We were invited to our first ever Zomato Meet up hosted by the Zomato team. It was held at Mango Tree. Mango Tree offers authentic Thai Cuisine. Exotic, traditional and bursting with flavour, the atmosphere includes both the exclusivity required for business meetings and the intimacy desired for a romantic dinner.
Where: Mango Tree, Souk Al Bahar
Service: Extremely sweet and caring. Our server kept coming by to the each of us to check if we needed anything, even though it was almost the 10 of us, she came by to each and every one of us.
What we loved: We got to try each and every dish on the Brunch Menu. The Gai Phad Phet Haeng (deep fried chicken wings) were excellent, they were soo juicy and tasty that the some of us actually ordered it again, it was that good! It’s definitely worth the try even though it’s deep fried. The Litchi mojito was fresh and ice cold, something we really needed in this heat. The chocolate brownie with toffee sauce was pretty good, and our only favorite from the desserts menu. Chef Peter explained to us how few of the dishes were made, and was open to questions regarding the menu. Additionally, they also had a lot of good vegetarian options.
What we didn’t like as much: The Kai Jeow (omelette), was a bit too bland & basic. We didn’t see anything too special about it. Even the Paneer Satay was a bit too simple, not much flavor to it. Moreover, the Brunch Menu on the whole was not too healthy, there were a bit too many fried dishes.
What we recommend:
- The Litchi Mohito
- Gai Phad Phet Haeng
- The Chocolate brownie with toffee sauce
Ambiance: A bit too quiet and not too occupied for a Friday Brunch, but an astonishing view of the Dubai Fountain.
More on Mango Tree: They serve Brunch every Friday and Saturday 12.30 pm onwards. 299/- aed per person. Not too hard to locate in Souk Al Bahar. Over all a good experience, though we have tried better Thai food in the area.
