Katana Teppanyaki & Sushi closes across from Lenox Square

Katana Teppanyaki & Sushi, which opened across from Lenox Square nearly five years ago, closed over the weekend. 

Ownership released a statement regarding the closure to the AJC: 

Katana Teppanyaki & Sushi closed its doors after dinner service on Saturday, June 29 following more than four and a half years in business. The ownership team including Mali Hu will turn their focus solely to its current concept Monkey 68 in Roswell and the forthcoming Monkey 68 Kitchen & Bar, coming to Alpharetta later this summer. Katana thanks everyone for their loyal patronage over the last few years, and is looking forward to serving everyone at its Monkey 68 concepts. 

Katana opened in 2014 at 3345 Lenox Road NE, taking over the former Truffles restaurant space in Buckhead.

The two-part restaurant layout featured a sushi bar on one said and teppanyaki dinners on the other. In addition to signature and classic sushi rolls, the menu included hot and cold starters, plus main course items.

Hu opened Monkey 68 in Roswell at the end of 2016. Monkey 68 Kitchen & Bar is slated to open in Alpharetta later this summer.

Hu also previously owned The One Sushi in Brookhaven.
