Sucky mango is an absolute triumph. Make sure you go and make sure you have the sticky mango for dessert

Food was nice, a really nice variety of dishes, the beers were good (BUT they did not provide a non-alcoholic beer, which was disappointing), otherwise the furniture, service and quality of the food was very good.

I feel this place has lost its way. Food was poorly prepared meat tough and generally mediocre. Decor is tired; I definitely would not go back or recommend it. And it is over priced!!!

Consistent with food quality, 4 visits since July. Service needs ‘tightening up’ but overall a great time was had.

SUMMARY
Mostly affordable and delicious food supplemented by quick and polite service makes this a solid 4 stars restaurant. Just avoid the lobster as it is not worth the asking price. If the lobster had had a normal size this place would have deserved 5 stars.

SERVICE
The service we excellent, and we both agreed that the ambience of the rooms combine for optimal experiences.

FOOD
We ordered a few different dishes. I have ordered them from best recommendation to the dishes that failed to impress.

1) Truffle egg fried rice (must try - best dish of the night)
2) Pandan Macaron (must try - we expected the mango sticky rice to be the best dish however this is by a mile their best dessert)
3) Rock oysters (they were good and juicy!)
4) softshell crab
5) vegetable curry

To avoid
Lobster dish (We ordered the whole lobster however it might have been the least lobster meat I have seen in a while. For some reason the lobster claws were also MIA. Avoid this one.)

The scrummiest yummiest tasty meal you could wish to have in London! Our third visit to Sticky Mango did not disappoint. We had old favourites like the Malaysian curry puffs and chicken satay, we tried the lobster for the first time which was out of this world along with delicious tiger prawn curry. Could not fault one morsel. Will be dreaming of this meal for months to come. We cannot wait for our next visit.

We've found our new favourite! Spring at Somerset House was our go to for fantastic food, service and ambiance...but not anymore. Blown away by the tasting menu - everything was simply beauty on a plate and our taste buds were treated to some of the most amazing flavours ever. the sommelier parred the wines with our food which was an extra surprise. Highly recommend. Fantastic value for money.

Small, atmospheric restaurant five minutes walk from the National theatre and Festival Hall complex. Excellent for pre/post theatre. Good selection of small and large plates. Imaginative far eastern food beautifully presented. Particularly enjoyed prawn curry. Friendly service.

Food was excellent - very tasty and well cooked.
We were seated downstairs and it was very noisy - we could hardly hear ourselves think, let alone talk! Ask to be seated upstairs.

My second visit here and I brought a couple of friends to try this place. Everything was excellent. The food was superb and it seems unfair to carp about anything but we did have to wait a while before having our order taken. The prices are a bit steep but overall it is good value for money. I wold certainly recommend Sticky Mango for a special occasion or even just a good night out

This is the second time I dined at Sticky Mango in a fortnight. The first one was a fabuluos experience. Last night it was a nightmare:(
We had to wait half an hour between our starters and the main dish. The food was not tasty and the portions much smaller than 2 weeks ago.Such a shame. Even the wine was questonable? Too bad for them!

À part le potage au lait de coco poulet qui m’a bien goûté j’ai trouvé le niveau général faible.
J’ai pris de l’agneau (lamb) qui était plutôt du bouilli d’agneau
Quant au mango sticky rice je ne l’ai pas trouvé sticky du tout et à part le show lors de la présentation je suis resté sur ma faim car j’en ai mangé souvent de bien meilleurs

Possibly the worst dining experience of my entire life of living in London for 40 years. Booked a table for 7:30pm dinner for two to try out this restaurant local to us for the first time. Ordered two starters and two drinks. These items arrived soon after the order and were eaten and drunk by 8pm. Mains were ordered shortly after 8:00pm. At 9:30pm we left the restaurant having not received the mains, no further drinks were offered from 8pm. That’s 2 hours in a restaurant and we were only served two small starters and two drinks, nobody came to check or care about us. Service was shocking. When we decided to walk out at the 2 hour mark, the manager didn’t charge for the starters or the two drinks and frankly I didn’t expect anything less. Needless to say I won’t ever be dining in this pathetic establishment again.
