I had never tried Caribbean food before and was very sceptical as I don't do hot! I was pleasantly surprised my fish curry was gorgeous, creamy, full of fish and flavour. The restaurant was very noisy but you'll get that wherever you go. We'd never thought of a Caribbean restaurant when looking for somewhere to go for a meal but... More

I have eaten here a few times over the past year. Fantastic food and service. My favourite dish has to be the mix grill, worth every penny. It's a great mix of meat in one dish. Love it!

We visited Moshan on a Tuesday evening, traditionally not a busy night for restaurants, but mid-week makes no difference for this place! It was packed! This was my second visit, but the first for friends, and we weren't disappointed. We received a warm, friendly welcome, were shown to our table promptly, and service was great. We shared some starters between... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant as I'd hoped it would take me back to our wonderful holiday in the Caribbean last year but unfortunately it didn't deliver. The welcome certainly wasn't as warm as I'd expected, but unfortunately the service was as slow as I remembered from holiday. Even more unfortunate was what was described as... More

I went Saturday night with some friends and had a fab night! The staff where great they were busy when we got there as we did not book before which was our own fault, but they offered us to pop next door for a drink while we waited for a table and they would come get us, which we thought... More

I've only been at lunch times, eating from the set menu (very reasonable) and tried a couple items from the regular menu, which should have something for everyone and some interesting new things to try. My food has always been cooked well, nicely spiced and presented. Service is friendly and quick. One of my favourite restaurants in Swindon.

We had decided to go to Los Gatos for Tapas but on arrival discovered they were having a ticket only Sherry Tasting. Knowing there were a few places within walking distance we thought we would wander about for a bit before making our choice, eventually settling on Moshan as we had enjoyed our previous meals there. Knowing we were meeting... More

Chose this for my leaving do - food excellent, good mid-week buzz and seemed popular. I had the goat/mutton curry which felt very authentic. I'll certainly try it again.

I left two voicemails and sent two emails none of which were responded to.the restaurant unfortunately has no square tables an as a result we were sat a little awkwardly around two round tables. We all... More

My first time visiting as part of a party of 10. When first entering, I was transported to a bland, white washed room, rather than the bright, warm and colourful interior you might expect from a Caribbean restaurant. When we gave our order, the waitress also appeared very cold, blunt and factual, making no apology for the lack of 'soup... More
