Description: The original Thai Tapas Bar. Opening in 2007, Mango has become renowned on the south coast for its great food and atmosphere. Set on the corner of Portswood road and the Bevois Valley student area, Mango's uniqueness appeals to all age groups. People often talk about the restaurant's ambience - there's nothing quite like the energy that spills out of Mango's front doors: Low lighting, candles, big windows, exotic murals and filigree dividers, great music and warm and friendly service all contribute to its success, but the food is ultimately its greatest pull...All food is freshly prepared to order, by expert, Thai chefs. Spices are specially imported from Thailand and only fresh ingredients and locally sourced meat is used, with a good selection of vegetarian dishes. Specialities from the tapas menu include the Coconut Chicken and Na's Crispy Beef, and the Thai curries and noodle dishes from the main menu are not to be missed by any account. Mango really is a little gem in Southampton, and now there's another one in the centre of Southampton's Cultural Quarter!

I have eaten here a few times but was particularly impressed on NYE whilst dining upstairs. The food was delicious (as always) but the service received from Samuel was second to none; attentive, pre-empted our needs and made some fabulous recommendations that really topped off our celebrations. If visiting, try to make sure it's a night he's working

I have eaten in many Thai restaurants and this food was simply bad. We were also rushed to leave the table as it was booked for next customers.

This was my third visit to mango portswood and once again the food was breathtaking and reasonably priced. However, and this is a big however, the service was extremely disappointing. Seated at a table of 4 stuffed into the corner we were forgotten for a while before ordering drinks. After asking the waitress to come back in a minute to... More

very impresses with selection of food. Wide variety of starters as tapas and great selection of main courses. We had a couple of tapas and one main course stir fry with rice, more than enough for two. Food well cooked and presented. Staff very friendly and attentive. Cost only 35 including drink but not the well earned tip.
