Set on the 10th floor of JR Hakata City in downtown Fukuoka, directly above the city’s main railway station, this stylish new restaurant can accommodate up to 64 guests in a relaxed indoor dining area and a chic outdoor terrace.
This prime location and the restaurant’s offering of contemporary Thai tapas dishes and creative cocktails is expected to attract a wide range of diners. In line with the brand’s modern culinary concept, chefs will use authentic ingredients to craft delicious lunch and dinner menus that embrace the flavours and fragrances of Thailand.
“Japan is an important international market for Mango Tree, and we are delighted to introduce another of our distinctive concepts to the country. Fukuoka is one of Japan’s largest cities and a key commercial hub. Plus, regular direct flights to and from Bangkok have helped give the local people an appreciation of Thai cuisine. At Mango Tree Bistro Hakata we look forward to providing diners with traditional Thai flavours in an informal yet energising ambience,” said Trevor MacKenzie, global managing director for Mango Tree Restaurants Worldwide.
Mango Tree Worldwide is currently undergoing significant expansion, with the aim of increasing its global collection of restaurants from 70 outlets today to more than 100 locations by 2025. Japan is a key market for the company, with 26 restaurants now operating across the country.
