Review on Mango Tree
A swish Belgravia address and an upper-crust location behind Buckingham Palace are suitably flash trappings for this glittering, stylish appointed Thai restaurant.Ignore the fact that its entrance is on the ground floor of an office block and allow yourself to be whisked away into heady world of sophisticated Thai cuisine.
No expense has been spared on the décor which is a dramatic fusion of East and West, and the food matches the interior in terms of intricacy and exquisite presentation. The full menu has its share of well-known names – satays, tom yum gai soup, pad thai noodles and so on – but there is much to enjoy if you're prepared to delve.
Look for meung cum (betel nut leaves served with peanut, lime, chilli, toasted coconut and dried shrimps), pickled cuttlefish, moo nam pueng (slow-roast belly of pork served with Chinese kale, orange and chilli glaze) or gai yang (grilled whole poussin with mooli cake and nam jim). If you are in the mood for something sweet, finish with steamed sticky rice and banana coconut cake or pumpkin pudding.
Like the menu, the wine list is aimed at those with deep pockets and platinum plastic. Owners the Coca Group are also behind Awana, a chic new Malaysian restaurant in Sloane Square.
