Mangai is a great restaurant. It has a buffet and a lots of dessert. The restaurant offers you very good Brazilian food.It's a little expensive but the view and the decoration worth it.

Mangai can be a little confusing for first time visitors. As you walk in you get a little green card. Pick a table, order a drink and that card is replaced with a gray card.

I love buffets in Brazil as they are much higher quality than US buffets with great choices that are well done. The dining room is huge but airy and does not feel overwhelming. Great place for a quick, quality lunch.

Wonderful regional food from the Northeast region of Brazil. Large restaurant with dozens of tables and an incredible variety of dishes. Nice atmosphere and easy location, near the South Lake. Worth to frequent.

Went there with a large group of colleagues. The fact that it's a buffet and that you pay separately was convenient for us. Food was ok, nothing special and drinks took forever to come...

This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Brasília: a dazzling variety of great Northeast food, exotic fruit juices and desserts at a very affordable price. The premises are spacious and cool -- something vital in global warming-struck Brasilia. And if you're feeling sleepy after too much carne de sol (sundried beef) with beans, red rice and cassava, you... More
