I'm not one to write negative reviews typically, but my dinner here was such a terrible and painful learning experience, others must be warned of the scam this restaurant is running.
The steamed rock cod was "market price". The restaurant is a little bit pricy, dishes average between $12-18, so we assumed this dish at market price would be maybe $30-40....
It turns out that was how much they were charging PER POUND. Total cost of the dish $92. That's almost $37 per pound. This wasn't lobster, it was a steamed fish.
Service wasn't any better. Only two other tables were occupied in the entire restaurant, yet we sat and waited and waited to order, until we were finally able to flag down a server. He was curt and as he was leaving our table mumbled, "no soup?!" under his breath.
Its painful to be so blatantly scammed by a restaurant, but to be treated so poorly as well is just unforgivable.
Do yourself a favor and try one of Vancouver/Richmond's many other very delicious, very reasonably priced Chinese restaurants. Save yourself the disrespect and price-gouging and avoid Fortune Garden at all costs.
There must have a change of cooks or owners because in the past two years the restaurant has become terrible. We went once several months ago then again this week trying to give them another chance since we live near by. Portions now small, tasteless and overpriced. Plus they asked us if we wanted this new dish they were preparing that night of scallops. We said yes but then the price was $50 for the dish. This is rediculous. First they should have said the price which they didn't and since most of the fish dishes were in the $20 range we went for it. Big scam. Not that good and we were cheated.
Stay awat as it seems most of the people are. Used to be full of Chinese diners and now a few caucasians....suckers like us.
garbage food and not fresh at all price is high end and the portions is small totally it is a bad place for dinner and we were not go back for dinner for the rest of my life.
We've gone to this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed. Food is excellent, prices are pretty typical and serving sizes are very good. I can't understand the poor review preceding this one.
