The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant

The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant, delivery

We had eaten once from Mango Tree years ago. It's a little farther out than where we normally venture to but since we're all ordering in these days, I thought it would be nice to revisit them

The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant, erachi ishtu

I noticed a Erachi ishtu on the menu which immediately brought to mind something very similar I had once at Swaadhisht. Didn't regret it. Nice creamy coconut broth with spices and tender onions and a bit of heat. Those sliced bits of green chilli in them added a great aroma. Mutton in the broth was tender as well. I think the one from Swaadhisht was more peppery.

The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant, murg makhani

I enjoyed the murg makhani - seemed like more than I did the last time. My thoughts of it might have changed a little. I enjoyed the balance of the cream and tang. I wonder if the recipe has changed from that time. It was too bad that I had too little naan or rice to finish up all the gravy.

The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant, mango mapas

I didn't remember it but apparently I had ordered their mango mapas previously as well. Still liked the tangy creamy flavours of this green mango curry.

The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant, lemon basmati rice

Starch was their lemon basmati rice. There was some nutty aroma - maybe from the spices and lentils. Not getting the lemon though.

The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant, mango naan

I wanted to get a another opinion on the mango naan that Mango Tree after all this time. It was tastier than what I recalled from the last time. The fragrance from the mango along with some butteriness wafted out as soon as I opened the foil wrap. Also unlike the previous time, I tasted mango. I'm not sure what dip it would be suitable for since every gravy option would be overpowering the mango flavour on these naan.
