90-year-old Phoenix Chinese restaurant shutting down Sunday
PHOENIX – The Sing High Chop Suey House opened in downtown Phoenix in 1928. On Sunday, the venerable family-owned restaurant will shut its doors.
After 90 years in business, the Chinese restaurant announced in July that it would be closing at the end of September.
According to a Facebook post, Sing High has been located in three buildings within four blocks of each other during its storied history.
It’s been on Madison Street between Central and First avenues for 37 years in a building that was recently sold.
After news of the impending closure came out, a customer asked the owners for permission to write a farewell message on a restaurant wall. The request was granted, and other customers also joined in, filling the walls with their memories.
However, this might not be Sing High’s last goodbye. An August post indicated that the owners were exploring the possibility of relocating, although nothing was “concrete.”
“Regardless of how things turn out, we are proud of our 90 year history and proud to have you and your families as faithful customers!” the post said, telling fans to check the Facebook page for developments.
