We came here for a quick bite to eat and were so impressed with the service and quality of food! We are moving to the area and we will definitely be back on a regular basis. Couldn't recommend enough!

We decided to have a take-away from some decent Thai restaurant in South Norwood and found out about Mantanah. It was a very good choice. It turned out it is not just a take-away shop but a very pleasant restaurant with a nice decor. Since...More
