Now, it might be total hearsay (all my best posts usually are), but having asked one of the decorators in the place next door, he says that The Laughing Buddha is going to turn into an Indian Restaurant. Which is a bit of a shame to be honest – there are quite a few already, some very good, and many reasonable. But there was only one other Chinese place. Oh well, if anyone can confirm it, please let me know.
The photo was taken by me, through the only bit of window that wasn’t all smeared up with that white stuff that shops use to cover up glass. There used to be a sign up saying “temporarily closed for renovations”, but it seems to have been taken down now.
