Mango Tree opens new Thai eatery in Bangalore

Asian restaurant operator Mango Tree Worldwide, has introduced its latest culinary concept to India — the Mango Chili restaurant in Bangalore, a major southern metropolis also known as Bengaluru.
Located in the Forum Shantiniketan Mall, in the upmarket Whitefield area of the city, the new restaurant will focus on serving authentic Thai street food in a stylish and social setting where diners will be transported back to the bustling streets of Bangkok, with bright and bold interiors featuring modern artworks and fun décor, including a Thai tuk-tuk. 
Food at the Mango Chili Restaurant
On the menu are Thai flavours with playful presentations. Guests can choose from a series signature Thai grilled meats, such as marinated chicken, satay sticks and sai oua sausage with signature sauces, plus stir-fried dishes like phad ga-phraow (minced chicken with basil and chili) and phad Thai (noodles with tofu and beansprouts), and Thailand’s famously spicy salads, soups and curries, including som tam (papaya salad), tom yum goong (spicy and sour shrimp soup) and gaeng khiew wahn gai (green curry with chicken). 
Then for dessert, guests can cool off with the traditional taste of Thai ice cream, just like they serve at Bangkok’s bustling Chatuchak Market, or discover the fresh flavour of sweet ripe mango with Thai-style sticky rice.
According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), 1.5 million Indian travellers visited the “Land of Smiles” last year, and that figure is expected to continue rising in 2019. Mango Tree said this means a huge number of Indians – including many millennial travellers and young families – are now experiencing authentic Thai cuisine while on holiday and want to enjoy the same flavours when they return home. Mango Chili Bangalore will allow Indian customers to savour the true taste of Thai street food, both at home and abroad.
Trevor MacKenzie, Mango Tree’s global managing director, said:
“We are very excited to introduce our Mango Chili concept to India. Bangalore is a dynamic metropolis with a youthful population, and our new Thai street food concept will satisfy the growing Indian appetite for contemporary and convenient cuisine, especially among millennial diners. With its prime position on Whitefield Main Road and high footfall, the Forum Shantiniketan Mall is the perfect setting for Mango Chili Bangalore, and we look forward to becoming the destination of choice for Bangalore’s new generation of diners.”
The store will be operated by HMSHost International, leading provider of food & beverage locations at high traffic locations worldwide.
Walter Seib, CEO of HMSHost International, said: “We are delighted to open the first Mango Chili Thai Café in Bengaluru. HMSHost International is creating new food destinations by working with inspiring global brands and introducing new food concepts around the world. The partnership with Mango Tree enables us to grant our guests in Bengaluru the experience of an authentic Thai restaurant concept.”
