Miyabi Sushi, a sushi restaurant at 253 Church St. in San Francisco, has permanently closed, according to Hoodline. The property is listed for lease by Maven Properties. Listing agent Haley Klein confirmed the closure to Hoodline reporter Steven Bracco, who also noted that the restaurant’s fixtures and furniture had been removed.

Miyabi Sushi was known for “friendly service, reasonable prices, and ample seats by its window, which looked out onto the bustling intersection,” and was “cozy, reliable, and always-bustling,” wrote Eater.

“I’ve been coming to this amazing sushi restaurant for over two decades and this place never ceases to amaze me with the freshness of their fish selection and the skill in which it’s crafted,” wrote one customer on Miyabi’s Yelp page. “They are family owned and operated and they treat you like you’re part of that family. The sweetest people in the world.”

The sushi spot joins other Castro restaurants and bars that have closed during the pandemic, including Nizario’s Pizza, German cafe Mauerpark, and 45-year-old nightclub Badlands. It also joins the city’s list of sushi restaurants to close since March, including Russian Hill’s Kinjo, the Financial District’s Mikaku, Bernal Heights’ ICHI Sushi and the Marina’s Naked Fish.

SFGATE reached out to Miyabi Sushi for comment but did not hear back by time of publication.
