Mango Tree is definitely catering to the nearby tourist traffic. The restaurant is big and open-air, with a reasonably-sized bar. There's nothing special about the food, the menu is pretty expansive with a wide range of Thai food. Because of its location and appeal to the tourist crowd, you are going to be paying a premium for food at Mango Tree. Additionally it attracts the night-life crowd, so maybe not the best for a romantic evening, if you are near a table preparing for a night out on the town.
Unfortunately, our experience at Mango Tree was dampened by the service. It was very poor. The restaurant seemed busy, but nothing overwhelming, yet we were left at length at our table without being asked about drinks and ordering. Additionally, our food was not brought out together and had to remind our server we were waiting for another dish.
We ordered chicken satay, pork fried rice and Phad See Ui with chicken. All the dishes were pretty good and didn't short change us on the serving size or meat.
I would recommend Mango Tree if you're in the neighborhood and wanting traditional Thai, just expect to pay a little more and possibly avoid the busiest of times, in order to get a little better service. It might be worth while to know you are getting more quality food and lessen the chance of getting sick.
