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".
