We made reservation at 10 pm . Perfect time only 5 minutes wait . We celebrated the Chinese New Year . We ordered the specials : rice , soup, lamb , fish , beef with Chinese broccoli. 3 dishes were cold , only the last dish beef broccoli were hot when arrived . We did not complain because it waa not a good luck on new year to complain. Anyway , my bill came to 120+ . Could you look into this matter and refund or credit me back some . O would appreciate it . Thank you .

The girl at the front desk did not find our reservation upon arrival. She called a hostess over and they both questioned our authenticity. I showed them the reservation confirmation on my phone. We were seated immediately. Waitress was not very outgoing. We often felt during the meal that we were bothering her when we asked for something. The soup, egg roll and pot stickers were good. The sweet and sour pork was tasteful but cold upon arrival. (6/10) The chicken chow mein was way over salted. I could not eat more than 2 bites. (3/10) The lemongrass chicken was over salted and appeared to be undercooked. (3/10) The mango dessert appeared to be freshly made and was welcome after the not so stellar meal we had. We were disappointed overall and wished we had chosen another restaurant to celebrate Chinese New Year.

We went for Valentines. The special was very nice and the desert was awesome though we couldn't figure out what it was. Our waiter was amazing.

Last minute - friends came over and we were looking for something close by our home. We haven't been to Thunder Valley often (restaurant is inside a Casino and smoke seems to bother us). We decided to give it a try - pleased to say the smoke within the restaurant was not a concern and we were able to enjoy our meal.

We all enjoyed our selections and found the service to be excellent!

Server was excellent, food was just average. They did provide a free dessert for my wife's birthday to make evening more personal. The restaurant is located inside the Thunder Valley Casino, so having to walk through the smoke smelling air before and after meal was a negative. We would probably not go back again just because of the smoke of the Casino. Don't like to eat a nice meal and then go home smelling like smoke!

We were seated for 20 min. Finally waved down a waiter. They said our waiter went on break! Service was awful. Food was AMAZING. We will try it again.

The food was great. We were pleasantly surprised that our meal was tastier and better than our usual favorite restaurant back home. The service was great as well. A hidden gem. Definitely coming back.

Very good food - but we were sorry to find that they no longer have Shanghai Dumplings on the menu. We ordered the chicken/salted fish fried rice, the deep fried sea bass with asparagus, and the beef tenderloin with asparagus. All dishes were very good.

Food was good, as usual. Service was excellent! Variety of dishes was more than adequate for everyday dining with friends.

Enjoy their food. Good selection on the menu. Love their chinese beef stew. All of their entrees are pretty good. Go there once or twice a month.

Everything was delicious, the only "delta" was the beef in the broccoli beef: it was a bit too tough and salty.

The food was quite good despite being in a casino. If the restaurant was transplanted into a different atmosphere, I would have ranked it higher. It was loud and bright and not inviting.

The food was good for the most part. The hostess never smiled. So many different waiteresses came to the table. I couldn’t tell who our actual server was because I had to ask for everything. And it was a good thing I had it charged to the room because they never asked for my players card. Great service is hard to find nowadays.
