I hope that someone may be able to help ease my curiosity!
My family were customers at the Silver Sea chinese restaurant on Abbey Street since I was a baby, and earlier this year we went to get our (much needed)takeaway only to find the shop all bordered up :(
I was wondering if anyone knew what happened? The family were lovely, and the food was unlike any chinese food I've ever had. We'll never find a worthy replacement, unless somebody makes my day and tells me that they've simply moved premises!!
The property was bought from the Council a couple of years ago by a private property speculation company along with Royal Taxis at 150 to 156. It was then sold on to another property developer and then another who refurbished it rather well as a family house with patio garden and sold it a few weeks ago for about half a million.
We knew the tenants were going to get the push sooner or later but we never knew when and one day they were there as usual and the next gone. They never said where or put up a sign or anything.
