Review on Sticky Mango
The RSJ on the South Bank has morphed into a South East Asian restaurant called Sticky Mango, named after their signature dessert. Set over two floors, a 6 minute walk from Waterloo Station, acclaimed chef Peter Lloyd has partnered with restaurateur Nigel Wilkinson. A sultry lit space with dark wood furnishings and leather chairs, and decorated with suitable Asian artefacts.
Peter has worked alongside renowned chefs such as Gordon Ramsey, Marco Pierre White, Pierre Koffmann, Phil Howard and Charlie Trotter, before joining the Sanderson hotel where his passion for Asian cuisine began. He was also Head Chef for five years at the highly regarded Spice Market before the opportunity arose for him to open his own restaurant.
The kitchen looks to a modern take on South East Asian street food, with a menu that can be designed for sharing, alongside tasting menus and Express Bento Boxes which are available from lunchtime to early evening. Typical offerings on the carte include a small plate of Malaysian chicken curry puffs, fried curry leaves and coriander yoghurt or from the big plate section there's whole lemon sole, sambla, cucumber and daikon salad. Desserts stay close to home with kulfi three ways, saffron and pistachio, mango and spiced chocolate or grilled pineapple satay, passion fruit chilli emulsion and spiced peanuts.
The wine list has been expertly chosen to match the spicy food by Nigel Wilkinson who runs his own wine company.
