About Umezushi

Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:

Nose-to-tail sushi from local experts in cool, railway arch surrounds.

This open-minded sushi parlour with simple décor comes up trumps in the food department with a menu that changes according to availability. Highlights for Confidential’s reviewer, David Blake, were tempura whitebait, frog's legs karage, roasted salmon head, miso marinated sturgeon, Taiwanese pork rice and sets of sushi. These could include hosomaki (four mini rolls), uramaki (reverse rolls), temaki (hand roll), gunkan (two battle ship rolls), nigiri (two pieces on top of a rice ball) or sashimi (raw sliced meat) made with the likes of Welsh Wagyu beef, or O-Toro (fatty tuna). It’s a menu to please the most jaded of diners. Furthermore, Blake notes, it has genuine hidden gem allure: ‘Walk down Deansgate on to Victoria Street with the Cathedral on your right and continue to the arches of the bridge. Umezushi is beneath the bridges and to the left on Mirabel Street. And it’s about the size of your average living room.’ And he means that as a compliment. Wines and beers include lively Japanese Koshu wine, sake and European wines as well as beers like Asahi and Estrella. One of Manchester’s few purveyors of sushi that we’d recommend.

Review by Manchester Confidential's David Blake
The sushi here is bloody delicious. With fresh locally sourced fish delivered every day and an ever-changing selection board, the choice is primarily of a fishy, veggie persuasion but Umezushi has also branched out with a chicken katsu curry and teriyaki mushroom steak for those not attuned to seafood. However, if this is the case, don’t go to a sushi restaurant. Numbskull.
