The Purple Mango was recommended by our Hotel owners, and we were very glad of this tip; we have walked past the Purple Mango several times but never tried it before. We loved the decor in the restaurant with and impressive waterfall thing going on down one wall and a flat screen TV showing Bollywood movies discreetly by the bar.... More

We have visited the Purple Mango on several occasions over the last two years. It never fails to Impress and no matter how busy they are the service is always great. The staff are happy to meet any requirement. Beautiful dishes with lots of variety. A must if you visit Shanklin.

Another nice restaurant in Shanklin village. We stayed here for 5 nights and tried various restaurants. This was a nice meal in a lovely restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Good value for money with friendly staff.

As a curry lover, I b-line for an Indian restaurant where ever I'm staying. Have to say I visited the Purple Mango twice during a four day stay in Shanklin. Very impressed by the selection and quality of food. Main course with rice, pappadums, nan, side dish & a drink for approx. £20. Excellent Chicken Madras!

Liked everything. Disliked nothing. Fabulous meals on the 2 occasions we visited. Would definitely go back again with the family when they are visiting and would recommend this restaurant to all if you like your curries!

Service was good, but the food was below average in our opinion, but we are northerners and we like a spicy curry.

We had a table reserved for a post-gig meal. My Chicken Madras was fiery but lacked any depth of flavour a really good curry ought to have. Same with the Bombay Potatoes. Service was fairly monosyllabic, verging on unfriendly. So, okay but I'd go somewhere else next time.

Good service from the time we arrived to when we left. Food was delicious, the chicken captain Pathil is one of my favourites. Lovely decor with modern Indian music videos being played as background music. My only criticism would be that it is sometimes on the chilly side with the air con, so ladies take an extra layer with you.... More

We decided to try this restaurant as it looked so attractive. We weren't disappointed! The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere good. The curry was very good and a reasonable price. If we had been staying longer, we would have visited again. Would recommend.

We booked this restaurant after going to a show at the Shanklin Theatre which is conveniently just around the corner. Staff are very friendly and offer good service. The food was well prepared and presented and spicing with fresh spices was really well handled. We really enjoyed the meal and would be delighted to go again. It is also worth... More
