Lovely food, good service and nice atmosphere. Also try the sister restaurant in East Cowes. I expect it is just as good!

The food was pleasant but the service was lacking to say the least. Food and cutlery was 'plonked' on the table rather than served. The above fades to insignificance though compared to the way the bill was presented. They started off by giving us the wrong bill. Once they brought the right bill it was incorrect. To make matters worse... More

Bland and non authentic food, pathia was sweet and nothing else, was not asked how my meal was during the meal or when table cleared. Three dishes tasted the same. It's not cheap or even reasonably priced - expensive and rubbish. I love a good curry, the food here is not authentic, engaging or challenging in any way. Sloppy attitude... More

We found that the food was good but the service was a little slow even though they weren't particularly busy.

We had often driven past the Purple Mango in Shanklin High Street but, until earlier this summer, had never gone in. We wish we had tried on earlier visits. We have now been 4 or 5 times during 2014 and will certainly return next year, when we come back to the island. The ambiance is very welcoming, the staff top... More

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.
