I'd heard many things about Mango Room and as I was in the Camden area decided to go for dinner with my boyfriend.
I was impressed with the decor and equally impressed with the choice of dishes on the menu.
I chose the Curry Goat and Basmati Rice and my partner chose the Grilled Chicken and Rice and Peas. We ordered a side dish of plaintain.
I was very impressed with the taste of the curry as Curry Goat can be very 'bony' but this was both succulent and plentiful.
My partner's chicken was well seasoned and the Rice and Peas tasted authentic.
The presentation was good and I liked the way in which they served the plaintain.
I rounded off the meal with a delightful Apple and Pear Strudel with Coconut Ice Cream.
I have grown up with these dishes and knew that I would be unconsciously comparing the food with my mothers.
Well, I must say the Mango Room passed the test.
The bill was reasonable but I wasn't impressed with the 12.5% service charge.
Overall the food was tasty and I am planning on taking my mother to sample some good West Indian cooking!
I would recommend this.
