Splash of Thai in Somerville, NJ?

Looks like the Somerville/Bridgewater area is about to lose its second Indian restaurant in less than a year. Alishaan on Route 202 East closed and is rapidly morphing into an IHOP, and now it seems Agra Palace in Somerville has gone.

I was driving along Main Street this morning and it seemed to me that the windows of Agra were boarded up. There is also a sign nearby saying something about Splash of Thai (Westfield) opening soon so I think the two observations are connected (trying to take this in over a 2-3 second time frame was a bit of a challenge!).

If this is all true, I'm wondering just how many Thai restaurants Somerville can support. With Splash of Thai, there will be four Thai places within a few minutes walk of one another (although Origin may not qualify as 100% Thai). In addition, there are at least three more within a 5-10 minute drive.

I'm guessing but I would say over half the restaurants in Somerville/Bridgewater (not including coffee shops, snack bars, etc.) are either Italian or Thai.
