We visited Jaffna for a 3 day stay and found it difficult to find good, clean places to eat. After reading the previous reviews, we went to Mangos on our first night and found the food pleasantly appealing. We ordered a dosa and a rice dish which my husband said tasted very authentic. Ended up visiting this restaurant two more... More

The food was good - just what we were looking for. Efficient service and the lime soda was better than what I've had in Colombo! Prices are cheap and portions are satisfying. Would definitely visit again :)

This restaurant serves variety of South Indian food. Good quality for reasonable price. Close to Kovil Nallur Kandaswamy. For the dinner, the kitchen starts at 17:30, before that you will get only drinks. We arrived at 5pm so had to wait some time. Mosquitoes here are really numerous and hungry, so take measures.

Ate here five times over three days. Very professional service, great South Indian food like dosas and idli. Enjoyed watching the dosa maker at his station. Nice environment for a meal.

Great dosas. Good curries. Fresh juices. Easy to find (huge neon mango on the street side) and just around beautiful Nallur temple. Mangos is large enough to welcome you and your friends at any time.

We had a selection of dosas at this vegetarian restaurant in Jaffna. Good quality food, fruit juices and excellent value. Note it doesn't serve alcohol. The tip is to vary what you order if in a group; as well as the dosas which come in a huge range of options (although with the same accompanying sauce and chutney), try out... More

Being the only guests at around 2pm, we had the choice of 2 dishes only. The taste was good average, not more. We ordered tea which never was delivered.

The food here at mangos is just incredible, it's cheap, delicious and quick to arrive. We ordered a cashew dosa which was delicious, but we didn't stop there - we ended eating about 4 different ones! They each come with a variety of yum sauces to dip your dosa into. Highly recommend

Had an early dinner with my colleagues, really good food, nice and clean place........the service is good but its better if you have someone with you who speaks Tamil. They have a variety of fruit juices and/ tea coffee available, you can order different types of Dosa, fresh and tasty. One of the best places in town to have a... More
