The doors at the restaurant have been locked and the lights turned off.

Iron Stone Hibachi & Sushi has been closed this week at the Belmont Chase shopping center in Ashburn and it appears it might be permanent.

The Burn heard from diners who said the restaurant wasn’t opened on Thursday. We went by today and, sure enough, the doors were locked and it was dark inside during hours they are normally open. No one answered at the restaurant’s phone number and there’s been no response so far to messages sent via social media and email. We also reached out to a rep for the shopping center but haven’t heard back.

Employees at nearby businesses say they had been hearing rumors that Iron Stone was closing and they don’t believe it reopened after New Year’s.

It’s always possible that they are closed due to an equipment problem or personal emergency and will re-open, but there are no messages to this effect on the front door, on social media or on the restaurant’s website. Iron Stone Hibachi & Sushi originally opened in March 2017.

    There are too many sushi competitors in the area, probably will see more of this happening.

    I love this place. Actually tried to eat there today only to find the doors closed and lights off. Hope they re-open!

    Not enough sushi places. I’m guessing Belmont chase rent is too high!

    We tried to go there for dinner last night and were so disappointed it was closed! We, too, looked for some kind of notice on the door. Nothing. It’s a mystery.

    The parking in that area is horrendous, which is pretty much the case in many Loudoun County retail centers.

    I think the original owners sold the place last year because there was a whole new staff working there when we are there last. Also the decor had changed. The sushi wasn’t as good during our last visit. Want a real story? Find out why the parking at Belmont Chase is so bad that no one wants to go there on weekend nights! Ridiculous to have so few parking spaces for so many restaurants.

    Agreed, parking in that area is awful.

    The restaurant is officially closed, which is unfortunate, because they had the best sushi in the area. I saw the notice on the door last week. I must agree about the lack of parking for the area. Far too many restaurants for the limited number of parking spaces.
