Pan-Asian foodies ZUMU move into the Northern Quarter this week to take over the kitchen at Dive NQ.

They’ll be serving up Asian-inspired cuisine with a street food edge, building the pop-up menu around popular favourites served at their other restaurants.

The full menu is still yet to be revealed, but options will include handmade nigiri and maki sushi, yakitori skewers, stuffed fluffy bao buns and everyone’s favourite, katsu curry.

Dishes will be available to enjoy both inside and out on Dive’s terrace, weather permitting, and will be served in waves with diners encouraged to share small plates between their tables.

The brand has two successful Manchester restaurants already – a Japanese sushi and robatayaki grill in Hale, and a smaller sushi kitchen in Wilmslow.

The Wilmslow restaurant came first and is well loved by locals. A testament to the fact is its coveted 5-star rating on TripAdvisor. Not that you can tell everything from TripAdvisor.

ZUMU’a founder spent over 20 years working in the sushi industry and various Japanese restaurants before opening up ZUMU, and they certainly know their stuff.

Describing themselves as authentic but not traditional, great care is taken in sourcing ingredients and in the presentation of their dishes.

Book in now to try it for yourself.
