“Awesome food and service”
Reviewed 30 January 2011

This is a long overdue review as I've been going to Mango Caribbean Restaurant for some time and have always enjoyed my meals there. The owner is warm, friendly and inviting. The owner Vincent makes you feel like you're a guest in his home. The service is 4 star. I have never have to wave anyone over to take my order or refill my water. The reggae music in the background always make me feel like I'm on vacation on some Island, thus I instantly relax. The food, my goodness...... I wish the Mango Caribbean restaurant was closer to my home and work. I've taken my co-workers and friends here and they all love it. There is a wonderful selection to choose from. The Trinidad and Tobago is my absolute favorite, along with the perfect side of plantains. I wish they had multiple locations, but then it might lose its uniqueness.

I liked the Caribbean atmosphere of the restaurant as well as the imaginative names of the dishes -- I ordered the "Yeahman Quesadillas" which were quite tasty. I also ordered a ginger beer which had quite a kick and, for dessert, we had ice cream with fried bananas. Overall, my visit was favorable, so I'd like to try this restaurant again.
