Undeterred by a car completely destroying its frontage, a now boarded-up Chinese restaurant in Cardiff is continuing to serve takeaways to locals.

Man Po Takeway had its front window smashed when a car drove right through it last Friday (8 June) at around 10:40pm.

Apparently not put off by the incident, the owners have boarded up the frontage and have posted on social media that they will “continue to trade”.

“We will still continue to trade as the electrics and plumbing is fine however will only be doing deliveries until further nottice (sic.) of the shop front being put back in,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page.

The restaurant has since written the words “Still open, delivery only” along with its phone number on the boards.

According to South Wales police, the driver of the car disappeared before police arrived. A 29-year-old man was later arrested on Saturday morning on suspicion of burglary, breach of restraining order, recall to prison and dangerous driving.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries as a result of the incident. A 32-year-old woman who was inside the restaurant was treated for bruising and a hand injury but has now been discharged from hospital, according to Wales Online.
