Bangkok City Restaurant in Boston's Back Bay Has Closed

One of the oldest restaurants of its kind in Boston has closed its doors.

According to a Twitter post from @TheDrewStarr, Bangkok City Restaurant in the Back Bay/Fenway area of the city is no longer in operation, with a note out front saying that "As of May 30, 2015, we are closing due to a loss of lease. Thank you for your patronage!" It is not known whether the Mass. Ave. dining spot will try to open in a new space at this point in time; if we hear any information on this over the coming days, we will post an update here.

Bangkok City first opened in the early 1990s, offering an extensive menu that included a variety of both Thai-American and authentic Thai dishes. It was one of the longest-running Thai restaurants in Boston, with King & I on Charles Street being one of the only Thai places in the city that is older (it has been open since in the mid-1980s).

The address for this now-closed Thai restaurant in the Back Bay/Fenway was: Bangkok City Restaurant, 167 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115.
