Troubled takeaway is temporaril­y closed again


A TROUBLED Chinese takeaway in a Meon Valley village has closed its doors again – for the fourth time in under two years.

Wok & Roll in The Square, Wickham, posted on its Facebook page on April 29.

It said: ‘We are temporaril­y closed due to unforeseea­ble circumstan­ces.

‘Please follow this Facebook page for updates.

‘Sorry for any inconvenie­nce. Thank you very much.’

The takeaway has had a chequered past and only reopened under new owners in February.

The takeaway was formerly known as Panda, but it closed in September 2019 after its previous manager An

Lee and owner Mohammed Riaze were fined £12,000 for a series of cleanlines­s failings at Portsmouth Magistrate­s’ Court.

It then reopened in November 2019 under the new name New Panda, after an overhaul with new owners.

However this incarnatio­n did not last long, and they closed in March 2020 for the national lockdown, but never reopened.

New owners took over in September 2020, with locals dubbing it the ‘New New Panda’, before the latest owners took over in February this year – changing its name to Wok & Roll.
