Lovely lunch, no complaints about the food or service but the Manager needs to stop being so defensive!

Having read previous reviews, the only thing that would put me off going back is the Manager's defensive comments, bordering on rude to the customers who are giving their opinion. Yes you will get some dissatisfied customers and some who are drunk and rude, but the majority are polite and honest... read more

A lovely place to sit outside on a sunny day like we had. Just selected a few small dishes for lunch which came staggered and which were all delicious. Good service and nice atmosphere

Really very good food, and nice bright buzzy atmosphere. Always feels like a celebration going on. Recommend bcoming a Moshimo member and getting 1/2 price on a Monday and Tuesday

I've ordered pulled pork ramen noodles. The dish arrived after a fair bit of waiting and I was surprised to find a small spoonful amount of pork. I complaint to the waiter and I got informed that they give up to 50 grams of pork with this dish and that the actual taste comes from the broth itself. Basically, I... More

Had an excellent meal here, great waiter too. Lovely buzz about the place and it was a Tuesday evening! Obviously a popular destination and I can see why. Sushi was fresh and well made, some excellent choices and better variety than Yo! Hot dishes were excellent, the soft shell crab was really nicely done, as was the squid in a... More

Ate there last night. Food had gone downhill. Had cod cheeks they were very undercooked. The staff member who was lovely said they did not look right and took off the bill without question. They did however make me feel ill. Other items were average at best. I used to love this place but things have changed.

I went here with my Son (16-08-2015). We were the first to dine after arriving at 12pm. Staff nice and attentive but not enough of them as had to wait 30 minutes for one dish. Exterior and internal surroundings need a polish up, doubt we will return as Yo-Sushi is better.

I hadn't been to this restaurant before but it was highly recommended to me. Sunday lunch wasn't as busy as I had anticipated but it made for a lovely relaxing lunch venue. The food was exceptional with wonderful taste. Each dish was beautifully presented and very inexpensive. They had a lunch-time special on too. The service was also fantastic and... More

We took a friend here on Monday evening since she was going back home to Finland the next morning and wanted to have proper sushi (there aren't many good sushi places in Finland, especially outside of Helsinki). It was our third time here, and we decided to take our friend here instead one of the other Japanese style places because... More

My husband and I go to Moshimo regularly (a bit too regularly sometimes!) and love it, the salmon sashimi is usually lovely, I don't find it warm as with a previous review. The teriyaki pork belly is worth coming for alone as is the chicken kang jung. Service is great and I love the chilled sake. Atmosphere varies its better... More

MOSHIMO, Owner at Moshimo, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. Yes, we agree: MOSHIMO is indeed better when we're busy and buzzy! You can never come too regularly, by the way. That's simply not possible :) All the best, Nicky More
