The 3 Best Places to Get Vegan Sushi in Manchester!
If you’re looking for some delicious vegan sushi in Manchester you’re in the right place because I’m going to share my top three.
Thankfully it’s not just an avocado maki and a bowl of edamame that’s available to us plant-eaters nowadays. In some cases, as you’ll read below, we have Japanese restaurants offering full vegan menus. Now, with all this choice, our problem is choosing where to go and what to order. But I’m not complaining.
Vegetarian Sushi in Manchester
If you are looking for vegetarian sushi in Manchester this list will be perfect for you too! There’s little difference between vegan and vegetarian sushi. Sometimes there can be egg added, typically in Tamago sushi or maybe some type of mayonnaise, so if it’s vegetarian and doesn’t have either of these it will probably be vegan. However, I suggest you always ask because you don’t know what kind of creative licence they are working with.
So, after doing a lot of research, yum! I can tell you all about the best vegan sushi in Manchester. So, what are we waiting for…let’s get started.
The 3 Best Places for Vegan Sushi in Manchester:
1. Sushi Marvel: The Best All-round Place for Vegan Sushi in Manchester
I love this place! I can’t quite say I love everything about it though, because they’re not a fully vegan sushi restaurant. Hopefully somewhere in Manchester will go fully plant-based soon, but until then, Sushi Marvel is definitely there for your vegan sushi needs. On Sushi Marvel’s menu, they offer about eight different vegan sushi options, plus loads of sides and a couple of rice bowls.
Aside from the food on offer, what I love is that Sushi Marvel doubles up as a place where you could go on a date and spend a couple of hours there or as a simple place to just grab some sushi to go. The friendly staff and their sustainable ethos all come together to offer a memorable sushi experience.
They’re located just outside the city centre in Ancoats. Just a stone’s throw away from the lively Northern Quarter.
2. Cottonopolis: The Coolest Place for Vegan Sushi in Manchester
If you want your vegan sushi eating experience to have a trendy and modern vibe to it, Cottonopolis is, without doubt, the place for you.
They call themselves a ‘lively destination for Asian-inspired menus in a warehouse-style venue with a full bar’. It’s not often you can show off your chopstick skills to a soundtrack provided by a live DJ, but that’s exactly what Cottonopolis offers you the chance to do. They’ve successfully managed to mix together a busy bar with a proper restaurant.
Cottonopolis isn’t a fully vegan restaurant but it is the place that I said has a dedicated plant-based menu, with no less than thirteen dishes and a dessert!
The only negative is that if you want a sushi feast your options are a little bit limited. There’s a maki and a nigiri but that’s all for traditional sushi. That does mean you have eleven more Japanese dishes to experiment with, so I wouldn’t worry too much.
It’s located in the city’s Northern Quarter, you can see exactly where it is on the map here. So if you do decide you want to move on for a few drinks somewhere different, you won’t have to walk far.
3. Yo! Sushi: The Easiest Place to Get Vegan Sushi in Manchester
- Find Yo! Sushi in Manchester Arndale
- Find Yo! Sushi in the Trafford Centre
- Find Yo! Sushi in Piccadilly Station
Yo! are the masters of casual dining. This is why you will often find them plonked in the middle of shopping centres and high streets. Manchester’s main two shopping centres both have a Yo! You’ll find one in the Arndale and one in the Trafford centre, but that’s not all, there’s one in Piccadilly Station too. So, that shows what they’re all about, quick and convenient sushi.
In regards to their vegan offerings, they really are excelling. If you thought thirteen options at Cottonopolis was impressive, Yo! offers a whopping twenty, plus two desserts, maybe even more by the time you’re reading this – take a look at Yo! Sushi’s vegan menu. And if it is all about the sushi for you, you have ten types to choose from. Including my personal favourite, inari tofu!
It might not be the same vibe as Cottonopolis but it’s always busy at Yo! and they do offer a great range. So, depending on what you’re after, it’s easy to say that Yo! is the best place for vegan sushi in Manchester. But, that’s if you’re voting only on the amount of sushi on offer, and you’re not after any fancy frills. Nothing you eat is going to blow your mind, but you’ll still feel like you’ve had a sushi experience.
