Description: The Mangostin tavern with its modern, authentic cuisine from the Far East. Located in an old villa in the city district Thalkirchen, near the Zoo, Mangostin is full of life, joy, exquisite delicacies from Thailand, Japan and Vietnam. In summer enjoy the short getaway feeling on the terrace and the adjacent garden: Mangostin Lounge Garden is a hip meeting place and with its cookshop, it is a casual interpretation of Munich's beer garden lifestyle.

After 18 years (due to a very unpleasant experience with a waiter in 1999) I went to Mangostin yesterday: the food was amazing - very fresh fish, decent size of the meals, beautiful way of presenting, great taste = overall wonderful cuisine.
High prices are acceptable for this kind of food.

The service is not in line with the high prices though: even so we had no specific bad experience this is why I am not impressed
- we had to wait for getting seated - but we had to wait for one specific guy, the other service personnel was also at the entrance and did not help us and did not even greet us
- we had some questions to the girl who served us - she had to go back twice to clarify
- there was a special offer for a free drink if you come dressed "Oktoberfest"-like. We were partially dressed "Oktoberfest" - like and asked with a smile if this would be good enough. She had to go back again and very reported back a "no". This is a very junior way of reacting. What a pity.

Nice restaurant with a fantastic garden around. Unfortunately it was raining, we sit inside it. The restaurant is quite elegant and formal. Good service and high quality food ( good fish), a bit expensive but in line with Munich average prices for similar restaurant.

We had a reservation, which is highly recommended since the restaurant was full. However the service was really slow to start. We had to wait for a solid hour before we got the menus, than another good 30 min before we could get the waiters to provide us with the sushi selection... In the mean time we were left alone, and we were not in the corner!
However, the food cans fast after the order and it was excellent. Clearly one of the best sushi I've eaten.
I would still recommend it, but be prepared as you may have to wait for a long time before eating...

We are very sorry for whatever may have been the reason for your having to wait so long for the menu! No, this is not normal - please accept our apology. The sushi is a different story. Our chef prepares most types of sushi only as the orders come in. This makes sure that the sushi (as well as other dishes) is as fresh as possible. We are glad that you liked what we served and hope that you may be willing to see us again.
