Definitely one of the better places in Jaffna

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.

We visited this place a few times. At lunchtime there is a set menu and in the evening a wide range. Very cheap, well worth visiting. We went during August when the festival is on at the temple 100 yards away. Amazing experience - don't miss it. Get to the temple by 16:00 - all over by 18:30 ish.

Been in Jaffna for two nights and couldn't resist going there on the second night again. The best Dosa I've had so far, and one of the best food we've had in Sri Lanka.

I go to Mangos every time I'm in Jaffna, their signature dishes are the mango special dosa, family dosa (feeds 4) and cheese kottu! its a bit pricey comparing to other vegetarian restaurants but its their delicious food that keeps people coming back.

Lovely place to visit. I love the views and the people who lives there. They are so friendly. Nice ecology though.
