Thai Leisure Group (TLG) has closed its Chaophraya restaurant in Manchester after 12 years of trading.

Manchester Evening News​ reports that the site shut its doors shortly before Christmas.

The Chaophraya brand, which is billed as a more high-end alternative to TLG's Thaikhun casual dining concept, is left with seven sites in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool and Newcastle.

The Manchester closure comes after TLG entered in to a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA)​ in October, which it said it would use to “address of a number of underperforming sites”.

TLG was founded in Leeds in 2004 and now trades from 20 restaurants across the UK.

These include 10 Thaikun sites, one Yee Rah Wok & Grill in Liverpool and two ChaoBaby shopping centre buffets in Manchester and Sheffield.

The company says on its website it is aiming to become the ‘leading Thai restaurant operator in the UK’.
