King and I Thai to close December 17
Downtown Minneapolis's King and I Thai will serve its last meal on December 17
We had a chance to talk to one of the owners about why King and I is closing after its long run. In the end, says Gary Haanpaa, husband to chef-owner Chavhivan "Bou" Haanpaa, it's because the building lease is coming to an end. He also cited various personal reasons that he didn't want to disclose. He said that they just felt as though it was their time to be done.
IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT WE ANNOUNCE WE WILL BE CLOSING OUR DOORS FOR BUSINESS MONDAY DECEMBER 17TH (AFTER 32 YEARS!) DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL... WE WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND DEDICATION OVER THE YEARS! IT'S BEEN A GOOD RUN!
THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!
KING AND I THAI RESTAURANT & LOUNGE
P.S.: We will be keeping our regular hours up to our closing date...
