This is one of the Chinese seafood restaurants we visited every Friday as we lived close to it. The dishes are tasty and the size are enough for 8 people. Of courses, the price is a little bit higher than other vicinity restaurants. The service is good. We recommend.

So many of my friends have bragged about the Fortune House Seafood Restaurant that I finally relented and went there for dim sum. The restaurant is huge, I overheard that it seats 300 persons. The dim sum items were not as tasty and fancy as I've had in other Chinese tea houses. Service was minimal and I had to wait... More

Snappy curt attitude from female server when we arrived. Would not listen to us or other server when we told her the number of guests in our group. Male server was apologetic. Brought dinner entree's before our soup, major faux pas. Dishes were flavorful, portion size smaller than average. Been there for special family occasions and was always good, but... More

It is traditionally customary to celebrate new year from every known culture in society. And Chinese New Year is almost always a given. Fortune House Restaurant in Metropolis at Metrotown is a traditional chinese restaurant in the sense that their menu is a direct symbolism of the ancient practice of using food to symbolize beliefs and apply it in real...

Crazy long lineup after 1:30pm. Even they gave you a number based on first come first serve to wait in line.....so not true. I saw the host who let their regular customers go in without a number. Food was ok. Service was bad. We waited for 30-40 mins to get a table, then another 15 mins to order, another 20... More

Had a big dinner party here one weekday night. The restaurant was fairly full. We had great service which I found pleasantly surprising. The servers were very attentive to detail and filled up our tea pot very often. Our food arrived within 30 mins of the order. The portions were tiny for what we were familiar with. The presentation of... More

Kind of abruptly I was led to a table for one. Looking in the menu I saw prices that went to over $500. They were meals for several so I asked if I could eat alone. I was assured yes. Or at least I think so! The waiter spoke VERY little English. I ordered spicy scallops with vegetables. When it... More

Hosted a business dinner for 8 at the restaurant. It is lined up out the door at lunch so figured it had to be good. It was. The food was spectacular - we had several dishes ranging from Peking Duck to steamed vegetables to Hot and Sour soup. Every dish was well presented, very good. Service was attentive.

Rude customer service especially if you don't speak Mandarin or Cantonese. Portions are good with food quality being only average & service being poor to just so-so. Great location in busy Metropolis, the biggest mall/shopping center in the Vancouver area....... *WARNING: Look @ your bill closely BEFORE PAYING cuz with my group of 8 people, 10% tips were AUTOMATICALLY added...

When we arrived in Vancouver, we asked about restaurants and was told that this Fortune House was really excellent. So we walked to the mall where it is located but got there right at 3:00 pm and was told they would be closed until 5:30. We were inside a huge mall so no problem, really! We ended up going to...
