From kiddos to their parents, anyone can appreciate the sweet, creamy deliciousness of a Mango Lassi. This yogurt-based mango milkshake or smoothie pairs wonderfully with the spicy, savory flavors of Indian and Mediterranean cuisine, so it’s no surprise that several of these types of restaurants around the city specialize in crafting this yummy beverage.


Annapurna Cafe | 1833 Broadway | 206-320-7770

India Gate Bellevue | 3080 148th Avenue SE | 425-747-1075

Head to Bellevue, where you can enjoy a truly authentic taste of India at India Gate Restaurant. With owners and chefs that emigrated from the country to bring traditional dishes to the greater Seattle area, you can trust in the authenticity of India Gate’s cuisine. Their Mango Lassi is absolutely delicious!


Nirmal's | 106 Occidental Avenue S | 206-388-2196

Nirmal’s has received some pretty significant acclaim in the Seattle media circuit over the past couple of years, and for very good reasons. Master Chef Nirmal Monteiro combines the tastes from various regions around India into a specialized cuisine reflective of his culinary experiences. From tandoor to entrees, Nirmal’s dishes are wonderful pairings with a cold glass of the restaurant’s Mango Lassi.


Petra Mediterranean Bistro | 2501 4th Avenue | 206-728-5389

The Mango Lassi is one of three non-alcoholic specialty beverages available at Petra Bistro, in addition to a non-alcoholic beer. Sip the restaurant’s Tamer Hindi or Coconut Lemonade, but the Mango Lassi is just the right amount of sweet and savory to complement any Petra Bistro dish well. This is particularly true of the authentic Jordanian, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern dishes topped with the eatery’s house tahini sauce or beloved garlic sauce. Yum!
