Sushi Factory Is Replacing Kirin Teppanyaki & Wok in Allston

A short-lived Allston restaurant that featured a mix of Chinese and Japanese dishes has closed, and a new Asian spot is moving in.

According to a source, Kirin Teppanyaki & Wok on Brighton Avenue is no longer in business, with a new place called Sushi Factory planning to open in the space. A check on a licensing board page within the City of Boston website confirms this, and the listing shows the name of the manager for Sushi Factory being Ying Huang, who is apparently the same person who runs the Hi B3ar Ice Cream Roll shop across the street. (As soon as we confirm that it is the same person, we will post an update here.)

Kirin Teppanyaki & Wok first opened last September, replacing Redneck's Roast Beef which had been in the space for more than a decade.

The address for the new Sushi Factory is 140 Brighton Ave, Boston, MA 02134.

[November 16 update: Eater Boston states that Sushi Factory is now open, and that Ying Huang of Hi B3ar Ice Cream Roll shop is indeed behind the place. EB also indicates that this is an all-you-can-eat sushi spot but with a caveat, saying that "while an eater can eat as much as she or he would like, she or he must do so in a span of two hours or less....and one may be subject to a $1 up-charge for every piece of sushi one does not eat."]
