A Chinese restaurant that was not only a beloved place to eat for decades but also a location for lots of filming has closed down.

Goldstone Noodle first opened in Toronto’s Chinatown in 1996, and was known for their BBQ. They also served soup, congee, noodles, rice dishes, curry dishes, seafood, chicken, beef and pork, as well as an array of classic dim sum.

The restaurant was used as the filming location for movies like xXx and Miss Sloane, with the real staff sometimes even standing in.

“After 40 successful years, the management of Goldstone Noodle is retiring,” read a sign posted in the restaurant. “We can’t thank the community enough for supporting us through four decades of deliciousness. Please continue to support local businesses and keep Chinatown thriving!”

Though the restaurant may be gone, at least their scallion ginger oil can be recreated using a recipe Goldstone posted to social media last year.

The last day for Goldstone Noodle was July 7.
