One of Manchester’s favourite sushi restaurants has revealed it will be opening a new site on Bridge Street in Manchester city centre.

Sushi Marvel, widely considered to be one of the ‘best sushi joints in Manchester’, will move into the former Exclsve Bar & Eatery this summer.

Leaving its Oldham Road branch behind on 2 July, the team will venture into pastures new as they join the likes of Crazy Pedro’s, Dishoom, MUSU, and the soon-to-open Juice Box store at their new city centre location.

Described as casual Japanese sushi for ‘serious sushi lovers’, since opening their first Chorlton deli in 2017 owner Katie Lau and business partner Kevin Chiu have only seen the business grow.

Expanding to a tiny spot in Ancoats not long after, the kitchen’s marvellous sushi dishes definitely lived up to their name – earning the eatery reams of fans.


Serving up everything from inside-out uramaki to hand-rolled nigiri and temaki, Sushi Marvel has also earnt itself a stellar reputation for offering some premium Otoro cuts of blue fin tuna and high-grade wagyu beef.

At the Ancoats eatery, desserts were on offer too with mochi ice cream a favourite amongst Sushi Marvel’s fans.


The move over to Bridge Street will see the start of a new chapter for the business, with the original Chorlton deli now closed and the Ancoats branch soon to follow suit.
