Popular fast-casual Thai eatery Thai Satay was robbed Tuesday night, Feb. 2, per employee Monthichr Chon. The Taste of Nashville restaurant was closed the following day to rectify interior damage but reopened business as usual today. 

According to Chon, the offender(s) shattered a front window in order to break into the Elliston Place locale at some point on the night of Feb. 2. Thai Satay’s installed Point of Sale (POS) Systems, responsible for keeping track of sales and customer data in addition to securing against unauthorized access to electronic payment systems, were damaged during the burglary. Two cash registers were stolen from the scene.

Thai Satay filed a police report Feb. 3 and is currently awaiting further information from the Metro Nashville Police Department regarding the incident, in addition to insurance documentation to account for the damages. 

Junior Noah Barboza heard about the burglary yesterday via Twitter, and noted that he and his peers have all expressed the same goal: to show their support for Satay following the incident.

“Satay has been a constant that I’ve definitely taken for granted,” Barboza said. “It’s become such a big part of the Vandy student experience.”

The Hustler will update this story as we learn more.
