    A small and cosy restaurant. We've heard so much good reviews from friends so we finally visited and we loved it. The quality was great and it made us feel like we were back in Japan. It's the best sushi we've had in the UK. Highly recommend the fatty tuna (both original and seared) . The sushi platter selection was delicious £19-£31. Pork rice was also amazing. Our bill came to around £100 but it was well worth it. Customer service was brilliant and I'm sad to hear that they are closing permanently at the end of the month.

    Before going, expectations were reasonably high, but I certainly didn't expect it to be as fantastic as it was. The sushi was incredibly tasty and fresh, with the tuna uramaki being everyone's favourite. Shout out to the waiter who was friendly and knowledgeable. It's a real shame this place is closing, but what's to come sounds interesting.

    What can I say? 😁👍💞 Excellent food, great service, good choice of both food and drink. No rush, a great place to savour some excellent cuisine.

    Gorgeous food particularly the crab uramaki and octopus sashimi negiri ( tastes slightly smoky ) The waiter was super helpful and very enthusiastic and he clearly wants to assist you in making choices that you will enjoy. sad to here its closing but hopefully a new venue will appear!

    So much better than the usual suspects - you have to pay but to me this really was an authentic Japanese sushi experience - no complaints at all

    I have written this before but the art of Japanese cooking begins with buying the right ingredients and this restaurant definitely managed to do that. The fish was fresh and succulent and not just 'sushi grade' but proper quality fish. Unfortunately this comes at a price and you cannot have one without the other. The problem then for this restaurant is that they exist in a fine dining space but their culinary skills leave a lot to be desired. So for example, the sashimi. Now there are various views as to how to slice the fish. Personally I prefer two thin slices to one thick one., but that is just personal preference However this was the first time to have fish cut diagonally. One end was always thicker than the other so you do not have consistency in the slices and so if taste. Or a nice piece of wagyu, pretty well cooked, perhaps a tad pinker would have been better but for unknown reasons doused in rock salt with a miso sauce as well the first piece was almost inedible. After wiping the salt off, a perfectly acceptable course. But perhaps the biggest shock was the fish soup with scales not taken cleanly off the fish. All of these errors are pretty basic and reduce the quality of the meal. The sushi is pretty good and the Akami maguro was probably the best we have had in the Nirth West if not the whole of England, (but again the size of the rice portion was not consistent) So if you eat here you will meet up with some very authentic Japanese flavours. It is well worth a visit. But... it needs a lot more attention to detail to justify the prices it charges for what will be admittedly some expensive flavours.

    Although the restaurant appearance might not be great from outside the quality of food certainly makes up for it. The vibe is very relaxed and chilled out so you don’t have to dress fancy even though the food is exactly that. It’s definitely one of the best sushi meals I have ever had. It was a special occasion for me and my girl and we savoured every mouthful. We got the 32 piece luxury sushi selection so that is what I would highly recommend. I will definitely be back one day soon.

    Finally I found some amazing authentic Japanese food as it should be done. This place has stayed true to its value and not turned into another pan Asian to suit UK tastebuds. What it has done is create an excellent Japanese restaurant just as you would find on the streets of Japan. Best sushi I’ve had in England. I’ve lived here for 13 years and eat a lot of sushi. Can’t wait til I visit Manchester and here again.

    Intimate restaurant serving fresh sushi and sashimi. A great selection of tuna sashimi from the steak-like akami to the rich and creamy otoro. The hamachi sushi nigiri was also a delight. A great little Japanese thankfully without the distraction of Teppanyaki. Booking in advance is recommended

    My daughter had her final GCSE exam on Friday and we had had an awful week for us as a family. My kids favourite food is sushi and as a treat I managed to get a table for Saturday night. A friend had said it had a great reputation and it certainly lived up to that. Lovely staff that were helpful explaining the menu and the food was excellent. It was a fitting celebration for us all and we look forward to returning.

    The restaurant was a little outside the busy part of the town and it is not easy to find it even when you are on the right street. The restaurant is located under the railway, and for some reasons, the best sushi restaurants often are at a similar location. I had an a la carte sushi and I really appreciated the chef's choice. The quality of fish was impeccable, and much attention has gone to detail. Toro (fatty tuna) is absolutely recommended.

    I've been wanting to try Umezushi for a while and I wasn't disappointed. The restaurant is very small and intimate and service was very good. The menu is very traditional with a focus on the quality of ingredients and an extensive tuna menu. If you're looking for the deep fried creamy sushi rolls of many chain restaurants this maybe isn't the place for you. It's a little on the expensive side but worth it as a special meal.

    This sushi place is a little off the beaten track but is definitely worth the short journey. If the oysters are on the menu they are perfect. Do ask if they’re not on the board. Variety of Tunas is also great to try different styles.

    This is an excellent and high quality sushi experience. I've been to a few sushi places before but this far exceeds everything I've had before. This is very traditional in the menu and doesn't just cater for the "well known" types of sushi. Instead you get to select from a wide range of traditional sushi options. We had a couple of platters between five of us which worked well. The fish options are really great and all ingredients are fresh and high quality. The restaurant itself is small and intimate so it's important to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Service was efficient and friendly and we enjoyed a leisurely lunch without feeling pressured to leave. The place is a bit difficult to find as its off the beaten track and from the outside, looks a bit questionable but dont let that out you off! Highly recommend for good quality traditional sushi.

    Lovely log cabin of a restaurant underneath the arches close to MEN/Victoria Station. We are no experts in Japanese sea food so asked the excellent , friendly servers to recommend some dishes. Great sashimi and sushi and an excellent tuna and chickpea curry. Washed down with a great bottle of Italian rose and a small flask of sake. All for 90 quid.Highly recommended. In a city where Spanish and Italian restaurants tend to dominate this a great alternative.

    Fantastic food. I have waited a long time to return and it lived up to expectation! Service is understated, food fresh as ever, we had the pork rice because it stood out last time, and the same Rose wine as it was so memorable and delicious, had tuna and chickpea curry, (never having had tuna in a curry before) and of course it was delicious!!

    We have been wanting to visit Umezushi for a while and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The quality of the fish was amazing and the staff were very friendly. We had the premium sashimi platter and a sushi platter and there was a good variety of flavours. The restaurant is very small but that was a bonus, as it made it feel more special and intimate. I can’t eat gluten and the staff were very accommodating and even gave me some gluten free soy sauce. We also had a bottle of sake which was delicious. The staff gave us a sample of plum sake at the end of the meal which was lovely. Will definitely be returning!

    What a real find, totally beautiful food the wagyu beef, Taiwanese pork and sushi and of course the desserts, chocolate fondant and plum soaked saki pineapple, were all so lovely. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Its a small intimate restaurant so you need to book, to avoid missing out, so glad we called.
