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.

This is the first time I've been back since it changed its name from Moshi Moshi. Food is excellent and prices are reasonable. It's also ethically sourced which is great. Service was a bit slow but ok. It's definitely one of the better places in Brighton for Japanese. I've been to Japan but I didn't find it particularly authentic -... More

Having visited Japan I have to say that this place was bang on.. Great food done to perfection I've not had such a fun evening in a long while.. Sashimi beef was perfection, aubergine cooked so well. I really can't fault this place and it's not really even that expensive. Staff very friendly and knew what everything was which is... More

I'm so over this place. I have been a member here since it first opened, but the customer service just gets worse and worse. When I arrived last night the restaurant was half empty. I asked for a booth, but was told I couldn't have one as it was there busy night and that we would have to eat at... More

I think the best thing to do here is to copy the dialogue we had on Facebook with this customer: MOSHIMO: Dear Phil, I'm sorry to read your comments. If you are a regular customer, you'll know that we have to be careful about keeping booths for groups of three or more, as we get very busy, especially on our... More

A Japanese friend was in town last week, and despite 'going native' for her entire trip around the UK, she was curious to discover what sushi might be like outside of Japan. So as to give the best account of ourselves as possible I took her to Moshimo. I myself am pescatarian, for ethical and health reasons, and I was... More

Thank you for this. Yes, we've had quite a few customers from Japan dine with us recently, and I'm glad to say they all said similarly nice things. See you soon, I hope. Nicky More

We have been here before and had the spicy mushroom soup, which was delicious. The second time we came for lunch, I asked for the spicy mushroom soup again, but the soup was completely different. I asked the waitress who apologised and said she had given me the tofu soup by mistake, took it away and replaced it with the... More

I'm not sure how to respond. I don't think there's anything wrong with our chefs having added the mushrooms to the miso soup (we'd do this as a matter of course)... but I simply can't conceive of the possibility that you would be served the soup with ONE mushroom in it. Are you sure? The mushrooms come from a wonderful... More

I was in Moshimo a week ago with my friends for dinner. We had a great time! The food was delicious. We started with excellent soup, and then many diferrent kinds of sushi. Everything was fresh and tasty and we really enjoyed the big range of vegan things. The service was fast and polite. I need to say that we... More

Evening was ruined by the music being so loud that we were unable to hold a conversation at the table without shouting at the top of our voices. It was made worse that the music was repetitive dance music. I would expect to be able to hear the person sitting next to me in a restaurant. I left with a... More

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...

Hmmm.... Mikayla was the manager that evening. She's has been with us for many, many years and is rather lovely.

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.

Hi, thank you for your comments. I believe you might be referring to the tuna tataki with the chilli sauce when you mention the tuna sashimi. I actually agree with you, and I am in the process of changing this dish... Thank you again for taking the trouble to write, All the best, Nicky co-owner More
