I visited this restaurant on a Sunday night @ 8.30 pm. The closing time is 9.30pm. We were not greeted by the staffs and told they close the kitchen by 9 pm. The food we ordered were delivered in a couple of mins. The chicken satay was uncooked. The roti, curry and the noodles were half cooked. The house keeping... More

I have actually been a customer of Sweet Mango since the beginning! I've known the owner (Cindy) since she was a server at Taiwan just down the street, and I was thrilled at how delicious and unique the food at her restaurant is. It has all of the great typical Chinese food, but it also has Thai food and BURMESE... More

Sweet Mango has some of the best Chinese food I have ever tasted. The owner is attentive to make sure you are happy with your choices. It is smallish with a cozy ambience. There is good variety. When I go to San Jose, I always make it a point to eat at Sweet Mango.

The food here is very good and tasty. We tried a few different items like Kung Pao, Fried rice, Eggplant curry and Roti prata and all items were good. The service was ok and we had to wait really long for the food although the restaurant was not very crowded. They mentioned that they got a lot of To-go orders... More

Burmese is a mix of what we call Chinese and Thai foods. Wonderful food, great service. We go at least once a month.

Yes, one of the best I have been to. Fabulous Asian restaurant with great flavors of China, Thailand and Burma. Run by husband and wife team. It is a smaller place but tables are comfortable and decoration is appropriate. The food is outstanding. Many dishes. My favorite are the pad thai and the coconut curry chicken. Simply scrumptious. Service is... More

We started with the tea leaf salad which unfortunately is nothing to rave about. Lack of flavors that you usually find with a tea leaf salad, heavy on the dressing which seemed like a basic Italian, and way too expensive for what you get.

Went there for the first time last night. I would have given 3 stars, but there were so many minor things wrong (some major as well) that I can't rate higher than 2 stars. I wanted to order the red curry with prawns. When I did so, I requested all eggplant as the veg, explaining that I was allergic to... More

Pros: Very good food. Friendly service. Interesting menu. Large restroom. Cons: Not the most attractive building. Suggestion: Ask for the Oolong Tea. It’s not on the menu, but was perfect with this cuisine. Star Ratings: - Overall: 4 - Food Quality: 4 - Food Quantity: 4 - Exterior: 2 - Dining Room Attractiveness: 3 - Menu: 5 - Service: 4... More
