The working folks hit this place hard at lunch for their fabulous buffet, and they all arrive at the same time like ravenous locusts. Try to beat the crowd. You must beat the crowd. Everything on the buffet is fresh and authentic, you won't find better even in Edison.

This was my first time here. My wife and kids had previously tried it and returned with good reviews. They were right. This is a good go-to place for Indian food. We shared chicken tikka masala, chicken korma plus bread and appetizers. Everything was very good. I expect to return.

I visited Red Pepper twice last week, once for dinner and also for the lunch buffet. The food was delicious and everything we ordered was cooked to perfection.

we dropped into this restaurant last week for lunch. we've had many many dinners here, but not a lunch. and we weren't disappointed. the buffet was great. I had Tandoori Chicken, and a variety of other treats. dessert was great, custard and fruit salad. highly recommend for lunch or dinner. Well managed, nice people, service very good, and relaxed atmosphere.

A South Asian friend told me about Red Pepper, and I'm glad she did. The place serves authentic Indian food that is quite tasty. The vegetable samosas, the chicken tikka masala, and the lamb vindaloo are particularly good. The variety of dishes isn't as large as some other Indian restaurants, but what they do serve is usually very good. And... More
