I have always been a huge fan of Mango Thai Tapas and would visit the Portswood outlet on a regular basis. Personally, I would recommend ordering the green curry, tom yum soup, crispy tofu and phad thai noodles. Service is great and the restaurant has a really vibrant yet cosy atmosphere, although... read more

Having visited the other Mango restaurant the previous week, my wife and I decided to try out the one in Portswood at lunch time on the following Saturday. (It sells soft shell crabs which are not on the other menu.) The food was equally tasty, and the staff were pleasant and chatty. However the place was empty when we arrived... More

I went recently for a Birthday meal with several friends, both the service and the food were exceptional. The atmosphere was relaxed, and we were catered to in a kind and swift manner. One little treat were the pots of chilli insects!

Really good foods but it's a bit pricy for little tapas ... only if you're willing to flush the money ... I only went there to treat my partner a birthday meal ... the place is very small, overcrowded ...

We had our work Christmas party here and they were superb. The food was fresh and plentiful for 18 people. Full of flavour and a great variety. Staff are friendly and enthusiastic about their cuisine. One of the best Thai restaurants in Southampton.

In a lovely calming tranquil atmosphere. Delicious Thai food served with a great variety of cocktails (which are on offer most of the week) by friendly staff. It's our regular go to restaurant for dining out. Great price too.

Others have described this as cosy and it is and it has a great local community feel offering good Thai food. The menu you is simple, small enough to offer good choice and be freshly cooked. an interesting approach offering Thai tapas style dishes which are tempting and tasty. we enjoyed bread crumbed prawns and chicken satay followed by Lamb...
