The Short North is losing a long-standing option for Thai cuisine.

Yesterday, Nida’s Thai on High announced that it will permanently close the doors of its Short North restaurant later this month. The eatery, which is located at 976 N. High St., will close for good on Dec. 17.

Nida’s Sushi, which is located in the North Market, will remain open, and will continue to offer many of the signature Thai dishes from Nida’s Thai on High.


“Fourteen years have passed, and we are grateful beyond words for the recognition and support we have received. The outcome has exceeded our hopes and expectations. It is extremely difficult to call it quits, but Thai food is not easy to make and make well,” a statement posted to the eatery’s social media pages reads. “Given the challenges, especially at a time when staffing is awfully hard to maintain, the moment has arrived for this chapter in our lives to end. We do not want to fall short of what our guests deserve and have come to expect by being unable to live up to our vision”

Owned by Nida Perry, a native of Thailand, and her partner Chris Perry, Nida’s Sushi first opened in the North Market in 2001. Nida’s Thai on High followed in 2008.
