Longtime Downtown Chinese restaurant Ho-Toy has closed after 64 years.

The restaurant, at 11 W. State St., has served wide-ranging classic Chinese and Thai dishes to Columbus residents for over six decades.

Another longtime restaurant, 94th Aero Squadron, will join Ho-Toy when the aviation-themed restaurant closes this summer after 43 years.

Ho-Toy has no social media presence; a sign on the restaurant's door simply reads, "Restaurant is closed. Thank you for [your] support."

A call to the restaurant noted the number had been changed.

Ho-Toy originally opened at 33 E. Town St. in 1959 as one of the city's first Chinese restaurants. In 1980, the restaurant moved to its W. State Street location, an unassuming space in a former Burger King.
