Fresh, flavorful, fast, friendly & family-owned. This family of three can cook up some of the tastiest entrees around. Most entrees are in the $5-$6 range. The meals are cooked to perfection (after you order) and the veggies are full of flavor and crisp. This is not the typical soggy fare you'll find elsewhere in town. The owners are delightful and know excellent customer service despite speaking broken English. I have eaten there countless times, never had a complaint, and always welcomed with a smile. If only the rest of the world were like this stripmall slice of heaven. Lunch buffet is around $5.50, and a great diversion from the drive thru's of the area, easily managed in a half-hour lunch break. I'm usually in and out in under 10 minutes. If you've ever begrudgingly left a tip, you'll appreciate the sincere gratitude & service offered here. The hostess is so gracious, I gave her a $5 tip on a $30 order, she squealed with delight, said thank you three times and brought me an extra order of crab rangoon! Unbelievable!
i first started going to this place because they used to serve dim sum in the mornings. the dim sum was fairly decent and not easily found in omaha. after a while i tried the dinner dishes too. they weren't bad and offered a few nice diversions from the regular chinese dishes you will normally find. however, the food quality has been slipping as of late. overall, the dishes didn't taste as fresh or as inspired. i must have caught them on a bad day on my most recent visit, as the time it took to be at least greeted by a server and handed a menu was far too long. i think it took about 2 hours before my family and i were able to leave. the dim sum may be still good, it's been a while since i have tried it, but this is a place just like the rest of chinese restaurants in this town... average at best. i will be generous and give it 3 stars only because of their ambition to serve dim sum.
My wife and I have been going to Grand Fortune Restaurant for at least eight years now. We found it by accident before we moved to Omaha I have frequented Chinese restaurants all my life having lived on both the East and West coasts, and it is by far consistently the best I have experienced The freshness of the food and their willingness to customize it is amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Their VIP card makes it much easier to dine there more frequently. I am curious about the earlier 3star review -- perhaps they are talking about some other restaurant. Grand Fortune's Dim Sum is regularly served only on weekends during the "noon meal"
I remember eating here in the early fifties with my parents. It was packed and everyone raved about it then. With the demise of downtown Omaha, I am thankful that they have remained. Whenever I travel to Omaha this is a MUST eat there. Great Chinese food, crispy fresh egg rolls, won tons, mu gu gai pan, har gow, tsu mai, pepper steak and top rate sweet and sour....hmmmmmm. I have missed the little chinese waitress who could barely speak English but never failed to get the order right. She was quite old the last time we went but still sharp. Thanks you King Fongs.
The food isn't bad, and I don't entirely mind that the atmosphere is dingy and a weird mix of 80's/miami/asian. But I gave my loyalty punch card to my friend (we bought lunch separately) and the guy practically yelled at me about it. He ended up punching the stupid card twice after we all glared at him in shock, but honestly, at that point I didn't care about the card. I rarely eat there so it's not like I'm raking in the free dinners. It's the fact that it made him SO angry. You have to contain yourself, buddy.
I don't usually write these reviews but I thought the food was delicious, full of flavor, huge helpings and we will definitely order it again. We ordered the Dragon and Phoenix, General Tso's chicken with an egg roll and hot and sour soup. All of these items were very tasty. The soup does have a kick to it and was very good. Not too saucy like some places and plenty of white rice. As for previous comments, just make sure you are reading the menu carefully and you can make notes for white rice only. Enjoy!
i have been to this chinese restaurant several times. the service has always been good here. the food is not bad. they offer the same things you will find in most chinese restaurants, but seem to do it a little better and a little fresher. the place is not mind blowing in any way as no particular dish really sticks out except for their spring rolls. this is a place that has been consistantly good enough that i dont worry before walking in the door.
Some of the most delicious food I've ever had in my life! Very extensive menu, including a separate gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan menu (make sure you ask for it when you go in. They can also modify dishes from the main menu by replacing meat with mock duck or tofu). Huge portions and good prices. The owners are lovely people and work very hard to make customers happy. Oh yeah...they also have SUPER cheap beer :)
The Food was awesome potions are great and delivery was in good timing, Love the fact that all ingredient were clearly specified on the menu, and loved the pork in my rice, don't know what was wrong with the first review they have all different kinds of rice and it clearly states on the menu what you get with what you order. Will recommend to all my friends and family, very friendly restaurant.
Love this restaurant. Excellent (*excellent*) food. The unagi (eel rolls) are just fantastic. I haven't tried any of the Chinese dishes yet, but I can tell you the Korean food and the sushi at Dragon House is exceptional and maybe because they are a new restaurant they're prices are much lower than I'd expect to pay. It's a good place to go after work for wings and a beer as well.
