Updated: Ballard is losing one of its Thai restaurants. After nearly a decade in old Ballard, Thaiku (5410 Ballard Ave. NW) is closing.
Staff was told last week that the restaurant would close on December 23rd. The bar,
however, may stay open until the end of the year will also close on the same day. Staff tell us that the landlord has raised the rent to an amount they can’t afford, so the owners have decided to close.
According to a press release sent out this afternoon, the owners of Thaiku are looking for a new location and hope to have a new space open within a year.
