My fiancee and I recently had a tasting with Thao as we were looking to secure a caterer for our upcoming wedding. We were thoroughly impressed by the dishes she prepared, her personality, and passion for the job...we hired her on the spot. Extremely knowledgable, answered questions perfectly, and she has been a pleasure to work with. Green Mangos was the 4th caterer we met with; the food was head and shoulders above the rest and represented excellent value for money.
Fine Dining at Home – We just attended a private Valentine's 6 course tasting menu dinner catered by Green Mangos, Chef Thao. Dishes ranged fron Brie de Francais en Feuillete, Tuna tartare, Poached lobster, and Seared shrimp with ginger syrup and butternut squash puree. This is fine dining at it's best! My husband and I skipped our dinner at Oceanaire, thinking we would be disappointed. The experience more than exceeded our expectation! The staff was very friendly and professional. The food was phenomenal! I've never tasted anything like the poached lobster with garlic ginger sauce and pea shoots. If you're looking to woo your guests for a wedding, private party, this is the company to hire!
We recently hired Green Mangos to cater our company holiday party (for 85 people) - which was held in my home. We spent a lot of time on menu options, and the results were fantastic. They made sure that my staff had a great time! The food was "remarkable" in the true sense of the word - our employees were talking about it for days after the party. The Green Mangos team came to our house about 3 hours before the party, did all the setup, cooked fresh food on-site, served, tended the bar, and made absolutely certain that everyone had a great time. As the host, I pretty much just had to show up... but one of the best things was that when they left, my kitchen was cleaner than when they arrived! I honestly can't recommend Thao, Tom and their wonderful staff enough!
I hired Thao and Green Mangos Catering for my daughter's wedding. When I asked my daughter and son in law what ONE thing did they each really want at their wedding, my son in law said, "Great food." Having tasted Thao's food at several different events, I knew she was the right caterer to hire for the wedding. She did NOT disaapoint us. The food was absolutely fantastic. The guests were pleased; the bride and groom were thrilled and I was happy. The way she blends herbs and spices is amazing. It truly is a treat to eat food prepared by Thao and her Green Mango Catering staff.
My husband and I had Green Mangos do the food for our wedding, and everything was phenomenal. The initial tasting was cute and well-planned, and the wedding food planning was so easy. Thao was an absolute pleasure to work with and she attended to every detail and special request, including vegan meals and kids meals. We had a plated dinner at the wedding, as well as butler-passed appetizers, a non-alcoholic beverage bar, and a root beer float bar. The service was exceptional, all of the servers were friendly, helpful, and appropriate. The food was excellent, and they did a great job on the root beer floats, which were really a hit. We could not have made a better choice. Thank you!
My husband & I recently hosted a party for 50 people in our home and hired Green Mangos Catering to handle the food and service.
We felt very well taken care of from the time Thao and her staff arrived at our home... They were prompt, courteous, and willing to do whatever we needed to make our evening special.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic food that was prepared. Their friendly & attentive staff worked throughout the evening making sure every detail was being taken care of for us..
We would highly recommend Green Mangos catering with chef Thao Moore & her staff to anyone looking for the freshest food available coupled with fantastic service!
Green Mangos Catering is wonderful! I would highly recommend them for your wedding day catering or events. Thao and the entire staff are so friendly and professional. They make sure everything goes as planned from start to finish, without flaws. Their menu options are amazing!
Thao and her husband Tom are absolutely phenomenal!! We had Green Mangos do our catering at the James J. Hill Reference Library for our July 20th wedding. I received and am still receiving compliments of how amazing the food was at our reception. I filled out contact information on their website and a couple of hours later Thao contacted me right away.
My fiancé and I were unsure about what we wanted to do for our reception, but from our first meeting Thao helped and guided us through every step of the way! I loved how they were able to create anything that we wanted. I also loved how our food wasn't your typical reception food. I wanted to create a mix of our families heritage we had an Italian Asian fusion buffet with Indonesian Platter (seasonal vegetables, Asian chips, and apples), Jasmine Rice, Shrimp Thai Curry, Linguine Bolognese, and Chili garlic noodles for vegetarians! Everyone that I talked to said that are wedding, reception, and food represented us! That is exactly what we wanted! We didn't want something cookie cutter we wanted us!
Thao, Tom, and Green Mango Staff go above and beyond any expectation my fiancé and I had! Everyone was so professional and organized I could not have asked for a more exceptional catering company! I truly believe that this is one of the best catering companies in the Twin Cities. It was the perfect day with the perfect food!! If we had to do it all over again we wouldn't change a thing!!
I had a wonderful experience with Green Mangos Catering for my wedding at the James. J. Hill Library in St. Paul, MN. I highly recommend them and their food! First, and most importantly I think, I know that guests were so happy with the food they were served. I had so many people come up to me on the day of the wedding and even the next day and tell me how wonderful the food was. Hearing the food was so good was really, really nice.
Second, my husband and I also really loved the food. The day before and day of the wedding were pretty stressful and weren't filled with a lot of well-planned meals. However, eating Green Mangos' food at the wedding reception was fantastic. We were both really happy with just how good the food was - definitely the kind that made you want to get seconds. :)
Third, the Green Mangos staff could not have been more professional and hard working. They helped with setting up the tables, made sure the food was displayed nicely and everything went smoothly during dinner, and did a ton of work with taking everything down at the end of the night. The staff was very nice to everyone and did a perfect job. Thao thought of many things I hadn't and always responded quickly to emails. Her menu was very flexible and she accommodated us throughout the entire wedding planning process. If you want some food recommendations too, try having a mashed potato bar. Our guests loved the pesto cream sauce, the southern pan fried gravy, and the variety of other toppings that Thao displayed nicely.
Anyway, we are extremely happy with the catering job done by Green Mangos. Thao and her staff were excellent and so was the food!
My guests are asking for recipes 2 months after the wedding and they usually state, " your wedding was amazing but your food was out of this world!" We had an exceptional challenge for her as well as we were doing Zimbabwean-American fusion. Thao and her colleagues at Green Mangos Catering were perfect!
