Mango Tree

Nicely presented Thai fare overlooking The Dubai Fountain at Mango Tree

  • Mango Tree
  • Free Flowing Friday Lunch (Friday)

    An afternoon of free-flowing mixed drinks, an appetiser platter, a choice of main course a dessert platter. Dhs245 (soft drinks), Dhs295 (unlimited house beverages).
    Timings: 12.30pm-4pm

Walking into this place, famous in Thailand as well as the UK, the dark welcome area inside Souk Al Bahar may trick you into thinking it’s a mysterious and fashionable setting where guests may only be glimpsed in the shadows.

Inside, though, it’s bright and bare and busy with waiters. What it lacks in décor – an underwhelming wooden theme – is made up for by some fine dish presentation. The deep-fried sea bass, for instance, arrives with skeleton and skin of the fish used as a wall to support a tower of fillets. The flesh doesn’t have a huge amount of flavour to it – the sweet chilli sauce pairing is the saviour. But it’s the prawn pad Thai that the venue does best. Covered in a spider’s web of egg, you’re best to crack in with a partner as it’s definitely a sharing-portion size or main, rather than the side claimed on the menu. Finish with the mango cheesecake – with chunky, ripe slices of the fruit on the side, a ratio of 80 percent cheese to 20 biscuit, and a drizzle of mango puree on top, it’s satisfying but not over-indulgent. A final tip? Grab yourself an outside spot in cooler weather for unmissable views of the dancing Dubai Fountain.

    Went there for friday brunch.
    they have a fixed menu for brunch and you can order as much of any item. but its delivered in plates from
    I was by myself and they delivered my soup and app and main at the same time. I understand that brunch time was finishing. and i sat down 5 minutes before last call. but couldve come 5 min intervals or something.

    tom yum was fab.
    soft shell crab was divine with my own mixture of sweet chili sauce and sour chilli fish sauce.
