Visited Mango Thai Tapas tonight with our friends for the first time. Every single item we ordered, we would easily order again! Every sauce in every dish was so delicious you want to lick the dish clean! We ordered 2 nibbles, 11 tapas and 3 mains for the 4 of us and we know what we're ordering next time! Highly... More

Had not eaten at the premises for a couple of years and returned for a family meal. Good atmosphere although the temperature of the room was chilly. Two of our main courses both pad thai were very stodgy and not very well flavored. However The other two mains on our table were enjoyed. Credit to front of house staff when... More

My fiancé and I have been eating at Mangos regularly for the past few years and it is our favourite restaurant in Southampton. Cool decor, friendly staff and great food! They also do some good beers and cocktails. I couldn't recommend a visit more highly!

Intrigued by the concept of Thai Tapas, we dropped in for a late lunch and were not disappinted. Thai food is extremely varied and it is difficult to try (and expensive in the UK) to visit all of your favourites - freshly prepared tapas dishes allow you to explore all the flavours without breaking the bank. Pretty sure you can... More

We went at lunch time and while it was quiet the waitress was very helpful and friendly.We had a most excellent Tom Yum soup and followed it up with a very good green curry.The Thai chef really knows what she is doing.Excellent food.

I had no idea just how big this restaurant was! Every aspect of it is cosy and atmospheric and the food is amazing. The waiting staff were lovely and attentive to the point where they realised that our food had been delayed and gave us complementary prawn crackers! A really wonderful place for a romantic meal out.

Once again, I've got fantastic food from Mango yesterday. This time I went for a veggie meal as I was sharing with a non meat eater (eww I know). Mango corn cakes are exceptional and taste a lot better than they sound! The veg temp was nice and crispy even after cycling back with it. Also, not being nosey or... More

This is our favourite restaurant (correct at time of posting!) We have been visiting Mangos for several years, it's our place to go to for dinner with visiting friends as there is something tasty for everyone to eat. We prefer to dine down stairs in the bar area as its lively, busy and close to the bar and on the... More

If you like spicy food - this is the place for you. I ordered the hottest dish in the menu, thinking I can be a man and not break a sweat while eating it, well I was wrong. I needed a lot of beer to push it down, but it was worth it. The have great curry and the rice... More

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!
