Mana means food of the gods, and once you eat here, you wont disagree. A small hole in the wall, that will have a line trailing out the front door, Mana is a definite must visit. Whether you are a busy shopper or busy with work, this meal will have you rejuvenated and ready to go for the rest of your day.
The food at Mana is all fresh, natural, locally grown and simple. One can order salads, rolls, burgers and variety of fresh juices and even coconut water! The whole restaurant has a very earthy vibe to it and they obviously donâ€™t served bottled water. (Water can be had from steel glasses filled at a running tap.)

The restaurant is fashioned like any fast food joint, where you queue up to order your food and pick it up after you have paid. What makes this â€˜fast slow foodâ€™ joint special is the seating they offer. After you have placed your order, and picked up your steel glass of water, you head to the back of the restaurant where there are beautiful wooden communal tables with plants and fairy lights. You can almost expect one of Enid Blytonâ€™s brownies or pixies to jump out at you.
At Mana I ordered a half flat, a quinoa salad and coconut water. The flat (kind of like a roll) was nice and wholesome, the garlicnaise (garlic-mayonnaise) and babgannouj are add ons that you shouldnâ€™t miss out on. The salad leaves were fresh and crunchy, and the cold coconut water was nice and refreshing. This place has the perfect mana for gods on a hot summer day in central.
