I recently had the pleasure of photographing the interior of Blue Mango Indian restaurant and the proprietor kindly invited me for a meal there.
I don’t frequent Broad Street very often, and I before my photo mission I wasn’t aware that the restaurant was there! It’s kinda off the beaten track of Broad Street and can be found in Regency Wharf which also houses a couple of other eateries.
The interior is stylish and spacious – you won’t be bumping elbows with the people at the next table! The waiters were attentive and efficient. The food was elegantly presented and more importantly it tasted very, very good!
It made for a sophisticated dining experience. The week before I went to the very popular Al Faisals on Stoney Lane, which was a different event altogether! A good event, but still very different to Blue Mango. It didn’t have the calm ambiance, was very noisy, the waiters were efficient but maybe a little too much – no sooner had I taken the last bite of my starter, out came the main course. It was a bit more rushed. Having said that, I enjoyed eating there, and loved the food but the Blue Mango offers more of a calm oasis with a dash of relaxation thrown in.
It’s definitely somewhere to bear in mind next time you fancy something spicy!
See you next Friday! :)
