“I don't do Sushi, my date loves it. Green Mango kept us both happy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

tucked away in the corner, not many people that I know are aware Green Mango exists. service was attentive & the food was of a decent standard. If you like sushi, you will be happy. I am not a fan of it & the alternatives were average, hence the rating.

“The Best Thai Restaurant in Durban”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Thai place that offers more than just Thai food. Serving Japanese and Asian food. The angry curries have to be the best but be warned they are hot, but very tasty. Totally recommended and the owner Rodger is very friendly and welcoming.

“Crispy Duck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Ok so not the nicest view or the best neighbourhood but the food is amazing! The Crispy duck is amazing, and I literally crave it every few months! Worth every cent!

“GREAT FOOD , BEST VALUE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

My wife & I headed out to Green Mango for her birthday celebration.

The food was excellent and service fun & attentive.

The Sushi selections are extensive. The portions selected were freshly made & excellent.

Prices are medium , value good.

Parking onsite is always limited but plenty parking in the street. Car guards seem to be on the ball !

“Great quality sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We always get the sushi at Green Mango because they excel at it. The flavours are simple and uncomplicated, but very good. Their sashimi is always of great quality.

This time around I tried the tempura as well. The prawn tempura was very good, but I was disappointed with the vegetable version - just a single zucchini cut into four strips was not what I was expecting - some variety would have been appreciated.
