Address: Siam Square Soi 5.
Opening hours: 11:30 am to 10:00 pm
Simply go to Google Map and enter “Mango Tango Bangkok” and you will get the actual location. It is only a couple of minutes walk from Siam Station.
This place was recommended by my friend who happened to wander into this dessert place in Bangkok. Mango Tango, as the name suggest, they specialize in mango dessert. I visited their branch at Siam Square Soi 5 for the second time as I was bringing another friend to try, and it’s already queuing before the shop opens at 11.30am.
There is this stall just beside Mango Tango that sells quite decent Thai Pandan pastries. I will mention more on this stall after the Conclusion section of Mango Tango.
The one thing that I don’t like about this place is they have a rule of each person must order an individual dessert before you are allow a seat. This branch can only house only about twenty diners at a time.
They do have branch at other places. Visit their official website for more information.
Signature Mango Tango with Sticky Rice – 145 baht
This platter is like the McDonald’s big breakfast of Tango Mango where you get to sample everything – fresh mango, mango ice cream, mango pudding and their sticky rice. For both times, the mangoes are really fresh and sweet. Oh by the way, the mango sticky rice is very so-so. Do consider if you want to order it. I ordered cus I thought it will make the photo looks more complete and nicer. LOL.
Mango Salsa – 85 baht
Mango Salsa is actually Mango pudding in fresh mango juice. The mango and pudding taste exactly like the Mango Tango with Sticky Rice dish. The main difference is the generous smooth fresh mango juice topped over the pudding less the ice-cream.
Mango Aloha – 65 baht
This is a cheaper version that only cost less than S$3.00. It’s diced Mango in Milk Sago with less-generous portion of fresh Mango Juice.
I think the selling point of Mango Tango is the eatery is really clean, and apart from their fresh juicy mango, the variety of mango desserts may also be the reason for the good crowd. I thought their food is actually rather well done although part of the reason for the long queue might be due to the small seating capacity in the restaurant. Their pricing is also very decent for their quality mango.
In my opinion, Mango Tango dishes lack a wow factor. I am only saying this because i am comparing this with a Hong Kong Dessert Xu Liu Shan (许留山). Not sure if you had heard about it but Xu Liu Shan sells dessert that is very very similar to Mango Tango, but at a slightly higher price, but there is almost no queue in Hong Kong.
As such, queuing for this at Mango Tango makes me feel like it’s not super worth it. But of course i am not at Hong Kong, so Mango Tango is good by itself in Bangkok.
Apart from the waiting time, i’m actually OK to pop by in the future. But if the queue is really long, then i probably get myself something else, like Afteryou Dessert at Siam Paragon or Mont Nom Sod at MBK.
Kanom Krok Bai Toey (Pandan Kueh) beside Mango Tango
Opening hour: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
While i was waiting in the queue at Mango Tango, i was attracted by this simple-looking stall that is selling something like Pandan Pancake in flower shape.
All cakes are freshly made on the spot and the piping hot pastry gives off a very aromatic Pandan taste. I remember it’s about 30 baht for a box of eight. Mixture of different flavors is possible. Cheap and good!
