I have been to Green Mango a number of times and it is always excellent. Roger runs a great establishment. The 4 of us had a delightful meal as usual. Tom Yung Soup and Sushi. You can't go wrong!!!! I can't wait to go back again

The food here was outstanding. We loved it, from the Dim-sum to the sushi, everything we ate was incredible. It is an interesting place with limited seating. There was one chap running the front of house, taking orders, etc. but when he was available he was attentive. The food though was excellent. I would consider this place gem.

My friend and I enjoyed our meal. We had the tie green and tie red curries. If you don't enjoy hot food take the mild.

Not a very fancy looking place but the food is always good. They do great sushi and my friend always enjoys their noodles.

Menu offers a good variety. However, we found that the kitchen service needs considerable improvement. The two of our four orders arrived well before the other two on cold plates, so the food went also cold whilst waiting for the other two orders. Quality of food was good, but ruined by everyone's meals being cold. Two of us asked to... More

After two visits to The Green Mango, I can confidently say that we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The food is so full of flavour and the sushi is freshly made! Whether you're looking for a chilled evening out or even a date night that's not totally romantic, this is the ideal spot!

My husband and I have been going to Green Mango for the past seven years, and it is still outstanding. We shared the starter platter for one, and for the main course we have crispy duck, with the fried ice-cream for pudding. The food was delicious, and the service was great. I can't wait to go there again.

Our meals were most delicious.I had the sushi and hubby had the deep fried chicken. Yes they do get very busy on Friday and Saturday so to... More

One of my favorites, some of the best Sushi in Durban & some amazing Thai dishes to mix & match. The 3 Friends Salad is to die for.
