Very good Indian cuisine, with friendly service. Nothing outstanding, but we had a pleasant meal and the prices were reasonable.

Service was attentive and we were not left waiting for anything. Prices very reasonable and portions were of a generous size. Would definitely visit again.

The name is Mango - as in the fruit of the same name, not Margo - as in Penelope Keith's character in "The Good Life" (only without the "t"). The clue is in the photo. That aside, the best Indian cuisine I have tasted. Long may you last.

We frequently purchase food for a takeaway from this restaurant, but also we have had party nights there where we have really enjoyed the atmosphere.

The Purple Mango was very good value for money. Had a lovely meal with complementary Baileys after. Very clean and the waterfall effect was interesting.

Don't agree with other review that this place is not for couples. On our visit it was full of only couples. Food was lovely. Nothing special that other Indian restaurants don't have but all you need for a good meal out with friendly attentive service. Decor is very cosy, comfy and appropriate. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic setting with a waterfall window. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The restaurant was not that suitable for couples but would suit a larger mixed group.
