Deserving of excellent reviews

Excellent value for money. I tasted my first Tamil food and it was most enjoyable. The service was very quick and efficient. The only suggestions I can make is that it is better to remove the hard inner core of a pineapple before serving on a fruit plstter. Also I suggest western cistern toilets... read more

Went for dinner and there wasnt much of a crowd. Food was OK but nothing to really write home about. Appeared to have a better time in the past. Popular with expats but very few locals. Food was moderately spicy and adequate in quantity. Would not do a repeat visit. Also not cheap.

We chose Mangos because of its good reviews and were not disappointed by the food or the ambience. The traditional lunch was excellent - hot and spicy and not too overwhelmingly large. Just right for lunch. And very inexpensive. Our waiter was probably not having a good day, but nevertheless the food came promptly. The overhead fans kept the air... More

After just having an absolutely beautiful meal at Mangos I felt I had to post about the diner - quite possibly one of the best I've had in Sri Lanka! We arrived a little early for dinner but the staff said we could sit in the outside eating area and provided us with drinks. As soon as they began service... More

The dinner here is far better than the lunch - the lunch is fine, but the dinner has tons of options and amazing dosas and uthappams.

Being relatively close and a short walk to the Nallur Kovil was a definite plus as it makes good sense to go there after evening Puja at the temple. Great setting and service and excellent food! Reasonably priced too :-)

We specifically went there for the South Indians dosas and we were in the right place! It feels like you are in Chennai (India), same taste, same chutney, the food is perfect!

Came for dinner on 1st June 2015 w my family for dinner based on review in Trip Advisor. What a nightmare. First waiter came to us after 15 min, then he brought a single menu card for 13 of us. 3/4 of the menu item is not available and the waiter was rude when asked . He just mentioned these... More

Went as a large group of 25! They made all the effort to rearrange their tables for us. Not surpringly the service was a bit slow and they got a couple of the items mixed up, but the food was great. The kids loved the puri and the paper roast.
