Mango Tango at Siam Square (Thailand, Bangkok)

Mango Tango is a small dessert shop which specialises in mango desserts (pudding, beverage, ice cream and the Thai classic Mango Stick Rice) tucked away at a corner of Siam Square Soi 5. If you are a fan of Mango or Mango Sticky Rice, look no further. Mango Tango serves the best Mango Sticky Rice! Coming from someone who does not fancy having Mango in Singapore, I think even I can be surprised at myself sometimes. Mango Tango also serves other desserts such as Kiwi, Strawberry, Watermelon and Apple, but the bulk of it's offerings are about Mango. Even if you are someone who does not fancy Mango, it is advisable to give Mango Tango a try.

Mango Tango is located next to Hotel Novotel, and is opposite two well-known restaurants; Som Tam Nua (Winner of CNNGo Best Eats in 2010) and Ban Khun Mae! In the above photo, Ban Khun Mae is just across the road. All you need to do is to cross the zebra crossing as shown in the reflection of the photo and that's Ban Khun Mae. 
Som Tam Nua
Som Tam Nua is even nearer, literally 5 seconds away (directly oppsoite Mango Tango - separated by the walkway).
Mango Tango at Siam Square is a tiny with a seating capacity of less than 20. As such, they have several seats outside where customers can sit while queuing. The good news is that the turnover is fast. 

The environment and decoration in Mango Tango is all about mangoes. In Mango Tango, the king of fruits is Durian Mango! 
Mango Tango's Menu with its prices stated clearly was in the shape of a Mango! 
Mango Fruit Swing 55 Baht (S$2.30)
The Mango Fruit Swing 55 Baht (S$2.30) was refreshing. It was full of rich in (mango) flavour. It was not diluted. The freshness of the mango and the smoothness of this drink transformed something ordinary into something extra-ordinary!
Mango Sticky Rice 2 Fresh Mango 120 Baht (S$5)
Mango Sticky Rice 2 Fresh Mango 120 Baht (S$5)
Mango Sticky Rice 2 Fresh Mango 120 Baht (S$5) consisted of two Mangoes with two scoops of Sticky (glutinous) Rice in the middle. It was obvious that they had taken numerous efforts in the presentation style of this dessert. The two scoops of Sticky Rice were served on banana leave while the two Mangoes were presented in such a unique way that they reminded me of the Esplanade.

The Sticky Rice was superbly executed. The rice was warm, soft, moist and aromatic. The perfectly concocted coconut milk drizzled over the sticky rice made a whole world of difference to the taste. It was so good that it can be eaten alone! Brilliant! The Mangoes were top notch too. Fresh, soft, smooth and sweet without any of the fibrous flesh. Irresitable! This is the best Mango Sticky Rice I have ever had!
Mango Tango + Extra Sticky Rice 145 Baht (S$6.05)
The Mango Tango + Extra Sticky Rice 145 Baht (S$6.05) consisted of Mango, Sticky Rice, Mango Pudding and Mango ice cream. The Mango and Sticky Rice stole the limelight from the other items.

Mango Tango is a die die must try! Their Mango Sticky Rice is the best we had and its worth every single Dollar baht!

Besides Siam Square, Mango Tango can be found at three other locations:
1) JJ Market (Chatuchak Weekend Market): Section 3, door 26th close to Soi 42/3
2) K-Village: B116, 1st floor
3) Chiangmai: Nimmanhaemin Soi 11
Next to this Mango Tango outlet is another gem. This no frills shop with no signboard did not have a name and sold just snacks in takeaway boxes.
Their products include such a pandan kuih, sticky rice, pancake, pancake roll and egg cake which are freshly made on the spot.
If you are attempting to read the words, its upside down =P
The takeaway box.
The Pandan Kuih (Kueh) was very good (ho chiak)! It was sweet and rich in pandan flavour. Texture wise, it was soft and chewy on one side while the other side had a cake/sponge like texture.We also ordered the Sticky Rice Cake, which looked like pancakes. Among the two, the Pandan Kuih was our favourite.

  1. Missed out on this outlet while I was here. Still tried mango sticky rice from the hotel and the streets, the ever popular dessert in Thailand and found almost anywhere too.

  2. Mango Tangy reminds me of 许溜山 in HK. Have you tried? Too bad they couldn't make here in SG :<

    1. Yes, tried before in HK. They have opened in Malaysia (JB) too.

  3. I am very disappointed by the service at Mango Tango Siam Square. I was insulted by one of the waiter there because I ordered 3 dishes for 4 persons. I would have understood if he talked to me in a nice way. But this waiter is just so rude and asked me to leave their stall. VERY DISAPPOINTED !

