Burmese restaurant Mandalay at 930 Bonifant Street in Silver Spring has announced they will be closing the location on October 31.
The closing of this location has been expected for several years as Mandalay first announced in 2019 that they were moving to a new location in Washington, DC.
Source of the Spring reports that the new location at 7302 Georgia Avenue is not expected to open for another 8-10 months.
Mandalay posted the following message on their Facebook page on Friday:
“As many things in life at some point things has to come to an end! With hearts full of emotions and sadness we have to announce the bad news about Mandalay!Sad to say that the end of Mandalay at this location will be coming to an end! October 31st will be the end of Mandalay at 930 Bonifant St, Silver Spring, MD 20910. The past 20 years has been nothing short of a blessing for the family and so many things to be thankful for. First and foremost the amazing customers that supported us from day one are actually the reasons we have lasted this long. One of the thing we sure will miss is seeing our regulars come through the place. I want to say so many things and most of it is not coming out! Mandalay has been a big factor and part of the family for so long that adjusting will be very hard! The news is sad but we do have some news is that Mandalay will still live though a few locations in DC! As many of you know the Salads that are produce at Bandoola Bowl ( second location opening soon at 2000 Pennsylvania Ave NW )are the same salads with more salads options ( please go see bandoolabowl.com for details )! Also we will be announcing details about a new Burmese inspired concept that will be opening very soon. Thank you so much for all the support though out the years from the bottom of our hearts.
