Tokyo Lobby in San Gabriel is closing on Sunday, March 17. An employee confirmed that the Japanese restaurant on 927 E. Last Tunas Dr. will be in "total shut down" and not be relocated.
The restaurant is closing due to a lack of customers, according to the employee. The opening of the 168 Market, a neighboring grocery store that has claimed a majority of the restaurant's parking, has made it difficult for customers to visit the location.
Tokyo Lobby's rent has also increased by about $60,000 annually, according to Chowhound. While the restaurant has been trying to cut expenses and even closes one day a week, it will now have to close completely.
