Was referred by a friend and was very impressed with the whole package. We only knew they had sushi, so the Thai and Japanese menus were a welcome sight. The Tempura prawns were such a treat, as to the chilli crusted calamari. The sushi was good but the chocolate spring rolls stole the show. Mfundo was a very attentive and... More

The food here is incredible. Nothing on the menu will disappoint. Believe me, this place rocks. Just wish we had one in Jo'burg. The crispy chili chicken, the authentic sushi, deep fried banana, dim sum, deep fried ice cream, teriyaki...... I could go on.

We have been invited to try other restaurants that are indeed good, however, when it is our choice, we always go back to The Green Mango as it is still the best for Sushi. We share the platter and it is always excellent!

We were served promptly and politely. The beers were cold. The food was not bland and portion fair. I found it all a bit average but suspect I was expecting a roadside Thai type meal that we had from two previous Thailand trips. It's not a bad place at all and others may love it.

Was excited by the reviews of this restaurant but it disappointed. The pastry on the springrolls was quite dense and the filling flavourless. The green curry was watery and lacked the sweet-spicy quality I was looking for. Atmosphere was dull.

The food here is lovely, no complaints at all, the sushi is some of the best we have had, however the service is really poor, i think its more that there was only 2 waiters on the day we had been there and the place was full, to be honest i think its best to get a takeaway, as the... More

This is a very unassuming little restaurant with an incredible looking menu! The food is incredible. Everything we had was delicious! An instant on my favourite restaurants list! Will be visiting again soon! Service was great. Food amazing. Prices not too bad.
