Mango Tree and the amazing fountains!
Over recent months I had been invited to a few food related events that have been hosted at Mango Tree at Souk Al Bahar, but they have always been evening events. Evenings and photography don’t work for me and I like to use my own images so I was over the moon to recently receive a lunch time invitation to dine at Mango Tree. Yesterday was also our first time for dining al fresco since the temperatures dropped.
The restaurant is located on the 1st floor of Souk Al Bahar, overlooking the fountains, absolutely beautiful setting. I am yet to visit a Thai restaurant that has a menu that isn’t huge, Mango Tree is no exception, literally spoiled for choice. For my starter I chose the Phla Goong; poached prawn salad with lemongrass, red onion, spring onion with a lime a chili dressing. The presentation and taste of this dish was just amazing. My other half ordered his favourite dish of char-grilled chicken satay served with peanut dipping sauce. Delicious dish, the chicken was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented on its own individual little BBQ grill.
For my main course I chose the Ped Tod Sam Rod; roasted duck breast served with sweet chili sauce, beautiful dish though it could have done with a touch of salad on the side. My other half opted for the Massamam Gai Prodsarn; corn-fed chicken breast braised in massamam curry sauce with potato, onion and peanuts. I tasted this dish and have to say it was outstandingly tasty. Our dining experience was somewhat spoiled though with slow service, maybe it was just an ‘off’ day as I can honestly say I have never seen a bad review about Mango Tree. The food was spot on and that is what we were there for, good food, a fabulous view and a very relaxing lunch.
