Sala Thai, a popular restaurant for take-out in Portland’s North Deering neighborhood, is closing in July.

According to a letter to customers posted on the doors and at the bar by owner Jiraporn Thanop, the landlord has sold the building at 1363 Washington Ave., which is near the corner of Washington and Allen avenues. The restaurant’s last day of business will be July 16.

An employee said Tuesday night that a Taco Bell will be replacing Sala Thai, and the Thai restaurant will not be re-opening in a new location.
