The Rickshaw is closed for renovations

This was spotted last week. Writing on the papered over window of The Rickshaw on Gertrude St says ‘closed for renovation’. After opening about 18 months ago they have struggled to attract customers. The vibe is wrong. The menu seemed contrived. I could not bring myself to enter. I believe the operators are the same as for the previous restaurant there, Tandoori Times, which also failed. I’ll be surprised if it reopens.
