My wife and I visited this restaurant the week it opened, and loved it so much that we went back twice more the same week! We still go at least once a month, and frequently get take-out if we can't both get there for some reason.

Stumbled across Big Mango on the way to the landromat, and was happily surprised. <br> Exceptionally good tasting food -- very good balance of spices and ingredients, and the ambiance of the restaurant is excellent: quiet flute music, great art. Perfect place to take a first date that you actually want to talk to. <br> Service is attentive w/o being obnoxious, but does have a small language barrier, so patiently pointing to what you want will win every time (some French or Vietnamese will help if you know it). <br> Biggest downside: portions are sized for small Thai people. It's beautiful presentation, but a little more volume would be a welcome addition.
