A good choice for healthier restaurant eating. Tasty Asian dining and takeout. Pleasant, clean dining room. Fresh ingredients, nicely presented. Service is friendly, if sometimes slow, but mostly good. Lots of choices on the menu. The menus also offer ideas for choosing healthier items based on your dietary needs/health goals.

Have been here several times and each time I get something different.We thought it was Chinese food only but were pleasantly surprise to find they have incredible sushi as well. The prices are great and the portions are huge! Great food, great price, and just an overall cool place. Full sushi bar as well. Got to give it a try!

In a strip mall shared by Turner's Hunting & Fishing and a store featuring lizards and snakes, Fortune Cookie offers the best atmosphere for Chinese food in Fountain Valley. What once was the home of Bill Medley's (think Righteous, brother) club and many other restaurants that had short lives, the Cookie will hopefully be here for a long time. Very... More

Pan Fried Chicken Pot Stickers were NOT Pan Fried. Lacked any flavor whatsoever. The Beef Lo Mein made hospital food look good. No taste or flavor. Kung Pao Chicken was one of the worse I have ever had. This was one meal which reminds me of baseball: strike one, strike two, strike three ... YOU'RE OUT!!! They have gone downhill... More

Went here for the first time, intrigued by all the great Yelp reviews. Overall a decent Chinese restaurant, but I won't be going out of my way to return. Starting with the location, Fortune Cookies is located in a kind of tired looking strip mall. I wasn't really sure what to expect inside the restaurant given the overall look &... More

Mostly Cantonese style, maybe a few variations also. We had eggrolls and fried dumplings as appetizers, which were fairly good but unremarkable, ditto the war won ton soup. The walnut shrimp was very good. Portions are small to medium size, except the soup was large, and plenty for the 7 of us. Broccoli beef and spicy chicken were also fairly... More

We were a party of 4; 2 ordered Chinese food, 2 ordered sushi. Everyone liked their choice. Fortune Cookies uses lean and healthy ingredients, while maintaining the authenticity of the Chinese or Japanese fare. The prices are decent; there are daily lunch specials which are inexpensive indeed. The scallop sushi with a remoulade is delicious. I highly recommend the house... More

One of the few Chinese food places in our area that uses healthier ingredients, Fortune Cookies in FV is a great place to dine-in, but take-out and delivery are available too.
