Trusted reviews:

The New York Times says “a meal at Veni Mangé is the wisest bet. It is one of the nation’s best restaurants…there is callaloo to start, the classic, bright-green Trinidadian soup of puréed dasheen leaf and coconut milk, enlivened with blue crab, thickened with okra; and a plate of sweet accra, or fritters of crab and shrimp. Follow these with a dark and fiery pork stew and moist hunks of grilled mahi mahi served with a tamarind glaze and plenty of fried plantains.” (October 2007)

Trinidad & Tobago’s Newsday says Veni Mange’s “classic West Indian dishes are prepared with authentic Caribbean herbs and spices, complimented by exciting sauces.” (August 2010)

Conde Nast’s Concierge says Veni Mange offers “lunches and dinners comprising whatever is fresh and good at the market each morning—crab, kingfish, snapper, callaloo, pork, always something with chicken, and fresh tropical juices.”
