Mango Tree Worldwide, the world’s leading Thai restaurant operator, has celebrated the launch of its first outlet in Shenzhen, as it continues to introduce authentic Thai cuisine to China’s most dynamic destinations.The new Mango Tree Kitchen is perfectly positioned in COCO Park, a mega-mall and lifestyle complex in the Futian district, which is considered to be Shenzhen’s central business district. With multiple stores, five-star hotels, commercial complexes, entertainment facilities and a major convention centre right its doorstep, the new restaurant will benefit from a high volume of demand from local families, friends, office workers and international travellers alike.
Modern and stylish, the new Mango Tree Kitchen features a contemporary design concept with polished wooden floors, modern furniture and a dramatic light installation, with hundreds bulbs hanging elegantly from the ceiling. This makes it a great option for quick bites, light lunches or evening meals.
Diners in Shenzhen can savour a wide selection of Thai favourites, including exquisite appetisers, vibrant salads, spicy soups, fragrant curries and more, all crafted by highly-skilled chefs using fresh ingredients. Signature main courses include baked prawns or crab with glass noodles in a clay pot, beef ribs in a stone bowl with black pepper sauce, steamed sea bass with chili & garlic lime sauce, and for a truly luxurious treat, Thai-style fried Australian lobster with garlic. These delicious dishes can be accompanied with a choice of vegetables, rice and noodles, including phad Thai, the Thai street food favourite.
The new restaurant also offers an extensive beverage list, comprising fruit juices, tropical blends, whole young coconuts, special teas, cold beers, exotic cocktails, fine wines and more – the ideal refreshment for any occasion and every time of day.
The launch of Mango Tree Kitchen at COCO Park reflects the success of Mango Tree’s growth strategy, which focuses on bringing casual yet compelling Thai dining experiences to areas of high footfall, such as transport hubs, shopping malls and entertainment complexes in key destinations all over the world. This latest opening also underscores Mango Tree’s confidence in the Chinese hospitality industry, in the wake of the global pandemic. The company now operates six outlets in China, focusing on first-tier cities and the country’s busiest air terminals.
“We are delighted to open our inaugural restaurant in Shenzhen, as our expansion in China gathers momentum. With its huge population of over 12 million people in the metro area alone, thriving economy and international outlook, Shenzhen is an important city that we have been targeting for some time. We just needed to find the right location, and they don’t get any better than COCO Park. Right in the heart of downtown, next to the landmark Ping’an International Financial Center and surrounded by landmarks and attractions, this will allow us to cater for every type of diner, from local shoppers to international executives,” said Trevor MacKenzie, Global Managing Director of Mango Tree Worldwide.
“Our achievements are underpinned by strong partnerships and the strength of our brands. Looking ahead, we will continue to introduce world-class Thai cuisine to high-profile urban and airport locations in China, across Asia and all around the globe,” he added.
Mango Tree Worldwide now operates six outlets in Mainland China, including urban restaurants in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Qingdao, and convenient outlets at major international airports such as Guangzhou Baiyun. These form part of a global portfolio of 71 locations worldwide. Mango Tree remains on track towards achieving its target of operating 100 outlets by 2025.
