POPULAR Japanese restaurant, Sushi Tei, ceased operations in Malaysia today.

In a Facebook post, Sushi Tei Malaysia informed that they “will cease operations starting June 19” and the Facebook page will “no longer carry Sushi Tei contents and/or have any links to Sushi Tei”.

The post ends with “We regret any inconveniences caused and we thank you for your continuous support all these years”.

Netizens expressed their sadness towards the sudden closure under the Facebook post. Some commented that they wished they knew about the closure earlier because they could go for one final meal.

According to Sushi Tei’s Facebook page, they had outlets at 3 Damansara in Selangor; Cheras Leisure Mall and The Gardens Mall in Kuala Lumpur; Gurney Plaza, Sunway Carnival Mall, and Suria Sabah Mall in Sabah.

Fortunately for those living in the Northern region, Sushi Tei Penang clarified on their Facebook page that the closure however does not include them.

So for those of you craving for Sushi Tei, you can head to their Gurney Plaza and Queensbay Mall outlet in Penang or their Ipoh Parade outlet.
