Mango Tree Restaurants Worldwide, headquartered in Bangkok, opened their first outpost in India. After winning customers across Bangkok, Hongkong, China, Tokyo, Manila and London, Mango Tree now makes its way to Mumbai with an outlet in the newly opened lifestyle complex Horizon in Juhu.
After twenty-four years since the first Mango Tree was opened by Pitaya Phanphensophon in Bangkok, it has expanded and evolved from its origins to be a modern contemporary lifestyle brand that has several tiers of its restaurants at every consumer level.
“Although Thailand has always been my home, I also inherited certain Chinese characteristics from my parents and this influences my approach to cooking and also to the restaurant business. I strongly believe in using the freshest locally sourced ingredients and although we always present our dishes beautifully, great taste is at the heart of every dish on our menus, said Phanphensophon.
Mango Tree Mumbai opens in partnership with Rana Singh of Mondo Culinary, known as the sole representative in India for the dinnerware brands Wedgwood and Vera Wang Home.
“We believe that we are more than simply a restaurant and make sure that we deliver an experience to the guest that is more than just food. Today Mango Tree has nine flagships spanning seven countries in prime cities and our vision is to be the premier global brand of Thai cuisine by delivering quality food with great taste and true Thai hospitality in every major city throughout the world”, added Trevor MacKanzie, MD/Partner, Mango Tree Restaurants Worldwide.
“Savor, explore, converse, imbibe…. Take a tour to the four regions of Thailand’s culinary compass, where our chefs have distilled the best of Northern, North-Eastern, Central and Southern Thai cuisines, to present the best of these regions to India”, said Rana Singh.
Signature Dishes created for Mango Tree Mumbai include Thai Betelnut Leaf Wrap (Miang Kham), Phad Thai Spring Roll (Por Pia Phad Thai), Clear Tom Yum Soup Seafood Hotpot (Poh Taek) Banana Blossom Salad (Yum Hua Plee), Mango Tree Lobster Phad Thai (Lobster Phad Thai), Crab in Yellow Curry Sauce (Poo Phad Phong Karee), Two-way Fish (Pla Song Withi) and Massaman Curry Lamb Shanks (Massaman Kha Kae)
The 120-seater space is divided in three distinctly designed zones: lounge, dining area and private room. Handcrafted Asian-inspired cocktails include Pomelo and Rosemary Tini, Mango Tree Mule, Lemon Grass Glalangal Tini.
