The Mango House culinary experience starts with the good vibes welcoming you in off the street. You are seated cordially and quickly so long as you've timed it right to eat outside of the rush hours of tourists from the other side of Lanta island. You enjoy the funky background music for a second and peruse the menu. Steven comes up to your table and asks what you'd like, how you'd like it cooked, and gives a recommendation or two as to pairings and current specials. A few moments of good cheer with the people at other tables later and your food is out. The next many minutes disappear in a blur of succulence and joy. As you sit back in your chair, wiping your face and breathing deeply in satisfaction, you know you have made an excellent decision as to where to eat that day. The pizza is awesome. The burger is a refreshingly Western change from the local cuisine and takes on "burger." The drinks are mixed strong!
Stopped there as we were walking through Old Town to escape some rain. We were soon glad we did because the food was fantastic, portions were great and the price was on point! The sound of the ocean underneath the floorboards was a nice touch too as the restaurant is built essentially right on the pier. HINT: get the grilled cheese sandwiches on rye. You won't be disappoint
barbecue is top, good trip but rooms too expensive for Lanta. Try another place to sleep, it,s my advice
