Datebook Diner: 4 Star Rating on 06.30.11

"Don't you love it when you enter a restaurant and immediately know that you've made the right choice? That's exactly the confidence and warmth that Flying Mango exuded on two recent visits. We were greeted by no fewer than three people - a cook working the open kitchen, a server rushing food out to the patio and another server making her way through the busy room. I knew I was in great hands." Read the full review here.

Best Kept Secret on the Local Restaurant Scene Runner-up

2012:

Best Kept Secret on the Local Restaurant Scene WINNER

Even with the will power of a priest, no one can resist the temptation of the faintest wiff of what's cooking in this kitchen. Taking the crown again this year, the Flying Mango's Caribbean-style food turns newcomers into regulars and regulars into loyal followers. Flying Mango doesn't need a lot of hype. The food speaks for itself. That's why our readers say the restaurant continues to proudly remain one of the metro's secret diamonds in the rough.

2011:

Best Kept Secret on the Local Restaurant Scene WINNER

The Flying Mango has a reputation for creating uncommon and unparalleled cuisine with a dash of irresistible flair. Bold Caribbean flavors draw the chic with the casual, the formal with the farmer. Our readers apparently agree with the Flying Mango mantra that it is a place to go “for all reasons or no reason at all.”

Best Kept Secret on the Local Restaurant Scene WINNER

"Beaverdale maintains its stranglehold on this award, sweeping the top two places for the second year in row. Flying Mango is the town's most elaborate display of the barbecue arts, proving you can have it both ways — good smokehouse meats as well as full table service and neighborhood coziness. 4345 Hickman Rd., Des Moines, 255-4111."
