Jacky Chan Sushi is moving to the old Sakura spot at 7820 E. Harry.

Its last day at 4910 E. Central will be Oct. 28. Owner Jacky Tran says he plans to reopen in the new, much larger space by Dec. 1. Tran, the longtime sushi chef at Kwan Court, also had worked for his brother at Sakura when it was open in the space he’s about to take over. Sakura closed there in late 2013 then reopened at 605 W. Douglas in Delano.

Tran, whose nickname is Jacky Chan, opened Jacky Chan Sushi in April 2014 in the former Sit at Thai Express space, which has room for only about 26 diners.

The new space, he said, will allow him to give his customers more room and create a bit of a sushi sports bar feel. He plans to install several television sets and will air sporting events.

Stay tuned for updates on the move.
