Castle Street & Baltic Market

IZAKAYA Sushi Liverpool was founded by Harry Marquart & Kurt Wilson. They shared a passion for Sushi, Japanese Cuisine and culture but found that it was looked upon to be pretentious and upmarket in Liverpool. They went on to master the art of Japanese cooking, Sushi and to learn more about the Japanese way of life. The name izakaya is a compound word consisting of “i” (to stay) and “sakaya” (sake shop). Izakaya originated from sake shops where customers could stay for drinking in the Edo period (1603-1867). Somewhere Liverpool Sushi lovers should find haven.

Come see us at 4 Castle Street or at our Pop-Up in The Baltic Market from 8th Februry 2018.
