Changed My Life

I don't make a habit of hyperbole but when I went home after eating at Mangos (the first time) I told my travel companions that I could confidently say that the Dosas I enjoyed were among the best meals I've had in my life. I couldn't think of a better one of the top of my head so Mangos could... read more

MANGOS - a decent place to dine in Jaffna. Reaching Mangos is easy, located within the Jaffna city limits - just behind the well known Nallur (Kadaswamy) Temple. This allows the visitors to have a good meal during the trip around Jaffna. Apart from the Service the Meals are really good, can enjoy a variety of Indian Food and Rice... More

Let's get the bad news out of the way first. We were being eaten by mosquitoes at an alarming rate, even as we were enjoying our food. Wearing long socks and long pants would have helped matters. We asked the waiter what we should order -- and just as another reviewer stated, they were out of items, but quickly suggested... More

The open kitchen and restaurant adds to the ambiance. Kids friendly. spacious seating area, once in you wouldn't feel it's converted resident. Good service and friendly staff. Some items on the menu were not available the day we visited, however the alternatives were very good. Limited parking when capacity. A definite recommendation for a nice evening vegi meal.

Our Sri Lankan friend recommended that we all go to Mango's for our first night in Jaffna. We were not disappointed - impressive plates of variations on the theme of Dosai did a lot more than satisfy hunger. And the guys serving are very helpful too. Go there!

Busy place later on in the evening ... mostly a dinner spot serving a small but decent menu of tasty food. Very large dosa's (which are available only after 6 pm for some reason (odd since it's usually considered a breakfast food). Good and friendly staff who speak English.
