Who doesn't love Asian cuisine? From steaming bowls of ramen, to juicy bao buns, sticky skewers to perfectly rolled sushi, there's a blossoming love of Asian cuisine that is far from slowing down. In recent years, diners have moved away from Westernised takes on Asian food and moved towards more authentic tastes. People are starting to see not only how tasty it is when prepared authentically, but how varied and healthy it can be. 

The UK is also discovering the joys of a street food style of dining; they're smaller dishes that have been freshly prepared, flash cooked and when enjoyed in a restaurant, delivered to the table in waves. Forget the traditional style of choosing one main meal each, now you can sample many tasty morsels, whilst sharing with your family or friends. 

Zumu provides diners with an authentic Asian street food experience, just indoors. The guys at Zumu have already established successful Sushi restaurants in Wilmslow and Hale aimed at delivering authentic, but not traditional, tastes of Japanese cuisine. With their sights set on the northern quarter, they decided to make DIVE NQ the home of their next venture. After opening in 2017, Dive NQ has established itself as one of the big hitters in the northern quarter's nightlife scene. Now they're revamping their casual dining menu into something a little extra special. 

And it sounds like it's going to be quite the partnership: 

"Dive NQ have joined forces with Zumu, who will be cooking up a storm with a Dive NQ kitchen takeover. Serving Asian influenced cuisine with a street food vibe! Available both inside & on the outdoor BBQ!

The team behind the massively successful Zumu sushi restaurants in Wilmslow and Hale have designed a specially crafted menu for the Northern Quarter.

The vibe will be different to that found in Zumu’s existing restaurants, adopting the relaxed atmosphere of the Northern Quarter with their Zumu Street Food menu with high quality, tasty food, in a relaxed environment.
