Brought back happy memories of our Jamaican holiday

Bored of the monthly carvery, we wanted to try somewhere a bit different and, after remembering our honeymoon in the Carribean, we decided to book a table at Moshan to bring back a few memories of the seductive and warm Jamaican culture.

The food is amazing but the staff are rude and let the whole place down 👎 would've rated it a 5 but unfortunately the service was pretty poor.

Fabulously cooked with passion and home cooked feel. Varied menu best chilli garlic bread I have ever and the goat curry is to die for. Upstairs carribean bar is a nice touch too

I was looking forward to eating at the Moshan Island Grill as I'd heard some very good reports from friends etc. It very very nearly scores 5 stars with me but it's just one of those places that is very good but not excellent. It's obvious from other reviews that just like any other place to eat they have little... More

Food is amazing, massive complements to the chefs! Staff we're rude assumed they'd be keeping the change when we paid our bill and made it really awkward for our party by saying " Did you want your change?" Won't be visiting again.

We are a family run restaurant and I know all my family/friends have my business at heart, however I have just taken on three new staff and... More

Overall a good atmosphere but way way too busy for the staff, several large groups were absorbing the attention not in an unruly way but the proportion of time needed to be spent on them detracted from everyone else. We had food delivered but no plates and then no cutlery the beers were warm and the glasses didn't arrive with... More

The food was different to what we have tried before. The staff were really friendly and were so helpful in making suggestions (including the chef) on what to accompany our meals. I started with chicken skewers which had a refreshing taste of lime and my husband had stamp and go. For the main I had chilli fish stew with dumplings,... More

A little island of it's own this restaurant offers an unusual menu in a convenient location. Run by a lovely family who are involved and passionate about their work they have formulated a delicious menu. Thank goodness someone has the initiative to open something other than a tapas bar or Indian restaurant. I have eaten goat curry here before and... More

Simply gorgeous food in a now fabulously painted (exterior) building. Loved the food, loved the punch (definitely leaving the car at home next visit!!).
