SquareMeal Review of Mango Tree

Mango Tree's extravagant entrance gives way to a small bar where spiky-haired Thai bartenders are ready to indulge their clientele with devilishly potent cocktails. Meanwhile, hungry guests descend into the enormous dining space, with its plush leather banquettes, showy floral arrangements and beautiful bamboo blinds. The kitchen serves up Thai classics, but with some added panache when it comes to flavour and presentation: a green curry of corn-fed chicken, aubergine and sweet basil arrives in a freshly cut pineapple, while pad thai is gussied up with spiky spring onions, red chillis and a mound of crushed peanuts. Otherwise, order from the chef's special menu, which takes a whistle-stop tour of Thailand. Mango Tree also delivers top-class service: sleek staff armed with walkie-talkies stay unshakably polite despite the high-decibel atmosphere.

The venue is brilliant, plush bar area, food was excellent as it was presented well and tasted amazing, also filling so good value for money. Cocktails are very creative and exotic although pricey but the standards are high so it's worth it. Will definately return!

Went to Mango Tree as a group of 9 and weren't disappointed! Service is always on the high in this place as is the quality of food. We went for the business lunch menu this time and had a selection of starters including chicken satay, prawn spring rolls and soups – all yummi. Our mains selection included red and green curries and stir-fried beef in oyster sauce. Red beef curry was very flavoursome and meat falling apart, green chicken curry was good also and was spicier than the red – my spice tolerance is low-medium and i would say I'd struggle to finish the whole dish. The stir fried beef in oyster sauce was a bit chewy but was tasty nontheless. Very good experience and will definitely be back to try more of their dishes!

Sadly we were disappointed. We were seated then left for 20minutes without asking if we wanted drinks. It was hot and were really thirsty! Tables were so close together it was like being on the tube! Food was great but there was no service which was added at 12.5% and we would have had to make a fuss at end to get this removed. We just wanted to get out of this very cramped and loud restaurant. When charging £15-30 a main course these are things that are unacceptable.

We went to Mango Tree Thai restaurant for my birthday dinner, we always wanted to try this place as it looks good from the outside when we walk or drive pass the restaurant. When we first arrived we were told by the receptionist to wait at the bar even though the majority of the table were empty! Unfortunately I must say that we were both utterly disappointed with the meal that we received as we both love Thai food very much, we feel a bit sorry to say this but it's our genuine thoughts after having meal in Mango tree, it is the worst Thai meal we have ever had in London! Comparing to other Thai fine dining restaurants like Blue Elephant and Patara, we expected the food to be presented with interesting garnishing and good tasty food, but Mango Tree is over charging on price for the food quality that they provide! We have been to some non-fine dining Thai restaurant in London and we had much better meals compare to what we had in Mango Tree. We ordered grill Thai chicken marinated with coconut and some other beautiful ingredients, it turn out to be like a chicken dessert if you can imagine the taste! Everything was too sweet on the plate, the chicken were sweet as well as the source and I couldn't finish the dish, we special requested for “green leaf only” stir-fry vegetables as we don't like mixed vegetables, but it still came to us as mixed vegetables that taste like they have put too much sugar in it. We do love Thai dessert but we don't appreciate our main course to taste as sweet as dessert! At the end of the meal we were literally have the same thought which is we will never ever come back to this restaurant again! The only good point that we would like to make is the staffs are quite attentive, although the waiter could not delivered our order according to our request. *The above comments are based on the experience of our first visit in this restaurant. Overall it was a total disappointment!

Six of us had a family dinner last night and we were very happy with the level of service and the food was delicious. Two of us had the duck salad with a chilli and honey sauce and this was absolutely delicious. We had a very sweet waitress who regularly topped up our water and wine glasses. We were not rushed too. Very noisy though!

