Thai Street takeaway on Magdalen Street opened on February 7.

The rebranded takeaway replaced Vegan Wok, which the owners said was not sustainable as an exclusively meat-free business.

On Facebook, around the time of its closure, Vegan Wok said: 'Unfortunately, we found that an exclusive vegan offering wasn't popular enough to keep going.

'The shop will be open again in February, but unfortunately not as a vegan only business.'
