You sit at a shared table outside under the fans and eat these crazy cone shaped crisp rice pancakes using your fingers, scooping up Dahl and Veges (there's a sink and soap to wash your hands) and it doesn't get much more authentic than that! Great place to eat in Jaffna. Cheap cheerful and laid back.

The food was really good and different from the every day rice and curry. The staff was friendly and explained the menu to me. Service was quite fast.

This is an excellent vegetarian restaurant. It is not salubrious but is a bright and cheerful place where the food is of the highest standard and the service is quick. I wish we had went there earlier in our visit to Jaffna. Also it was excellent value. Don't ask for beer!

Best place we found in Jaffna for food. We went there more than once and every time we were blown away by the food. Order the mango Dosa which was lovely. The waiter called us a Tuktuk after we had finished as a bit of a walk late at night.

We really enjoyed a dosa and a lassi in the very comfortable relaxed outdoor eating area at Mangos. The service is good, the food is good and enough staff are able to speak English for us to have our questions answered. Definitely recommend Mangos for dinner in Jaffna.

This restaurant offers a great variety of Southern Indian food at dinner, Dosa, Rava etc. For lunch you are limited to Thali, but it is delicious. Definitely the place to eat in Jaffna.
