from as far away as Fontana suggest getting together at Fortune, even those who disliked Chinese before they ate here. Try the Smoky Beef, Nutty Chicken and Green Beans. The hub likes the chili sauce, too. Pros: the food is *so* good, Family servings ~$12, In great area! more

Just Great 5/20/2004

I love this place. My husband and I go here on a regualr basis. The food is always served hot and prompty. All the servers know who we are and what we usually order. They are always willing to make accomidations for large group (we had 30 people and the service was just as good as always). Pros: Great Food, Great Service, Great Little Place more

Truth 4/14/2004

Absolutely incredible! The food is tasty and fresh, no greasy after taste. Decor is casual, friendly staff, and they validate your parking ticket. Lunch specials and you get so much food, complimentary hot tea. You will leave satisifed and your body will thank you for putting something healthy and nutritious into it. Pros: Healthy, Satisfying, Parking Validated, Enjoyable, Friendly more

Great Chinese in Glendale 1/30/2004

Nobody I've spoken with has a bad thing to say about this place. It's quiet, the service is excellent, and I haven't had a dish I haven't liked there. I recommend the szechuan shredded chicken, the sweet & sour soup, and the walnut shrimp. This is a staple for my fiancee and I. Pros: Great service, Great food, Good parking more

Paradise in the City 11/18/2002

This place is like an oasis in the middle of the big buildings in downtown Glendale. The atmosphere is relaxing, romantic, and invigorating all at the same time. Food was pretty good too. Great place to go for a nice meal in downtown Glendale. more
