Lunch at Mango Tree

Thai food is something I have every week and so I was delighted to be invited to review Mango Tree in Belgravia, which I hadn’t visited before.

I brought one of my besties who lives in the area with me as a good excuse to catch up. As it turns out, he’d been here a few times but over time had stop coming here. So I was intrigued to find out what he thought about the food too.

B started lunch with a non-alcoholic cocktail – unfortunately, the name completely escapes me right now …

… while I had the Mango Tree Fizz which is a Champagne cocktail with amaretto and fresh mango juice.

For starter, B and I ordered the Mango Tree Seafood Platter which included fresh king prawns in spicy tom yum sauce, grilled king scallop with garlic butter sauce, soft-shell crab tempura and mixed seafood satay.

We also had the Tom Yum soup but admittedly I didn’t have too much of mine because I found it too hot. B had a lot more of his though.

For main I decided on the Gang Phed Ped Yang Pon La Mai red curry with roasted duck, grape, pineapple and cherry tomatoes, served in a pineapple bowl which I really enjoyed.

B had the Pad Thai Goong Yai with the most amazing king prawn, which I had to try.

And of course there were some vegetables.

I really didn’t have much room for dessert but I was persuaded to share a taster of Mango Tree’s key puddings and I’m so glad I gave in. I loved the crême brûlée though I was a little unsure of the sticky rice which I normally love.

Overall it was a wonderfully indulgent lunch, so much so we were the last to leave. And as the lunchtime crowd headed back to their desks and I dashed back to mine, I did wonder why B had left it so long. I’m not sure what other Thai restaurants are around Victoria but this one was perfectly fine – and as I found out, B enjoyed it too. 🙂

    As you can imagine it’s very near to where I live, I used to love it but last time I thought it had gone down hill a bit. Looks like they’ve upped their game!

      Hi Angie, my friend thought the same. He said that he enjoyed it – he definitely would tell me if he didn’t (though like me, he wasn’t sure of the sticky rice pudding). So I’m guessing it’s improved recently. If you go back, I’d love to know what you think. x

    I love Thai and am always on the lookout for a good restaurant to try – surprisingly haven’t been to Mango Tree yet, will definitely put it on my list for the next time!
