Great place to try out something different, but only once. The food is quite simple, just a few pieces of raw beef with some rice and corn. I think it's more about the theatrics surrounding the dish than the food itself (it comes on a sizzling hot plate so you have to cook your own meat). Just try it once... More

I find the portions at Pepper Lunch to be a bit small for the price. But for the more premium options the iron is often too small to cook the meat properly.

This concept was new to me. After ordering your meal at the counter you get a very hot plate and then you have to mix the ingredients on your plane while they slowly cook on the hot plate. I ordered the beef pepper rice meal with a side of sweet potato chips which all tasted good. For $32 we had... More

Good quick bite in the city, no fuss delicious. Must try is the Kim chi beef cheese rice... With the well seasoned chips, get it as a combo.. Usually too much for me... I take the other half home for lunch the next day. Bring a container of you can.

Sizzling hot steak and beef bits with accompanying rice or pasta, served double quick. Side salads or greens are a constant in every dish

Good food. Provides a wide range of sauces and items. However not a very good choice to bring little children there as they could easily burn there selves. Overall: very good!! :)

Came here with a bias expectation because I've been to the one in Higashi Shinjuku Tokyo. Although the place we went to was very small and seating was squishy, the food was great. So when we came here in Sydney, imagine my surprise when I saw a pepper lunch! First off, their combo pricing is a bit confusing. Or should... More

Discovered this place 2 yrs ago after a stay at the meriton on kent . Wad looking for a place to eat. All meat is served raw on a hot plate served you have to stir it up until cooked. We get the pepper steak which has rice corn and beef strips. Hands down so filling and only under $10

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
