Unfortunately we discovered that the restaurant is closed due to a fire it seems from the outside. It is suggested that the restaurant opens again on September 3th but we doubt this. Anyone knows more information whether she re-opens?

Heard Jai Fai is closed unexpectedly until Sep 3. Can someone confirm if this is true? Our concierge at our hotel communicated that to us at the last minute so just want to confirm.
