“Loved it 100%”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I liked everything about the Purple Mango. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The portions where very big and delicious. We had a range of food from the mixed starter (10 of 10) to Green Curry (10 of 10) to the Chicken Tikka (10 of 10). The Naan was also spectacular. If we ever make it back to Shanklin we'll be sure to stop by the Purple Mango. We just won't bring my wife who doesn't like Indian food! She's strange that one. ;)

“Fairly good but not great - decline in quality”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Since it opened we have been to the Purple Mango regularly.
This year we have been twice. On the first visit we thought that the quality of the food, in particular the chicken, had declined. We thought this might be a one-off, so we went again. Exactly the same poor quality meat.
Will be looking elsewhere now.

“Food poisoning”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

To start with one positive, the onion bhaji's were really tasty.

We were served by about 4 or 5 different people. Some were polite and helpful, others were just rude!

We ordered 2 chicken dishes for the mains. I tasted the chicken and thought that it seemed under-cooked or something so stuck to the sauce and rice. I am pregnant and have been off chicken a bit so thought I was just being fussy. My partner continued to tuck in.

The next day he was really ill. We were hotel bound for the next day as he was scared to go too far away from the loo!

“Yummy beautiful plate of food”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Decide to come here for the range of food choice. I had a lamb Captain Pathil and boy it was yummy. My partner had a korma and her words were: "best korma I've ever had" and she has had a lot of kormas.
Great service and brilliant food.
