Manga celebrates an eclectic mix of Asian and Eastern/Pacific cultures and offers diners a dynamic mash-up of contemporary-style food. The sushi menu comprises the classics, as well as eclectic sushi items such as Manga’s signature - the sushi taco, made up of tuna tartare, tuna sashimi, avocado and micro herbs.
If sushi’s not your thing, other highlights include the sesame-crusted seared tuna, line fish and mango ceviche, Asian tasters of beef potstickers and pork wontons!
Manga is a street-meets-current kind of spot where you can enjoy a fun and relaxed vibe with Asian influences in both food and décor.
Best meal I've had in Cape Town in a long time. The calamari starter was exceptionally flavorful, the salmon main was cooked to perfection in a manner which you can't compare to many restaurants in the city, and the combination of sago with the fruit and sorbet for dessert was salivating. Staff were full of personality and knew the menu well. Bravo Manga, will definitely be back soon.
Having loved Quaglinos we were somewhat stunned when we heard it had been renamed Manga and the menu given a makeover. Tonight we decided to give it a try and the first issue is the totally illegible light box sign outside.
We were served by a friendly waitress but had difficulty reading the cheaply printed paper flyer menu in the subdued light.
I still can't fathom if the idea of "fusion" has been extended to the romantic candle light fused with loud terrible music?
The new menu is not a patch on the old Quaglinos menu and prices are a bit over the top. Three tiny , really tiny chicken skewers @ R75
My kingklip on mash, lots of mash small portion of fish R150 but oo much mash.
Will we return? NO
We went this morning for breakfast there and it was very disappointing. Unfortunately they don't have Red Cappuccino which we can overlook. We ordered salmon on toast with cream cheese, capers and onion. For the fact that there were only 6 other people there waiting 20 minutes was too long. When we got the plate, there where no capers to be seen. Allegedly they were in the cottage cheese and we got some extra. The toast was no longer warm and rock hard. One could with great difficulty cut it with a knife. The staff however, as very friendly. We will definitely not go there again for breakfast.
