It was a total disappointment for a fine dining Thai restaurant!
We went to Mango Tree Thai restaurant for my birthday dinner, we always wanted to try this place as it looks good from the outside when we walk or drive pass the restaurant. When we first arrived we were told by the receptionist to wait at the bar even though the majority of the table were empty!
Unfortunately I must say that we were both utterly disappointed with the meal that we received as we both love Thai food very much, we feel a bit sorry to say this but it's our genuine thoughts after having meal in Mango tree, it is the worst Thai meal we have ever had in London! Comparing to other Thai fine dining restaurants like Blue Elephant and Patara, we expected the food to be presented with interesting garnishing and good tasty food, but Mango Tree is over charging on price for the food quality that they provide! We have been to some non-fine dining Thai restaurant in London and we had much better meals compare to what we had in Mango Tree.
We ordered grill Thai chicken marinated with coconut and some other beautiful ingredients, it turn out to be like a chicken dessert if you can imagine the taste! Everything was too sweet on the plate, the chicken were sweet as well as the source and I couldn't finish the dish, we special requested for "green leaf only" stir-fry vegetables as we don't like mixed vegetables, but it still came to us as mixed vegetables that taste like they have put too much sugar in it. We do love Thai dessert but we don't appreciate our main course to taste as sweet as dessert!
At the end of the meal we were literally have the same thought which is we will never ever come back to this restaurant again!
The only good point that we would like to make is the staffs are quite attentive, although the waiter could not delivered our order according to our request.
*The above comments are based on the experience of our first visit in this restaurant. Overall it was a total disappointment!

I ate at this restaurant with my Husband. We always wanted to try this place, so I was very excited to have booked a table although we could only get a booking for 21.30.
When we entered the restaurant it was extremely busy, we were seated after a short while. Our food took a very long time to arrive. We had the Mango Tree platter for 2 as starters.. The satay chicken was badly cooked, the rest of the starters was edible, but not terrific. When the main dishes finally arrived I WAS EXTREMELY disappointed.... OMG, the food tasted awful!! Absolutely AWFUL. One of the dishes was served in an empty fresh pineapple skin... I say again YUCK! Disgusting all of it!
Fresh Mint tea tasted like dish water! I asked waiter to take it back twice!
The atmosphere was good, service was slow.....
Value for money, no way!! Never ever again!!!!
