One of Belfast's most popular Asian-styled restaurants has announced it is closing.
Bangkok Thai, which opened its doors in the city centre two years ago, had tried to ride the downturn with delivery and pavement pick-ups but decided the business could not survive.
The company said on social media that the owners are planning to launch a Thai food home kit and "reopen at a new location in the future".
The restaurant once employed approximately 30 full- and part-time staff.
"We are sad to say we will close for good on June 28, but in the meantime please support us for our beautiful takeaway service. We hope to see you soon," the company said in a post on social media.
Many of its customers expressed sadness at the closure of the city centre restaurant and praised its food and service.
One wrote: "We wish you all the best in these difficult times, I hope you can come back stronger from this, we have enjoyed many nights at Bangkok and the food has been the best we have had, good luck and hope to see you again soon."
The Adelaide Street restaurant closed its doors to all business following the March lockdown but reopened for delivery in the middle of April.
"We are so glad to know our lovely customers want to support us going forward, our hearts are bursting," the company said when announcing the delivery service.
In the hours before the shutdown, the restaurant cooked up meals for hospital workers as a way to show appreciation for them.
Co-owner Edmund Byrne told the Belfast Telegraph he used the remainder of the produce on site to cook 160 meals for employees of the Royal Victoria Hospital during the lockdown.
Mr Byrne, who noted that the restaurant should have been celebrating its second anniversary rather than closing, said: "We were looking at the products remaining, wondering what to do and then decided we wanted to do something really good with it.
"All we could think of was giving the hospital staff a bit of relief because they're deeply stressed getting prepared for the terrible wave that's on the way."
