Back to Basics: The Mango Tree series of restaurants — known for its classed-up traditional Thai fare — branches out to the New Territories with a new location in Yuen Long called Mango Tree Kitchen.
Look & Feel: Eschewing the elegant look of Mango Tree in Elements, West Kowloon, Mango Tree Kitchen’s casual vibe is much more akin to Mango Tree Café in Cityplaza, Tai Koo. Think plenty of dangling pendent lights, fun murals, and greenery-filled walls in the sprawling Yoho Mall.
On the Menu: All the favorites are here, from spring rolls and green mango salad to curries and mango sticky rice. Try the signature tom yum goong (serves two, $128) or the yellow curry crab ($368). The menu features an impressive list of meat and seafood mains, too, like roasted slow-cooked suckling pig ($188) and five-spice crispy chicken ($168). There’s a range of cocktails and wines, but it’s the array of juices, coolers and smoothies that grab our attention, with such sumptuous drinks as the Thai yuanyang (with Thai iced tea, coffee, and Thai tea ice cream, $48) and the tri-color cooler (with coconut milk and chendol jelly, $32).
Great For: Regular dinner hangouts, if your’e a New Territories inhabitant.
