Description: Moshimo is one of Brighton's most popular restaurants, with a fiercely loyal customer base: 35% of its customers dine at the restaurant at least once a week. They visit regularly because they know the staff, and know how good the food is.The restaurant's 50% MOSHIMO MONDAYS & TUESDAYS, where members receive 50% off their food, is a sell-out. Check the restaurant out in the summer, when the entire front of the restaurant dramatically slides open like a shoji screen.Moshimo is behind FISHLOVE, the global photographic campaign to end over-fishing, has received a PETA award for its promotion of restorative eating, and its homemade teriyaki sauce is a sensation.......but don't it from us - go to our Facebook page to see what our regulars have to say.

It wasn't that clear on the menu that they were able to provide gluten free options so I was a little nervous, but the waitress advised me just to ask for whatever I liked the look of and then the chef will either make a gluten free version or let you know to make another choice. This seemed to work... More

Me and my partner visited Moshimo on a bank holiday weekend it was fairly busy, and we were seated promptly. As a vegan, there was quite a few options to choose from, clearly marked on the menu, this was the one reason I chose this restaurant. The food was beautiful, we ordered the vegan bento box, one faroes, dumplings and... More

I really love sushi and thought the environmental friendly credentials plus broad menu sounded great. Service was good, atmosphere was nice although the music was a bit jarring (old R&B). We ordered mostly off the conveyor belt, aside from getting a miso soup (slightly too salty) and some gyoza (okay). Unfortunately we noticed that a lot of the salmon sashimi/nigiri... More

We visited Moshimo on a little family break away with 2 young children. They had never experienced Japanese food before & I was very excited, we also had a 25% off voucher cloud code making it excellent value. We ordered fillet beef, sushi platter & a tempura platter with some little dishes off the revolving tray & it was AWESOME!... More

Such nice sushi and atmosphere and staff! It's a shame the prices are not student-friendly because it's the best sushi in Brighton!

Pretty good food. Not so good service. A little surly treatment from our waiter. However, nice to have the doors open
