We there for a banquet a few weeks back and the food was prepared fast and tasty. It caters more to the non Asians and has a very loyal following. The other Fortune Star on El Camino closed and is now a Pho restaurant.

“Late night” in a new city, I left my apartment in search of food. Having lived in New York, Chinese food is one of my favorites. I stumbled upon Fortune Star. I ordered a couple of my go-to items for takeout: Singapore chow mei fun and chicken with garlic sauce. Since this was my first time here, I didn’t realize that rice was a la carte. The latter was better, despite not having any accompanying rice. The former was not as yellowish as I was used to, the noodles were a bit overcooked and the pork was chunky versus cut in strips and wasn't bbq. The search continues.

Had dinner at Fortune Star last night and the food was what you would find in an average take out Chinese Restaurant - sweet and sour, over cooked veggies, and
greasy chicken, Service was wonderful and very attentive. The Fortune Star Restaurant on El Camino serves more authentic Chinese food. But this Fortune Star on 25th Ave caters more to the non Asian clientele and does it very well.

Another authentic chinese restaurant in San Mateo (lots of chinese eat here) on El Camino near 25th Avenue. The lettuce wraps and the moo shu pork were excellent - as was everything else. The decor is a bit nicer than most of the local chinese restaurants of this type...reasonable prices - great food
