Very very dissapointed

How not too serve duck, we ordered honey duck and chilli duck, they could have used Wattle bark, over cooked, dried out and swimming in a chilli / curry sauce, flesh cooked to biltong stage. Don't bother about mentioning that the meal was of a very poor standard, Roger did the table rounds and... read more

Another visit to one for Durban's Gems, well done to Rodger and his team. I had the sushi, it was fresh and tasty and more than enough, my wife had the crab, as an experiment, it was tasty with good flavours and wonderful taste, and the service was as usual friendly and efficient. Highly recommended for a great dining experience.

Our second visit to The Green Mango last night to celebrate our daughter's matric results. It was just as good as last time! The pluses were the service firstly, the quality and freshness of the sushi, the atmosphere and reasonable prices vs Q4 for example which was our last sushi outing. The minuses were a bit of a wait (they... More

Peak season in Durban and we were battling to find a good restaurant at the last minute. Through TripAdvisor we found The Green Mango was in close vicinity to our location. What a gem of a place this turned out to be , tucked just outside the mainstream of Florida road. The Food was great, service was excellent. Prices are... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Green Mango again and again were not disappointed.Our food was absolutely outstanding! Roger was on top form. Great service and good ambiance. All our meals were done to perfection. My wife had the duck which lived up to its usual reputation.I had their whole silver fish which was superb. All round "world class"

If you enjoy great sushi this is the place - this is not the 'Liquorice Allsort' offering often found - wide choice of individual pieces and combination platters - Sushi not your thing? try the extensive Japanese and Thai menu - my partner is Thai this is one of her favorite places - highly recommended.

With friends, we had a brilliant dinner and the variety was astounding. Service was excellent, very friendly owner [and his mother]. The place is small, the ambiance is quaint and simple. Such a popular place. I will recommend it to anyone.
