The food is nothing special. Not horrible either. But the worst part is the service. Someone needs to teach the host to be a touch more gracious, answer customer questions politely, and treat his waitstaff with courtesy. And please don't act as if you are doing customers a favor by letting them eat there. There's enough decent Thain Brooklyn that no one would miss this place.

The delivery guy refused to bring the order to my door, and having to walk down four flights to pick it up defeated the purpose of ordering in. And I didn't notice he hadn't given me all my change until I had tipped him. The food was on par with the service. We only ordered the most basic menu items, and they were at best ok, at worst kind of gross. The Drunken Noodles were fine, a little oily but nothing out of the ordinary. The Pad Thai was unrecognizable as such. Just dry noodles with a faint peanut flavor. Gyoza were small and gummy. The container of Tom Yum was half filled with two huge wedges of underripe tomato, which was fine as the greasy soup itself tasted strangely like it came out of a can.

The corn patties were the most unappetizing I have ever eaten. This is usually a favorite Thai appetizer of mine but from Mango they were overcooked & flavorless! There is a whole section on the menu that is titled healthy vegetarian but in fact very few items listed are vegetarian because most contain fish oil. I realize that fish sauce is a stable in Thai cuisine but other Thai restaurants have vegetarian choices with no fish sauce. At the very least don't list food cooked with fish sauce as vegetarian. I ended up getting a rice dish that was just bland. So many better options in the neighborhood. SAVE YOUR $$$!

most of everything she did was just wrong. we got seated outside like we wanted, and the service wasn't slow that night, but... 1) the table she chose was right behind the AC exhaust. luckily the restaurant wasn't very full and we moved ourselves to a different table. 2) the mango momojito definitely wasn't mango, and tasted more like mildly alcoholic sprite with some torn up mint leaves. 3) after she brought out the appetizer, we waited, and i eventually had to get up and ask for cutlery and napkins. 4) the waitress brought out the wrong entree (ordered a noodle dish, she brought out a curry/rice dish). it was still good and she offered to take it back but we didn't want to wait. she must not have understood because 3 minutes later, in the middle of eating it, she tried to take it away again. 5) charged us for the more expensive erroneous dish when the dish we ordered was several dollars cheaper. 6) their decor outside was really hospital-bright fluorescent bulbs. when we asked if it was possible to turn them off (there were other christmas lights on so it wouldn't have been dark), she said yes, but seemed to forget. maybe she didn't understand English well, but her manager also didn't bother to talk to us when we asked to talk to him about the wrong charge on the bill. he was definitely looking at us and seemed to be laughing. so, i didn't feel bad about not tipping. never going there again.

best thai in the neighborhood. i've been ordering from here for 5 years, and they have never messed up my order, they're always fast, the food is delicious, and the menu has a million things on it to choose from. The spring rolls are amazing; the mango salad is always fresh; the pad thai is never dry; the green curry is super flavorful and perfectly spicy...i could go on and on. and the delivery guys must have wings, because they show up at my door about ten minutes after I order. it's also great value -- they could charge double and i'd still order from here once a week. highly recommend to anyone looking for Thai in Park Slope/Prospect Heights

I live in Crown Heights and wanted Thai, so Mango Thai was one of the closest options and also well-reviewed. It's a pretty small place, so cozy, but still nice. The restaurant wasn't full, but apparently very busy with takeout orders. The one waitress saw me when I walked in and promptly seated me, even though she was hastily running around in several different directions. It took at least ten to fifteen minutes before she returned with water and an apology for the delay and took my order. The food didn't take too long to come out. It was extremely good and I had things to do to occupy my time during the wait. After I finished eating, it took a while before she returned to have my leftovers packaged. The sole source of my frustration during this experience was the amount of waiting. The place obviously gets a lot of take-out and delivery orders. While there were only about five other tables to attend to, the one waitress was clearly too overwhelmed to really provide attentive service. It wasn't that she didn't try; just that she was too busy, I think. Overall, it was a good experience and I will more than likely return for another order of Mango Salad and Pineapple Curry. If you lean on the thirsty side, bring your own water.

There are several good Thai places in the area, but MANGO is so good and so cheap that we never bother to go anywhere else. Literally everything we've ever ordered (which is almost everything on the menu) is great.
