A must have meal at this restaurant My favourites are chicken tikka, kadai paneer curries. Gobi manchuria was not fresh and I was compensated during my next visit It is in the bourk street so easy with tram station infront of it.

What a magnificent meal we had in red pepper, all the dishes are perfect, specially lamb Rohan josh which was really tender and melt in the mouth, on the other hand service was not to impressive but we can manage it, will back again.

We have tried Indian food at many places in Melbourne and I must say this is the best tasting Indian food here. Very good menu, great staff, good service and great taste. The menu is limited but good choice.

Food was good, service was poor and we had an issue with the front door. Most of our time was spent getting up to shut the door as it was FREEZING!

I visited Red Pepper last weekend. It was super busy but the food was wonderful and so affordable. The Barramundi was delicious and the other vegetarian dishes were also delicious. I will be back soon.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving

One of the very few annoying aspects of this place is they will not allow BYO, however that is most of Melbourne!
