Nottingham Thai street food restaurant in sudden closure

Thaikun opened in Nottingham three years ago

Another restaurant in intu’s Victoria Centre Clocktower dining area has closed.

Thaikhun, the Thai street food outlet, is the fifth eaterie to close just three years after it opened, reports the Nottingham Post.

It follows Joe’s Kitchen, Coast to Coast, Handmade Burger Co and Stonebaked Pizza Company – all of which were launched as part of intu’s Clocktower dining concept.

A statement from Ian Leigh, managing director of the Thai Leisure Group, owners of Thaikhun: “We are sorry to say we have decided to close our restaurant after over two happy years here in Nottingham.

“This location didn’t quite work out for us unfortunately.

“We would like to thank every person who ever visited our restaurant and we are sorry if you have made a journey to us today only to find that we have now gone.”

In better news for intu, fast food giant McDonald’s was given the go-ahead to create more than 65 jobs in Nottingham city centre in June after plans for a new 7,600 sq ft venue in the intu Victoria Centre were given the green light.

The burger chain will open the new restaurant in the former Coast to Coast unit which has space for outside seating. Coast to Coast closed in February 2017 with the loss of 20 jobs.
