“The best dining to be found in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I went to the Green Mango on two separate occasions and found the dining experience the best of my trip to Vietnam.

The presentation of the restaurant was great, clean, sophisticated but in no way stuffy. This is especially exemplified in the fantastic staff who's friendly and attentive nature helped me unwind after long days in Hanoi's busy streets.

The menu was varied with a good balance between cheaper, traditional dishes as well as more western dishes. There was also a great selection of drinks and cocktails (The margaritas were especially appreciated!)

The level of presentation that went into each dish was beautiful but secondly, and most importantly, the taste was wonderful. I recall having salmon and blackened sea bass as mains as well as spring rolls. The fish was cooked to perfection (and I am very fussy on this) and the spring rolls were deliciously crunchy and fresh.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place. The great staff and food is some of the best you'll find in Vietnam

“Upmarket dining in Vietnam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We ate at the Green Mango 5 times during our 2 week stay in Vietnam and each time was a treat! Our first night in Hoi An we had dinner there with our tour group. We didn’t arrive till late in the evening but the manager and waiting staff made us feel like VIP’s and the food was superb all round. We also attended one of Mr Hai’s Cooking Classes. We cooked a total of 7 dishes in the morning (a tribute to Mr Hai’s patience!) and then enjoyed eating each course for our lunch. We also visited the Green Mango in Hanoi where once again the food and service were exemplary. Overall the inspired menu, selection of drinks (cocktails in particular), the attention to detail, quality of service and the general commitment to providing a special dining experience is worthy of award.
If we go back to Vietnam, we will definitely visit Green Mango again.

“Fantastic service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We went to green mango for lunch and dinner during our stay in Hanoi.
Very impressed both times with the service, food and drinks (fantastic cocktails!) and value. I couldn't believe that some of the dishes they were serving were so reasonably priced!
Standout dishes were the pesto gnocchi, smoked salmon on brioche and lamb sausages. The passionfruit caipirinha was lovely too.

“Nice fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Really like the fish stewed in claypot, singapore chicken, wok tossed green salads. A bit pricy however you get what you pay for!

“Delicious!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went there based on our hotel recommendation. Initially we would like to go to Koto unfortunately it quiet far from our hotel and 3 of us really tired after back from Halong Bay. Food was really good and really big portion. I ordered noodles which I can't remember the name but really fresh. And I love their spring roll :). Staff was really friendly and they always make sure you enjoy your food.
