Critic's review

Zodwa Kumalo-Valentine

Food
An extensive menu – all presented on an iPad – includes everything from breakfast served until 11.30am to casual meals until 5pm and a finer food offering until 9.30pm, when the kitchen closes. For breakfast that's different from the norm, try the Shanghai eggs comprising steams buns with crumbed poached eggs drizzled with coriander chilli sauce and the Piggy Wiggy with two pork bangers, quinoa and mango mojo. The smoked ostrich wrap is tasty, as is the moreish fillet steak sandwich if you’re not looking for a heavy meal.

The Starter Tasting Plate and the Famous Plates give you a good idea of what you can settle on for mains – especially if you’re dining in a group. The former gets you four mini starter plates on one plate and the latter a choice of six mini portions. The Hong Kong fried chicken, the fillet with béarnaise sauce and the dim sum with spinach and pesto are good.

If you’re after a substantial dish, opt for the seared tuna with sesame seeds, baby marrow strips, red pepper, red cabbage and noodles. It’s a feast for the mouth. The red Thai chicken is full of flavour – ask for fresh chilli if you like it hot – and the braised pork belly with baby spinach pesto and potato rosti is also a good option.

Dessert options are worth sampling – these include a piña colada panna cotta with ginger beer and ice cream, chocolate fondant with mint and lemon grass ice cream and a green apple cheese cake with coconut ice cream.

  • I can't believe we've only just recently discovered this gem 😍. Wow! The food is absolutely amazing with modern and sophisticated plating. The staff are well trained with brilliant attentive service. All waiters are knowledgeable and can advise on any dish on the menu. I also love the fact that this place is so tech-savvy (electronic menu,GREAT app etc.). I can highly recommend this restaurant. Whether it is for a light lunch, business lunch, date night or just enjoying special time with family & friends, The Green Peppercorn will certainly impress. Ps. My absolute favourite on the menu: Fillet Bearnaise ✔

  • Shout out to The Green Peppercorn for having an amazing variety and quality of food, really friendly waiters, a stunning atmosphere and for their unique rewards program that they run through their very own app. They're constantly running competitiobs on their Facebook page where you can win food vouchers; their app has a 'scratch card' tab where you can win things (I think it resets ever week or two) and they have a loyalty stamp tab on the app where you earn stamps for every R200 you spend and eventually you can redeem a R1000 food voucher. If the food and service isn't enough to keep you coming back the rewards definitely will be. Do yourself a favor and try them out :) Get the app today and try your luck with the scratch card - maybe your first meal will be on the house. I shared some food with a friend there (pic attached), it tasted amazing, portions were very filling and the presentation was stunning. We ordered the chorizo and chicken arancini balls; the double dipped Korean fried chicken with lemon hollandaise and then chilli dusted squid. The total for these 3 items was R200 on the dot and I paid using a voucher - only paid extra for the tip and the drinks.

  • The food was terrific. Four of us went there for lunch. The fusion menu was exciting and it stimulated our taste buds. We were not disappointed when our chosen dishes came along. Go there hungry and enjoy it all! The service was professional and unassuming. We ate in the bar area which is small and does not have much ambience. Next time I will eat in the main area. My one complaint, is that the process of choosing wine is silly and unnecessarily difficult. You have to choose the wine by peering at bottles and labels displayed on quite a high wine rack.
