Had to give it a try after all the excellent reviews. very good food and well presented. Very helpful service, needed guidance with the dishes on offer which we received. However the experience was spoiled a little by the amount of time it took to be served. Sat down at 7.45pm and I think we left a little after 11.00pm. Far too long in my opinion. But full marks for the quality of food on offer.

The restaurant interior is lovely to look at but at lunchtime was rather chilly.
With all the rave reviews we went with high hopes as this is very local to us and we like vegetarian food and hoped they would offer a tasty variety.
Sadly we were underwhelmed. We both had a main course which were equally bland and to be blunt boring. At around £12 each not cheap either.
My wife had been some months ago with a work party and had been disappointed then.
Perhaps we were just unlucky but we will not try again!

Like another reviewer we visited on a busy Saturday evening. The kitchen is small - you can see the food preparation going on, and the volume of orders meant we waited 105 minutes for our main course (drinks, poppadoms and starters had been delivered before that). If we hadn't had such enjoyable company we would have been very fed up. The staff were very warm and friendly, the owner apologetic, the food lovely, but I don't think they could possibly turn out as much food as was on order within a reasonable time in the small kitchen. I would still highly recommend the restaurant but would ensure I didn't visit on a busy weekend night next time.

On the strength of everyone's comments we booked a table at Mango with two friends, arriving at 8 o'clock. The place was busy, as you'd expect for a Saturday night, with tables closely packed. We waited 30 minutes for someone to take our food order, choosing the Christmas special, which comprised of appetiser, starter and curry. We then waited another 30 minutes for 4 dry poppadums to arrive. Things did not improve, and after a long wait a cold starter arrived followed by the curry. By the time we finished it was 10.30. The owner was very apologetic, offering us free drinks, which we didn't want as we were there for the food (which, when it DID arrive, was very good).
Surely the solution would be less tables, allowing the chefs to cater more efficiently?

Hi BVMum,

Thank you primarily on the nice comment about our food, as you saw everything is made fresh to order. Now all we can honestly do and say to you is sorry, this was not and will never be the experience we want you to have at our restaurant. We accept full responsibility on everything that happened that evening, it really wasn't a good reflection on our normal weekend service at all, we're embarrassed and ashamed of that evening. We know as customers you expect a few things to be a given and everyday we deliver these things effortlessly but for an array of reasons, it just wasn't our night.

We remember your table and the only point in which we'd like to clarify is the starters. You ordered the mixed pakoras and the mango special chaat. The pakoras came to you within two minutes of coming out of the hot oil so they were hot, I think that the chaat is what you're referring to as cold, which it is. Its a hot patty which is then smothered in masala yoghurt (cold) then topped with different chutneys and toppings. We have taken this point and modified this on our Christmas menu, pointing out its served at room temperature.

I know the title of your review is 'Never again' but if you do happen to find yourself in our premises again we would like to offer you a 25% discount on both food and drink.

Our sincerest apologies again.

Mango Team

Our first visit to Mango last night - nice ambience, efficient service, excellent food, good value. We had no idea what to order and the waitress was very patient and gave us good advice. The food was lovely - adequate portions, different flavours and textures: couldn't fault it.
