Photobucket Dinner @ Mango Tree - Belgravia

Mango Tree in Belgravia - This is a restaurant I have heard so much about for their
great thai dishes and has been one I wanted to visit for a long time.

Finally, I had a reservation and would finally have a taste of what all the talks are about!





Upon arrival, the staff was extremely friendly and polite. 
We were escorted to our table and seated very comfortably in their quite big dining room. 
As we were going through their menu, we could see that their cocktails were very 
popular as the waiting staff were going back and forth with wonderfully 
presented drinks on their tray.  So we had one! It was fun and fruitilicious!! :)





We chose one made of lychee, passion fruit juice and grenadine - 
named the Director's Choice Cocktail.



The starters arrived and looked absolutely amazing. 
The Mixed Skewers (Chicken, beef and lamb) were well marinated and nicely flavoured.  
My favourite one was the delicious chicken skewer dipped in freshly made satay sauce, 
and then the lamb. The Beef was slightly tough to take off the skewer and a bit chewy 
(not recommended). Then of course, typically Thai, we had to have the
Tom Yum Goong Soup. Full of flavour, with big fresh prawns and with just
the right amount of spice I loved it!

However for the price on the menu, it was a very small portion!




One not to be missed as a starter is the Green Papaya Salad which was exquisite! 
I never would have believed  that it would be so good as I am usually 
not a big fan of green papaya...  Now definitely a favourite!





Next, the Mains :
LEFT - Grilled Duck in sweet and tangy tamarind sauce
RIGHT - Chicken in Spicy Green Curry
Served with Jasmine White Rice




Excellent combination for mains although again, I found the portions extremely small! 
Luckily Mr. A and I are not big eaters and with the starters, it was just enough for us two. 
The Duck was very nice served on some greens and the green curry was irreproachable. 
Right amount of spice (despite the big chillies used as garnish), soft and juicy pieces 
of chicken and I just love the thai aubergine in the curry sauce!





Lastly, dessert time! Cannot leave without trying out their dessert! 
A Sweet Lychee and Ginger Cheesecake served with lychee jelly. 
The cheesecake was simply wonderful. Light and springy cheesecake 
as should be with a crumbly layer of biscuit base - Oh so Yummm!!!

Overall, the experience was not disappointing. 
The atmosphere was nice although I do not recall any music playing ... 
Maybe I was just too busy chit chatting with Mr. A  - (^.^) -

The Staff were very smartly presented, polite and very attentive. 
Also what caught my attention is the impressive teamwork of the waiting staff. 
It is always nice to see this as it has become quite rare!

Definitely worth a visit but be ready to be spending quite a bit! 
A bit pricey to my liking but book through toptable  
and it'll be a bit more reasonable.
