If you've driven by Thai Rama on Camelback Road in the last month, you might have noticed the restaurant looks a bit different. That's because a cab crashed into the restaurant's dining room last month, causing it to have to temporarily close until reconstruction is completed.

The restaurant, which is located at 1221 West Camelback Road, is family-owned and operated and has been a neighborhood favorite for years.

According to the time stamp on the video below, which was posted on the Thai Rama Facebook page, the accident happened at 7:37 a.m. on Tuesday, April 22. Fortunately the restaurant was empty when what appears to be a Discount Cab plows into the dining room.

Keep an eye on the Thai Rama Facebook page for news about when they'll be able to reopen.
