As a Chinese Food aficionado, I think Red Pepper is the best little hole in the wall chinese restaurant in Clifton. I've been going there since they has a real hole in the wall restaurant further down McMillian Ave by the old Yacht Club. You can eat lunch for under $5 and dinner for under $8 and the portions are decent. A few Christmases ago, I had them make me mass portions of 3 different dishes and served it to all my guests who raved about the food. My favorite: Hunan Double with Chicken and Shrimp, although the shrimp is small, it's a tasty dish. If you want a nice romantic dinner or gourmet chinese, this is not the place, but its perfect for a cheap meal with fast service. For what it is, I give, it 5 stars!
Blue Gibbon has everything you need - affordable tasty food in a clean restaurant. Thankfully, this is one of the few asian restaurants that doesn't decorate out of the Lillian Vernon catalog. No hanging red lanterns or tacky placemats with the chinese astrology signs. Just amazingly inexpensive good food. Lunch is the best bargain in town - you can get soup and an entree for around $6. They offer Vietnamese and Singapore inspired dishes on their lunch menu. Be prepared to wait for a table. Their large dining room fills quickly!
I visited this restaurant for the first time today and I was very pleased with the food, the service, and the prices! The restaurant was very nicely decorated and had a very clean appearance. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. Some of them did not speak fluent English but they were still very friendly. The food was very delicious and fresh. The buffet had a nice variety of food and I enjoyed the hibachi grill and the fresh sushi!
