I have eaten in an taken out at Veni Mange. If you are looking for a great, local experience, this is it. The building is typical original Woodbrook architecture. Windows look out on to Ariapita Avenue, owner, Roses is very hands on and attentive to all customers.
Art - local and regional cover the walls and you can tell that this Restaurant is coming from a place of love of life, family, friends and Good, sumptuous, wholesome flavours. My favorites? Soups with bake, curry with buss up shot Roti, pig tail oil down with breadfruit in coconut milk and pelau.

NB this is informal dining and also has an extensive bar offering..

Come here if you don't eat anywhere else--well, other than Dopson's Roti shop which is really a carry-out place. This cute place has very very good food. Fresh grilled fish, oxtail, pork, beef, chicken...and the spices and sauces. Soooo good. We also had mussels and soup and fish balls which were amazing. I'd go back here in a heartbeat.

This is a long favored local restaurant serving delicious food long before many others came around and it still maintains its reputation. Delicious Trinidad food at its best.

i was here with business partner for a dinner. THe place is clean and typical. I think too much typical. In a certain sense You immediately relize that the restaurant if for tourists. ANyway the girl serving us was really nice and quick. THe owner was a beautiful lady coming and checking wha was ok and what not. At the end the food including the shark was good but honestly we were expeting to pay something less considerin everything.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Yes, a lot of our patrons are tourists as they want to try out local food but fortunately we also have a solid loyal base of local customers as well. The 'very local' look and feel to the place was my sister's and my dream as we both lived away for many years and just wanted to have a place that spoke of being in the Caribbean. Hopefully there was not an error on your bill as expensive is not something normally attributed to us.....but I am happy that in the end you did enjoy the food and service.
And....I do hope you will come back to dine with us if you return to Trinidad & Tobago.
