“The worst restaurant in Joao Pessoa... ”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Worst restaurant ever!
If you are planning to come here, will be better to spend your money on another place.
It took us 1:30hrs to get our meals...

“The best northeastern food in João Pessoa”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

For those unfamiliar food in the northeastern region, this is the best restaurant because it there is a huge variety of regional foods in one place!
Just a caution: There is a great risk of all people who have been there overeat because the food is delicious!

“Typical Traditional Pariaba Food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Excellent food cooked in the traditional way, with so many various dishes to choose. Mangai caters for the individual and family groups.

“Is not what it seems”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Not enough false advertising to be the best restaurant of typical food in town , the service is lousy and the " real " wrestling for a place for a decent meal makes all the unpleasant environment. The concept of a place with a relaxed atmosphere , decorated with local architecture was not implemented well here , considering the lack of places in comes to seats reserved for other customers who serve the hot food counter customers . Ie : if you want to serve once again on the counter , someone , inelegantly , take your seat in the science of all employees who speak nothing ... For options tasting , we have a large table of dishes hot and cold salads , self service style with selections from Northeastern delicacies , often prepared without care, with insects around. Table service for drinks precarious , with grumpy and rude staff offering frozen tropical fruit juices ! . To conclude : exorbitant price for a paltry program. Definitely : I DO NOT RECOMMEND

“Don't miss Mangai”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Simply my favourite restaurant in Joao Pessoa. Definitely a must for everyone who like to taste the big variety of local dishes from the northeast of Brazil. Excellent quality of food and nice atmosphere at a reasonable price. They offer a large buffet with inumerous local specialities. Go for it!
