We've been going to Rice Valley for about 10 years; once or twice a year. We usually go for lunch and that is not their busy time. If you want Chinese food and a subdued atmosphere, this is the time to visit Rice Valley. We've never had a meal here that we would rate below excellent. A typical Chinese menu... More

I was actually quite disappointed with both the ambiance and the menu selections. Each of our dishes was over-salted, and in both cases we found them otherwise to be lacking in flavor.

Rice Valley offers Chinese food with fresh ingredients. Service is incredibly fast, so get ready for it. You'll order and your meal will be served within ten minutes.

We gave it three tries during different years, and no! NOTHING SPECIAL.This place is not worth your time and money. The food is very uninteresting, bland and extremely greasy. The cheap quality does not match the price which is unreasonable given the menu and unenthusiastic service. Sadly, the place is already "old". It needs a good sprucing, inside and out.... More
