Wonderful Sushi!

Sat outside and had a great evening. Food was really good and the waiter was really fun. Enjoyed the sushi very much. The portions are very large so think about sharing! Good wine list too.

Another one of my newly found favourite spots. The food is very reasonably prices and offers a wide variety of Sushi, Thai type food. Our waitress was absolutely awesome, friendly and paid attention to everyone eating here. As vegan its a nightmare trying to find places to eat out at, when your waitron is able to offer substitutes they get... More

Extensive menu with freshly prepared and beautifully presented food. Service is well above average, friendly, efficient. Make this restaurant a once-a-week destination.

We had a delicious selection of Sushi tonight, followed by a yummy dessert (fried icecream!), served by very friendly staff! Location and interior aren't particularly nice or romantic, but the great food compensated that by far. The restaurant was very busy, so make sure you have reservations - especially on a weekend.

I heard from friends that this place was 'AWESOME' but they were very wrong. Really disappointed about the quality of Sushi served. The restaurant was really confined. Have to wait a long while to be seated. Took a while to recive my order. Well not a place I will visit again.

Sushi was great, but we were not impressed with the Thai food. Duck was over cooked. Nothing great! Service was ok. Waiter was alone and could not attend fast enough to general service needs. It's okay...will not return.

I was in Durban for work a couple of weeks ago and decided to give Green Mango a try because it had such high ratings. I was pretty disappointed, though. I ordered a Thai noodle dish, and it had zero flavor. I mean absolutely zero. It was just a plate of mushy bland noodles with mushy bland meat in a... More

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 gave us a wide miss about... More
