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.

Just returned from date here and we both had the WORST experience. On a busy Saturday evening at 8pm, we started with a very long wait to even be acknowledged by the host, no eye contact, a seemingly untrained and overwhelmed staff, slow service, and dirty piles of dishes stacked all over the bar... the place was covered with dirty...

I took the tasting menu. 12 small portions. Very good with a great variety. The only portion a bit off was tuna sashimi, as the tuna pieces were not of high quality. The price was 25 pounds including sake. Very nicely priced. I can recommend. Also situated nice near pub area.

Very busy, there is always a line but it moves pretty fast and definitely worth the wait. Invest in a Moshimo members card for 50% off Mondays and Tuesdays - a huge value. Add a tempura platter and yakitori platter to your sushi for a nice variety.

We came here for a change from yo sushi and were not disappointed! The exterior and interior are aesthetically quite unique and it is very clean. Upon arrival they were confused over our reservation and did not understand my boyfriends' name, which was a bit frustrating but they gave us a nice table anyway. We had to wait ages to... More

I have been eating at MoshiMoshi and then MoshiMo for many years. The first time they introduced the 50% off and then 25% off, it was going to be for a limited time. Clearly it worked and so it is semi-permanent. Unlike the reviewer before me who was so appalled at being told to buy a new card, I think... More

Ate here with some friends who visited from Russia - we waited almost an hour to be seated as the queue was quite long and tables were not being cleared up very fast which is the ONLY reason I am not giving a 5* review. Food was great, service was great, ambiance was great. The staff were really friendly and... More

Thank you for you kind comments, and yes - unfortunately - there is a long queue, especially on Mondays and Tuesdays when Moshimo members receive 50% off their food bill. It's not because our poor staff are slow at clearing tables, however. It's because we are very, very popular for the reasons you so eloquently give. Hope to see you... More

**ONLY TRIED TAKE-AWAY** Prices are really really good and you can choose between lots of boxes. Sushi is really tasty and staff always friendly and very nice. The place looks really good, amazing atmosphere. Maybe they should dicrease the price of the steamed white rice, 2,40£ for a little box? it's too much...

Thank you, Eleonora, for your nice review. Hope to see you again soon! Nicky PS Will have a look at cost of rice, but I suspect it's what we need to charge for something like this. More

Reading your review I was expecting to see five stars, but in many ways I'm glad it's four: it makes your review somehow more honest and considered - and, of course, reminds us that there's always room for improvement! Thank you for this. Wishing you well, Nicky co-owner More

From reading your review, may I assume you came on a Monday or Tuesday, when we do our famous 50% MOSHIMO Madness deal? The queue does get very long, but that's not because our staff are slow - it's because these days are so popular and we do get incredibly busy.... but apologies nonetheless: we are normally quite able to...
