A popular Thai restaurant has closed permanently after a devastating flood. Nam Jai Thai in Cheadle announced the shock decision this weekend.
The fast food restaurant has built up a loyal following over the years and scores a near-perfect 4.9 out of 5 on Google and an impressive 4.5 on TripAdvisor. It also boasts a five-star hygiene rating.
But the owners say the Chapel Street building is no longer suitable due to water damage. They are now looking for alternative premises in the neighborhood but say there are currently no vacancies that would meet their needs.

Writing on Facebook, Nam Jai Thai said, “With regrets, we will not be reopening due to the flooding. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers over the past four years. We will all miss you very much. “
The news was greeted with disappointment among diners in the city. Jonathan Keane said: “This is very sad news, we will definitely miss you. We always knew we would have fresh, healthy food and great friendly service. We wish you all the best.”
Sally Gould added: “I’m so sorry, I know how hard you both worked. Hope you find another property and get back up and running soon.” And Jane Armstrong said, “So sorry to hear that. It’s such a great family business and I hope you find somewhere soon that works much better for you.”
