Horrible. The fried rice tasted like boiled rice.
The orange chicken tasted like rubber with tons of sugar.
Chinese food at the food courts in malls are better than this.
Great local spot – Had a great experience here, but what makes Rice Valley even better is that they recycle all of their cooking oil locally for alternative energy! Kudos for "going green" and supporting the local economy!
Avoid the lobster, poor management – My wife and I visited on Friday , March 14, 2008. We were seated next to a loud party and decided to get our food to go. We ordered the "fresh lobster" served cantonese style (among 6 other styles). When we arrived home, we couldn't believe what we just paid $26 market price. First off, there was no tail shell, or meat for that matter. The rest of the lobster was drowning in a "minced pork" sauce. Whoever cut the lobster did so in a way as to cause tiny pieces of shell to be scattered throughout the meat. Between us, my wife and I both had about 2 or 3 bites worth.
I called the restaurant but no manager was available to speak to me...all night. I called back the following day and the manager on duty would only issue a refund if we brought the lobster back in untouched.
Other notes: server was MIA often, seating very tight especially next to a loud group, management needs lesson in customer service
Needless to say, we will never return.
No canned veggies= great fresh taste – This place is pretty new, but I tried the standard lunch special of Beef w/Garlic Sauce. Came w/rangoons and soup. Overall, compared to typical Chinese fare this was one of the freshest tasting dishes I've had. The veggies had pop and the service was excellent. I typically go to CK Shanghai in Wellesley, but I think this may trump that as my new fav.
