An intimate den moments from London's South Bank, Sticky Mango creates bold, modern takes on Southeast Asian street food. Overseen by celebrity chef Peter Lloyd, this is a spot to come and share beautifully presented small plates with friends, with the low lighting and contemporary soundtrack creating a welcoming ambience.
A bold, eclectic range of exotic recipes feature on the Sticky Mango menu, all made with carefully sourced ingredients. The small plates are ideal for sharing, and include options like Irish rock oysters with coconut and lemongrass granita and chilli tapioca pearls, as well as the popular crispy pork belly steamed buns with white cabbage, spring onion and homemade Sriracha. Bigger plates feature recipes such as Panang ox cheek curry, and Hainanese baby chicken with truffle rice, and there are special tasting menus that are perfect for diners looking for a comprehensive taste of everything, including vegetarian-only selections.
Exotic desserts are the perfect way to finish at Sticky Mango in Waterloo. The signature sticky mango is served with sweet sticky rice and whipped condensed milk, and there is coconut and rum parfait with tropical fruits and tapioca pearls that is hugely popular.
Offering a bold, modern take on South East Asian street food, Sticky Mango is a 6-minute walk from Waterloo Station.

((((* 15 January 2018 by Shnuka from London
We had the 8 course taster menu. Some really delicious dishes - fresh and tasty and well balanced spices and flavours. There was a lot of variety across the 8 dishes which was great as a way to try a lot of different things, but one was a very bitter flavour which was not to my taste. I would happily come back again and just not order the bitter dishes.
Nice decor, and pleasant atmosphere. Great for a catch up with a group of friends or family, but slightly too many people for a quiet, romantic type dining experience.

The food was delicious, medium sized and a bit pricy. The waitress accidentally brought two glasses of wine, she offered to take one away and cancel the charge but she seemed a bit annoyed when we agreed. The view wasn't great to be honest. If I'm paying that much for food, I expect an impressive atmosphere that goes with it.

Disappointing - the food was OK, service was slow - no-one asked if we would like more wine.
We had been to RSJ's before and had excellent meals which is why we wanted to try it - but we won't be going back.

We were at 'Sticky Mango' on a Wednesday evening. We were long term fans of 'RSJ's' and it was pleasant to see some of the original staff still working in the restaurant. The welcome at the door was warm, and the service, on the whole, was good. The menu was very interesting and unusual, with potentially delicious dishes. However, the curry ordered by 2 of our party arrived barely luke-warm. The plates, which we were given to use, were cold which did not help. We arrived at 6.30pm and, after a very short while, the noise from other diners was such that we could not hear what our two friends, across the table from us, were saying or what the waitress was saying. This rather spoilt our experience. We may go again, but mainly because of the convenient position of the restaurant being close to Waterloo stations. I would recommend the restaurant but with certain reservations.

Top notch dining experience. Did not feel too rushed, so the pace was very accommodating. Recommendations were provided, which was good. Food was excellent as was the duration of each course. Restaurant atmosphere was very lovely. The only thing that is a concern and may be for other diners as well, is that the room is so dimly lit, that reading the menu was quite difficult.

Delicious tasting menu, excellent service. Perfect after matinee at the Old Vic. Very good variety of special dishes, nicely presented and all freshly prepared ingredients. Generous portions and good value. Sticky mango 'fried egg' dessert was funny and yummy, as was the macaroon and salted caramel ice cream. Very friendly staff. Thank you.

2nd visit here and it has now expanded. Good ambiance and service. We had a few of the small plates which were tasty particularly the spring rolls and shrimp. We also had a 'larger plate' chicken noodles but not much chicken and not sure portion size would have satisfied my husband as a dinner. We were a little disappointed when asking about tea to only be offered english breakfast or camomile - surprised not to see Jasmine for example. Hot milk for the coffee was served over-micro'd as had thickened - but replaced when pointed out. I would try this restaurant again but with some reservations.

Service was great, welcome was friendly. Food was served promptly. Good choice pre-Southbank theatre, as the options around the National are fairly dire. Curry puffs were lovely, pork buns ok, duck with fois gras was pretty ordinary (sorry) and the Mamak BBQ chicken was just ok- not as overly flavoursome in it's accompanying curry sauce/mild sambal as expected....which is a shame, as the chicken was cooked well. Challenge us with some heat! Enliven the food with fresh herbs! Alas, I can cook better than this, and for a bill of £70 for a very quick pre-theatre bite, I expect a bit more.
