A Chinese buffet restaurant has closed its doors to customers for the final time.

Aroma, in Charter Way, Braintree, which closed on Sunday evening, is expected to be replaced by a branch of the American chain restaurant TGI Friday’s.

The restaurant had been trading in administration since last March.

TGI Friday’s has applied for new signs to be put in place at the unit.

It has pledged to employ 30 full-time and 15 part-time staff at the branch.
