Hanoi Hannah was all ready to get a twin restaurant in Elwood. Unfortunately there has been a hold up. The team has announced the expansion has been put on ice because the site originally chosen is not the right fit.

In a statement, director Simon Blacher says, “We are dedicated to opening an Elwood Hanoi Hannah, but it is important to find the right site. We continue to be on the look out for the perfect place and hope we can deliver on this soon.”

The team behind the group of Windsor restaurants, Hanoi Hannah, Saigon Sally and Tokyo Tina, announced it had secured the Elwood site in July last year. It held a public vote to decide which of the three restaurants would be replicated in the new site. Hanoi Hannah was the winner.
