Most of the good Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong are Cantonese...this is an exceptional place for spicy Szechuan food. Don't miss out on the spicy prawns (you have to hold the napkin in front of your face when they "sizzle" them as the fumes are strong!).

The fact that this restaurant has been in business for 46 years is sufficient testimony to its consistent quality. Although on the tourist trail and although it boasts a Bruce Lee connection, it is frequented largely by locals, which is further recommendation.

"Real" Chinese might be just a little bit to much for the newly arrived, but here you can bridge western and eastern world's perfectly. The Red Pepper served yummy, high quality and fastly prepared dishes you might want to try and will for sure love. Servers are fast and working here for ages. The menu offers you a variety of...

I first visited the Red Pepper in the mid-90s on the recommendation of a good friend. On every visit to HK, I have been back, most recently in January. It has not changed and the sizzling chili shrimp and honey bananas are still excellent. The prices are moderate, but worth it. The pictures of the food tell the story best.

The food was amazing, very tasty. As we were a large group we ordered several different dishes, the sizzling chilli prawns being the best but a bit pricy at $HK600. Service was quick and good. Great atmosphere in the restaurant.

The food is really good and tasty. We ordered dried fried beef with chili, wun tun, fried rice and sweet and sour. All are very good and it can't be better. Staff were attentive as we were also there for a very late lunch and there were no one else. We think the price is a bit pricy, but not... More

Went for dinner, and the place, service and food was excellent! We had sweet and sour pork, wontons, dry fried beef with chilli and fried rice. We also had tea and a large beer. The bill was around 600 HKD, which is a bit high, but not crazy, given the quality and location. Also, -1 star for serving shark fin.... More

I have been coming to the Red Pepper about four times a year for nearly thirty years now. Food is always outstanding and the service is usually great, although staff can at times be rushed and unattentive. This time both the food and the staff could not have been better. However... a small portion of sweet and sour pork, a... More

When I arrived in the restaurant, I was the only customer. But it cannot be a reason that the waiters stared me throughout my lunch. I felt so uncomfortable. And they charge u on tea and tissues that you even didn't ask for. Also, you have to pay 10% service charge. It is definitely overpriced. Never come back.