We visited here with another couple on Friday night after an absence of nearly ten years. We all used to work around the corner, so were keen for a little nostalgic trip in sharing some sensational Thai. Two big changes have emerged in the last decade. Firstly, it was rammed to the rafters. Ten years ago, Mango Tree was still building its name and it was always empty, so it was a good thing to see the place so buzzy, but the service and food are not what they were. You might argue it was because they were so busy but in reality, the food was just plonked on the table, we had to refill our own wine glasses and the food had lost its mouth watering lusciousness. It was always expensive, so no change there, but value perceptions are challenged when the food and service are so average. All in all, an expensive night for not very much to remember.

I booked through Square Meal and expected 50% discount off food, as the promo stated. However there was a long list of menu items which were not included: all the side dishes, this includes the over-priced rice, and all the chef specials (25% off instead). I ordered a starter and 2 mains and rice. I had 2 beers. The bill came to £33.73 with the discount and added dreaded ‘discretionary’ service charge of 12.5%. The food was good but certainly not worth the full price. Without the discount you are looking at over £50/head. I came away feeling ripped-off, despite the discount. Service was slow, the place was full. If your are looking for decent Thai food ,there are plenty of other places to go to. I would not return to Mango Tree, it is over-hyped and over-priced.

I took my wife here for our wedding anniversary. We both like Thai food and have been to some of London's best Thai restaurants. We had high expectations because the reviews for Mango Tree were pretty much universally good, so perhaps it's not entirely surprising we were a bit disappointed by the experience. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and shown to the bar for a drink while our table was prepared. First sign that all was not up to standard: the table we were shown to was dirty, and yet we were shown to it anyway and then had to watch the waiter wipe what was on the table onto us. Not four star service. Service was pretty slow throughout – for the money, I'd expect everything to be brisk and efficient but we sat for quite a while before they took our drinks order and then we had to wait a meaningful amount of time for the drinks to show up. After a short wait, we were shown to our table. The tables are pretty close together and it's a fairly buzzy place, so don't go if you're looking for a romantic night out, I guess. The menu includes a ‘tasting’ option but it's only available for parties of four or more — so why give it to a table for two? The food choices are extensive – both the sort of Thai food you'd expect (e.g. green curry, pad thai) plus some more ‘fancy’ options designed by their chef (eg Wagyu beef with a green curry sauce). We over-ordered slightly, somewhat deliberately so that we would have a chance to try a range of dishes. Some were pretty good, others were really quite disappointing. For appetizers we ordered the tasting plate, which included the usual suspects: chicken & beef sate, spring rolls and the like. It was nice but not off-the-scale nice – for more than £10 per head I'd expect better, really. For main courses we had the chef's special pad thai, which was served with tiger prawns; a green chicken curry and a beef jungle curry plus steamed vegetables and jasmine rice. The jungle curry was a huge disappointment: it was advertised as ‘very hot’ and the waiter even warned me about it being hot, but honestly it was extremely bland and the sauce was more like a not-very-spicy hot-and-sour soup than a jungle curry. Definitely one to avoid. The green curry was tasty – the sauce pleasantly rich – though I think there's a general tendency for western chefs to put far too much meat in Thai curries and insufficient vegetable matter – there were maybe half a dozen baby aubergines, for example. The steam vegetables were nicely cooked. The pad thai was really the best dish and even that wasn't “amazing” it was just “good”. Over-priced, don't bother.

A truly excellent evening with a wonderful friend. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and low lighting with a great Thai atmosphere. We had a cocktail before dinner and were shown promptly to our table at 6pm. We had a very attentive waitress and wine server too. We opted for the five course £28 menu and food was amazing! We were so busy talking we didnt realise the restaruant had filled up so quickly, every table was taken. We enjoyed a very lovely bottle of rose wine. This venue was 10/10 and I cannot recommend it more highly. Everything was excellent! Service, good atmosphere, you are missing out if you haven't been here! One of London's best kept Thai gems!

whilst the food was fairly decent, the service was shocking. we were not told at the time of booking that there was a 2 hrs slot only, we were then taken to the table late. The waitress put her food in the meal whilst serving, another waiter dropped food on one of us whilst clearing the table. the 50% off voucher we had all of a sudden wasn't valid. all in all not a pleasant dining experience
