I've not eaten in the restaurant before so cannot comment on this part, however we have had takeaway delivered 10+ times and the food has always been excellent,.. Never had a bad meal, plus you can order online which is really handy

Maybe I wouldn't go the the main restaurant after ready the other reviews, but will certainly continue with the takeaways,...

Popped in for a quick curry after the pictures. Waited for a table, despite restaurant (poorly converted office) being half empty. Got first drink relatively quickly, poppadoms about an hour later and grudgingly ordered food (advised not to opt for chapathi as it "would take too long tonight"...not being funny but have genuinely seen chapathi made and cooked over an open fire in a mud hut in India in minutes) and a second drink. No drink or food forthcoming half an hour later, so cannot comment on food quality. Decided we were not enjoying our evening at all, cut our losses, left and got a takeaway instead. Wonder if they've noticed yet....

me and the lads had a gr8 meal at mango grove food was excellent and the staff were ok, we are going to book again . The poppadoms and drink were on table quickly but the starter took
a bit longer than I anticipated. I thoroughly enjoed my garlic jhal lamb. We were seated at the back of the restaurant which suited us as one or two of the lads were a bit noisy. They could have a done with one or two more people on the floor as everytime we wanted a drink we had to draw some ones attention or go to the bar. The decor at the back needs to be livened up a bit as it is just a blank lilac colour at the moment. overall it was a good night out with the lads.

Got sold a dining card at the door last year and thought I would try it out today. Got in restaurant and no one could explain how it worked so he called a college out who spoke in Indian. And I had to ask what he said. And he said 2 for 1 on main meals. Bloke at door said 2 for 1 on everything. Anyway he started taking my order and the phone rang and he just walked off to answer the phone. Then came back to finish my order and had a pint of king fisher that tasted like cider. Waiters in the restaurant looked like people off the street not waiters. Got home and had food. WELL most of it went in the bin it was discusting and my wife is very ill. I will never go to this restaurant again I red the reviews and thought it can't be that bad. Well believe me it is. I would not normally review restaurants but this one is f*****g s**t. Please don't go there.

i went to mango grove on the 14th february with 7 friends to celebrate my birthday . Kamal the waiter was very attentive and went out of his way to help everybody as were all the other staff working on the night . Everybody loved the evening and the food and said they would come back again and would definately recommend mango grove to others. We are all looking forward to going back again soon
