I'd never been to New Happy Fortune until a few weeks ago when I was browsing local eateries in my area. I came across multiple reviews singing praise to the great service Jenny provides. I'm a sucker for someone who makes me laugh, remembers my dietary restrictions, treats me with respect, suggests dishes & tells me if I'm going to like it or not. Needless to say we weren't disappointed.
It was like she pierced into my dietary preference soul the moment I walked in the door. I said "I'm allergic to-" and she abruptly (and respectfully) cut my off and finished my sentence with "Nightshade vegetables?" YES! How did she know? I'll admit, I saw all those positive reviews for her posted within a few days and I figured "She must just be having a STELLAR week! A real 'Richard Petty' of service record!"
Boy I felt sheepish after a single dining experience with Jenny. I had to eat my words...from the fortune cookies(To be fair the cookies are stale and taste like paper so it's very confusing. I figured the fortune must be edible aswell. I felt Jenny might have dropped the ball a bit on not telling me about the fortune in the cookie not edible. -1 Star).
BUT JENNY IS AWESOME!!!!!! Oh, side note...If your going to review, punctuate and spell check.

This is by far my favorite place for dinner. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. They also have the nicest staff, day and night. Jenny always treats everyone with respect and she is funny too. She helps you out if you're not sure what to get and she is nothing but nice.

We have been coming here for the last seven years. We have never had anything but great service. When we have questions about a dish Jenny has been very helpful with explaining the dish. As a matter of fact, she knows our family so well, she'll even tell us whether we might like it or not. Jenny is such a great waitress that she can even remember what we normally order and recognizes who we are, if we call in a to go order, just by the first item or so.
On a side note to others, if you're going to take the time to post a review, please take the time to puncuate and learn how to use spell check.

Jenny, the waitress, is incredible! My husband and I hadn't been there in a few months and when I called to place a to-go order she recognized my voice and remembered us! She's always so fast and funny. She makes us feel welcome and at home. Not to mention, the food is super yummy!

I have been coming to this restaurant for YEARS! I love Jenny. She started after I started coming here and she took the time to get to know me and my food allergies and preferences. I don't have to place my order, she suggests new things for me to try. I make it a habit to stop by and see her and Mike. I really feel cared for and it is worth the drive for me. I live 20 minutes away.

I've been going to this place for years, the food is pretty darn good, the servings are generous. Great place to pick up dinner to go. Nice people too.
After searching online for chinese restaurants in our new neighborhood we decided to give New Happy Fortune a go. Many reviews I found were mixed bag but emphasized menu choices were Chinese-American. So we ordered the G2 and a Chicken trio, and Crab puffs (my ultimate chinese-american classic). WOWZERS is all we keep saying the flavors are impactful and linger long after the bite is gone. We chose these two items wanting to try a mixture hoping to find items we like for future order. DId we ever! we will reorder all items. This is one classic cliche, much like A Christmas Story itself, that we be wonderful to revisit, red vinal boothes and oversized Gold Fish to boot. This is exactly what a cold rainy and way too long Portland winter calls for.

Review: Amazing hole-in-the-wall place! We were coming from the eclipse in Salem and dropped in. The food was reasonably priced, the flavor was amazing (sechwan beef exploded in my mouth), the portions are large, and the hostess was extremely friendly. The only negative we had was that there were no refillable drink, and the hostess even made us fresh iced tea to compensate. Definitely worth a look.

Review: The best chinese food that I have had in Portland by far. This is where locals go for Chinese. Nothing fancy, but delicious.

Review: 1.0 star rating 9/19/2017 If I could give this a negative star I would. We got there and there was only one other table with people sat at it. The hostess(?) said sit anywhere. The place we chose was apparently out of bounds so we chose another boot. The hostess told us that we would have a 30 minute to 45 minute wait. We, of course were curious why, and she said, in a snippy sort of way, "We have 10 to go orders ahead of you." Now, I don't mind waiting for good food, at least a reasonable amount of time, but we didn't even get water for at least another 20 minutes. For some reason, I thought that someone would take our order so that we could somehow get INTO that line of orders. I mean, if you never take our order aren't more and more called in take out orders just going to keep coming in? After about half an hour we asked how much longer it was going to be. The hostess said at least another 30 minutes. My aunt, who came in a few minutes after my friend and I said, you said it would be half an hour. The hostess said "No, I said half hour to 45 minutes, and you weren't even here so how would you know?" That pretty much did it for us. We left and ate at Taco Bell instead.
