Mango Tree London – Thai Restaurant Review


We’d already had an exciting day in London with a wonderfully English afternoon tea followed by a stroll along the Southbank with some blogging friends.  Our day was not yet over, and we headed back to our apartment in Fulham Broadway to get ready for our dinner reservation at the Mango Tree London.

Time wasn’t on our side so we booked an Uber to ensure we arrived at the restaurant on time.  The two of us enjoyed being driven through the city’s streets at night, chatting about the days’ events with one eye on the stunning houses passing us by in South West London.

We arrived at the Mango Tree restaurant with not a minute to spare, and headed straight inside.  We skipped the invitation to take a seat at the bar and opted for being shown straight to our table.  We sat down, and I felt a pang of regret given the wonderful cocktails that were on the Mango Tree menu to tempt us.

The moment passed and we were soon soaking up the funky atmosphere inside the restaurant.  The tables were full and the room was filled with dance like beats creating a fantastic buzz across the restaurant.  Waiters were busy delivering food to the tables and all the guests seemed in high spirits.  We were drawn in immediately and excitedly to started choosing our meal for the evening.

It was a great place for Kaz and I to catch up for the evening away from the blogging crowds of Britmums.  We enjoyed chatting over a glass of wine and deliberated over our menu choices.  I always like to know what my dining partner is going to eat, as I hate being hit by food envy when the meals arrives.

Thai fishcakes and sweet chilli sauce

I don’t think that could possibly happen at the Mango Tree Belgravia as everything that was coming from the kitchen looked so delicious.  My Tod Mun Pla, or spicy Thai fishcakes, were delicious and got me very excited about what was coming next.  The flavour was perfect with just the right amount of spice for my palette and to make the most of the sweet chilli sauce on the side.   I felt like one very satisfied customer already, and we had only just started. 

When I saw the Pad Thai Goong Yai on the menu, I simply I knew had to have it.  I love pad Thai and when there’s king prawns involved as well I’m a really happy bunny.  When the main course arrived at the table I literally couldn’t believe my eyes.  The dish was beautiful in every way and it took the term king prawn to a whole new level if you see what I mean!


The noodles were covered in a delicate egg basket and there was a serving of crushed peanuts and dried chillies on the side.  What looked like half the plate was covered in the largest prawn I’d ever seen which had been sliced in two and cooked to perfection on the griddle.  It was verging on some kind of steak prawn and it was super tasty alongside the Mango Tree homemade sauce.

The main course definitely left an impression on us, and we were excited to see what the Mango Tree had in store for dessert.  Neither of us could resist the Chocolate Sphere with Salted Caramel sauce, especially with talk of ice cream featuring somewhere in the deal.

The waiter bought the sphere’s to the table, which looked exquisite on a bed of white chocolate shavings and pomegranate seeds.  Then he poured the warm salted caramel sauce over the milk chocolate sphere and the ball began to melt revealing a selection of fresh fruits and a vanilla and pandan   ice cream.  Once the process was complete all that was left for us to do was tuck in.

It was literally a chocolate lovers dream, with the perfect combination of white and milk chocolate with bursts of fruit flavours running through it.  It wasn’t over bearing in anyway, which could easily happen with this amount of chocolate.  Instead it was the perfect end to the perfect meal and a wonderful evening at the Mango Tree.

I think it’s safe to say that we very much enjoyed both the food and the lively yet ambient atmosphere in the Mango Tree London and would happily eat there again one day.  If you’re heading to London and looking for a tried and tested place to eat, I don’t think you can go far wrong with this Thai restaurant.
