363 Adelaide St (City Shop) Closure


You have provably noticed that our building is being renovated as we continue to operate amidst it all.  

I only have the deepest gratitude towards our hard core customers for braving the noise and continueing to support us. Today in particular the back storage area was flooded from a pipe breakage upstairs and we also had no lighting in the dining area.  Took a few phone calls to get sorted and hoping the issue is fixed for now.  It was stressful to have to serve a full house with patient customers slurping ramen in the dark with a tradie grinding away concrete just next door. More noise and incidents are bound to happen as we continue to trade in a construction site building.  It does seem that the works stop during dinner time and it is pretty quiet so far and impact is minimal except for a few lighting issues making the outside Adelaide street frontage area a bit more moody than the inside dining area.   

I have decided to announce that our city shop will shut shop at end of August (exact day to be announced). Thank you customers for your support for coming to us for the last five years in this location.  We are looking at re-opening at a permanent nearby CBD location in early 2016. When movements are clearer we will update.  

Also if there is a suitable location we are interested in doing a pop up at a interim temporary location and if we do have the luck of this concept materializing, we will certainly also update any such information. 

Thanks again for your tremendous patience and we will do our best to serve you until we close our doors end August.   

Ascot shop will continue to trade as usual.
