Dinner at the Green Mango was good. The service from both the host as well as our waitress was probably the highlight of the evening. They really pay attention to their customers which I always appreciate. The sushi I ordered was good, fish so fresh. My friend ordered the kingklip which was ok. The bed of stirfry veggies was basically... More

The Green Mango was incredibly tasty, possibly the best miso soup I've ever had. Prices are a little high, but great service. Good menu selection, all round a worthwhile place to visit. Nom a nom!

Do yourself a favour and go to Green Mango for the Steak Tataki starter. The popeye crispy spinach is highly recommended too.

We had a table for 6 and were served a great meal with good selection of wines. My daughter who is a UK resident and travels widely, was thrilled to see the range of sushi available and the freshness of the fare.

We had a table of 7. We felt like sushi starters but were told by the only waiter on duty that sushi would take 45 min and he recommended that we try something else to start. We went for Beach Garden salad, tempura prawns and fried wontons. All were excellent. Mains of crispy chicken and crispy duck - also great.... More

Loved that there is now a branch in Umhlanga ! The food is fresh and authentic! Very tasty and full of flavour! I rated it very good because the service is a bit slow ( not the waiters but from the kitchen) and it has ZERO ambience! I loved the chilly deep-fried whole fish!

We found this little gem some years back and although we have moved away from Durban we continue to return whenever we are in town. Nothing special about the seating and tables other than comfortable but owner/chef Roger produces the best sushi we have ever come across. Curries are also a favorite. Great place to spend a relaxing hour or... More

I have eaten at the new branch in Umhlanga at least 5 times since they opened. The food is absolutely excellent - nicely prepared, nice taste, good flavours. However, the last 2 times we waited more than 1.5h for our food, which is just way too long. The place was very busy, every seat taken - but still 1.5h is... More
