Lucky Fortune Seafood Restaurant in Richmond


Updated 21st Jan 2012: We were notified by Jim & Karen that this restaurant had closed.

For a change, Polly and I decided to go for dim sum instead of cake. Actually, we had no luck that morning in search of a good cake place. First, we went to Richmond Bakery at No. 5 Rd and Cambie where we found out that the parking is only limited to one hour maximum. On top of that, when we checked out the bakery, it does not meet our appetite. Then we decided to go to Le Bon Bon but found out that it only opens at 11:00 am and it was not even 10:00 am at the time. So, we finally decided to go dim sum instead.

I remembered my neighbour had recommended Lucky Fortune Seafood Restaurant for their dim sum. So, Polly and I decided to check it out.

The restaurant is of medium size and the tables fill up quickly. We noticed that the prices for Chinese dishes are very reasonable too, range from $5 to $8. The Dim Sum price is only $2 for small, medium or large before 11:30 am and there after it’s $2.50. The restaurant opens at 9 am.

The only problem is that the dim sum menu is in Chinese only. Luckily, Polly can read Chinese. Ben and I will have some problem coming here ourselves.

Polly and I ordered 8 dishes to share, a bit too greedy. Here are the items which we ordered.

Steamed Black Bean Pork Ribs.

Steamed Beef Ball with Bean Curd Skin. We thought that it is a wrap when we ordered this.

The fish eye ball is the only thing left as Polly and I dont eat the fish eye ball. Any one of you game for the fish eye ball?

Sticky Rice.

Instead of wrap in lotus leaf, the sticky rice is wrapped in bamboo leaves.

The bill came up to $21 including tax and tips. We were amazed at our appetite. After the meal, we decided to go for a walk to digest all the food we ate.

River Road is Polly and family’s favourite place during spring and summer for an evening walk. The river view with the north shore mountains as a backdrop is simply breath taking. One can also watch the planes take off from YVR airport.

In a glorious spring day, even the dandelions are smiling at the sun. I simply love spring except for my allergy which comes with spring.

  1. Just went today based on your great review. The place was nicer than expected and the dim sum was very good. I will say it’s not as tasty as other dim sum restaurants and that’s a good thing because the dishes I ate all had less salt/msg. I wasn’t dying of thirst afterwards as I usually do. Sui mai and sticky rice were the standouts. The menus are now also in English and priced as Suanne mentioned. Staff was friendly and all spoke great English. Great value and I would go back again! Thanks CT!

  2. Lucky Fortune now fortunately has engrish on their menu. This may improve business as the dim sum was good. My wife reads and speaks chinese but it still puts me off a place if they give the impression of catering to a select group. Enjoy your website and have tried many local restaurant you have reviewed.
