The place is small but so beautiful and well themed. They give you huge plates of food and the prices really aren't too bad. The food tasted amazing and the waiters were so nice. Would definitely recommend.

Ordered our food while shopping next door. The food was ready very quickly. As usual, the vermicelli bowl was fantastic and my husband's General Tso, was also very good. We will be back!

Dear Red Pepper fans... like all of you, I LOVE Red Pepper. I was driving down Maple Road yesterday, and was HORRIFIED to see that Red Pepper is closed! Does anyone know if it closed to move to a larger location (always packed) or is it GONE??! If you have any info, please let me know!!!

Medium size restaurant. Food, service, good seating somewhat restricted, order food by selection is not Buffet style. Red Pepper name can be misleading, parking adequate

Stopped in for lunch with my husband. I had a Vermicelli Bowl and he had the General Tso. The food was very good. My only complaint would be that the staff did nothing about the table of teenagers speaking, almost yelling, very loudly. Every third word was a curse word. It ruined our meal to a degree as we were... More

The service at Red Pepper is fast and courteous. The food is hot and delicious. The Chinese dishes have fresh ingredients with flavorful sauces. They can be spiced to your order. The General Tso's and Shrimp Lo Mein are really good. Their Hot and Sour soup has a great broth and just the right amount of zing. While have not... More

I had phở bò, which is beef noodle soup. I've been traveling to Vietnam to teach a couple times each year since 2012, so I could compare their offering with the real stuff from both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Red Pepper's phở bò was excellent. There were as many vegetables to add to the noodles as you would... More

We end up at the Red Pepper on a regular basis. Good food at very reasonable prices and very fast service. The pho soup is a favorite, as is the orange beef (sautéed and not fried though). Would recommend!!

We used to eat here a lot, finding ourselves in the area on Mondays. Since they started closing that day, we have not been there in some time. While the Vietnamese menu is arguably the star here, they offer good value Chinese specials at lunch. Standard American-ized fare. We had a chicken/eggplant dish ($6.50), and Orange Beef ($7.99, the most... More
