Customers of popular Vietnamese restaurant Eat Saigon have paid tribute to the Northampton town centre team following its closure.

The Gold Street restaurant thanked everyone who has supported them after six years on Facebook ahead of the closure on Saturday, October 26.

The post read: "To all our amazing patrons, we’re afraid to say, with a heavy heart, it’s over!"

"We are so grateful to our colleagues (past and current), family, friends and most importantly our loyal foodies who have made the experience of running Eat Saigon unforgettable.

"It was hard work and extremely stressful but all your kind reviews made it worth it."

'Closed' signs have gone up in Eat Saigon's window, and the building is up for let through Hadland Chartered Surveyors.
