“Worth more than one visit.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Have been with various groups of friends and no one has ever been disappointed with their meal. Breakfast - great variety and very reasonably priced. Lunch - can choose from Western or Indian menu, lots of variety there. Dinner - Indian menu only , very yummy.
Look out for their lunch specials which include a glass of wine. I can highly recommend this restaurant,

“THE TASTE IS TO DIE FOR”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Absolutely authentic tastes with rich and wholesome portions. Have tried take away only and yet to try the dine-in, but the food is simply awesome. The gravies that are required to be rich are indeed thick and creamy and the ingredients used are absolutely perfect. You can clearly make out the conscious efforts of the chef to bring authentic Indian tastes to the customers. By far the best Indian food I've ever had in Australia.

“Fabulous Indian - Poor Service”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I have eaten in at this restaurant and also had take away delivered. The food is fabulous, the the best Indian Food I've ever had and I could not fault it. The service however, is another story. The staff are friendly but a lot of the waitresses cannot understand English. There is one anglo waitress who spends a lot of her time running around from table to table trying to catch what people are asking for. The waitresses have no idea of how to be attentive, which can ruin the experience as you find yourself constantly asking for things or trying to catch their eye to come to the table. Their "uniform" is also letting the team down. They were dressed in very short faded black cheap "supre" type skirts with no stockings - just bear legs.... and not everyone looks good with bear legs, especially in a restaurant. Very tacky. I would go back though and I would definitely order take away again. This restaurant has the potential to be one of the best in the area if it lifted it's service game.

“Awesome food and below par service”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

It would be unfair to write off the Mango Tree on the basis of a single visit, because the food was outstanding. Beautifully presented and completely delicious. These guys really know how to make lovely Indian food. I had a daal which was as good as any I have tasted and the steamed rice was a beautiful blend of colours and flavour. Its such a shame, having got the hard stuff spot on that the staff (and there were plenty) failed to get a few basic things right. Main course was delivered before entrees were finished. We quickly moved the entrees and looked at the steaming bowls of beautiful curry, while waiting at least 10 minutes - maybe 15 - for a few bowls of rice. Even asking once didn't help. How hard can it be to get rice in an Indian restaurant? Staff were lovely but inattentive and innefficient. Such a shame!! I will go back next time I'm in town because the food was brilliant.
