This is a small restaurant that is big on taste. We shared the salt and pepper prawns entree - just lovely. The coating was very light and the full taste of the prawns came through. I had the beef Saigon style and it was delicious. If we get the chance to go back, I will get the full salt and... More

On a brief business trip and stayed near the venue in Moonee Ponds. Didn't expect to find this gem of a restaurant though. Had 2 entree size servings of Banh Xeo (Vietnamese pork and prawn pancakes) and Bún Thịt Nướng (grilled pork with rice noodles). I get these regularly in Vietnam and these were as good as anything there. Few... More

Went to tea with some work colleagues at the Chilli Pepper and the food was great. Best Salt N Pepper squid we have had. Mixed mains and all were very very good. Prices very reasonable as well.

Chili Pepper in Moonee Ponds is a must visit if you love quality Vietnamese food. Sharing dinner on a Saturday night with a group of friends, everyone rated it amongst the best Vietnamese food we've eaten. Sampling a variety of starters and mains across chicken, beef and seafood, each dish was absolutely delicious and very flavoursome. Good service from friendly... More

Visited chilli pepper Vietnamese restaurant with family. A lovely little restaurant, food was delicious. Meat was tender and flavoursome. Service was friendly but a little slow. Parking can be a little tricky on this busy road.

The food was good without being outstanding. Everything we ordered was tasty, although not sure I would class this as fine dining. We were sat at our table and then left, after quite a bit of time we had to ask for water and wine glasses. Once the food was delivered, no one came near us for the rest of... More

Myself and two work mates on a weeknight. Friendly staff, quick service and decent food. A nice change from the usual Asian style restaurants was the popular music playing at a sensible volume instead of the more traditional. Pick of the night was the vegetable spring rolls which were wrapped in a very light bird nest style wrapping and the... More

Had dinner here. Nothing really wrong with it, but not fine dining. Maybe Vietnamese food doesn't need to be fine. One dish was meant to be a sizzling chilli chicken dish. No sizzle and not much chilli, but quite tasty nevertheless. One dish was mixed vegetables in a clay pot. Not meant to be sizzling, but it was...... Happy enough... More
