Violence closes recently reopened Indianapolis restaurant

Fast Wok announces closure – News 8 at 11

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A popular Indianapolis restaurant said Friday night in a social media post that it has closed down “for good” after reopening for two days.

Fast Wok Chinese and Thai Food, located at 10116 E. Washington St., announced on its Facebook account Friday night that it will be closing its doors for good after numerous police calls and incidents, including an alleged gun incident.

Fast Wok’s owner, Bungon Nettles, suffered a stroke in 2022, which forced the restaurant to shutdown for a year. The restaurant reopened on Wednesday to overwhelming community support, with many customers waiting in long lines to buy food. In the first two days since its reopening, the restaurant has had two broken front doors, five police calls, and several threats of violence.

No one has suffered injuries, but the restaurant said Nettles no longer feels safe for her customers, staff, and family.
