I came here with another Asian because it was recommended and we were disappointed. Perhaps because we are Asians. Thai green curry is definitely below average.. noodle is average. The Thai owner is very friendly but the staff, not so much.

The review is probably based on the fact that we sat (no choice!) outside the building and it was really cold with a biting wind. We tried I a few occasions to re-seat inside as tables became available but this seemed to be far too much effort for one of the 2 servers. Our request to turn on the gas... More

A good spot to know about - serving up a slightly different spin on Thai and Japanese cuisine. Starter options like the deep fried eggplant with miso glaze and steak tataki with a miso and peanut sauce are unusual and delicious. Sushi was tasty. Service from our waiter Ashley was friendly and helpful. Prices a little on the steep side,... More

Casual come-as-you-are suburban restaurant that serves splendid Thai and Japanese food and Sushi. It has an open verandah facing the car park and a small seating area inside with aircon, which is great in summertime. Tables have dark green tablecloths and napkins which gives a sumptuous feel to this little place. This is our go-to restaurant whenever our group has... More

Ive been to Green Mango so many times but was lucky to be taken out this week for my birthday to Green Mango. I love the sushi and the Japanese fusion udon noodle soup with tempura prawns. Its my absolute favourite meal in Durban. The staff are friendly and get the job done. Yum!

This restaurant never fails to deliver excellent service and food. We have been here on a number of occasions and still rate it the best for Sushi - we say Sushi because this is what we eat when we go there so not discounting their other food. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is really great too. Well done -... More

This little restaurant has some really good thai food and the sushi is also good. It can get crowded and noisy, but the atmosphere is nice. Its not pretending to be something fancy or elegant and has its own atmosphere. Its good food in a fun atmosphere. I liked it.

They were open on a Sunday evening (many places are not), but initially gave impression they would really prefer we hadn't come! Food average, but not the sort of place I'd put on my "must return here" list.
