Myrtle Beach Restaurant Closed
Thai Cuisine II at 4505 Socastee Blvd., in Socastee Plaza has closed. The restaurant was first opened by Parinya Popra in 2007 as Supannahong. In November 2010 Supannahong earned a B rating on its health and safety inspection from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, and that score was published here on MyrtleBeachRestaurantNews.com. In May 2011, Popra changed the name to Thai Cuisine II. On Oct. 13 of this year Thai Cuisine II received a score of 74 from DHEC, and on that inspection it was indicated that the "Facility must attend training prior to next routine inspection."
