Mango Tree was one of the first restaurants in Souk Al Bahar to offer Downtown diners a place to go for a reasonably priced dinnertime experience, but unfortunately it seems to be sitting on its laurels. Busy every night of the week, you’ll have to book ahead to get a space on the terrace, while inside the restaurant is split into two parts: a modern bar/restaurant and a much quieter back room, which feels a little forgotten and lacking in atmosphere.
A broad range of dishes fills the thick menu, which features everything from chicken and cashew nuts to more exotic mud crab- and lobster-based curries. But prices veer dangerously towards the ludicrous for anything other than a chicken or duck dish; more disappointing, however, is the lack of spice and adventure in any of the dishes. The location and decor bespeak fine dining, but what Mango Tree offers is a distinctly average, accessible Thai food (unless you’re willing to fork out Dhs250 for a plate of shellfish).
