Update: After some conflicting reports from several sources, not helped by Imperial Bento seemingly unwilling to comment it turns out that the popular restaurant is only closing for refurbishment and will reopen to business as usual but having dropped Dim Sum from the menu.
Twitter user Aileen (@aileencheng58) has kindly let me use a photo she took of a notice Imperial Bento had hastily put up in their window:
With local press and social media reporting the closure of any business it’s important for management to ensure any statements are made promptly and that they are accurate. It seems in this case that staff were either unwilling to answer questions on the presumed permanent closure or were misinformed, giving out incorrect information.
This is great news for those that enjoy Imperial Bento and I look forward to visiting them again when they reopen later this month.
