tuk tuk thai near pico/robertson area used to have it as a special dessert, it was good and so is their food.

If you want the sticky rice with mango (kao nieow mamuang) and it is not the weekend - and so the Wat is not an option - and you don't want to eat it at a restaurant, then the best option is Bhan Kanom Thai in Hollywood. This is the Thai snack shop in the same strip mall as Ruen Pair and the former home of Palms. The mango won't be as fresh since it is pre-cut, but the sticky rice and the sweet coconut milk are quite good. As a bonus, you can also pick up a package of the green mango slices with a sticky sauce - completely delish, but don't eat too much at one sitting or your stomach will regret it. Both mango options are around $5 IIRC.

If you are on the westside, Saimese Garden on Washington in Venice has excellent Thai food and Mango sticky rice.
I am most definitely not in love with the Thai food at Cafe Talesai in Beverly Hills (9198 Olympic Blvd., Beverly Hills 310-271-9345), but I do have to say that they do a good sticky rice with mango and if you live in the area, it's convenient.
