Ok so not the nicest view or the best neighbourhood but the food is amazing! The Crispy duck is amazing, and I literally crave it every few months! Worth every cent!

My wife & I headed out to Green Mango for her birthday celebration.

The food was excellent and service fun & attentive.

The Sushi selections are extensive. The portions selected were freshly made & excellent.

Prices are medium , value good.

Parking onsite is always limited but plenty parking in the street. Car guards seem to be on the ball !

We always get the sushi at Green Mango because they excel at it. The flavours are simple and uncomplicated, but very good. Their sashimi is always of great quality.

This time around I tried the tempura as well. The prawn tempura was very good, but I was disappointed with the vegetable version - just a single zucchini cut into four strips was not what I was expecting - some variety would have been appreciated.

Took the family to The Green Mango for a birthday dinner but were disappointed. The service was very good, friendly, efficient, and the location is not great but its fine, we were not there for the view.

The salmon nigiri was very fresh and the fried spinach was a nice surprise, something really different, but the seafood salad had sliced cucumbers in it that were so old they were curled at the edges and soft which didn't give me any confidence to eat the seafood part of it.

The tempura and prawn toast tasted of old oil and the curries were average for Durban, overall we were hoping for more.

Lovely food with good clean flavours. Excellent value for money. Never had a bad meal yet. Service friendly but pretty basic.
Sushi has always been good. It is in the parking lot but otherthan that I've always had a great meal there.
