Teriyaki Land closes on Auburn Boulevard

By Mike Hazlip—
Teriyaki Land, an area restaurant known for its ever-present “50% off all sushi rolls” banner displayed to a steady stream of passersby on Auburn Boulevard, appears to be out of business.

The restaurant operated out of a small, white building at the intersection of Rollingwood and Auburn Boulevard. The building now sits empty with sunlight filtering through dusty windows into a starkly vacant interior. Nothing but piles of construction debris are left behind, and tables and chairs have been removed.

A regular customer of Teriyaki Land, Dre Thomas, told The Sentinel Wednesday that the owner and his wife closed the restaurant about two weeks ago. Thomas said he lives within walking distance of the shuttered eatery and described the owners as friendly.

Nearby Village Pizza confirmed Teriyaki Land is closed with no plans to reopen. Village Pizza manager Rahman Mashriqi told The Sentinel the owners of Teriyaki Land came into his restaurant say goodbye.

Sentinel staff could not reach the restaurant’s owners for comment. The phone number associated with the restaurant is out of service, and an email was not returned by press time Thursday.

Online reviews posted on Yelp include mixed responses, with both five-star and one-star reviews. Reviewers indicate the restaurant operated throughout the pandemic, offering delivery options.
