Mango Cafe

By on April 29, 2010


Soft lights and exotic music greet you as you enter Mango Café.  Various shades of brown and green add to the overall relaxed, outdoorsy atmosphere that this in-mall café presents.  In the indoor terrace, hanging vines wrapped around wooden rails surround you as you sit in wicker chairs by picnic-like tables.  In this setting, you can’t help but be taken away.  This is certainly a place made for relaxation.  

In addition to an intensely relaxing atmosphere, Mango Café offers a diverse menu (in both English and Japanese) that presents customers with Asian fusion-style dishes, complete with mildly-spiced Thai curries, pastas, and salads.  Although most options are Thai-influenced, there are also a few Singaporean dishes, as well as Italian.  The menu offers no specific dishes for children, but the restaurant and many of the dishes are kid-friendly, particularly the desserts – Mango Café’s specialty.  

An entire page in the menu is dedicated to waffles, and for a good reason: they are delicious and a must-try.  These delectable banana waffles are served warm and come with your choice of fresh mango and whipped cream topping.  This is a wonderful choice to indulge in on your own or to share with a friend.  Waffles range in price from ¥750 to ¥830; the incredibly fresh imported mango alone is worth the price!  (If you’re looking for a more Asian treat, try the coconut ice cream.)  

Although most of the dishes offered at Mango Café include either chicken or seafood, there are a few vegetarian options such as a Spaghetti Peperoncino, complete with water spinach and dried tomato, and a Bagna Cauda roasted vegetable salad with garlic dip.  For other meat-inclusive dishes, it is possible to have the meat removed from some of them – if you ask nicely.  As a side note, make sure you try the popcorn seasoned with spicy black pepper. Yum!  

For a full meal at Mango Café (including a drink, salad, and entrée) you can expect to pay around ¥3,000 per person, but if you’re just stopping in for tea time, half of that amount should suffice.  Fancy a quick and reasonably-priced exotic getaway? Go Mango!

Mango Café is open 11am-11pm, daily.
