Critic's review

Food
This is one of Durban’s more authentic Thai restaurants – angry curries are angry – without all the extra sugar and coconut milk to tone things down for Western tastes. Chef Roger Sirvanjanakul augments the dishes of his native Thailand with a good sushi selection. Choose a platter for starters and then relish an exceptional red duck curry. The pad Thai options are better than most.

Wine
A fairly basic list, but one that does take into account spicier foods.

Service
Generally sound, but can be a little hit and miss – or lost in translation.

Ambience
Functional and comfy, this old passage has been given some class.

And...
Baked ice cream is a perennial hit. (FC, October 2012)

User reviews

  • From start to finish, the food was what I would rate zero. Starters prawn Springrolls , over fried almost burnt. Served with bland chili sauce. Mains Rice chicken noodles. Tasteless, we counted 5 tiny strips of Chicken . Chili and basil prawns. Tons of onions, green beans. Uncooked frozen.prawns. When we approached the manager/Owner, his response was, " I don't know what I need to apologize for". Seriously, we merely brought it to your attention is so you don't treat all of your customers the way you treated us. As a world traveler, I have eaten Thai food around the world and as a chef myself, your restaurant served the worse in my experience. Suggestion, treat your customers equally, look past their color of skin. Don't serve with assumptions but serve with passion. Best chef is a chef with passion for food and service.

  • Went for dinner tonight at Green Mango. Heard a lot of hype about the place. Rated as one of Durban top 5 restaurants.Disappointing to say the least. Let me start.... sushi platter for two in a tiny square side platter, one marble size wasabi, 6 small slices of Ginger, remember it's for 2 people! The presentation was appalling. Sushi cut into teeny weeny bite size, no finesse in its presentation. No decor. Rice was hardly sticking to the roll, quite lacking, to say the least. Halfway through, we ran out of wasabi and ginger. Ordered more ginger, was charged R8.00 for a few little slithers. Only good thing was the tuna and salmon was tasty and fresh. Not going back

  • Very chilled place to spend an evening or lazy afternoon. Roger is probably the best sushi chef in Durban. Relaxed atmosphere with an extensive menu to suite all tastes. In my personal top 10 in Durban.

  • A lovely small and vibey eatery with the best sushi to be had in Durban. The staff are welcoming and friendly, service is good. Diners are spoilt for choice with a menu offering not only a wide selection of sushi (made fresh to order!), but a variety of other Eastern dishes from Japan and Thailand. Vegetarians are well catered for and daily specials add further interest. The wine list is somewhat lacking in choice for off-dry to semi-sweet white wines to temper the bite of the chillies in the more spicy dishes, but does have several superb dry whites to compliment the sushi. Red wine affeciandos will not be dissapointed, with some seriously reputable Estates featuring.
