After years of avoiding Mango Tree like the plague, I finally succumbed and went there for dinner and I stand corrected! Mango Tree turned out to be surprisingly good! The room is huge and despite our 6pm arrival, it was more than 75% occupied within 20 minutes! The banquette seating is, quite possibly, the most comfortable seats I have ever sat in at any restaurant!
The menu is quite daunting with page after page of Thai dishes, which if you do not know your way around Thai cuisine can be difficult to choose from. I, however, had no problem whizzing through the pages ordering a selection of yummy dishes. The 50% discount is also incredibly helpful, although it does get frustrating when the menu seems to have so many dishes that are exempt from the discount; in fact it is down right cheeky really. But there is still plenty to choose from and we decided to order lots of appetizer dishes to maximise the chance to taste more. Glass noodles with prawns and minced chicken were delicious with a zesty and spicy dressing, Thai beef salad was seared to perfection and fiery to boot. Assorted skewers of satay, grilled pork and classic papaya salad were also fantastic.
I didnt order dessert but my friend ordered a couple of rum and cokes and commented that they were nice and strong, which is rare these days, so at least you get what you pay for! Within an hour, the restaurant is heaving and the noise level escalates to an all time high, not helped by a trio of shrill chavs who clearly had one glass of vino too many and would laugh like hyenas causing the whole restaurant to stare furiously at them as they carried on oblivious to the disturbance they caused. But apart from that, I am pretty impressed and will definitely be going back.
