The authentic Thai Bistro is set to open in the heart of JBR in February

Dubai (February 6, 2019):  The leading Asian dining venue, with restaurants situated in over 10 countries across the world, ‘Mango Tree Thai Bistro’ will be opening in Dubai, at Hilton Dubai The Walk in early February 2019. The venue promises to serve up delicious authentic Thai flavours and some new Thai creations that will entice Thai lovers palates, prepared by the talented in-house team and Head Chef – Atip Intarakased from Thailand.

The menu will feature an array of mouthwatering dishes from the 4 regions of Thailand, along with introducing some items that are familiar to the local palate. Both countries share similar cultural elements, such as unique herbs and spices used in cooking, and the idea of dining together with families or for social gatherings, giving diners at Mango Tree Thai Bistro a feel for new and familiar tastes.

Guests can expect to savour dishes such as watermelon salad with hand grinded dry shrimps floss, an ancient Thai recipe from the Royal palaces revived with a contemporary touch and new trends like som tam corn salad that has become a trend in restaurants everywhere in Thailand. The menu will feature other unique signature dishes such as spicy beef short ribs soup, jungle curry from the mountainous regions, and massaman leg of lamb inspired from the South of Thailand. Guests can also quench their thirst by sipping on delicious beverages such as the one-of-a-kind mango tree mule and mango basil tini curated in from Bangkok’s mixologist, complimented with a Thai tapas bar menu and Thai flatbread creations.

The interiors of the new Thai Bistro boasts a vibrant, rustic and retro feel, coupled with bespoke art murals on the walls that resemble the lively and fun-loving lifestyle of Thai people and the bustling Bangkok. The architect behind the venue design is Ryan Phanphensophon, son of the COCA and Mango Tree Restaurants’ CEO Pitaya Phanphensophon, and grandson of the restaurant group’s original founder, Srichai Phanphensophon, who first started the restaurant group back in 1957 from a simple 20 seat shophouse in downtown Bangkok.

The lively family-friendly venue allows a seating capacity of 156 guests and a terrace overlooking the vibrant streets of JBR. Guests can expect a relaxed dining atmosphere, with refreshing beverages and the upbeat sounds playing throughout the evening.

“We are excited to have such a well-known restaurant brand open at our hotel. The concept is authentic and the food is full of flavours. We are confident Mango Tree Thai Bistro will see great success. We can’t wait to open the doors to our guests at Hilton Dubai The Walk,” said Andreas Searty, Cluster General Manager, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, Hilton Dubai The Walk and Hilton Dubai Creek.

“Our new Mango Tree Thai Bistro promises to deliver something never before seen in the region; a vibrant dining destination that is less formal than traditional Thai restaurants. Hilton Dubai The Walk attracts a large number of families and guests on extended stays, so this bold bistro concept with indoor seating and outdoor patio will be perfectly suited to guests who want a casual place to dine, couples and groups of friends seeking a fun and lively evening out,” said Trevor MacKenzie, Mango Tree’s Global Managing Director.
