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

Came here for a girly catch up and good food. There were 5 of us but we were shown to a table set for 6 then after ordering drinks we were asked to move as we had been seated on the wrong one. I ordered a Pina Colada cocktail but found it a little strange when asked if I wanted... More

I had heard about Mango through a friend and decided to try the Portswood venue as it was my birthday and I could choose. Wow what amazing food , however it's a bit small so you would expect the service to be better. Beautiful food, service could be better but for such a small venue the napkins could be better... More

We have visited Mango Thai Tapas on a number of occasions and always had good food and service. The other day we again went for lunch and the food and service was better than any time in the past. Chicken Pad Thai and Penag Curry with a drink in their lunchtime deal is just great value. Generally there is always... More

Visited several times over recent years, and never had a bad visit. Food is freshly prepared and always tastes great. Ribs just fall off the bone, curries are really good, and I recommend the Pad Thai too. Pick a cocktail too, you won't be disappointed. Good atmosphere, cosy and intimate, I urge you to book Friday/Saturday. Parking can be challengining!

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!
