It's a small restaurant with good food so it's often very busy. The restaurant like many other businesses in high rent neighborhoods allocates almost all available space to the "productive" activities (i.e. waiting area is nonexistent). Normally I'd say that's a problem but waiters in Sweet Mango so gamely speed around and smile so much it's just fun to watch... More

The food was great. They have more options on their in-restaurant menu than the online menu. Prices are approx $10-$15 for most dishes. The hostess and servers were all very friendly. The place was quite crowded when we got there at approx 7:45pm on a Saturday. Wait time turned out to be less than we were told. Be sure to... More

If you're looking for innovative and unusual or intriguing Chinese dishes, this wouldn't be the place. But if you're looking for a family-friendly neighborhood joint that has a handful of dishes from Thailand and Burma, plus roti prata, well then this might be the place. You'll find standard chow mein, lemon chicken, wonton soup and garden variety Pad Thai, but... More

I visited this restaurant on a Sunday night @ 8.30 pm. The closing time is 9.30pm. We were not greeted by the staffs and told they close the kitchen by 9 pm. The food we ordered were delivered in a couple of mins. The chicken satay was uncooked. The roti, curry and the noodles were half cooked. The house keeping... More

I have actually been a customer of Sweet Mango since the beginning! I've known the owner (Cindy) since she was a server at Taiwan just down the street, and I was thrilled at how delicious and unique the food at her restaurant is. It has all of the great typical Chinese food, but it also has Thai food and BURMESE... More

Sweet Mango has some of the best Chinese food I have ever tasted. The owner is attentive to make sure you are happy with your choices. It is smallish with a cozy ambience. There is good variety. When I go to San Jose, I always make it a point to eat at Sweet Mango.

The food here is very good and tasty. We tried a few different items like Kung Pao, Fried rice, Eggplant curry and Roti prata and all items were good. The service was ok and we had to wait really long for the food although the restaurant was not very crowded. They mentioned that they got a lot of To-go orders... More

Burmese is a mix of what we call Chinese and Thai foods. Wonderful food, great service. We go at least once a month.

Yes, one of the best I have been to. Fabulous Asian restaurant with great flavors of China, Thailand and Burma. Run by husband and wife team. It is a smaller place but tables are comfortable and decoration is appropriate. The food is outstanding. Many dishes. My favorite are the pad thai and the coconut curry chicken. Simply scrumptious. Service is... More
