The Shortlist

Mango Tree
Nominated for Best Thai

Mango Tree is a sure-fire way of impressing visitors to Dubai. With a top floor Souk Al Bahar balcony, it offers one of the best vantages for catching The Dubai Fountain in full flow – and the ideal atmosphere to do so, watching the soaring water jets majestically erupt every half hour, as punctuation points in a leisurely meal, is way more appealing than an evening jostling with the crowds outside Dubai Mall. With such a USP it would be easy for Mango Tree to get complacent in the kitchen, but thankfully there’s no sign of that happening. With a number of additions to the (already lengthy) menu, we can report that new arrivals such as the duck paper rolls and steamed sea bass are fresh and zesty, while old favourites continue to perform. Service is warm and slick but just make sure you book well in advance.
.Open daily 12.30pm-11.30pm. Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai (04 426 7313).
