GUANGZHOU, CHINA – One of the leading purveyors of Thai-inspired genuine Asian cuisine, Mango Tree & COCA Restaurants Worldwide, has announced plans to open a new outlet inside the spectacular art and retail mall K11, the only high-end, high-rise retail project in heart of Zhujiang New Town, Guangzhou.
Scheduled to open later this year, Mango Tree Guangzhou is something of a homecoming for the brand’s Thai celebrity chef owner, Pitaya Phanphensophon, whose parents originally came from Guangdong Province but met each other in Thailand where they opened the company’s first Coca Restaurant together in Bangkok in 1957.
Since then, Mango Tree and Coca Restaurants have opened all over the world and the company has become a premier global Thai cuisine brand serving up quality Thai-inspired cuisine for discerning diners in more than 70 restaurants and cafes in 15 countries across Asia, the Middle East, and the USA.
“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.”
As the chosen location to introduce Mango Tree Restaurant’s genuine approach to fine cuisine, the group’s Managing Director, Trevor MacKenzie, believes K11 Guangzhou is the perfect choice. “ This impressive new mall is positioned as a place where culture and good living come together. Where trends and lifestyles collide to form new ideas and new inspirations. These are core values that Mango Tree Group also holds dear, he said.

Despite global economic challenges, Mango Tree & Coca Restaurants Worldwide has set an aggressive agenda for expansion in 2017 as it continues to build a strong network of partners in China and beyond to offer top quality Thai and Asian cuisine with authentic taste and genuine service that exceeds customer expectations.
“The response to our other Mango Tree Restaurant outlet in Qingdao was very positive and the focus on great taste and genuine hospitality really strikes a chord with Chinese diners. We are excited to build on that success in Guangzhou and to revive the family legacy that formed the foundation for all our success with Mango Tree and Coca Restaurants worldwide,” added Mr. MacKenzie.
