Visited Golden Fortune on a family holiday. It was absolutely fine. Nothing more, nothing less just normal service with fine food. No reason not to recommend if you want a no frills Chinese experience.

We rang late afternoon on New Year's Eve for a table that night. Arranged one for 9.15pm due to being booked up until then. After a short walk from the cottage we were staying in,arrived to find the restaurant packed full and people waiting on sofas to be seated at their tables. Got chatting to a Scottish couple for a...

Lovely meal, had a banquet only negative were the spare ribs that had way too much sauce on and they were hard and extremely difficult to eat. Everything else was fantastic and we couldn't fault. Also very reasonably priced food.

We didn't realise we had arrived during Happy Hour (5-7pm) and chose the wonderful 4 course meal for £11.90. The food was piping hot and absolutley delicious. The staff were so friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back next time we're in the area.

Me and my girlfriend visited here on our weekend away as our hotel was just around the corner. We did not need to reserve a table because we arrived rather early. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table. The staff were very friendly. I ordered the beef satay and my girlfriend ordered the chicken curry. We also got... More

Nice meal of sweet and sour chicken with rice, chicken in garlic and chilli with mushrooms and fried rice, prawn toast. Tasty and not too heavy. Served very quickly, and very friendly, efficient staff. They did spoil it somewhat when we were asked to leave a tip. This really is not acceptable etiquette and makes the customer feel pressured and... More

Nice friendly atmosphere. The service is quick even though the restaurant can get very busy. We had the chicken sweet corn soup (very nice), salt and pepper squid (very disappointing), crispy duck (very nice), chicken in ginger spring onion and the prawn in ginger spring onion (very nice). We asked for two sides chips and yang chow fried rice. Unfortunately... More

We didn't book but, as we arrived quite early, we managed to get a table. Filled up later, so wouldn't have been as lucky. Nice, bustling atmosphere and the food was good. Large choice on the menu and we had a bottle of fairly priced wine too. Especially nice chicken and sweetcorn soup. Would go again.

Came here after walking past earlier in the evening - and being tempted in by the nice smell of Chinese wafting out. We chose the spare ribs in OK sauce, and the prawn toast for starters. A large plate of prawn toast - very nice. Some of the best we've tasted. As for the spare ribs though - very very... More
