This was my first time to visit The Pepper Tree Vegetarian Cuisine. If you are looking for a Healthy alternative this is the place to be. Their Buffet has a wonderful selection of Rice / noodles / veggies / fried broccoli (amazing) and many items that I don't know the name of but were fun to try and delicious!

So... I am not a vegan or even a vegetarian but I have been here a few times with people that are. Lunch is a buffet which is a great way to try new food. I enjoyed most of what they offer but the springs rolls and the kale bites are delicious. Not a huge variety but enough with salad... More

Best vegan I have had eating out. Highly recommend the buffet. Good service, very clean. Parking was the only issue since it is limited.

This popular family-operated all you can eat buffet is far above and unlike other vegetarian restaurants or Asian buffets in that the food is high quality and non-greasy and not loaded with soy. The veggies are prepared in a tasty, interesting, healthy way and they will point out gluten-free dishes. The soup, salads and desserts are all very good. I... More

As always, the buffet is quite a treat. For someone like myself that can stash away 4 plates in a row, definitely a deal, too. Everything is fresh and kept immaculate. The flavors are excellent and the food typically light. Overall, if you like the taste of veggies, this is the place to go. No, it is not fancy, but... More

It is not a fancy place and it offers a veggie buffet - however, the different dishes were all excellent in taste - from the kale to the tofu, over the noodles and the sesame balls - all freshly made and delicious. Also, value for money is unbeatable: all you can eat for 12 USD. Service could be friendlier (one... More

We went to Costco accross the street and then came here for vegan lunch. We had General Tsos Veggie Chicken and Sweet & Sour Veggie Fish Sticks. Brown rice was good. Vegetables just the right crispiness. Good favor.

I've been going here for lunch once every few months for years (when I remember and am near Greenway Plaza). Love the cold tufu, pumpkin, and various Chinese greens. Very casual, quiet and tasty. Has gotten a bit more expensive over the years (almost $12 with tax now maybe). Food is very good but dishes have remained exactly the same... More

This place is a quaint little placw with the yummiest vegetarian food. As I have said on previous reviews, veggie meat substitutes can tend to be a little salty if you have sodium restrictions. Again that being said, they serve so much more. I have tried tbeir lunch buffett which is very popular. I have also tried their take on... More
