Spicy Mina Status?

I tried going to Spicy Mina for lunch last month, only to find it closed (without any signs). I figured it was just temporary since I've found it randomly shuttered in the past, but some posts from last month seem to question whether it's been shut down for good. Anybody know any details?

          I'm hoping this is a month off trip. Seems they closed in early August so that mark is fast approaching. My fingers are crossed

      2. I have to say, Spicy Mina is the restaurant about which I have the most mixed feelings of any restaurant in the entire city. On good days, Mina cooked me some of the best meals I've ever had. The saag, the mustard fish - I'm sure you're all aware. But there were some "off" days when the food nearly inedible. I could never figure out what what accounted for inconsistency. At a certain point it was just so hit or miss that we stopped going.

          I've had the dreaded off day too, but I must get lucky b/c it's only happened twice in 3 years of continued patronage. And boy when they're on...she's on.

          I want my Dal Fry :(
