great buffet - Edit

My husband and I have only chosen the Vegan lifestyle in the last couple of months. This place was a great surprise. The food was hot and we were able to try a lot of new dishes. We will definitely go back.

Great buffet! - Edit

I was very happy to discover a vegan buffet. There were a variety of options available, including raw vegetables, stir fry, rice, noodles, curry with potatoes, soup, pot stickers, desserts, fruit, and more. The food was delicious!

It was nice knowing that everything available was free of animal products, and that I could eat anything I wanted. I left feeling very full and satisfied. My non-vegan husband enjoyed the food, too.

Pros: Excellent food, friendly staff, a vegan buffet

Best Vegan Buffet! - Edit

Best Vegan buffet I've had! Food was amazing, well staffed, food always restocked quickly. Mock meats were crazy good, sushi, pot stickers, egg rolls, and more! Lots to choose from! I wish we had one this good in Dallas! Kind of pricey for the buffet on nights and weekends ($16.60) but very well worth it!

Pros: fresh ingredients, delicious variety, 100% VEGAN

Cons: minimal seating during peak times, a little on the pricey side

tried it - Edit

The food is good, but the base price of the buffet is $18 per person and the buffet is very small without a variety of options. I didn't see a menu with a la carte prices. Tried it, it was good.

Pros: all vegan

Cons: small selection of food

Pepper Tree has become my favorite place in Houston. 100% vegan and 100% delicious.
The buffet is really awesome. It's great to have a buffet where you as a vegan can take whatever looks tasty without having to worry about animal product content.
I'd highly recommend it to anyone, vegan or not!

Pros: All vegan, Buffet, Friendly staff

Delicious vegan Chinese - Edit

This place is completely understated. It's in a little strip mall next to Chipotle across the road from Costco. The food is entirely plant based and delicious. You can choose between a buffer or order a la carte. They have a great website. The couple who owns the restaurant is seems just wonderful. I love that they are sharing their culture's food in a plant based form. Such a nice example of how unnecessary animal products are for uncompromised taste.

tasty, mostly healthy buffet - all you can eat - Edit

The salad buffet is pretty good, every veggie tasted fresh and the place was simple and clean. I paid $11.99 + tax for my buffet and proceeded to gorge myself.

I really liked the dumplings and the fried sesame balls. The plant-based meats were pretty tasty too.

Bountiful buffet - Edit

Best Asian Fusion buffet around! Begin with salad fixings, fresh lettuces including darker greens, spinach, kale, peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, chopped vegetables & fruit, add a good choice of dressings. Steamed and fried rice, pakora, mock meats. Excellent flavorful vegetable dishes, steamed eggplant, squashes, spring rolls. Miso, "egg" drop and vegetable broths/soups. Desserts, which I seldom try since I've filled up on the veggies. There is also a menu to order from that includes most of the buffet items. Very affordable prices.
In a busy strip center of restaurants so parking can be tight.

Pros: Best Asian fusion buffet, Affordable prices, Very friendly staff

Cons: Parking tight, Closes midday, Buffet not available on weekends

one of my favorites - Edit

I absolutely love this place. especially their buffet. the buffet has a little more choices on the weekends and cost a little more on weekends. Buffet has a nice salad and fruit bar, some sweets and lots of steamed and fried veggies that are to die for. you can also get fresh fruit juices. i find that nice, because usually you get only sodas and ice tea around here. they do have an à la carte menu, but I must say that I have problems to make a choice from there. there are no pictures and the dish names are Taiwanese if I am not wrong (I might be wrong). from the descriptions I do not really understand what to expect from the dish, but that is a user issue. the staff can also be sometimes a bit strange. maybe super shy. not unfriendly by any means. the owners are usually there and always super nice and more outgoing. they are closed on Mondays and around lunch time it is always hard to find a parking space. so come a little earlier or later. they are also quite full around lunch.

Pros: buffet and a la carte options, fresh fruits, salad, juices available, many delicious veggie options

Cons: menu needs pictures, parking space limited around lunch

Best Veg Buffet in Houston - Edit

Absolutely love this place. A big, tasty selection of all-vegan Asian-inspired foods. Delicious! My advice - Go for the buffet during the day in the week or at the weekend rather than ordering a la carte. Much more choice :)

Cons: Parking

Fresh, tasty buffet! - Edit

Heard about this place via a google search for vegan friendly restaurants. The buffet is absolutely wonderful - it's a bit on the smaller side but each option I've tried has been full of flavor! It is a great value and I would recommend it to anyone. The staff is extremely friendly and has no problem answering any questions you may have. The vegan coconut cake is an absolute must!

Pros: Friendly staff, Fresh Ingredients, Great value

Buffet Regular! - Edit

Pepper Tree was reccomended to me by my health conscious aunt when I moved to Houston in January and I have been a weekly buffet goer ever since. I will admit, I have only been to the buffet but ever visit is a delightful and delicious experience.

The food is incredible and fresh. I enjoy the buffet because it stays the same so I know what to expect every time I go, however I can see how this might be boring to some.

I would highly recommend Pepper Tree to any vegan in the Houston area!

Pros: Fresh and tasty! , Friendly staff, VEGAN buffet!

Cons: Buffet is only all-day on the weekend
