It's a shame that for a city that has such great restaurants that Portland does not have one Chinese restaurant that meets the same standard. There are a few good restaurants but Chinese restaurants should not be so expensive. Valley Chinese is a good but not great alternative. The best thing is that it is affordable. You can get a...

If you haven't tried the HIGHLY UNDERRATED Valley Chinese Cuisine, you must! Not fancy...but oh so yummy! The menu is extensive. And they deliver...quickly and at a reasonable rate. They will become your new favorite!

Valley is our go to Chinese. Its good, cheap food, fast. The brown sauce they use tends to run on the sweet side. Lunch and dinner combos are a great value.Not going to win any gourmet awards, but this is basic, good food, made fresh.

Had lunch and the Orange Chicken was prepared excessively sweet and not very tasty. The lunch combination plates were small and overflowing. The wait staff was prompt and courteous. The Men's restroom was filthy and a commode was stuffed with paper towels and plugged up.

We live nearby so this is our go to place for Chinese food. It's a family run business that's great on service with food to match. One of our favorite dishes is Gen Tso's shrimp! A nice change of pace from the traditional chicken. If you're tired from a long day at work they will deliver their specialities right to... More

I'm pretty sure we got Chinese food delivery from Valley's this year on either Christmas or Thanksgiving. It was a holiday and, as always, they were there for us! I'm not even sure if there are any other delivery options for Chinese in Portland, we don't need to look. I'm a big fan of the general tso's chicken and she's... More

The soups are great, including the hot and sour soup. NOT at all gelatinous, like so many places make it. Wonton soup full of good stuff and flavor. Pork fried rice good. Beef teriyaki very flavorful, but a bit fatty. BUT what happened to the days when sweet and sour shrimp was shrimp and veggies in a delicate sauce of... More

My husband and I ate at Valley yesterday and were pleased with the experience. He thought the egg drop soup was among the best he had ever eaten. I couldn't say the same about the chicken rice soup. It was ok, but it was not memorable. The entrees, however, were excellent. The beef with mushroom was filled with tender beef... More

This is nothing to look at from the outside but the food is good. We had two dinner combinations. Mine was the typical crab rangoon beef teriyaki chicken fingers rice and pork spare ribs. The beef was tender and yummy, the pork was a bit dried out for my liking, the Rangoon was good and the rice was good tasting... More
