We had heard many positive comments about The Moshan Island Grill and we weren't disappointed. It doesn't look much from the outside and inside it's not very large (about 35 seats) but the decor and atmosphere are great and the service was excellent.

Haven't been here in a little while and was very pleasantly surprised. The decor had been changed, some of the staff were familiar and the Jerk Chicken was even better than I remembered! Delicious !!

Went here on Mothers Day Last Year it was amazing. Made us feel like we were reliving our holiday in Jamaica all over again.

Went there some time ago and the food was delicious and cooked to order. Looks nothing from the outside, in fact looks dreary and uninviting but I can tell you that the food is scrummy.

I read the reviews and thought I would give it a go. My husband and I went on Friday evening and shared belly pork with honey for starters, I expected it to be sweet, however it was really salty, I love my salt and add it to everything but this was so salty we struggled to eat it, I wondered...

You say you add salt to everything... I would suggest tasting food before adding more salt or pepper to any of our dishes or in fact, any meal you eat at any restaurant. SeasonIng meat fat with sugar? No unfortunately we don't do that in the caribbean... The American cuisine however have a dish, which is called PULLED barbecue pork,... More

Staying with friends in Swindon and ate here Saturday evening. Lovely experience. The staff are delightful and the food was excellent-authentic caribbean. I chose the Jamaican pattie followed by curried goat, rice n peas and plantain.. I can still remember it! The prices compared very well to London where we came from. The food is as good as anywhere you... More

We visited this place when it first opened and it seemed average. A couple of years on we decided to give it a try and are we glad we did. The food was good, nice spices. Drinks were good. Staff was great, funny. We'll go back again soon.

I have visited the Moshan on many occasions, and every time the food had been fantastic. I've eaten here a couple of times with my husband, who loves good food, but I mainly go here with my friends, as this is always our first choice! I've never left a restaurant review before, but feel this definitely deserves a mention. The... More

We went there last night for my birthday. Just the two off us. First impressions as we walked through door was "wow". Its tiny but great atmosphere. We welcomed by a lovely young smilie waitress and showed to our table. Drink orders were taken , which are very reasonably priced. The menu is small, which is great. We opted for... More

The first outing at this venue. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It is however a victim of it's own success. Very busy at times, and even having made a booking you need to have a flexible approach. You will be looked after until your table is ready, and it is worth the wait. The traditional menu, livens your taste... More
