One of the main reasons people go to Chinatown is to experience the Chinese culture in Hawaii, and that includes the food. Well, there’s a new restaurant in this historic neighborhood for you to try. Good Fortune Chinese Restaurant opened this past summer at the corner of Smith and Pauahi streets, serving authentic Chinese cuisine, including Hong Kong-style dishes, famous foods from different regions of China, dim sum and more.

In the kitchen is Chef Ming, who is originally from Hong Kong and has worked in the local restaurant industry for almost three decades. At Good Fortune, he has brought not only his masterful culinary skills but also a following of loyal customers who just love his cooking.

There are about 38 different dim sum offerings available from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily (steamed dim sum also available at night). At lunch-time, enjoy a Lunch Special + Soup of the Day menu, where dishes are just $7.95 (available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., soup not included for take-out orders).

As for its regular menu, which lists 143 different dishes, you’ll find many traditional Chinese and local favorites, such as Chicken with Orange Flavor Sauce ($10.95) made with a homemade sauce that has just the right amount of sweetness and orange flavor.
