By closing the restaurant and putting aircon in the restaurant has lost its soul. Big choice of dishes, but almost too much choice.

It's a self service restaurant, a huge variety of local food, it's good to try all of them in small portions. It's a good atmosphere, even being a big restaurant, it can be crowd, arrive early. I liked a lot the place/food and recommend it. Good price as well!

The food is just OK, nothing to die or kill for. Fairly priced, note there are many restaurants in the area serving bad food for more money, but also there are restaurants serving better food for less. Ambiance is good, but still it was not close to a culinary experience. Don't you dare to ask for a Cappuccino.

Don't worry about your lunch, you can come to Mangai and find our typical food in a good atmosphere. Good music, not too loud. I'll return.

It's amazing. The amount of choices you have is astounding. This restaurant is not "a la carte", you just grab your plate, pick from the hot pot / trays around (easily over 30) as much as you want, and then you pay for the weigh displayed (pretty typical around here). But the food, I cannot recommend this enough. All local... More
