SINGAPORE - Just one week after news that Japanese restaurant Hashida Sushi at Mandarin Gallery has closed, it is announcing its comeback.

Hashida Sushi's chef-owner Kenjiro Hashida will now run his sushi restaurant business with Cloud Eight, a newly incorporated subsidiary of lifestyle group LifeBrandz.

An announcement on the SGX board on Thursday (June 21) said that new sushi restaurants will open in Singapore, San Francisco and Tokyo in the "near future".

There was no information on the location of the restaurants.

LifeBrandz was established in 2001 and listed on the SGX in 2004. Brands under the group include fintech company Finesse Digital, travel business Takumi Holidays, and Mulligan's bar in Thailand.

A new Japanese restaurant, Sushi Ayumu, has taken over the space vacated by Hashida Sushi. It opened on Thursday.
