About Mango Thai Tapas - Above Bar

Dear diners, should you wish to change any details regarding the time or date of your reservation, or for alterations including dietary requirements, please contact the restaurant directly.

Indulge in some of the finest Thai in Southampton at Mango Thai Tapas on Above Bar Street, in the heart of city centre’s cultural quarter. Mango Thai Tapas is perfect for a group dinner, parties and for meeting friends for a night out on the town. The small plates – vegetable spring rolls, crispy squid and mussels in bacon – are delicious, or if you don’t fancy sharing go for the traditional massaman curry with slow-cooked lamb, dried spices, coconut milk, onion, potatoes and peanuts, or phad Thai noodles, the national dish of Thailand. Decorated like a beach bar on Koh Phi Phi, be sure to take advantage of Mango Thai Tapas on Above Bar’s 2-4-1 cocktail offer before heading out to enjoy the rest of Southampton’s nightlife.

The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and polite, and the service was fast (though we visited before it became busy). I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Great food and excellent service; veggies and vegans well catered for (waitress offered to change the sauce on a dish so that our vegan daughter could share a non vegan tapas dish with us). Would definitely go back.

Lovely restaurant, with gorgeous food. Very helpful and friendly bar staff / waitress / waiters. Fab atmosphere and the sun was shining too!! ...only complaint which isn't really a complaint, but a bit of air con or a ceiling fan would have been fab as it was very hot that day. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing! :)

As always the food was very good, we had pad thai and massuman curry. It wasn't very busy on this last visit so the food came out really quicky. Although I would recommend booking as every other time I've been it has been full. Lastly a mention of the friendly service always, even when they're really busy.

Nice food and drink but service was very slow to begin with and took 20minutes for our initial drink order. Food came out quicker though once order placed. Had to keep requesting service though rather than waiters / waitresses being attentive. Also issue with 20% offer as apparently have to quote prior to meal but this not mentioned anywhere. Waiter still took it off though. Would come here again.

On this ocassion the food was good but not of a standard comparable to other times I have visited regarding quality and money for value. For a stir fry dish it was lacking in vegetables but ample in onions. The staff as usual were excellent. There was a noisy group sat at the bar which was distracting and we were sat farthest away from them than anyone else.

Food was amazing unfortunately the service let it down. When arriving we had to wait quite a time to order drinks. Once ordering drinks there was no drinks from the taps although the waitress never said. When recieving my drink it was totally different because of this. It took a while for us to be able to order food. Once ordered we got bought somebody else's food and had to ask three times for some tap water. Once receiving the food it was amazing.

Food was excellent although the small pot of jungle bugs were overpriced at £3. Our table was positioned fairly near the bar and when people were waiting for their tables to be ready they got very close to our table. My husband was knocked a couple of times by handbags! Not an ideal setting to celebrate a wedding anniversary.

Great food and certainly good value for money. However the service was slow and a little chaotic at times. Upstairs tables could do with more ventilation. Would, however recommend as standard of food and value for money made up for the down sides

Good atmosphere and the food is really good. The waiting staff were very attentive and made us feel very welcome. Cocktails are very good too, especially the 2-4-1 deal.
