At last Mangosteen makes it onto the site. Thanks James

I really like this place. The two girls who run it are really friendly and welcoming and the food , whilst not spectacular , is tasty and good value. Simple "asian fusion" menu done well. The Sea Bream with cripsy leeks and pak choi is a favorite of mine. Oevrall clean , bright and airy with good service and a nice atmosphere. Good place for a saturday lunch or a quiet evening meal.

I know its a bit of a trek down the hill from the triangle but compared to its nearest equivalent (like Mumu) it's way ahead( and the 322 goes back up th Hill if you can't face the walk)

I've just been in there enjoying the Saturday lunch. I think the opening hours above may be incorrect - I was told today that it's 12-3, 6-11pm in the evening all days except Sunday.

We're out of date already? I took the hours down from what they had displayed in their window, about 6 weeks ago! Thank you for letting me know, I have updated the main listing.

Brilliant restaurant. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the food was very well regarded by the veggies, the vegan and the meat eaters in my party!

Smashing restaurant. Love the food, the people are great and seem to know most people who come in by name.

Highly recommend it - especially the Thai Green Curry. :rolleyes:

Tried Mangosteen for the first time the other night and was very impressed. The menu is original, the cooking is excellent and it's a very nice space, much nicer than you would think looking in from outside. The service was excellent - friendly, caring and discrete.

Highly recommended, we're going back there soon.

Nice food, I really rate it. The flavours are oriental, but the presentation and structure is more fusion / modern european - for ex., meat dishes are often grilled and served whole, rather than sliced and stir-fried; there's a wider variety of carbs than the usual rice-or-noodles (sweet potato mash, mmm!), but served as part of the dish rather than as an optional side. It's fusion for sure, but without the pretentiousness.

Mrs. WH was a bit less impressed, but she's a bit more of a traditionalist when it comes to Eastern food. We'll doubtless be returning at some point though!

Me and a pal went to this place during the week, the sun was out and shining down on their outside tables so we sat there - the food was brilliant i can't fault it... Ive been trying to find an alternative to Tamnag for a while now and i think ive found it. Great mixture of dishes to suit most peoples palettes so please go down to try it. They are most accommodating to their customers.... BRILLIANT!

Mangosteen had a reasonably good review in Time Out this week. You know - a kind of 'it's not bad for this part of London' type of thing...

Here is the review.....

At least they didn't call the area 'trashy' and 'not somewhere you would leave your car' as they did a few years ago when reviewing the same restaurant. It must be on the up ;)

Actually I think that was the review that in the Time Out Restaurant guide. There was another review in the Time Out Magazine - not quite as nice as that one.
