Mango Tree serves genuine Thai dishes from each of the four main culinary regions: rich and fully flavored dishes from the North, spicy cuisine from the Northeast, more mild dishes influenced by the Chinese cooking style from the Central region, and hot and spicy cuisine from the South. In each dish one will find the artful blending of savory, sweet, sour and spice which delivers the harmonious taste in each bite, and Thai food is naturally medicinal, bringing health and vigor to the meal. <br /><br />Those dining at this welcoming, upscale restaurant will enjoy the second floor 140-seat main dining room and the 24-seat seasonal outdoor terrace. Mango Tree also features a vibrant first floor 45-seat bar and lounge for those looking forward to sipping classic cocktails and innovative libations while listening to expertly curated music.

"What a wasted opportunity. You walk through a bar and up two levels to the dining room. The place has a wonderful ambiance and set-up. The service was great though the wine list is priced on the higher side. Tried the chili infused Spicy Siam- just too sweet for me! Didn't meet the hype or the way the server talked it up. The food was even more disappointing. Ordered papaya salad and veg spring roll. The spring rolls were ok but the papaya salad was totally bland (this after the server warned us that it is very hot). Main dishes: eggplant & mushroom curry, duck two-ways, & chicken green curry. We ordered all dishes to be very spicy. They were so bland and without any Thai flavor that we might as well have been eating at some generic non-Thai place. There is no curry to put over the rice, the spices are lacking. In short - the worst Thai food in DC metro area. Don't waste your $ here. Its not just over-priced, I wouldn't eat here even if it was free! Must say the servers try really hard. Hard to believe the bland food this restaurant is serving is a chain from Thailand! Chef Kennedy- you promised "high quality, and in good style" restaurant and to "we didn't want to Americanize Thai food when it came over, and to keep it very authentic". Style is there but please serve Thai food as it is meant to be served. I have been to Thailand and this is not authentic fare. Please do not tone it down so much that if we didn't know we were in a Thai restaurant we wouldn't have recognized the dishes."
