Thom Pham's Wondrous Azian Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis closed Tuesday, according to the restaurant's website.

Minneapolis City Pages reports phone calls to the business were unanswered and its social media accounts were shutdown hours before a message appeared on their website:

"Wondrous Azian Kitchen is now closed. Thank you to all our friends, family and guests for your support and love. We look forward to seeing everyone at Azia Market!"

Pham's other restaurant, Azia Market Bar & Restaurant, is reportedly set to open next month, WCCO reports. The restaurant replaces Pham's previous hit, Azia, that closed after a dispute with the landlord.

Pham also owns and operates Thanh Do in St. Louis Park.
