We had the $75 set menu. Some VERY hot dishes- too hot for most of us. Dessert was “ interesting”. Suggest you order to suit from menu rather than get set menu.

It was one of the best restaurants I’ve been too. The food was amazinggg but what really stood out to me was the service! Best service I’ve ever had! Not one staff member wasn’t friendly. They all said hello and goodbye. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!!

Can only discribe the food as tasteless and would not order the same meals again. And due to price we would not waste the money again

Amazing! Service was 10/10, food was great, drinks menu great... only thing I could critic was the size of the pork in the main could have been cut up smaller to use with chopsticks. But seriously, all in all - ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and will be back for sure!

Most of the plates I had were very enjoyable, or if not my cup of tea, at least unique and creative. Great atmosphere, and the bar staff were very friendly. Would recommend to people who enjoy spice and the idea of a fusion yum cha experience

Interesting combinations. Some dishes super spicy - loads of chillis - but no real warning on the menu about the level of spice. Some dishes absolutely divine though.

I booked a table at Little Valley for lunch on my birthday and they made the day so special! The staff are wonderful and go out of their way to make sure everything is looked after. The interior is modern with lots of natural light and clean lines. We had a few different food preferences at our table- gluten free, paleo and vegetarian but everyone left feeling satisfied! Lots of the food is from Australian sourced ingredients, it looks fantastic and tastes delicious. The summer signature drinks and house infusions go down a treat! I can not speak highly enough of Little Valley! Do yourself a favour and check it out :)

My husband and I had the most lovely dinner. Polite and professional service of the most flavourful and delicious Chinese that I think I’ve ever had! Beautiful cocktails and wine list. All very affordable! We will highly recommend to our friends and will certainly be back - I think this may be my new favourite dinner spot!

We enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant and had good service but found the food extremely disappointing, as were the drinks. We'd heard great things and were celebrating a significant celebration. The potato spring rolls were tasteless and the fish and rice was plain and disappointing. The ink gin I had poured for me was awful - i think the tonic was off and it doesn't mix well with orange which is what it was served with.

Little in name, big on flavours
Little Valley was very impressive.
The best Chinese I have had for a very long time. The food is of a very high standard. So delicious!
The staff were very friendly yet professional. They knew both food and wine menu very well, and made some good recommendations.
The venue is central and the interior was very stylish.
Thanks Little Valley for a great evening :)

A modern twist on traditional Chinese cuisine and very enjoyable dining experience. Went for dinner with family and ordered the $55pp "feed me" banquet. Portion sizes were fair for all entrees and very generous for the main course, good value for money given the quality of food. You'll pay about market value for cocktails ($18-21) but there are some unique options available and are worth the price. Highlights for me were the prawn and truffle dumplings and the friendly, attentive and efficient service.

We have been to Little Valley twice now. The fit out and vibe is great, cocktails yum and food delicious. Unfortunately on our first visit, the waiter forgot to place our order, so had to come and re-take it, and we were rushed through our food. As soon as our main meals were cleared away, the bill was slapped down on our table with no offer for dessert or coffee etc. They did take one of the entrees off our bill to account for the error.

On our most recent visit, we had great food but again service a little lacking. We had to ask for empty cocktail glasses to be cleared away, and to have wine glasses and some of the wine we had on ice to be poured. We then later had to chase for wine top ups. This time, when our main meals were cleared, we were offered dessert but told we had to order and consume it within 15mins to be off our table by 8.30, which would have been pretty rushed and uncomfortable, so we had to miss out on dessert again. Perhaps the sitting times or the food delivery model need to be revised to allow for a better dining experience.

Second time at Little Valley, food was again amazing! Cocktails were unreal. The service however, was ordinary. We ordered certain items on the menu but it had arrived late. An example would be, rice..which is essential to pair with the main meals. However that didn’t come until the very end, our main meal was cold by then.

The food, setting and friendliness of staff was good. However ordering the set menu with accompanying wines worked poorly. Food was rushed, and had new glasses of wine put on the table while we were still only half way through previous one. So rushed, they were not even paired with appropriate food.

Went on a Saturday evening..... there was a great fell as soon as you walked in..... impressive lights! Food was absolutely delicious, such different flavours than the usual Neo Chinese flavours. Presentation of food fantastic as was the service, excellent timing between dishes. Chopped Wagyu Beef a MUST!

We had a lovely long lunch at Little Valley! We have visited Rick Shores on the Gold Coast so we knew the food would be great and we certainly weren't disappointed! The service was the perfect level of attentiveness and the French rose was beautiful.

Would highly recommend for a catchup with friends or a romantic dinner as the vibes were great.
