Another Thai Restaurant Trying to Fill Old Lotus Vegan Spot?

There's a few hints that another Thai eatery is on its way, but not much is happening at the moment.

Want to talk Deja Vu? It looks like a Thai restaurant is going to replace a Thai restaurant that initially replaced Lotus Vegan--a Thai restaurant.

NoHo Thai opened at 4715 Vineland Ave. last fall when Lotus Vegan moved to Lankershim Boulevard, but the new eatery shuttered after less than a month in business.

While on a stroll on Vineland last week, I saw a hand-written note on the building's front window that read: "this location will be closed for three days for remodeling."

The spot remains closed as of New Year's Day.

The only indication that another Thai restaurant might be on its way is a sign on the glass that says "Thai noodle soup."

An "A" grade from the County of Los Angeles Public Health Department is posted on the front window, but Environmental Health Specialist Scott Hunter said that the grade was given to a previous owner.

I loved going to Lotus Vegan because of this location and there's plenty of parking. With some local advertising they should do very well. Also love the patio.

Instead of Thai Noodle Soup, can they make it Pho Noodle soup? That would be a guaranteed winner seeing as there aren't any Pho restaurants in NoHo. And no, Sherman Way does not count. This will be Thai cafe number 32....

I second that notion. We need a Phở restaurant somewhere in the North Hollywod area!

"Lotus Vegan Noodle Soup" is now open. Various noodle soups, all vegan, of course. Seems a bit pricey, though. 12 varieties, priced between $9 and $11.

Are you saying this new place replacing Lotus Vegan is Lotus Vegan Noodle Soup? Hopefully they have a Pho soup in that mix of soups and hopefully it's good. I've seen many Koreans try to make Pho and it's a disaster (ie Pho Citi).
