Mangosteen's on Queensway

Hello all,

I felt compelled to write my own brief review having had a great meal at Mangosteen's on Friday night. We were looking or a Thai restaurant to satisfy my pregnant cravings, but were looking for somewhere new to try. We found Mangosteen's on Urbanspoon and decided to give it a go. Could not have been happier with the choice. It's not a large spot, but it was nicely decorated. Clean bathrooms (which goes a long way with me). The service was impeccable. Fong was a wonderful host and made several recommendations to us. All the food is made to order, including all sauces. For a table of 4, we had three appetizers, 4 mains which we shared and 3 desserts, again shared. The food was, as promised, fresh and all was wonderful! We especially enjoyed the chili fish, and the grilled beef. I thought the pad thai was a cut above that which i've had recently. No ketchupy taste anywhere! Loved it! We also had the red curry chicken which was excellent. The only have 3 desserts on the menu - sticky rice with mango, banana fritters with coconut or mango ice cream and a deep-fried banana with ice cream (forgive me as these aren't the exact titles). Fong brought us a complementary sample of the sticky rice dish as we ordered 2 of the fritters and one deep fried banana. The ice cream was light, fruity and wonderful. The fritters were my favorite with just the right amount of sweetness, but the sticky rice was really a fabulous comfort food way to end the night! Less than $100 for 4 of us, and we practically had to roll out of the place we were so full!

My only concern is that the place is hard to find, especially if you are driving Eastbound on The Queensway which we were. I couldn't see the place on Google street view either. Its in the same plaza as the Fish and chips restaurant. Across from Winners. On a Friday night, there were only 2 tables there (and one was our table of 4). I really hope more people try this place out so it doesn't go out of business. I know I will be back! They have a lunch menu for $7.95 as well.
