The food here is lovely, no complaints at all, the sushi is some of the best we have had, however the service is really poor, i think its more that there was only 2 waiters on the day we had been there and the place was full, to be honest i think its best to get a takeaway, as the... More

the food is always very good, freshly made. Everything on the menu is good and for me especially the sushi. Big variety and all very well done. The service is very good and efficient.

This is a very unassuming little restaurant with an incredible looking menu! The food is incredible. Everything we had was delicious! An instant on my favourite restaurants list! Will be visiting again soon! Service was great. Food amazing. Prices not too bad.

We are regular visitors to Thai Restaurants, and also to Green Mango in partticular. We ordered the thai green chicken curry , expecting a warm fragrant paste. What we got was a pool of fiery green water which was so severe that neither of the two diners (who ordered that) could eat it. The only waiter on a Saturday night... More

It's been a while since I've had such abysmal service at a restaurant. We were a small party that booked an outside table. Upon arriving, were were told that although a table had not been set for 3 of us, we could sit at a larger one on the verandah - this was absolutely fine, until a lady (who appeared... More

The food here was outstanding. We loved it, from the Dim-sum to the sushi, everything we ate was incredible. It is an interesting place with limited seating. There was one chap running the front of house, taking orders, etc. but when he was available he was attentive. The food though was excellent. I would consider this place gem.

My friend and I enjoyed our meal. We had the tie green and tie red curries. If you don't enjoy hot food take the mild.
