Soon to be ex-Thai restaurant.
Boston Restaurant Talk reports Bangkok Cafe on Poplar Street is being replaced by Suya Joint, which promises "unique, Nigerian recipes." It may be the city's only Nigerian restaurant following the closing of African Cuisine in Hyde Park earlier this year.
Bangkok Cafe never seemed to achieve critical mass in Roslindale, even after expanding its menu to include Korean and Japanese dishes.
Roslindale Thai fans will have to make their way to Asian Thai Cuisine on River Street in Hyde Park or Thai Spice, Phuket or Sticky Rice in West Roxbury.
