New Restaurant Report: DIVA Mango, Soi Silom 26, Bangkok, Thailand

DIVA Mango is a great new restaurant on Silom Road Soi 26. It’s not far from the well-known Sri Mariam Man Hindu temple , State Tower, and the Marriott Surawongse so it’s very convenient to get there. You can enjoy lunch in the afternoon or dinner before heading over to a rooftop bar. DIVA Mango offers tasty Thai and Western food. MTGB had a great dinner there — the food was fresh and awesome. If you love to try something different put DIVA Mango on your to-do list and check it out!
