Our first visit here definitely lived up to expectations. Four of us all had different starters and main courses and each dish was equally tasty. Starters included delicious pork belly, tasty lentil fritters and chicken skewers and main courses of Caribbean fish curry, steak and jerk chicken were just as nice. Service was efficient and generous (gave some extra complementary... More

I hope you find your service different from my last six months They are ignorant, unprofessional and to them the customer doesn't matter. If you need to add/remove something from your order then this company does not have professional nous to service you. I asked them to change my order with a deviation to their menu and they told me... More

Impressed at how Moshan managed a table of 14 when all other tables in the restaurant were taken too, but somehow they did. Stopped here mid-week for a Birthday meal. The food is always good at Moshan - yet to have a poor meal here. And the service is better than ever.

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. Last but definitely not least the food was wonderful. Our party ordered the Trinidad Roti, Jerk Skewers,... More

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 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.

The food is as good as anywhere you... More
