Wonderful service and beautiful and delicious food! Thao and her team made our event wonderful. On your wedding day, you hope to have people who make your day stress free. That's what Green Mangos did for us. I was so busy and Green Mangos made sure the food was ready and service started exactly when it needed to. I had guest coming up to me saying how great the food was. Our hors d'oeuvres reception was fun, yummy and made the event more of a party rather than a sit-down reception. I highly recommend Thao and her team!
Green Mangos Catering dazzles crowds large & small! – I've had the pleasure of experiencing Green Mangos' exceptional food & service more than a few times now, and they always deliver the absolute best by transforming the freshest ingredients into mouth watering art.
While their service is always impeccable-- anticipating every possible need-- the staff at Green Mangos also exudes a relaxed, unpretentious, and friendly charm. I guarantee that they are the best in the biz!
The best wedding ever! – My fiancee and I hired Green Mangos Catering for our reception. The event was literally a work of art. From the impeccable service to the incredible food and beautiful presentation, we couldn't have imagined how well this could have gone! Our guests still rave about the food. The planning was stressful to say the least. We ended up not using our event planner and worked with Chef Thao on all the details. She took care of all the details. The food is still a lingering memory!
Great food, easy to work with – Green Mangoes catered our wedding reception for 100 people last August. She was a delight to work with. We loved her lentil salad, coconut curry vegetables, and chicken and curry kebabs! The food was fresh and delicious, her staff was friendly yet efficient. They even provided labels for the additional dishes that some guests brought. Planning was easy and clear negotiations, and she came ahead of time to plan out the space usage, a great help to us. Clean up was excellent. I’d happily hire Thao again for another event.
Love Green Mangos Catering! – We loved working with chef/owner Thao Moore, her husband/co-owner Tom Moore and their staff at Green Mangos Catering. They went out of their way to make sure our event was a success. Our guests absolutely loved the food and I still get compliments about the event.
Should have called Green Mangos first! – I have to admit, Green Mangos Catering was not the first caterer we called. We randomly called several other caterers for our large corporate event. We were shocked by these other caterers' lack of response and lack of enthusiasm. One caterer was over our budget by almost 50%. Another caterer took a month to respond to our initial call. The third caterer assumed he got the job and when he found out we were still getting other bids, never called us back. We decided to start the whole process over and this time called Green Mangos Catering.
Their professionalism and responsiveness exceeded our expectations. Once we met with the owner, Thao Moore, she immediately put as at ease and took time to answer all of our questions. We decided to go with Green Mangos Catering and never had any regrets. We will use them again without question.
Elegent Private Dining – A great time was had for Valentine's Day Weekend. The Coconut Curry Vegetables were delightfully prepared and full of flavor and paired well with the Castillero del Diablo Wine. The Rack of lamb was prepared well and full of flavor with a nice addition of a cherry preserve reduction.
Amazing food and wonderful service – We hired them for a dessert reception for 375 people. We had a pretty small menu- cake, eclaires, mini cheesecakes and coffee and punch. It was all incredible. Chocolate cake with buttercream icing as well as Vanilla cake with buttercream. They were both to-die-for. Some vaniall cakes are just that, plain, but this was amazing. Thao and her group were great to work with and totally on the ball. Highly recommended.
Unique Wine Tasting Experience – Green Mangoes Catering not only creates an amazing culinary experience but offers wine classes as well. I have had the pleasure of attending two classes with Chef Thao and both classes were educational and allowed participants to see what food types pair with certain types of wine.
Chef Thao pairs several small servings of food to try with each wine. Experimenting with different flavors shows what foods work well with each type of wine and when you find a good match, it really enhances both the food and the wine being served. Sampling food that is sweet, salty and spicy adds a new dimension to traditional wine tasting that one does not typically get to experience and lends itself to actually experience what the wine would taste like with a meal.
Chef Thao has extensive knowledge of wine and is able to convey the essence and get the group actively engaged in the conversation. I would highly recommend using Green Mangoes Catering not only for their catering but also for wine education.
Outstanding Service & Delicious Food – Green Mangos Catering catered my wedding reception for over 200 guests in July of 2010. The service was absolutely outstanding. For example, the owner personally brought drinks to my husband and me so we did not have to wait in line at the bar. The food was heavenly, and many of our guests commented on how upscale, delicious, and flavorful the dishes were... Not your typical wedding meal! Thao was a joy to work with from start to finish. She understood that taste, presentation, and budget were all key factors when putting this meal together. I rarely consider any vendor deserving of a perfect 5 star rating, but Green Mangos delivered exactly that for me.
