Nothing to write home about, decent food in a pretty funky setting--service is friendly. Old menus encased in plastic, a jumble of furniture, comfortable but run down booths and table seating. Noodle dishes and stir fry with crispy vegetables, moderately tasty. A good lunch option in Southport.

This past Friday we drove over to Southport to have lunch at Thai Pepper's. Absolutely delicious. The service was quick and friendly and the food was superb ! We had a Green Curry and a spicy "wild" currey ( Gang Par) that I have not seen in other Thai restaurants. These followed a beautiful palate of an avocado sushi roll--again... More

I have been here twice for lunch. They have good lunch specials. Each time I ordered Thai food instead of sushi. Thai lunches include soup, an an appetizers (usually a spring roll served with the entree), and rice. I thought the food was good, even had a little spice to it. Overall the service was quick and friendly, although the... More

I have to have their beef noodle soup every so often! It is SO good! Great price too! Their Thai dumplings are good, I love the special soy sauce! :)

I visited in December and my review complained of the mothball smell. Went back for lunch in January and all the Christmas decorations were put up. The mothball smell was still there but very subtle and once the food came, the great flavor and aromas took over. Had the pad Thai for lunch and it ranked up there with best... More

Living locally we seen to gravitate to a few restaurants and Thai Pepper may be our favorite. Interesting meals and what my wife categorizes as some of the best curry dishes she's tasted. POlus they have offered for a couple of years now an extensive sushi menu. Not the most interesting interior, but the food and service makes up for... More

Authentic Thai for sure...they cook meals for the monks at the local Buddhist Temple. Interior is rather dated looking, but the food is excellent. Some dishes a bit spicy for me..but guests more knowlegable than I praise it. Convenient to downtown, shops all around.

The smell of mothballs is so overwhelming I would have walked right back out had the staff not been so welcoming I felt I had to stay and give it a try. Maybe it was the Christmas decorations pulled from storage. Service was very friendly and attentive. Crab rangoons appetizer was very good. Entree was just ok. Sauce was thin... More

We love this place. You can bring all the new places into Southport, but, Thai Peppers is still #1 for us...

Very bland food, not very friendly and the atmosphere is very dusty and dirty. Maybe they're thinking of TIE food, as it tied my stomach up in knots to eat there. Go to Wilmington to get good Thai food.
