Had food here or from here 3 time in one week. All good to very good. Herbal chicken, braised pig trotters, and clay pot prawns were delicious. The atmosphere is typical, local restaurant frequented by locals at a good price. Can't ask for better.

This is my second visit as I liked the food here. We ordered fish maw soup, chili crab, fried man tou, Egg plant with minced meat, mee goreng and fish stir fried with bean paste and bitter gourd. The sauce of the chili crab was super delicious. The fried man tou was very crunchy on the outside, yet soft on... More

Forture, yes that's right it's misspelled intentionally. Legend, now lost in the mists of time, has it that the fates of the restaurant changed when a careless sign maker misspelled Fortune. A good backstory just makes a neighborhood fixture all that more attractive doesn't it? Brass tacks. This is what is known locally as a Tze Char joint, which means... More

Was there for 1pm lunch on Saturday, their off peak timing. Ordered salted egg crab and coffee pork ribs. Both were very well done. Food was served hot and v tasty. Crab was of good size $58/kg. The sambal kailan was too hard. With three bowls of rice, our bill was $82.50 for the three of us.

The Forture delivers consistently satisfying and well cooked local dishes and is one of my family's favourite places. Their seafood is delicious - especially the black pepper crab and chili crab. We have returned many times and given it the nickname "Crabby Jacks". There is always a fight for the pumpkin prawns and their black pepper beef is excellent too... More

We always try and make a stop here whenever we're in town, and it never disappoints. From their special fried rice to their sweet and sour pork, the food is consistently good. This time we also had the fish with mango and the deer meat with oyster sauce. Excellent selections! You will not be disapopinted!

When the restaurant gets busy, the taste of the food gets compromised. So please visit on weekdays or off peak hours. My favorite dish is their coffee pork ribs/chops. The steam herbal chicken is also another of my favorite. If you visit in the day, the same coffee shop has a fish soup stall and a malay food stall. Both... More
