This is a very welcoming restaurant (including to our two young children) and the food was fabulous. The special curry in particular was the best I've had in a long time. All in all way above average and I don't remember it being overly expensive.
Fortune Inn is a Chinese restaurant and takeaway near the railway station in Pickering. The entrance opens into a comfortable area where you can wait for your takeaway; this is also where the varied and well-stocked bar is also situated. The restaurant is masked from this area by a lacquered screen depicting birds, flowers and the countryside. The restaurant itself is fairly large with a good variety of tables to suit any sized party, round tables near the window. The décor is dominated on the wallpaper and pelmets by Chinese Dragons and framed small ornately designed teapots dotted around the walls.
The menu is vast for both drinks and particularly the food, with a variety of set meals for two, three, four or five persons. What is staggering though is the price, on average about £10 for a main course, with some much more. The set meals represented good value for money though, but we didn't fancy the combination of dishes. We ordered three dishes and a portion of rice. For the money the food needed to an excellent and we weren't disappointed, it was exquisite - beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and very tasty. The mixed vegetables and straw mushrooms were cooked to perfection. A brilliant meal, but the prices may prevent us being regular visitors, which is a shame, food is rarely cooked this well!
