Going Thai at Mango Tree Bistro

Mango Tree Bistro is a restaurant located at the 2nd Level of Greenbelt 3 in Makati City. The restaurant offer Thai dishes and it is open from 11am to 12mn. The restaurant provides a casual dining experience with a very relaxing feel inside.  
I visited the place when I was with my cousins and we were looking for a dinner place at the time. Since we are still waiting for the others to arrive, we decided to grab some beer and their Shrimp and Mango Ceviche. The appetizer is a mixture of raw shrimp and fresh mangoes with a bit of chilli spiciness. I pretty much agree with my cousin that this is better as a nacho dip than being eaten by itself. Foodie note? Masarap with reservation. 
Since we are already drinking, we also decided to order their Pork Sisig. I actually smelled the sisig from the table beside us and because it smelled so good  we decided to grab one. The sisig is actually on the chewy side and it is actually really tasty. Just a pinch of lime and this is good. Foodie note? Masarap.
When we are completed we decided to finally order dinner. We ordered their Phad Thai Jay, Spare Ribs, Steak Jim Jaew, Chicken Satay and their Tum Yung Goong. 
The first one on our menu is their Spare Ribs. Sweet grilled spare ribs that is delectable though I would really love this more if the meat is really tender. Foodie note for this one? Masarap with reservations.
Their Steak Jim Jaew is grilled marinated beef tenderloin with their Northern Thai Dipping Sauce. The beef is tender and juicy and the flavor is intact. Their dipping sauce is not too spicy. for those who might not spicy sauces which is very much abundant in Thai cuisine. I can eat the beef even without the dipping sauce. Personal foodie note? Masarap.
Mango Tree Bistro's Chicken Satay is really good with their peanut sauce. This grilled chicken is tasty but it is a bit dry. Though I still liked this with their really good peanut sauce. Foodie note? Masarap.
The Tum Yung Goong is shrimp in Tom Yum soup. The sour and spicy flavor of the soup is just right as well as its creaminess.  Masarap.
The Phad Thai Jay was just okay for me. I've tried different Phad Thais before and I even tasted a home cooked Phad Thai prepared by some Thai friends. I think the Phad Thai lacks flavor though the Phad Thai Jay is basically vegetables and tofu only. My foodie note? Masarap with reservation.
Overall, the restaurant dishes that we tried is pretty okay with our tastebuds. The service can be improved because it takes so much time for the staffs to assist us. We visited on a weekday for dinner and the restaurant is not even full so I was kinda expecting an exceptional service. Pricing is a bit on the upper scale and every dish can serve around 2 person. Rating this restaurant based on the above preferences 3 out of 5.
