The Mangosteen Restaurant
Authentic Thai Cuisine & Wine
Authentic Home-Style Thai Cuisine & Mediterranean delights with Asian herbs and spices – Organic, fresh and healthy!
The Restaurant with its open show kitchen and wine cellar offers a la carte Mediterranean delights with Asian tastes in a refreshing open-air setting. For classic Home-Style Thai Cuisine, we will present you a separate menu, which includes many famous Thai dishes. Everything is freshly prepared, which means it does sometimes take a bit longer. Special requests are always welcome, so if you are looking for something not on the menu, please let us know. The restaurant features interesting theme nights, such as the Thai Food Lovers Night, the 5 Gems of Asia and various changing activities.
The Pool & Lounge Bar, partially integrated into the swimming pool, is open from morning until 23:00. It is especially popular for a sundowner during the extended happy hour (3 pm until 6.30 pm) where guests receive 2 drinks for the price of 1. Comfortable lounge sofas under tropical palm trees invite for a chillout drink and snacks.
The underground, cozy Wine Cellar is a unique feature in Phuket. Two flights of stairs down and guests have the feeling to be somewhere in the Bordeaux region. Private dinner arrangements are offered for your anniversary, birthday or any other special occasion.
In Room Dining is available all through the day until 22:00. A variety of Western and Asian meals can be served in the privacy of your room.
Our Chefs are using only the best and healthiest ingredients available, combining great taste with freshness and health benefits. Unfortunately, the trend of using more sugar and MSG (monosodium glutamate) for Thai food in local restaurants is just getting worse and worse. Both “ingredients” are highly addictive and many Thais now just eat nothing without them anymore. Most of them are unaware of the dangers. Eating in-house however means, staying away from these negative trends.
Natural Green Hydroponics Vegetables: We are purchasing all vegetables from one of the best local hydroponic and organic farms, which is the guarantee for best, healthy quality. Prices for organic vegetables are much higher but we believe your health is worth more.
Rice-Bran Cooking Oil: The ideal cooking oil for many Thai dishes, as the smoke point is much higher than the one of Palm Oil, which is otherwise used. As Palm Oil is by far the cheapest, it is the cooking oil of choice at all local restaurants. It is at the same time the unhealthiest oil available, so we are not using it at all.
Gourmet Olive Oil, Cold-Pressed: Using only best cold-pressed olive oil for all our western cuisine, our guests can easily taste the difference. Olive oils are imported from Spain and relatively expensive here in Thailand, therefore not commonly used in most restaurants. Enjoy our healthy Mediterranean dishes, prepared with gourmet olive oil only.
