Another restaurant is shutting for good as Ari’s Japanese beef specialist Wagyuism called it quits today.

The corner spot on Soi Ari Samphan 5, known for its melt-in-your-mouth Kobe and Hokkaido wagyu, announced on Tuesday afternoon that today will be its last in business.

“We thank every customer for coming and supporting our restaurant. Now we’re officially out of business. 29.06.21,” Wagyuism wrote in a terse Facebook post.

The restaurant was opened three years ago by siblings Sudarat Adirek and Aparat Adirek, whose day job involves importing premium beef.

Restaurants throughout Bangkok are dealing with a fresh round of restrictions banning dining-in, announced in a late-night Royal Gazette release over the weekend. Restaurants can only offer take-away and delivery at least until July 27.
