Mango Chilli is a Thai restaurant with a big heart. It was launched in April at Nexus Bangsar South City which was previously known as Kampung Kerinchi. The restaurant’s concept is profit company but instead of practising a profit expansion, they exercise a culture of profit optimisation. Mr Ronald, owner of Mango Chilli aims to feed a million children a year from his business. He specifically employs young teenagers, uneducated youths who are unable to qualify for proper jobs. He takes them in and teaches them work ethics in his restaurant.
The décor and interior design pose a fervent art of creativity and authenticity where certain areas resemble Thai culture. There are simple small indoor plants and a couple of silver elephants placed inside the restaurant. The setting of the restaurant gives a relaxing and calm atmosphere to the environment. There is zinc shutter as part of the welcoming setting. Simple wooden furniture is furnished neatly. The waiters and waitress are dressed in what appears to be a traditional Thai clothing. A bright red and yellow ‘tuk-tuk’ (Thai taxi) are placed outside of the restaurant as an attractive décor, attracting little children.
Mango Chilli serves only authentic Thai cuisine to their customers. Their signature Beef Noodles is a popular dish among the customers. Other mains such as the green curry chicken, green curry fried rice with chicken skewers and egg and their Pad Thai chicken are also a must try. Aside from the good Thai food, Mango Chilli also serves their signature lemongrass pandan; plus, this particular drink is free flow so you can have as many glasses as you want. As for desserts, the Red Ruby Water Chestnut and the Panacotta are usually ordered by customers because of its refreshing fruity taste.
With every meal purchased, a meal will be given to a starving child. It is a healthy and beneficial concept from both parties. The restaurant’s social project has been given many good compliments from customers and the project continues to this very day.
