THE Territory’s tough economic climate has forced Darwin’s longest serving, award-winning Thai and Asian restaurant to close its doors.
After 40 years the Asian Gateway at Nightcliff has shut its doors, with an equipment closing down sale last weekend.
A simple Facebook post told the story: Sadly this local gem, Asian Gateway, is closing this Sunday … nearly $8,000 monthly rent is a tough game in the burbs.”
And with that, all the restaurant equipment, tables, chairs, plates, cooking equipment, the lot, went on sale.
It was a sad end for a Darwin icon that has served generations of Territorians, won numerous awards, and consistently rated four stars on websites such as TripAdvisor.
