Suya Joint to Replace Bangkok Cafe in Roslindale

It looks like an African restaurant is coming to Roslindale, and it will apparently be moving into the space where a Thai spot has been for the past several years.

According to the restaurant's website, Suya Joint is planning on having a grand opening for their restaurant sometime this month on Poplar Street. The address that they give is that of the Bangkok Cafe, which has been in Roslindale Village since 2005, and a PDF page on the City of Boston website seems to confirm that Bangkok Cafe will be replaced by Suya Joint, as a transfer of a liquor license from one business to the other was discussed during a Licensing Board meeting last month.

The 35-seat Suya Joint will be featuring West African cuisine, with an emphasis on Nigerian fare. It will also offer catering, according to its website.

[February 13, 2012 update: According to Universal Hub, Suya Joint is now open. (Thanks to food/drinks writer MC Slim JB for bringing this to our attention.)]

The address for the new Suya Joint is: Suya Joint, 25 Poplar Street, Roslindale, MA, 02123. The website for the restaurant can be found at
