Hull restaurant institution Ray’s Place suddenly reopens after shock closure

One of Hull’s best-loved Indian restaurants has reopened after it closed suddenly.

Ray’s Place in Princes Avenue has been part of the food and drink community for the past 25 years, and it reopened its doors on Wednesday night for good.

Mr Ahmed, the current chef, who has worked at Ray’s Place for 25 years, said: “We decided to reopen again after being sent all the loves and wishes from the people of Hull.

“We will be running off the same menu at the moment, and we may change things in the future.

“At the moment we just want to get up-and-running before start doing anything differently.

“It is the same Ray’s Place everyone has loved and known.”

Fans of the Indian restaurant were left shocked when the venue suddenly closed in October 2017, after the blinds were down and the lights were turned off on what would have been a usually busy Saturday night.

The Indian restaurant was best known for its late night offerings of curries and accompaniments, and the restaurant has confirmed it will be opening until 3am on weekends and up until midnight for the rest of the week.

It will continue to offer a “bring your own alcohol” option, which was a hit with customers throughout the decades, and the famous red décor remains untouched.

“We opened on Wednesday with a couple of people just to get ourselves back into it, and we will be open every night,” said Mr Ahmed.

“We want to get settled in and welcome everyone back.”
