Eating here with two teenagers in July 2013. We stayed at Mantra on the Park and Red Pepper was a 5 minute walk away into Bourke Street.

Green Pepper is right next door with table clothes, table service and two people eating. Red Pepper on the other hand no table clothes, order and pay at the cash register and people queued out the door.

You have a very short time to choose your meal at the cash register as others behind you wait. Easy choice for the kids Butter Chicken and then we ordered a goat curry and chicken tikka masala.

Take our number find a table and within 10 minutes dinner was here. Meals served with rice and naan.

A cracker of a meal, will definitely go again and would have this time but only found it on our last night.

Came in 2012 and loved the authentic Indian home cooking and Kashmiri nan.

Returned in August 2013 to find a cafeteria style, no Kashmiri nan and they no longer do mango chutney with the per made papadoms.

Ok but no longer the no frills but 5 star experience quality we knew and loved.

Don't you hate it when you order a curry and it comes with a film of oil on top? Well, you won't see that here. The curry is authentic, (yes, I've travelled around India) meat tender and the spice is just right. Very comparable to the curry houses in London and a bonus is the price!!!!
Will visit again, highly recommended.

If the local Indian community pack the place out, it must be good! The restaurant is very basic. But the food was very good.

Had two meals at the Red Pepper. Great authentic Indian food. Reasonably priced. Have set menus (includes a curry and roti / rice) which works to around $12 per person. Ambience is OK, service is nice and food is good
