Description: Opening in 2007, Mango is the original Thai Tapas Bar – setting a trend across the nation! It's a favourite among locals for its intimate charm and vibrant atmosphere. Offering an informal and fun dining experience, guests are encouraged to enjoy the menu as they would in Thailand – lots of dishes to share and taste together. Everything on the menu is made in-house and is freshly prepared by the expert team of Thai chefs. Much of the menu is cooked to order, so veggies, vegans, and gluten-free diets are well accommodated for. On two floors of a characterful Victorian building, you’ll find the spirit of northern Thailand’s capital Chiang Mai at this Mango: Bohemium and quirky, offering a relaxed and intimate dining experience with candle-lit themed rooms, exotic Asian furnishings, and vast glossy murals.

Fantastic flavours really well cooked, staff are attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The tapas is excellent, try the crispy beef red curry, it’s the best ever.

Came in on 27th December and had a lovely golden tofu curry & boyfriend had a chilli stir fry. We really enjoyed our evening here, stayed much longer than we usually would at restaurant as it was so relaxed. Food excellent! One young guy serving everyone who was very kind and quick - asking if I was vegan when ordering tofu. Reasonably priced. Will be back!

A lunchtime visit which was enjoyable with quick service and rather different food.
I felt it was a little pricey and £5 for 125cl of red wine was too much.
Perhaps this is typical "in town" pricing?

Had our work Christmas party in the room upstairs which we had to ourselves all night with a great atmosphere. Our host Daniel looked after our group well and helped group our drink orders to make payment easier (and we were all a bit too merry to keep track!).
The food was great and plentiful. In fact we couldn’t finish it all and perhaps they could cut back on some items.
My friends and I are still singing their praises; thanks for a great night!

Warm welcome. Table sorted despite booked level of business on a ‘music night’.
Food all arrived in a timely manner. All food well presented , very tasty - good quality & hot.
Drink service spot on & reasonably priced ....
Atmosphere excellent by comparison to other Thai’s.
Parking not straightforward.
Booking seems to be preferable.
Overall - reasonable value but could be expensive if too many dishes ordered through simple temptation !
Re-visit ? ..... Yes.
