“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

We decided to give this Indian a try in shanklin as all the others were pretty low on trip advisor scores.

We were glad we choose purple mango. We ordered a takeaway and the food was hot, tasty and very good quality.


If you want a decent curry then it's a good choice.

“Friendly staff and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Fantastic setting with a waterfall window.
The food was excellent and reasonably priced.
The restaurant was not that suitable for couples but would suit a larger mixed group.

“Nice meal and friendly service at Purple Mango”

Called in to Purple Mango without booking in advance on a Saturday night. Lovely meal with the best tandoori lamb chops I've ever tasted. Just the perfect balance of chilli and spices

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

Had a takeaway meal for three people which was very good . My husband and son had chicken tika balti and I chose vegetarian bhuna. We also had garlic bread, pilaua rice and popadoms which were very tasty. Overall our experience was as follows. Good tasty food, but small quantity for the price we paid. Staff very friendly but music dreadful. We would like to experience the food again as it is very good but would like more quantity please as each container was less than half full.
