The Green Peppercorn is an Afro-Asian fusion bistro situated in Morningside.
I had not been back to the Green Peppercorn for 18 months and I was disappointed.
The staff were as excellent as I remember and the ambiance was warm and friendly.
The menu was varied and each dish sounded very interesting.
But the food portions were too generous. The plates and my stomach were overwhelmed.
My main dish was grilled kingklip and prawns. It looked as if each item had simply been piled high on top of each other with a sauce and sweet mayonnaise poured over the small mountain of food in the middle of the plate.
It was difficult to discern the taste of the individual items too. The sauce and the mayo drowned out the other flavours.
No subtlety in food presentation and no delicacy of taste from the dishes. Hence, my disappointment.

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 ✔
My husband and I went to the Green peppercorn 6 years ago on our 1st date. We returned 6 years later and the restuarant has totally transformed. The menu is incredible and the food exceeeded our expectations. The staff are attentive, helpful and such a pleasure to deal with. Fabulous experience
One of my favorite places! Good food, great ambience.
This is one of my favourite places to eat. The service is impeccable. The food is delicious, last time i visited i had their main tasting place with 5 different mini portions. Some of tge food arrived cold which was dissapointing. The salmon i didnt enjoy as well as steak bearnaise. I loved tge dim sum and the coriander dipping sauce. The tuna was amaxing as was the fillet with dill cream sauce.
