Fun Asian Dining is what their tagline is and truly so!. The moment you enter Mamagoto its that whiff of freshness that attracts you to this place. Colorful caricatures on all walls, bright cushion covers, a warm welcome greeting and lemongrass fragrance in the air - all combine to create a warm, welcoming and vibrant atmosphere, just the way an eatery should be.

We ordered a veg Tom Yum soup. Honestly after a long list of trials and errors at various Thai restaurants, I loved the authentic taste of this soup - also because it was not smelling of shrimps/prawns - which would generally happen at many other restaurants.
The thai veg crispy was yum except that it was a little bland, which was OK though as the overall taste was good . Mount Heung potatoes was a monsoon special that we ordered and it was honestly disappointing. Dripping oil and strong taste this certainly will not be on my list of recommendations.
The show stopper was the Veg Penang Curry, served with sticky rice. The rich creamy flavor and aroma are still filling my senses as i talk about it. It was quite good and the portion was generous. This is one of those dishes for which I would go back to Mamagoto.
The list of desserts wasnt very exotic/impressive. We ordered a caramel sponge cake with ice cream. It was nice but nothing out of the world.
Customer service was prompt and exemplary. The server, Jitendra was impressive.

Overall experience quite good and am definitely going back to try some more Thai food at Mamagoto.

Today, we visited Mamagoto at S29 Gurgaon. We had seen good reviews so could not help going with high expectations.

No doubt the server were courteous n helpful, the soup tasted fine but were disappointed with both the dishes ordered.. - the shredded potato appetizer -- the menu said it is served on a bed of fried potato shreds topped with hot sauce. After waiting for a long time, as our server had later informed us the first dish they had prepared was not upto the mark so the chef on his own was preparing a fresh dish for us n will take more time.

The dish that came was cold . When informed, the server said its coz a cold sauce is poured on the top.. Contrary to the menu description. The server was courteous to offer us to change it.

Even the main course.. The veg phad thai noodles fell quite short on our expectations!

Overall the experience was quite low on our expectations..

I surprise myself by giving this restaurant a three star rating. But, while the food is good, it is not outstanding. The flavours are good, and the price is good.

The wasabi Bloddy Marry did not have a strong wasabi flavour. Maybe, that was because I tried the virgin version.

The decor is casual, and fun. It is a good place to go with the family, but they should make the tables a bit bigger to accommodate larger groups.

Have been there practically every month since it opened and have never had a leas than brilliant experience!!

The food rocks each time and the service staff is really courteous. Their terriyaki meal in a bowl is my favourite dish and i think it is also a star selling item of the restaurant.

The name of the restaurant and its meaning are quite apt.

It is a fun diner, for the starters.
Its main doors are located smack in front of HUDA parking, hence parking isnt an issue at all. It is smartly nestled in Sector-29 HUDA market, which is a foodie's paradise in Gurgaon. Just when the doorkeeper opens the massive restaurant doors, you are welcomed into a different space, altogether. Its bright, its lovingly informal, its fun. the interiors are decorated in a way, which will just take away your exhaustion after a day's work. Its menu is even more fun to browse through, nice artwork, nice description.

Cocktails: Water-melon Martini and Green Apple Mojito.
Both of them were refreshing, with the right and correct proportions of alcohol and flavor. I would recommend Water-melon martini. Never had such a martini before. Its a lovely amalgamation of fruit sweetness and potion tanginess. Green Apple Mojito is just like any other mojito with green apple flavor, which believes me works in a good way.

Soup: Tom yum-chicken
We went for 1 by 2. the portion was respectable. It is a clear soup and house's specialty. the flavors were infused perfectly, with nothing overdone. Its a typical south-east asian soup with lemon grass, and other similar ingredients. the chicken was not in scarcity, thankfully.

Food: Mamagoto goreng
This was recommended to us by the waiter. and after having it, we did not regret it. The dish has a bowl of fried rice, accompanied with chicken roasted in skewers and south-east asian crisps, which trust me were really delicious. the portion is sufficient for 2. the rice is hot and spicy. the skewered chicken has a good sauce in which it was marinated and roasted. The crisps have a fish taste in them (pretty interesting).

All in all, it is a good place to go, if you are looking for a relaxed evening with a friend with no obligations of a formal setting. i would avoid having a date here, but shall visit it with friends for a nice chat and good Asian food.
