The food choices were good, my husband however did not get the wow factor. The raw salad choices were OK, surprisingly they didn't have any organic foods. Customer service was pretty much what you'd expect in a buffet, it was good.

Tried take out and the buffet, and I prefer to order off the menu to get my favorites but the buffet has a lot of good options. I tried a lot of different types of food for the first time and it was refreshing to know that everything was vegan!

You can get this at any Asian restaurant. Is just no meat... I can pick that anywhere. Noting special. The fried cabbage/carrots were good.

You cannot beat the lunch buffet. All fresh and all vegan. Meat lovers would not miss a thing and it is nirvana for those of the vegetarian/vegan persuasion. Add to that a terrific, welcoming owner/staff and you have a great meal experience.

great choice of extremely tasty vegetarian dishes. With a place like this, who needs meat? Can't say much about the service obviously.

This is a good place to get tasty and fast vegetarian food from an all you can eat buffet. The buffet is all day on Saturday & Sunday, and for lunch from Tuesdays through Friday. They have salads on one side and hot food on the other. The meals come with soup and dessert. They have miso/seaweed soup and veggie... More

Healthy vegan food. Curried vegetable was very good. The Pizza next-door was loaded with people. This is what is wrong with our diet in America. There is no punitive damage for serving unhealthy food in America. Doctors are being punished if their diabetic or overweight patients don't do well in numbers. Is that a doctor's fault? We must tax the... More

Vegetarian buffet with additional a la carte menu items. My partner ate the buffet and enjoyed the egg plant and the desert balls, I tried General Tso's vegetarian chicken and it wasn't so good. Not sure what the vegetarian chicken was made off but it was rubbery in texture, the brown rice was gritty but the broccoli was nice as... More

You cannot beat the lunch buffet at Pepper Tree. Forget everything you know about Chinese buffets and their less than fresh and flavorless fare. Pepper Tree is run by a wonderful family and their care in preparation and presentation always makes me wish I could experience their food daily!

This was our fourth visit so I can speak for quality and consistency. Each visit we have been greeted warmly and all our special diet needs have been addressed with ease. The food on the buffet has always been fresh and frequently replaced and always with good variety of healthy choices. Everything about the restaurant is clean and the service... More
