A visit to world-renowned luxury department store Harrods is a must for anyone staying in hotel accommodation in London.
With one million square feet of selling space and over 330 departments, Harrods is a Mecca for shoppers coming to the capital.
But it is also home to a number of high-quality restaurants, located at the famous Harrods food hall, offering the chance to enjoy a fine dining experience after a day spent perusing the latest fashions.
And now the department store is to add two new Asian restaurants to its range of eateries – south-east Asian restaurant Pan Chai and Thai restaurant Mango Tree.
Both will open in April and are being launched in collaboration with restaurateur Eddie Lim and chef Ian Pengelley, reports Caterer and Hotelkeeper.
Commenting on the restaurant launches, Mr Lim told the news provider: "It's always exciting to open a new restaurant, but it is a privilege to have both Pan Chai and Mango Tree in Harrods, one of the world's most iconic stores.
"We're really looking forward to welcoming customers to all that Southeast Asia has to offer and providing them with quality cuisine."
Pan Chai will offer a number of different cuisines from around south-east Asia, including Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Malaysian, with a focus on sushi, sashimi and salads.
Mango Tree will be the sister site to Mango Tree in Belgravia and will feature a similar menu of authentic Thai dishes and flavours.
Paul Goodale, director of restaurants at Harrods, said: "We believe the exceptional dishes and warm hospitality offered by Pan Chai and Mango Tree at Harrods make them the perfect addition to our portfolio of 28 restaurants.
"At Harrods we are always seeking to exceed our shoppers' expectations with an array of gourmet dining experiences and are sure they'll be thrilled with these latest additions."
