Took quite a while to order and then to get our food. Took a while also to get the bill at the end too.
Food was ok...average for Indian food. Nothing special.
I was expecting a much larger buffet than what was there. There definately wasn't as much vegetarian dishes as I would of hoped for. I think there is better Indian Buffet's in the city than this.
We dine at Mango Shiva several times throughout the year and always find the menu delectable with great service as well.
We had a nice dinner . The food was good but came a bit cool and portions were skimpy. The menu said our appetizer came with 4 pces and they sent 3. I ordered the triple dessert And after it came they told me they were out of one of the choices but when i expressed dismay said they would not charge me. Quite noisy but lovely surroundings. A good experience overall.
The portions were large and filling so I took half to go. I had left it on the table and the manager came running after me with it. VERY much appreciate it as I fully intend to savour the rest! (Coconut kaffir prawns)
Checked out the lunch buffet at Mango Shiva the other day. The restaurant was very busy (always a good sign), and we had to navigate through the crowd to get to the buffet. Options on the buffet were good. Would have liked to have seen some plain, saffron or coconut basmati rice instead of the mixed vegetable rice. All in all though, the food was good, service was good considering how busy it was, and we'll be back again.
Portion sizes seem to be decreasing over the years but prices are higher compared to other indian restaurants. Good service but pretty slow. We went on a Monday and were only 1 of a handful of tables but still had to wait quite a while for food after orderinig.
Solid buffet. Great variety. My favourite offering is the seafood curry!
Food was great as was the advice on how much to order so there would be no left-overs! Appetizer platter awesome
We chose to go to Mango Shiva before going to a play at Arts Commons. Not only is the location conveniently close to the theatre but the food is wonderful. When you need a good Indian fix this place delivers great flavor and service. Our wait staff was attentive and offered us additional value and information.
We will be back again
