After two years in business, the owners of Bread Basket have decided to close their doors.

The building, at 188 Great George St. in Charlottetown, is vacant, but not for long.

The Noodle House, on Summer Street, is moving into the building Bread Basket occupied.

Fiona Zeng and her husband, William Chow, have owned and operated the Noodle House for just over 10 years.

Customers have suggested the restaurant should expand to accommodate more people, so when Zeng and Chow saw the building on Great George Street was for sale, they knew they had an opportunity, they said.

It’s a better location and nicer on the eyes, said Chow.

Zeng said many local customers, as well as tourists, like the restaurant’s food, but think change is needed.

“I just want to try something new,” she said.

Zeng hopes the new location will be ready for business by the end of October, but not before adding new kitchen equipment, she said.

The Chinese restaurant will serve the same Cantonese and Schezwan style food, but a little differently.

There will be a lunch-time buffet during the day, regular menu items will be available for dinner, said Zeng.

They want to be able to cater to the many people in the area who are in a rush during lunch.

The restaurant will continue to focus on three things, said Zeng.

“Good food, good value and good portions.”

Efforts to reach Bread Basket owners for comments were unsuccessful.
