Really lovely culinary adventure. We took the bus into the Valley and had a wonderful experience thanks to another Annouska Tucker Restaruant Review.

Well done guys. Hope to visit again.

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.

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent dinner on Saturday night at Little Valley! Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable.
The only downside is that the seating arrangements are so close together that is a little impersonal when on a date night....the smaller tables are seated uncomfortably close to one another.
Other than that, we had a wonderful experience.

We really enjoyed the experience but the noise level meant we ended up leaving earlier than we have liked. The food was excellent but the high noise meant we were frustrated int a semi-silence and next day hoarse throats.

Little Valley is an amazing take on modern Chinese cuisine. The food here preserves the authentic taste while experimenting with different ingredients for some of the finest delicacies in Brisbane.

We ordered the 24hrs short ribs, aged roast duck and some dim sums for lunch. The obvious crowd's favourite is the ribs for sure as most of us would have preferred more flavours in the duck (the texture of the duck is still great tho). While we expected to fall in love with their popular chilli crab & pork xiao long bao, it was the chicken wonton that won our heart by surprise with the tender fillings and inexplicably delicious sauce that it was bathed in. Most of the dishes here are made for sharing so the portion is definitely worth your money and are reasonably priced.

We loved the ambience and interior design of the dining room, the minimalistic design with gold accents creates a spacious yet luxurious feel to the small room. It was easy enough to book a table for lunch on Saturday and opposite a parking space which is a convenient plus. The only thing we do think they could improve on is the service. While the staffs are friendly and polite, they seem nervous at times and sometimes have trouble with handling the plates and utensils.

Despite that, our experience at Little Valley was still an amazing one and we are keen to return. We highly recommend the restaurant and encourage you to bring your friends and family to try their fantastic food!

The only negative was the noise level, but after a while we got used of that and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Portions were too small, you only get one piece of each serving, not for people who needed a feed. Should be more generous with the portions at least. We drove for an hour to get there, paid $422in total, $59 pp, went home feeling hungry. This is a place where you go once and never go back again.

We went there for lunch. Excellent service. Great food. However, our duck pancake was disappointing. There were barely any duck inside. Told the staff, and they didn’t do much about it. However, other food was great.

We are lucky enough to eat at some of the best restaurants around the world and this restaurant stands up against some of the best! Go for the scallops on the raw bar, the prawn and lobster dumplings and the typhoon chicken and you can't go wrong.
