I enjoyed a take out dinner for my family from Red Pepper. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was quick, my order was waiting for me at the front desk when I came in. My only recommendation is that they add in some combination dinners on their menu, everything was ala carte.

This rating is based on the food not the service. The place was packed. The food is very good. However, I do not frequent Chinese-Vietnamese restaurants so I had a question about an item in the menu. Well the server was not understanding what I was asking and he assumed I wanted soup. Well long story short. I was really... More

There is a restaurant in Toronto that has the greatest chicken kung pao and sauteed green beans. Red Pepper is a close second for both meals. I must say....I swore off this place a few years ago after having chicken that seemed it was "old" (my companion agreed). The first time it happened, they took it off the bill. The... More

I have been coming to red pepper for more than 10 years. I do like this place and I do like the food but I always feel they have the potential to be something great. It's almost like they're stuck between high-end restaurant and that fast food Chinese takeout restaurant. My quick note to the management. I wish you guys... More

Food is consistently good here. We go to Red Pepper frequently, and my kids love it. Everything seems fresh. The restaurant is a little small, like 20 tables, but tables open up quickly due to the very fast service. Everyone is very friendly, and really seem to appreciate your business.

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
