The owner of Mokja, Daniel An, announced on social media on February 26th that the restaurant will close after the dinner service on Thursday, March 3rd. The restaurant has been sold to an unnamed buyer.
The Korean restaurant opened at 9 North Main Street in Ambler in April of 2020, just after the pandemic struck.
Below is the text of the announcement:
Today I have a bittersweet announcement to make. Mokja will have it’s final service Thursday March 3rd. I know this is a bit of short notice but due to making the sale finalized with the new owner I did not want to make the announcement prematurely. We will be open Monday -Thursday for lunch and dinner 11:30-3//5-8:30 . We will be running a special all week as an appreciation for all of our customers who have supported us since we have opened.
I want to thank ambler as a community for welcoming me as a new restaurant owner. I write this with a heavy heart as I reflect on all the wonderful experiences I have had meeting many guests who have walked into these doors. I am lucky enough to have made friendships with some of my regulars who were like family to me. It’s been a crazy 2 years that I will never forget and I have learned so much and gained invaluable experiences. Thank you all for supporting me through the good and bad. I will always be grateful to those who have constantly wished us well and I do not regret a thing. I hope to one day come back bigger and better but for now I think it’s time to move on for a bit and focus on my family and future .
