I visited the restaurant on Friday night 5/23/08, there was a minimum wait for a table. I find the restaurant to be small, but cozy. I love the atmosphere, the service was great. The owner was nice and friendly, he greeted the customers with professionalism and respect. The food was tasty, seasoned well, and spicy. (I love spicy food) and the drink I had was WOW!!! Need I say more; Friday was my 3rd visit, each time ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Mango Caribbean CafeAdd to mybook
Went on a Friday night wanting good sangria, beans, plantains. What we got was ok service, watered down sangria and bad food! I ordered the Grand Caymen Special (mango chicken) which was tasteless, the rice and bean side dish was mushy but rice was undercooked. How does that happen? The presentation of the food was terrible. It basically looked like someone had just slapped it on our plate. Not appetizing at a... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I visited this restaurant in search of good Jamaican cooking and what I found was complete disappoint-\r
ment. I ordered curry goat and it was horrible. The meat was red. Goat meat looks and taste like\r
beef. This was not. I sampled the jerked chicken and almost lost my lunch. The spicy shrimp was not\r
what I had in mind. Growing up in Jamaica, we bought small boxes of tiny dry fried shrimp cooked in\r

We keep going back, it's so good. I love the breaded salmon and my husband keeps ordering the curry chicken. Fun place for drinks and hors d'oeurves, plus their breaded pudding dessert is the best I've ever tasted. It's cozy, friendly, romantic, very friendly owners and staff. If you want to be sure to get in on a weekend, make a reservation, or take your chances and stop by. They always try to accommodate.

We went on a Sunday night and luckily got there a bit early as it became busy after we arrived. The boss sat the two of us in a little alcove off to the left which had three tables and three candles lighting each table. My wife found it a bit dark and hard to read the menu, but some would consider it romantic. I thought it would be a nice private area for a group as large as 12-14.\r

I visited mango with a group of people last friday night. the atmosphere was relaxing and fun with good reggae music playing in the background. I brought my lady back on sunday to get her opinion. in compliance she agreed that this sopt was authentic as her parents come from jamaica.\r
I would recommend the spicy pepper shrimp/plantain appetizer if you like spicy food. The Jamaican Patty (Beef) was perfect, fla... view more
Last we went to the Mango Cafe for dinner. It was our second time in the last 2-3 weeks.
The food is really good - especially the appetizers ... Tey the combo platter which includes both the joints. It's a bit spicy but real nice.
Don't order wine though ... They don't serve good wine ... In any case it's not one of
those joints where you'd order wine.
The staff is friendly and nice ... Seems to be a family run p... view more
After reading some online reviews of Mango Cafe, I was excited to go there for dinner, expecting a good spicy meal.
We had joints, curried and jerked. The curried had faint flavor and the meat was dry. The jerked were more flavorful, but was also dry, and not spicy.
We had chicken roti and jerked chicken. Neither dish was particularly flavorful or spicy.
I was quite appalled at the service. When the s... view more
Yep.. this is the real thing! If you are from the islands, you will feel right at home when eating Mango's Jamacian patties, jerked chicken, or their ginger beer! That's right ginger beer.
My wife and I have been looking all over the bay area for food from the islands and this is it!
For those who are not from the islands... have no fear--you will love the food there. It is spicy and hot, just the way the bay... view more
