If you've ever visited China, no doubt some of your fondest and most vivid memories will be of the wonderful food you tasted there. And, if you've been longing to sample some really good, authentic Cantonese cuisine ever since, your search is over - you can experience all the wonderful flavours you remember so well without having to travel further than Solihull's Stratford Road.

The chefs at The Fortune Inn have carefully designed a menu that not only offers firm favourites, like beautifully crispy spring rolls and fried beef in black bean sauce, but also tempts the diner with a whole host of mouth-watering, exciting new dishes. Each culinary offering is prepared with the greatest precision and care, by chefs who remain true to traditional cooking methods passed down through generations.

My companion and I visited for dinner as a midweek treat. We were treated like old friends as we arrived, welcomed with smiles and shown to a table in the pretty little dining room, laid with crisp blue and white tablecloths, delicately painted china and, of course, chopsticks. The starters were exquisite and absolutely bursting with flavour. I chose the fried king prawns with spicy salt and chilli, which were succulent and so delicious that I was reluctant to share them with my friend, who had great things to say about his starter of spare ribs with Peking-style sauce. My main course of 'Snow White duck' was delightful - crispy roast duck stuffed with minced prawn and topped with a tasty crab meat sauce. My friend, a seafood lover, declared that his fried scallops with ginger and spring onion were the best he had ever tasted.

After such a wonderful meal, I can only applaud owner Peter Chu and his enthusiastic team, who for the last 12 years have been bringing the finest authentic Cantonese cuisine to Solihull. I for one feel lucky to have discovered The Fortune Inn.
