Speaking after the 3-2 win, the 22-year-old French star left a lasting impression on fans when his English-speaking skills were showcased.
"It was a difficult game against the best team in Europe at the moment," Mbappe said.
"We played well, like a team, the collective was good. My teammates were so good. And I want to say congratulations to the whole team.
"It is only the first game and we have another game at home, so we have to stay focused on the game."
Mbappe opened the scoring early at the Allianz Arena before Marquinhos put PSG 2-0 up in the 28th minute.
However, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting pulled back an equaliser for the defending Champions League holders ahead of half-time.
Mbappe has admitted that PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino reassured his side at half-time and told them to play with "confidence and not to be scared to play."
The France international explained: "After the first goal, it's true we stayed back and Bayern Munich put a lot of pressure.
"But at half-time, the coach said to keep the confidence and not to be scared to play.
"That is what we did in the second half, and it was so much better. It was a little bit difficult in the first 15 minutes of the second half and they equalised.
"But after we scored the last goal, we kept the result."
Thomas Muller pulled Bayern level in the 60th minute, but Mbappe would return minutes later to complete his brace and secure a win for PSG.
Mbappe was thrilled that he managed to beat Manuel Neuer twice after failing to score against the Bayern star in last season's Champions League final in Lisbon.
The French World Cup winner insisted that he hopes to score against the 35-year-old German shot-stopper in the return leg, saying he is "one of the best 'keepers in history of the game."
Mbappe added: "I love to play against the best players in the world.
"Manuel Neuer is one of the best 'keepers in history of the game. I don't have any pressure [when one-on-one with him].
"We played in the final against him, we didn't score, but now it was another game and I scored. I hope to score again."
PSG will host Bayern for the second-leg quarter-final clash on 13th April at the Parc des Princes.
