After undergoing a massive revamp from a curry house to a Thai eatery, Night Market has officially reemerged in Chinatown.

Eater previously reported that owner Mike Tran had announced that the restaurant was set to arrive this week, and now the doors are officially open. The restaurant announced its debut at 9630 Clarewood in a subtle Instagram post, which featured little more than an illuminated “open” sign in the accompanying photo. Over the past few months, Tran has been teasing diners with photos of Thai favorites like duck in red curry and stacks of house-made jerky.

Tran, known for beloved eateries Tiger Den and Mein, closed up shop at Night Market in April, but didn’t disclose why the restaurant needed a new focus. He opened Ohn Korean Eatery in the interim, which has racked up praise for its inventive Korean fare.

Night Market is now open to satisfy any cravings for Thai cuisine, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the week except Monday, when the restaurant is closed.
