Diamond Plaza Food Court (Plaza Walk) Closed?

Plaza Walk, the food court at the back of Diamond Plaza off Fullerton Road, appears to be closed. The doors are locked, and while it's possible they're just closed for the day, the restaurants are no longer listed on the electronic billboard above the building entrance like they used to be. They actually had a good lineup here--101 Noodle Express, Flavor of Beijing (a nice little Beijing style eatery), Canaan, and a recently opened Shanghai place. Also, Vanille, the pastry shop in front, is clearly gone. Sad commentary on this particular retail property if even 101 Noodle Express can't make it there.

  1. I went about a month ago and only 101 Noodle Express was still there. Did you try the back entrance? Crazy that they would close since the place always had people eating there.

    1. Stopped in Saturday. All were open save the vacated place on the right side. Shanghai Snack House, Tea Eggs, tea place and one other still operating.

      New Vietnamese place open in front of mall.

        And, yes, I now realize I was at entirely the wrong food court! Ah well, I'm still learning my way around RH. Apologies for that botch.

          Yes, the one you went to was the one that previously fooled me by closing en masse on Tuesdays.

            I've got it sorted now, Diamond on Fullerton versus the one I went in on Colima. I don't know what was I doing posting at 1:50AM after the drive back. My comprehension skills fall precipitously after Midnight, much in the manner my typing skills suffer when using a small keyboard (as evidenced by typos and spacing issues).

            Rowland Heights definitely beats the western SGV as far as food courts.

      2. I stopped by today and there were no restaurants open. The doors were opened for the phone shop. The pastry shop in front was dismanteled. The signage for any food count places are gone. The only ones that looked like a possible were 101 Noodle Express and the Chinese place on the far side, but iffy. All closed today at 3PM.

        I really wanted the beef rolls at 101 Noodle Express.

          Was here last weekend and was shocked to see the entire food court was shut down. In the front area, the Chinese bakery showed no signs of ever having been open. Perhaps two Chinese tchotchke shops were open in the front area, and I couldn't help but wonder why. The rest of the shopping center seemed to be doing great. New Capital was doing a brisk business. But the Plaza Walk? Depressing. I wonder what happened?

            Wait, what? You didn't eat at Kula?

              I'm confused by your reply as I made no mention of where we did or did not eat!
