We ate a few times here, food is perfect, juices are made freshly and thick, prices are cheap compared to the quality. Two Dinners (Dosai and similar things), lunch (Thali) and a packed lunch for our train journey to Colombo. Everything was very good! When we had the lunch thali, it was after bad food I ate at Cosy Restaurant,... More

REALLY bad restaurant. We were used to spicy dishes since we were in Sri Lanka for 3 weeks at that moment, but it was WAY to spicy, even if we asked for non-spicy dishes. The service is actually the poorest we had in a month in SL. It’s so slow my wife felt asleep before having the first of the... More

We went to Mangos for dinner in the outdoor pavilion like area. The food is delicious. We ordered Mangos special thosai, cheese and normal kottu and masala thosai and everything was equally tasty. The place was crowded by the time we went there but no wonder as the food is really good and cheap too. The waiter who served us... More

I had just one lunch there - a thali. The curry were nice and not too heavy with a good flavour. Actually one lunch gave two of us a good light meal. The place was empty when we arrived but the waiter started the fans and it was pleasant.

I spent two month and a half in Sri Lanka and I tried maybe 50 different rice and curry. This one is the best I had. The lasi (pineapple) was also very good and the service was lovely.

Quick and pleasant service. Nice outdoor area with big ceiling fans.The masala dosa was tasty and fresh. Didn't compare to Dosa from the streets of Mysore, India( the home of good genuine dosa),but not a bad effort. Portions could be a little bigger. Plenty of fare for those on a budget.

Good fresh food, excellent service. Very cheap. High recommendation! The restaurant is clean and there is a good turn over of customers so even if busy you won't have to wait long.

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
