Really good authentic Thai food; one of the best Thai restaurants that I've been to! A really nice, friendly place, and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend if you haven't been before.

The menu is great with fantastic food. Would 100% recommend the Crispy Beef and the Crispy Squid. The place has a nice feel and a great atmosphere between staff and customers. All the staff were really friendly and couldnt do more to help me, Would definitely return!

Beautiful food with a fantastic experience! Staff were very attentive and the food is incredible every time! I have visited 5 times now and each time it does not disappoint! My husband has also had stag events here and again the food is spot on! Fresh ingredients and authentic atmosphere it really is worth a visit!

This restaurant is an absolute gem. I am a huge fan of thai food and this place is an absolute winner. The food is delicious, particularly the massamman curry (the best thai curry I've ever had), lots of great menu choices, service is always very good, and environment great. Highly recommended, a must try.

I visited Mango last Saturday night with a group of girlfriends. It's a compact little restaurant with not much space between the tables, and it was pretty well packed. The atmosphere was great and there was a lively buzz about the place. I am always concerned when I eat out as I am unable to tolerate gluten, but I was... More

Dined here with friends on Sat night (booking essential) as it's a full house. Love this place, mainly because it reminds me a tropical Thai garden all lit up with fairy lights. Put it this way you would never know you were in Southampton! Anyway onto the Exquisite food...... I may have mentioned before that I believe this, outside of... More

A funky, small and friendly place, attentive and enthusiastic staff, a wild and wicked list of cocktails, and clearly, a loyal local following. And then the food - rich, deep flavours, with a delicate touch. We had sweet potato parcels and bird nest chippings, crispy beef and smooth and soupy Panang chicken curry, one of the best I've had. Only... More

I had enjoyed a take away from here in the summer, I thought the place looked interesting, so we decided to eat in this time. I like the cosy atmosphere of the restaurant and the menu provided us with a good choice of food. The four of us choose four items from the tapas menu as starters and four different... More

Went to Mango at Portswood with family 4 of us in all. We had a really delightful evening, the staff were very friendly and we joked with them. The food was served promply and was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, it is rather small but not cramped. The prices are reasonable and you can eat as much... More

I really wanted to give a 3 star for this place, but the service we received didn't really make it. We ordered 2 starters and 1 main to start with and this took about 45-50 mins to come. The table next to us were waiting an hour between their starters and main and we're getting a bit annoyed. The waitress... More

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!
