Mango on Main first opened in Napa in 2009 as Mini Mango Thai bistro, and has remained a hot spot for diners craving affordable Thai food focusing on recipes from chef-owner’s mother and grandmother. Mango on Main offers Bangkok street food and Southeast Asian cuisine for lunch and dinner paired with wines, beers, sake . All our sauces, pastes and relishes are made in-house, with recipes combining traditional Thai dishes with contemporary tastes. The casual, family-style dining concept is enormously appealing, offering you the chance to try dishes like Honey BBQ Pork, Indochine corn fritter, oven roasted Shitake roll, Kabocha Red Curry, Pad Thai, Jade curry noodles, Northern Thai curry noodles, Oriental Salmon and Asian Eggplant Seafood all in one meal!

I have a group of friends who get together once a month for a dinner downtown. This is our “favorite” venue! The food is always fresh & excellent and the service is terrific!
We LOVE Mango on Main! Try it..you’ll LOVE it too!

Min-Mango on Main is our go-to neighborhood restaurant for fresh, creative, reasonably-priced food in a friendly setting. It's a locals favorite! Don't let too many of the tourists know about it!

We booked a reservation for Mango for our first night in Napa. We drove there paid for parking only to find it had gone out of business. Pitch dark and closed up. We had nowhere in that area to eat that night as all restaurants required a reservation. This was upsetting to us that we were able to book a table through open table for a restaurant that is closed down.

Food was good. Service ok. We had made a reservation but had to sit at a table with another couple because they obviously didn’t hold reservations. It was our anniversary so that put a damper on the dinner

My spouse loves Thai and considers herself an expert and this ranked as one of the best we've had. 2 different pot stickers/dumplings were phenomenal; my pork dish (entree) has incredible flavors; price point was excellent; will return

Overall, I can't help but summarize my wife and I's experience as completely disappointing. After being seated, my wife and I were offered water and then ignored for 15 minutes - even as we tried to signal one of the employees that we were ready to order. We ordered an appetizer and 2 simple entrees and then proceed to wait 30+ minutes for our food to arrive, except we never received the appetizer. We notified the server and he said that they would handle it immediately... the problem is that it was never handled at all. We finished our entree's and were delivered the bill, which included the appetizer that we never received. We again notified our server, who promptly agreed, apologized, and corrected the bill - which we signed and still tipped (even though the service received was very poor). At the time of writing this email, I can now confirm that they either illegally changed the tip amount that I offered or charged my credit card to include the appetizer that we never received ($10+). The food we did receive tasted great and was a phenomenal value for the area. Up until confirming that they had overcharged my card for the wrong amount, I had chalked up the atrocious service we received as an anomaly and was not going to leave a negative review as I felt it may not be completely justified - people make mistakes or have an off night. However, now I just feel like I was scammed.

The restaurant is a reasonably priced restaurant amid $75 steak restaurants. The food is good and has nice range of That dishes. Beer and wine only. The dining plates are very small. Service is acceptable with waiter sometimes hard to get a hold of. Would return

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

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.
