Respond to Review of Pepper Tree
by Joan C.
Review: I went in October 2009. Had the miso soup. Then had moo shoo veggies and fried chicken (both were on the appetizer menu). Chicken was good but didn't have a sweet and sour sauce as I would expect from a Chinese restaurant. Was served with ketchup. Porton size was good-about 25 tater tot size pieces. The miso soup was good but you know, miso is miso, it's hard to screw up. I got the bowl and it was a HUGE bowl. The moo shoo was good and had some fake chicken in it but wasn't remarkable in any way. Came with four pancakes but could have filled 6. I had the dessert sampler - coconut cake, fried bananas and sesame balls with red bean paste inside. The dessert were the highlight of the meal-they were really good and served with melted chocolate - YUM! Service was slow, you have to pretty much flag them down. I wasn't in a hurry as I was eating alone and had a good book. If you want to get in and out quick I would recommend sitting close to the counter/register area so you can get their attention or at least be in their line of sight. They were very nice and the women working made pilot conversation. The man working didn't speak English (he worked as the server busboy). It was a clean place, nice decor. Not fast food like, nice. Bathrooms were very clean. With a green tea added to the above my total was $30 without tax. Not bad considering that there was enough of everything left to easily feed another person or take home for the next day (ok, except for the dessert, I ate it all!). I'm from ATL though so I'm not sure what restaurant prices are like here in Houston.
