I found a glass piece in the food and complained. Instead of apologizing they behaved in a rude way asking whether I am sure it came from the food. The waiter took the glass piece and rushed into the kitchen and did not come outside for a few minutes. After sometime he came back and handed over the bill for the food. They did not even apologize for the mistake.

We had to leave the place after paying the money.
Be careful with the food here.

The 1st time I found a long blond hair, and I have short black hair, in my hot soup and did not create a scene nor did I bring it to the mgr's attention and figured a hair was not that bad to warrant a complaint. The 2nd time, as if I was out of my rockers to go there again, I found a fried r*ach in my chicken padthai noodles. I brought it to the mgr's attention and he was very apologetic. Let me tell you that they were not surprised by the vermin in my food. The service is somewhat slow. And no way in hell I'm going to this place a 3rd time, lest I'll choke on ratp*is*n! In this case 3rd time is not a charm and I'm not taking a risk with my life. However, in all fairness, even the best 5 star restaurants have accidents, debris, or crrrap in their food. I have pity and will not call the Health Dept on these guys and I hope no one experiences what I experienced. Bon Apetit! :)

Just had lunch there and had a horrible experience. They had the restaurant door open thr' which wind was blowing in. We felt cold whole of an hour sitting there. When we told them to close the door the guy says ' Oh! if I close the door, I have to turn the A/C on'. When we asked he coldly said that 'there is no other place' just left our table saying that 'U guys decide, I have to take the orders from others'. Little did we realize that time that he was asking us to decide on continuing our lunch there!!!!! Then arrived our main course before our appetizer. When asked we got a rude answer 'Oh! You have to wait. Finally we waited for 15 mins after finishing our lunch and the check didn't arrive, we had to ask for it. Very very unfriendly and rude behaviour. Haven't seen such an attitude anywhere else.

A good indication of a good lunch spot is how they handle take out orders. Do they treat you differently? Do they give preference to their dine in customers? Is it easy to order, and how long is the turn-around time? In an area filled with office buildings, this place handled it well. I just walked in and ordered off their paper menu right at the front, and was greeted promptly during the height of lunch hour. They took my order after giving me a few moments to peruse the menu (he went away to give me some space), and afterwards, i went out to deposit money into the bank next door. By the time I came back, it was ready. I ordered the Ginger Chicken, and it was piping hot and tasty! One nice touch is they put it in foil within the box so it would stay hot, and to prevent spillage.

The decor is descent, but the service is one of a kind if you want poor service. Our experience:

1. Still looking at the menu, they ask if we are ready to order.
2. Rude tone and attitude from staff when ordering.
3. Lunch speical states it will come with soup.
4. Plates arrive no soup.
5. Request soup 2 times. Told it is coming.
6. 3rd request for soup, told they are out of soup. Why didn't they tell us that the first time? Requested alternative. Told in a very rude manner, no substitution for soup. No apology of any kind.
7. As we are eating, they ask if we are done.
8. When we are done, no one came by to give the bill. We had to get up to pay.
9. Decided not to leave a tip.
10. Staff member had the audacity to chase us outside and confronted us for not leaving a tip.
11. We explained our experience, and another staff member came out.
12. They still tried to ask for a tip. And stated we don't know who promised you soup. There are only 5 people there!
13. We felt they were holding us there.
14. I indicated that you cannot hold us here. They agreed. And they tried one more time asking for a tip since they felt there was service, after we explained our experience.

This is my worst experience in a restaurant of any kind and my only time writting a poor reveiw. It was actually kind of scary. If you can avoid this place, I strong recommend you do! There are many other options in the plaza they are located in.

Mango Bay has become a go-to lunch spot for our office. The restaurant space is relatively small, but well designed to fit a large number of people and not be so noisy to interrupt conversation. The mango chicken has been my lunch special of choice.

I just started working in Redwood Shores and am so happy to find such a nice place for lunch near by! There is a really good selection of lunch entrees (mango chicken, various curry dishes, noodles, etc.) that come with soup and rice at very reasonable prices. Even though the restaurant was packed during the lunch hour (good sign!), I could still have a nice conversation with my lunchmate without having to yell. I'm definitely going back to try out the many other items on the menu!

PROS: Good food at great prices -- what more could you want?
CONS:
