Vivid Japanese eating has a brand new home at ZUMUxDIVE NQ


There’s a time and a place for refined and elegant dining in Manchester – and there are plenty of places where you can find it, if that’s the kind of thing you’re looking for.

But what happens when you want something with a little more oomph thrown into the mix?

This is where ZUMU comes in to pump some much needed energy into your evening.

In case you aren’t in the know, ZUMU is the fabulous Japanese concept which has taken over the kitchen at DIVE NQ in the heart of the Northern Quarter. And they’re cooking up quite the storm.

Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, they are offering an exciting and lively alternative to casual dining in the centre of town featuring not just fantastic food and cheap drinks but a DJ who will be playing fantastic tunes from 8pm until late.

ZUMU really has something to tempt your tastebuds from street food favourites like crisp vegetable tempura and duck gyoza to bao buns bursting at the seams with an array of delicious fillings to beautiful hand-crafted sushi rolls.

There are steaming plates of yakisoba as well as their famous and infinitely popular chicken katsu served with sticky and aromatic Japanese curry sauce and fluffy steamed rice. All this delicious grub is served up until 10pm as well which makes it an excellent start to any evening out on the town.

Wash it all down with something from the extensive menu of drinks from beers, to wine and spirits to classic cocktails.

And it’s safe to say that DIVE NQ has one of the best Happy Hours in town with 2-4-1 cocktails and spirit mixers, £3.50 beers, £10 bottles of wine and £15 bottles of prosecco between 5pm and 10pm every bloody day.

Match all this food and drink up with some live music from DIVE NQ’s resident DJ and you have yourself the perfect recipe for an evening you’ll remember for a long time.

To avoid disappointment, book yourself a table for one of the most electrifying evenings of food, drink and music in town – ZUMU at DIVE NQ.
