A Favourite that Never Disappoints

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

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