    1. Hi Ivana Agustin
      I am surprised to hear this as I ordered 3 dishes (including the drink) for 5 person. The staff should not have asked any customers to leave their stall. That is the worst service possible after all customers are the one who made Mango Tango famous and enjoying such a brisk business

  4. ปกติเป็นลูกค้าประจำที่ร้าน Mango Tango สยามค่ะ พอดีเพิ่งเห็นว่าเปิดสาขาใหม่ที่Asiatique เลยว่าจะอุดหนุนซักหน่อย ไปกับเพื่อนอีก 5 คน สั่งเมนูประจำ3อย่าง
    Mango Tango
    Mango Aloha
    Mango Salsa
    2เมนูเเรกอร่อยเหมือนเดิมค่ะ เเต่เมนูที่3 mango Salsa ที่มีพุดดิ้งในน้ำปั่นมะม่วง น้ำปั่นมะม่วงกลิ่นเน่ามากค่ะ เหมือนเอามะม่วงเสียมาปั่นให้กิน ปกติเป็นคนขี้เกรงใจมากๆ ตอนเเรกคิดว่าปากตัวเองมีปัญหา เลยให้เพื่อนชิมกันรอบวง สรุปเป็นเสียงเดียวกันว่าเสียยยยยจริงๆ เลยบอกพนักงานว่าเสีย พนักงานไม่สนใจ เลยเรียกผู้จัดการมา เราก็บอกผู้จัดการดีๆว่ารู้สึกว่ามะม่วงที่เอามาปั่นให้มันเสียค่ะ เจ้เเกทำหน้าไม่พอใจ เเกยังไม่ทันชิมหรือดมก็รีบบอกว่ามะม่วงมี่ร้านไม่เสียค่ะ เราเลยบอกให้ลองดมดูค่ะ กลิ่นมันเหม็นเปรี้ยวเเบบเน่าๆ เจ้เเกดมเเล้วทำหน้างง เเล้วบอกว่า นี้กลิ่นมะม่วงสดค่ะ !!! นี้พวกน้องยังไม่ชินกะรสชาติรึเปล่าค่ะ! โอ้คุณพระเจ้เเกทำเรางงฝุดๆๆ เจ้เเกคงคิดว่าเราไม่เคยกินมะม่วง เราเลยบอกว่า เราเป็นลูกค้าประจำที่สยามค่ะ กินบ่อยมากเเละกินออกว่าอะไรเสียไม่เสีย เจ้เเกก็ยังยื่นยันว่านี้คือกลิ่นมะม่วงสด (รสชาติมะม่วงที่ร้านจะต้องเหม็นเปรี้ยวเเบบนี้รึ??) ซ็อกฝุดๆ
    ถ้วยหนึ่งก็ 95 บาท ก็ไม่ถูกนะค่ะ เเค่ขอโทษซักคำที่เอาของเสียมาขายก็ไม่มี
    ผิดหวังมากค่ะ รับไม่ได้ค่ะที่ผู้จัดการร้านนี้เอามะม่วงเสียมาปั่นให้กินเเล้วบอกว่าเป็นรสชาติของมะม่วงสด พูดคำเดียวจะไม่ไปกินร้านนี้อีกเลยค่ะ
    ปล ขนาดร้านไอติมswensen's ตักไอติมผิดรสมาให้ยังรีบขอโทษเเล้วรีบตักไอติมลูกใหม่มาให้เลย
    สงสัยผู้จัดการที่ร้าน mango tango asiatique ต้องไปอบรมใหม่ซะเเล้วเพราะการที่เจ้เเกเเก้ปัญหาเเบบนี้ทำให้ทางร้านเสียลูกค้าอย่างน้อย6คนเเล้วค่ะ
    I'm a regular customer at Mango Tango Siam square branch. Today with 5 other friends we just saw a new branch opened at Asiatique, so without hesitation we ordered our 3 favorite menu Mango Tango, Mango Aloha and mango Salsa. The first 2 menu was good as usual but mango salsa which is mango pudding in mango sauce, the mango sauce tasted rotten. It tasted disgusting so we called the manager to inform her politely that probably a rotten mango was used to make the mango sauce. Without even a look at the bowl, the manager said that the mango is not rotten. We told her we are a regular at the other branch at siam and explained that 6 of us tasted and agreed that the mango sauce tasted rotten. We insisted the manager to smell the mango salsa. After she smelled the mango sauce she replied that this smell is the smell of "fresh mango" and probably we are not used to this taste. I was so shocked by her explanation!! I am a mango lover and she said that my taste buds can't separate between good and rotten taste??
    We are very disappointed by this level of service. 95 baht per bowl is not cheap in thailand. Selling rotten mango sauce without an apology and blaming our taste buds that the rotten taste is actually the taste of 'fresh mango'
    Is this what a manager should react on customer's complaints? Well, today this shop already lose at least 6 customers because we will never eat there again!!

    1. the problem with expanding too fast; service quality and quality control of the food.

      To be fair, this is one side of the story. I suggest that you write in to them and let them investigate.
