fANTASTIC SERVICE , we had an excellent Banquet for $59.00 pp

Yummys treats for all , not a big fan of the desert , just a personal taste though.

Great waitress , sorry I forgot your name.

Only complaint is the chair height does not match the high tables , we are not all 6ft2'' and above.

Good luck anyone under 175cm

Thanks for a lovely night I will be back. Anthony ,Paul and Rebecca Maddern.

We went for a family meal. The service was outstanding - really friendly and helpful - and the dishes were of a really high quality. The chili crab dumplings were stand-out great, but every mouthful was a treat. We will be back!

Great ambiance and attentive wait staff. I felt the dim sums could be improved ; the har gow and xiao long bao skins should be thinner and have stronger flavours. However, we enjoyed the hot and numbing twice cooked duck and 24 hour beef short ribs.

Fantastic food, service and decor. Might benefit from some soft furnishing to lower the noise. Regardless, great place!

A really impressive night, very organized wait staff, at the beginning of the night we were greeted promptly and then later as we moved to our table someone I hadn't met yet greeted me by name. It was a busy night so it really set the scene. We ordered the first set menu and everything was matched with wines and was a perfect evening. The food is incredible. You wont leave hungry. my advice is to choose from the dumpling menu because the dumplings were just amazing. I could of easily been satisfied with just those and wine. Will return in a few months.

Hi guys,

We really wanted to like Little Valley, but were sadly very disappointed in the food. The ambiance, service and drinks list were exceptional, but unfortunately that’s where our praise ends. We found the food over priced and lacking its natural flavour.

The crab dumplings were over flavoured and we couldn’t taste the seafood, and the main of fish again was heavily spiced/flavoured. We just wanted to taste the seafood, especially at that price point. The duck and dried chilli dish was quite tasty, but very small portion size for the price point.

Really wanted our review to be better.

Thanks!

Cannot fault this restaurant one bit. Service was outstanding and the food was simply amazing.
All the staff that looked after us (Anthony, Mowat(sp?) and Ben, were amazing.
The menu concept was explained and we ordered several dishes to share. I was blown away by the taste and presentation. A special mention of the Yuzu Cheesecake dessert. Brilliant.
Will definitely be back.

Yes definitely recommend but a bit pricey for the size of the meals. We were told 1 large meal would be enough for 2 people and I could have easily finished it by myself and still had room for more...otherwise outstanding.

Outstanding! The food is incredible, the wine list is wonderfully thought-out, the beer is cold and the service can't be faulted. Of course I'll be back (again and again)

Everything about this experience was amazing.
I like my food mild and some of the food could be quite hot for me. I would ask for mild if you don't like hot food.

The food was like nothing I've ever tasted. An amazing and tasty fusion of thai, spice and asian flavours. Must try the truffle and potato spring rolls, the scallops in pumpkin puree and chilli oil, the chinese bolognese and finish with a mandarin custard steam bun. Sensational! Staff were the icing on the cake ... service so good we just had to leave a tip for them. Highly recommend.

Took my wife to your restaurant, we loved it. Your service is great, you have a fun and interesting menu. I was sad that the Kangaroo TarTar and the tounge and lemon curds were gone. But that's ok.
I suppose its the prices that got me. You need to find a way to lower your cocktail prices and the large meal price. I'm not a business man, but as a consumer its just a hard hit and one that makes me second-guess coming back. I love your food, I just don't want to spend hundreds of dollars each time I go.
All the best, I hope the next time we do go it won't have to be for a special occasion, because currently your prices only allow that. Id rather go once a week and not once a year.

Our selected raw starter was not delivered.
Dumplings were fantastic!
The Spanner crab sweet meat was completely overpowered by the spice in this small plate dish.
The Salt & Pepper Whole fish main needed a lot more flavour!
Would return for the dumplings!

The service was great but the food was just ok and nothing special. One of the set wines with the banquet was at best quirky and at the worst insipid. Overall we were a bit disappointed.

We took 2 friends there for a big "0" birthday lunch. The food was amazing, the dumplings in particular were spectacular, all of the courses were very fresh, had great flavour and were served in a quick, but not hurried, manner.

Very extensive wine list.

We will be back

We had dinner for 6. Table was in the centre of the restaurant, the acoustics were not good as it was not possible to conduct a conversation with anybody except the two people adjacent to you. The food was great, the wine we selected, while not cheap, was of a very good standard. Will certainly dine here again, but it will be a table for 2 or 4 situated at the edge.
