One can taste it too as, despite being very simple foods, they pack a unique flavour that can only be from a love for bakery. It is a tiny... More

I had a salad at Mango Ginger and it looked amazing. It was very healthy and a good afternoon meal. The people were very nice and I loved the environment of the restaurant. I think I will go check it out one more time before I leave. Would recommend!!

Mango Ginger is a staple for many Capetonians, especially those who like healthy food or who have a gluten free diet. Make no mistake, the rest of us can find plenty to like from the freshly squeezed juices (try the melon and mint) to the delicious specials on the blackboard every day. I had a gluten free chicken pie and... More

Staff were always so friendly. It's a gem of the Obs. Whille it's in the quieter part of the Obs, which is less frequented by visitors, walking... More

Wonderfu to see the Mango Ginger team thriving in their 'new' location. More space with lovely much improved outdoor seating area. Healthy, tasty food still as delicious as the first day I visited 2 years ago. Perfect for lunch with colleagues or friends.

If you are wheat or gluten intolerant then this is the place to satisfy your taste buds. The quiche and salads are so nutritious and filling that I always end up with a yummy dessert like a chocolate and ginger mini cake to take home. The energy bars are also a favorite. I do believe that when a meal is... More

It was a great move for mango ginger to move to this new bigger venue. So many dishes in offer for people with food tolerances, ie. gluten free. Great variety and the food is really good!
