Yoo, it’s a vibe! Cambridge is where it’s at! Yes, I know.. Who would’ve thought …
Luxury Thai dining.
Where? 46 Grosvenor Place, London SW1X 7EQ
Mango tree, a luxury Thai restaurant, is situated in the heart of Belgravia, very close to the Buckingham palace. The restaurant has previously appeared on BBC1’s MasterChef and you could have read about Mango tree in J.K. Rowling’s novel too.
Walking into the restaurant, we were greeted by a polite member of staff, left our coats in the cloakroom and were shown to our table. PAUSE went to the restaurant on Thursday evening and was pleasantly surprised how busy the restaurant got by 9pm. The interior of the restaurant is very modern and spacious yet welcoming which was achieved thanks to it being feng-shui designed to enhance guests’ dining experience.
The restaurant serves tasty dishes from 4 culinary regions:
- rich and mild dishes from the north
- spicy food from the east
- mild dishes influenced by the Chinese cooking style from the central region
- hot and spicy food from the south
