Indian Mango Tree titillates taste buds

@Sunday Observer 03 APR 2005

For those who relish North Indian food the Mango Tree Restaurant at Dharmapala Mawatha Colombo 3 is the obvious choice.

The restaurant with a Rs. 15 million investment was opened in June last year with a seating capacity for 45 guests. Owned by Viraj S. Panchal and Sukhvinder Singh the BOI approved Tourist Board A grade speciality restaurant became a much sought after place in a very short time.

This induced us to go for a second phase with a further investment of Rs. 15 million and doubling the seating capacity, said Dhirendra Negi, the Restaurant Manager.

The new wing was opened to coincide with the first anniversary celebrations of the restaurant. "We also hope to start outdoor catering as well as a delivery service to office staff in the near future. At present we operate a take away service and it is very popular among our customers", he said. The restaurant has a lounge area, tastefully decorated to suit the atmosphere including the sofas and cushions. This has a seating capacity for about 15 guests to enjoy a quiet drink. There is an overhead projector for those who enjoy fashion and a Sports TV.

The restaurant has two Indian chefs and 50 Sri Lankans and we may increase the numbers as we start the outdoor catering, Negi said.

The restaurant offers a variety of 106 dishes including desserts.

There is an array of drinks including the North Indian specialities.

He said that all spices except for one or two items are purchased locally.

Lunch at the restaurant is served from 12-3p.m. while dinner is served between 7p.m. to 11p.m. The staff is very courteous and hold meetings daily to discuss the menus, problems and also get advice from their senior staff and this makes the difference. Negi said the name Mango Tree was selected because the premises has three mango trees and in India the mango is considered as the king of fruits.
