DECATUR — The owner of Fuji Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar on Wednesday posted on social media that he's temporarily closing the restaurant "for an unknown period of time."

The move comes a week after the Macon County Health Department revoked the license for the 4292 Prospect Drive​ business. An inspection report showed that there was malfunctioning refrigeration equipment, a prep table that allowed some products to exceed maximum temperatures, “many” flies in the building and a lack of management on site.

Owner Kevin Wong told the Herald & Review last week that it was "obviously a failure on my part."

The business reopened Friday, but on Wednesday, Wong posted on Facebook that the business would close and "we will use this time to fully repair maintenance issues, re-evaluate management, overhaul cleaning workflows and look for solutions."

Wong also posted about his own health issues.

"In February, I became very ill and unable to work. Then, I was re-diagnosed with stage 3 cancer again in March. The management and staff was put into chaos in already turbulent times. At the time I believed that I could still manage the store remotely however I was wrong and broke my promise to the community," he posted. "This community has been wonderful and I am sorry to have disappointed Decatur after the city gave me a second chance."​
