The restaurant is hidden in a small alcove, easily accessible from Nanjing Road. The restaurant was large but decor is rather dark. It could do with a little more Turkish decoration. The meal was great! Really authentic Turkish food nicely presented and backed up by good efficient service. For starters we had the yoghurt with mint together with a warm hummus and shredded lamb, followed by dolma (stuffed vine leaves) and Kofta. The meal was finished off with a wonderful angel hair dessert and Turkish coffee. All in all, a great experience at a reasonable price. I would definitely go back just for the food.

I went last night for the second time. On the first occasion I had the dinner set menu which was really a lot of food. This time I ordered a la carte. The slow cooked lamb dish - cooked for 6 hours is very good and not available on the set menu. I notice they do lunch sets for RMB138 which given the quality of the food seems good value. Service is not always as good as it could be.

Black Pepper provides an excellent balance between price and quality. The food is amazing, and it won't leave your wallet too much lighter. The staff are very efficient and speak good english. The atmosphere is casual yet suitable for more formal or romantic occasions.

The food is known all around Shanghai for it's authentic take on modern turkish cuisine. The lamb dishes are unlike anything else in Shanghai.

Although the desserts look kind of strange in the menu, you will regret it if you decide not to order one of them!

Went for a meal while away on business- plenty of availability on a Friday night in August.
Service slow, and food average - nothing special in my opinion. Service slow and not very helpful - wanted to upsell and offer the more pricey options and unclear regarding portion size.
Several of the wines on the wine list were not available, but this was not indicated until we tried to order them.
Not great value for money - I have been there before and it was considerably better.
They don't accept Amex.
