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. 🙂
