Authentic simplicity at its best. Best Japanese food in Manchester; a tiny, teeny family run restaurant recommended by the Michelin Guide, yet incredibly down to earth and excellent value for money. We shared prawn gyoza and chicken katsu for starters. The prawn gyoza....were plump prawns veiled in thin, stretchy, translucent dough. The chicken katsu was satisfyingly crunchy and succulent. I...

Yuzu provides a simple atmosphere you would expect to get in an average Japanese restaurant meant for an every day nice quick meal, not a special or exceptional day. The food was definitely Japanese and something that a friend would have cooked informally to another friend. Looking at it so, it would not be a little bit of a problem.... More

Nothing much surprised with the taste after I ordered a lunch set Ten Don. I think is too pricey for the foods there.

Tuesday night, solo booking (reservation made on advice of other reviewers). Had to wait around for someone to show me to my seat, there were two waiters who were ran off their feet. I ordered a small sashimi mori - didn't have scallops which the menu said it should have. Otherwise sashimi were average. Tuna wasn't as sweet as I... More

Pre-theatre meal of prawn Gyoza and Salmon teriyaki with Asahi dark beer (a first for me) beautifully cooked & served. Must book ahead as small venue. Never got chance to practice my recently aquired Nihon-go skills.

And the food wasn't bad. Completely ambivalent about everything else here. No harm done, no fond memories.

I came to Yuzu after a trip to Kyoto, Japan, having found no truly authentic Japanese restaurants in the North of England. Yuzu was my first experience of Japanese-style dining in England, bearing any resemblance to traditional Japanese cuisine, and I was not disappointed. With no sushi or ramen on the menu, Yuzu offers mainly donburi, udon and sashimi dishes,... More

We booked the Yuzu based on other reviews and was looking forward to visiting on a weekend stay in Manchester. The restaurant was small but cozy with bench style tables. Although arriving at 8 in the evening we were surprised quite a few of the dishes and drinks that we wanted were no longer available which curtailed our selection. Service... More

Visited here with my sister on a Thursday evening after a personal recommendation form a few friends. The whole meal was stunning and the staff were lovely - we will be back in a heartbeat - can't recommend it highly enough!

As soon as you walk in you feel you are back in Japan. From the decor to the quirky staff Yuzu feels very different to the typical Manchester restaurant. It's small, smells a little of 'cooking', and table layout is odd too. Staff seem all over the place and service is slow BUT this was one of the best Manchester... More
