They consistently have great food. They are one of the few restaurants that I feel is worth getting dinner at.

Red Pepper Asian has consistent good service and a good variety on the menu. Menu is clearly labeled as to spiciness so you can choose your preference. Drinks were kept filled. Conveniently located near Wake Medical Center and not far from downtown.

We tried the pad see ew with chicken, sweet and sour chicken, and vegetable fried rice. The veggies were all nicely steamed and not soggy. The medium hotness on the pad see ew was great. My lips didn't burn, but there was still heat while...not overpowering the dish's flavor. The vegetable fried rice had peas, carrots, onion, egg, green and red bell peppers, and broccoli (Finally a place that doesn't make it with mushrooms, yes!). The sweet and sour sauce doesn't have any pineapple, bell peppers, or carrots in the sauce. My spouse enjoys it this way, I prefer it with the fruits and veggie. The price was fair ($30) for three good meals, one meal including an egg roll, and an extra side of steamed rice. We ordered online which was a simple process. I was glad I didn't have to create another online account. However, we never received a notification by email or text that our order was in process or even ready. It also didn't mention how long it would typically take. After 40 mins, we called and our order was indeed ready. The person on the phone didn't know how the online ordering worked and wasn't sure how we were supposed to be notified. We would recommend and eat here again. In the future, we'll call our order in, though. Their online menu is rather nice as for a lot of the items it'll list what's actual stir fried in in terms of fruits and veggies.More

I had heard and read good reviews of this place. I ordered the black pepper chicken, fried rice and two egg rolls . Not good at all. The chicken tasted burnt and I didn’t even eat it all. The rice was decent but needed more...flavor and the egg rolls were very small. This place doesn’t offer combos on the weekends either. Not like what I expected from this place. Save your time, money and energy. Raleigh has way better places than this to choose from when wanting Chinese food.More

Very good Thai food with kind and attentive staff! Our waitress kept our glasses full the entire time, and the food came out fresh and very fast. The prices are fair as well. Would highly recommend the steamed dumplings, Singapore noodles, Malay Sambal Beef, and...most of all the Szechuan green beans.More

I work not very far from Red Pepper and come about once a week. The food is quite good and the service is efficient while friendly. This is a wonder gem that is not so hidden any more. There are very few options for lunch...in this area other than the typical fast food and chains. Red Pepper is a wonderful treat.More

Food here is delicious -- a gem of a restaurant in the midst of a pretty desolate shopping center. Would be a happy addition if they served beer and wine. Definitely worth a visit, however.

Every time we order from them the food has been great! I love being able to order online and have it ready when I get there. The whole family likes their food and the sweet and sour chicken isn't too greasy like some places can...make it.More

Red Pepper has a wide variety of Asian food, all high-quality ingredients. Service is prompte and friendly. The weekday lunch specials are special bargains. My son owns a restaurant near Charlotte, and he is very impressed with Red Pepper. He said he could eat that...food every day. He wants eat there every time he's in town.More

I saw the reviews and tried to find the restaurant. My only complaint is finding it. It is listed as being on New Bern Rd. But it is in a shopping center a about 1/2 mile from the road. You can not see the restaurant...from the road. After I found it, I was not disappointed. Found food to be good and seasoned well. The portion I received was enough for two meals. I will go back if in this area again.More

Sunday lunch, had pad Thai and chowfun. Both was very tasty. Spring rolls are really good. The calamari was unique. It was as though it has pork fat in the batter before frying because there is a pork grind taste to it and it eats...like one. Service was good, food came out quickly. We will be back to try other things.More

Had the steamed dumplings and Thai green curry shrimp. Both were good and generous portions, including the amount of jumbo shrimps in the dish. It didn't taste like authentic Thai but was definitely good! Next time I'll try the Chinese.

We are passing through town from Tucson Arizona and we had a wonderful take-out dinner. We had wonderful Pad Thai that was with beef that was so tender and delicious. The Chicken Sambal was mildly to moderately spicy and really delicious, with lots of stir...fried green beans. We had another shrimp spicy dish that was excellent and also had lots of stir fried green beans, deliciously stir-fried. I would say the dishes weren't as spicy as many Thai restaurants, or Malaysian restaurants, but very very tasty. The quantities were quite robust as well, and reasonably priced.More

Just finished my Basil Thai Chicken. Great. Best flavors I've had from an Asian restaurant in quite some time. Everything was very fresh as well. Will definitely be going back.
