We arrived at the restaurant and they sat us in a "family style" table with other patrons that we did not know. We informed the waiter that we had a reservation and he did not understand or heard. He brought us menus and left for several minutes. No water was delivered or offered to order drinks. He left us and did not returned. We decided to leave.

The woman, maybe the owner, was screaming at her employees in Thai for half the time we were there. People got up and left their tables. While she was screaming at them in the back, no one was on the floor to help seat people. So people were lined up in the front waiting to be seated as she screamed at everyone else in the back. Meanwhile for those like myself who were already seated, it was hard to enjoy our dinner with the constant ear piercing yelling coming from behind me. Her voice was so loud and piercing. I felt uncomfortable and really awkward so we rushed our dinner and got out of there which was really unfortunate. The food was good but probably won't be back

We satisfy our Thai food cravings by dining here on a regular basis. The menu choices are great. Try the papaya salad (order it spicy), chicken satay was tender too. Great wine list!

This was our first visit & it was very good. We had a group of 6 & started with the pot stickers & chicken satay & both were very tasty. My husband & I shared a special-of-the-day curry noodle dish & though it wasn't at all spicy, it was flavorful & very good. The service was slow even though it was a tiny place but it didn't spoil the evening.

The restaurant honored our Open Table reservation and had our table waiting despite a full house on Saturday evening. Fantastic, swift service and truly delicious food. What a treat!

My kiddos & I love Mango on Main. My son & I had a special date just the two of us & they made a special plate for him because the dish he usually orders was not on special. He loved it!!! They are so great!!

Best green curry ever! Not toooo spicy due to special recipe - all made from scratch. Asian eggplant w/seafood is not to be missed. Great food, inviting atmosphere and warm hospitality from owner and wife rounds out a wonderful dining experience.

A welcome opportunity in Napa town -- tastefully decorated, pleasant service, varied menu and very good food preparation. Unlike its prior location, the current one offers a more upscale experience in location, decor and -- prices. I believe we had 2 appetizers, soup for 2, salad for 2 and one entree split between us (and one Thai ice tea) for $72. Not a high price for Napa, and overall recommended.

Mango has always been one of our go-to favorites in downtown Napa. Refined Thai cuisine, very fresh ingredients, friendly and attentive (family) staff, pleasant dining room, and a good value. Favorites are the pot stickers, lemongrass soup, double drunkin shrimp and the curries. The wine list is small but carefully selected. Located away from the more frenetic downtown scene, but in easy walking distance.

This restaurant had great reviews and since we love Thai food, we decided to give it a try. As an appetizer, we had the Miengkum (8 elements wrap). We had not had it since we were in Thailand and were so happy to enjoy it again. The pretty umbrellas from Chiang Mai hanging from the ceiling were a nice touch. We had the Chicken cha cha and the shrimp and eggplant, which we ordered medium spicy. Being accustomed to Thai food, it was not spicy enough. However, they brought some spices to our table that made it just perfect. The service was excellent and we were treated very nicely. Also, they offer brown rice, which is unusual in a Thai restaurant. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I walked in and there was only one man sitting at the front table by the window. The man waiter most likely owner was on the phone. He got to us and took I and my daughter to our table without saying nothing. He places are menus down and leaves. When I open the menu it is dirty with drippings of soy sauce all over it. Very distasteful I would say. I and my daughter finally decide what we want and we wait and wait and wait. Until I said we were ready to order. I order the Pot Stickers, Micronesia Rolls, Coconut Soup with Tofu, Indeed Pad Thai, and a Thai Ice Tea.
The Micronesia rolls tasted not made in house were deep fried and very greasy, Pot Stickers outsides were burnt, dried and very tasteless. Lucky for the soy sauce to add some flavors. Coconut Soup with Tofu was the ok, however way too salty. Indeed Pad Thai was mushy and very sweet, left an awful after taste in my mouth. The Thai Tea I returned. It was like drinking a sugar block with some weird looking red dye with cream. I order the regular tea and it tasted weird too worn some strange grape taste to it.
We waited forever for the bill and that was the only time owner waiter spoke to us. This place left a strange vibe in my mouth and I won't be going back. I ran next door to get a Ben and Jerry's ice cream to get the taste out of my mouth.
Oh and the other waiter peeling string beans and going to answer phone. Never ever did I see him wash his hands. There are too many good places in Napa and I cannot understand the good reviews for this place. People must have bad pallets and would eat dog food.

My reservations about the restaurant has to do with the service. We were a group of five adults.

First, we had to wait 20 minutes after arriving to get seated. Then, we waited after we were seated only to see other patrons who arrived after us get served before us by our server. Then, several minutes after the server finally took our order -- he brought me the wrong meal!

It was very upsetting that I had to wait for my meal, after the rest of the party was ready to eat. They didn't even apologize!

I cannot recommend them, and will not go back there.

This is a great little find a little farther along Main St. in Napa. The food was really good, and the service was the perfect balance of attentive, but not intrusive. The place was packed during mid-week, and I always take that as a good sign....

There was some confusion when we arrived, as they did not have our name attributing it to some issues with the place changing its name and some missed info. So, we had to wait about 20 minutes, but it was fine.

The food was very good. Not your typical Thai food that you see everywhere. Good wine list, too.

Once we settled in, the service was good.

I would go back and would recommend to friends.

If you are looking for a nice, casual restaurant to dine that's not going to cost the typical fine dining prices than look no further. Mango on Main offers fresh, great tasting dishes. Everything on the menu is very good. Great place to share dishes. As a local of downtown Napa, the hidden gem of the valley.

Their service was phenomenal, and they were very accommodating. We showed up half an hour early for an 8 o'clock reservation, and we were seated right away. My boyfriend felt he didn't get enough seafood in his dish, so brought him a small bowl of four extra prawns on the house. However, as a vegetarian, I found their already-small menu very limiting, especially for a restaurant claiming to be vegetarian friendly! I had two options for entrées. What I did get lost, though (the tofu curry), was delicious.

We had not been here before and thought it was unpretentious compared to the restaurant next door. We thought we can always go next door if we don't like it. We liked it. This is the kind of place where locals and strangers end up talking to each other. The owner serves the tables and is friendly and helpful. the food is good but not exceptional, but neither are the prices. good value for the price. Atmosphere is casual, relaxed and fun. Tables are pretty close to each other and the noise levels are a little high, probably because everyone is talking to each other. We liked it and would go back.
