“Tiny but full of wonderful things! Not to be missed!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Mango Thai is a tiny place but between the fabulous food and wonderful waitstaff it's not to be missed. The mango spring rolls and tempura were wonderful, but the crab and avocado rolls a little bland. I ordered the Pad Kee Mow w/ chicken and it was wonderfully spicy (but not too) and fresh. The food is fresh and flavorful as well as moderately priced. Add to that the "bring your own" policy and it adds up to SPECTACULAR! We would highly recommend.

“Fresh, different, and open on Sunday”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were looking for a place to eat at 4:30 pm on a Sunday and after a few other favorites were closed, chanced on Mango Thai. the massamun curry was perfectly spiced, although we agreed it was more like a stew ( the meat and potatoes were in huge tasty chunks). The Pad Thai was also quite good and as expected. The portion sizes were smaller than at other restaurants, but we left sated and not stuffed, so felt it was a good trend towards healthier eating. The wait staff was casually dressed to the point of distraction, but very friendly. Fast service, too.

“Amazing Food Everytime”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

My husband and I are regulars at Mango. We actually were engaged at their first store 'Chai Thai" which has sadly closed. But Mango is a perfect replacement. The only problem we can see is there is a lot of turn over with their staff. Since we come here often we'd like to see a familiar but that is usually not the case. The food is amazing every time and the atmosphere is cozy and small which we like.

“Lovely Thai food and great value”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Mango Thai is small so we were lucky to get a table on a Sunday evening. We had two mains, chicken Larb salad and Basil Shrimp and Chicken, both were well spiced and flavoured, the Basil shrimp and minced chicken especially. Service was good and as the restaurant is BYO for wine, the value was also excellent. If only it was easier to get a table!

“Wonderful Neighborhood Place”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I met a friend who lives in the neighborhood for a wonderful dinner. The food was fresh and delicious. It's a small place. So I'd recommend either getting their early or be willing to wait.
