Fortune Pavilion is celebrating it's 25th anniversary, but in my opinion, there's not much worth celebrating.

The restaurant seems to have gone really downhill. When you go inside, there's some rave reviews from a local newspaper dating from the 1980s. If the reviewer was correct, then it seems like the restaurant must have been a great place back then with wonderfully seasoned dishes and excellent service. It must have really been in an out-of-the-way location since the Walmart and other adjacent stores came later.

Fast forward to today. While the bar at the front of the restaurant remains outstanding, there is very little character or taste in the food. A problem that other reviewers have noted--and me as well--is that most of the dishes tend to be somewhat soggy or oily. Occasionally, certain dishes are comparatively good (one of the better dishes is the fried tofu), but most are not especially memorable.

The service is comparatively fast, but the wait staff is as soulless as the food. While I don't expect smiles all the time, the mood is universally dour.

The restaurant could certainly use a good cleaning too. If you eat there, take note of the wooden railings between the booths. There's a lot of dust on those, which makes me nervous how it's like back in the kitchen. But to be fair, I've never found anything in my food that I haven't ordered. The bathrooms, to their credit, are also neat and tidy.

Fortune Pavilion was once much better, and it clearly needs new management. I have a sense that the owner is probably tired and wants out, and is giving the restaurant the bare minimum it needs to survive, though not thrive.

I like the atmosphere in this place. It's a warm , serene style.

The staff is pretty good too.

There are two factors which is why I WON'T EAT HERE.

The food isn't fresh,kind of stale,been sitting around all day kind of food. ( I always get problems digesting it ) and reason no.2, it is not as clean as it looks. Believe me.

PROS:
CONS: unclean, stale foods

FORTUNE PAVILION IS STILL AFTER ALL THESE YEARS THE VERY WORST PLACE FOR CHINESE FOOD.
I CAN'T SEE HOW THEY HAVE STAYED IN THE BUSINESS THIS LONG.
THE FOOD IS NOT FRESH AND IT IS EITHER GREASY OR WAY TOO SOGGY .
THE SERVICE IS AVERAGE.
ATMOSPHERE AVERAGE.BUT IT'S WHAT YOUR EATING THAT COUNTS !

PROS: PLENTY OF PARKING SPACE
CONS: GREASY AND SOGGY FOOD
