Mango Tree Worldwide, the world’s leading Thai restaurant operator, continues to introduce high-quality, convenient and contemporary Thai cuisine to Asia’s most dynamic destinations with the launch of a new Mango Tree Café in downtown Tokyo.Mango Tree Café Tokyo Dome City LaQua is perfectly positioned within Tokyo Dome City, one of the Japanese capital’s top entertainment complexes which features almost 70 restaurants, cafés and bars, an amusement park, a shopping mall with almost 50 stores, a hotel, spa and event space. These facilities are all adjacent to the Tokyo Dome, an impressive international sporting arena.
Bright, vibrant and inviting, Mango Tree Cafés are ideal for every occasion, including light lunches with friends and family meals. Diners can enjoy a wide selection of Thai favourites, such as pad grapao (spicy minced pork with rice and a fried egg), khao pad (fried rice) tom yum (spicy and sour seafood soup), pad Thai noodles, “Half & Half” set meals and more, all freshly-cooked onsite and accompanied by a range of beverages, including fruit juices, tropical blends, cold beers, fine wines and premium whiskies. Young guests can enjoy their first taste of Thai food with a colourful Kid’s Menu, and all diners can finish their meal with a delicious dessert, including a choice of exotic ice creams.
Easily accessible via the JR rail and subway networks, the 49-seat Mango Tree Café Tokyo Dome City LaQua is open daily for lunch (11.00 – 17.00 hrs) and dinner (17.00 – 23.00 hrs). The launch of this new outlet continues Mango Tree’s successful strategy of bringing casual Thai dining to areas of high footfall, such as transport hubs, shopping malls and entertainment complexes.
This opening also underscores Mango Tree’s confidence in the Asian hospitality industry, in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. As life in many countries starts to return to normal, the majority of Mango Tree’s 69 outlets worldwide have now reopened, in line with the “new normal” of advanced safety standards and social distancing. The company has also reinforced its focus on healthy cuisine, using organic ingredients and local produce to create fresh and sustainable dishes.
“Japan is one of Mango Tree’s largest and most important markets. The Japanese public are sophisticated, health-conscious and well-travelled consumers. They have a deep understanding and appreciation for Thai cuisine, and many now consider it to be an everyday comfort food, rather than a special treat. By introducing our trendy Mango Tree Café concept to yet another high-profile venue, we will bring relaxed Thai dining to even more Japanese and international customers,” said Trevor MacKenzie, Global Managing Director of Mango Tree Worldwide.
“Japan has been very successful in its handling of the COVID-19 situation, and our faith in the country is demonstrated by this new opening. We now plan to accelerate our expansion in Japan and around the world, with multiple new restaurants in popular, high-profile locations,” he added.
Mango Tree Worldwide now operates 29 outlets in Japan under five of its original brands: Mango Tree, Mango Tree Bistro, Mango Tree Café, Mango Tree Deli and Mango Tree Kitchen. This latest addition to the group’s portfolio follows the launch of five new locations in 2019, covering three of the country’s largest gateway cities: Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka.
The world’s largest exporter of authentic Thai cuisine with 69 restaurants worldwide, Mango Tree remains on track towards achieving its target of operating 100 outlets by 2025.
