Harrods, the Knightsbridge-based department store, is to open two new restaurants this April - Asian restaurant Pan Chai and Thai restaurant Mango Tree.

Both restaurants are operated by restaurateur Eddie Lim, owner of the Mango Tree in Belgravia and Malaysian restaurant Awana in Chelsea.

Mango Tree currently operates 15 restaurants around the world, as well as three ‘fast-food’ sites. The fast food sites are all located in Bangkok, Thailand, within the airport and shopping centres.

The restaurants will be joined by two new opening from high-profile chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, and Richard Corrigan.

Galvin Demoiselle, will become the fifth London restaurant from the Galvins when it opens in March, while Corrigan is to launch Bentley’s Sea Grill at the store in May.

Lim said: “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.”

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.”
