    A Thai restaurant in Cambridge has closed down, though it looks like another Thai spot may be moving into its space.

    According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Pandan Leaf in East Cambridge is no longer in business, with a sign out front saying that 9 Zaab is planning to open there, offering Thai street food according to the sign. It is not known when 9 Zaab could be opening or what will be on the menu ("Zaab" typically refers to extra spicy Thai food), so stay tuned for updates.

    Pandan Leaf first opened in the spring of 2016, taking over the space where CurryThai Restaurant had been.

    The address for the now-closed Pandan Leaf (and the upcoming 9 Zaab) is 569 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02141.
