Not expensive, beautifully decorated, good quality food from typical to usual! I have tried several strange-looking for a foreigner dishes and was not disappointed.

Really good for breakfast or brunch. Huge variety of typical food, the order comes fast to your table, but the staff always seem a little too busy to give customers a simple smile. The place is almost always a little too crowded.

I love food from the northeastern region of Brazil. You get a fair meal but at expensive prices for the city (about US$25/kilo) in this buffet place. The desserts are not good. Service is very confuse and slow!

We were recommended to this restaurant by our taxi driver, who we have become good friends with. He said it was the best and most well-known restaurant for food of the Northeast Brasil. It did not disappoint. A huge food buffet, with literally 25 different entrees. The salads and the desserts were excellent as well. The cost was by weight (R$4.00/100g), which, for the quality of food, was a great price. We will go again.

It was our first time at Mangai and we were impressed by the quality of the food. It is a self-service restaurant, where you can choose what to eat and taste. You pay by weight (USD 25 per kilogram) and it makes your experience not a rip off. Service (drinks) is good and waiters are very kind and attentious.
