From a press release:
“The original location is situated in the heart of Bangkok in a beautiful Thai house built almost 100 years ago during the reign of King Rama VI. The restaurant is named after the great mango tree planted in front of the former house.
Opening Date: January 15, 2015
Hours of Operation: Dinner service from 5 PM to 11 PM
Lunch service from 11 AM to 3 PM (starting Jan 19th)
Menu Description: Mango Tree will serve genuine Thai dishes from each of the four main culinary regions: rich and fully flavored dishes from the North, spicy cuisine from the Northeast, more mild dishes influenced by the Chinese cooking style from the Central region, and hot and spicy cuisine from the South. In each dish, one will find the artful blending of savory, sweet, sour and spice which delivers the harmonious taste in each bite, and Thai food is naturally medicinal, bringing health and vigor to the meal. Menu highlights include Tom Yum, a lemongrass and kaffir lime infused spicy and sour broth with Maine lobster or an array of mixed seafood Massaman Gae, Mussaman curry with slow cooked lamb shank and fingerling potato, and Goong Mung Gorn Phad Phong Karee, baked Maine lobster dressed in yellow curry powder with egg and onion, which has become a signature dish at Mango Tree. Some of the dishes are refreshed for contemporary tastes while others are classics, to be continuously enjoyed for generations.
Beverage Program: Mango Tree’s handcrafted cocktails including the Lychee Mojito, Spicy Siam, craft beer, along with an approachable wine list that has been created to marry well with the flavors of Thai cuisine.
Capacity: Those dining at this welcoming, upscale restaurant will enjoy the second floor 140-seat main dining room and the 24-seat seasonal outdoor terrace. Mango Tree will also have a vibrant first floor 45-seat bar and lounge for those looking forward to sipping classic cocktails and innovative libations while listening to expertly curated music.
Design: Lázaro Rosa-Violán Studio from Spain is responsible for designing the 6,800-square foot space, which draws inspiration from Thailand with a twist of European sophistication. Mango Tree’s sleek design scheme makes it an ideal gathering place for meeting with friends or entertaining clients.”
