Firstly i only ever come here on half price monday and Tuesday with membership card. Otherwise i think its absolutely over priced. Sushi however is of good standard and you can request it to be fresh rather than off the conveyor belt. Hot meals are also tasty and very filling. I wouldn't sit around in this restaurant for ages and... More

You don't tend to see many comments about the desserts in Japanese restaurants because, well, they tend to be underwhelming. All I can say is - GO TO MOSHIMO AND HAVE THE TEMPURA ICE CREAM. Don't know how they do it, but WOW!

Sorry Moshimo, but you have lost it. It started with changing the beer and not serving Asahi.... that I could take on the chin as everything else was great. Then the kids menu then vanished..... and then, the last few times you have inexplicably taken what were great desserts off the menu! To add further pain, it is more expensive... More

Staff aren't attentive, looks like they couldn't care less and were bored, although it did take them a long time to take our order. Felt a little pressurised into ordering more than we wanted. The food on the conveyor belt didn't look appetising and it does seem that the price for the food isn't reflected in the quality of the... More

MOSHIMO, Owner at Moshimo, responded to this review

Hi there, thanks for your review, although naturally we were a little stung by your comment that we're "a little like Yo," as there really is an awful lot of difference between us (we cut all our fish ourselves, make our sushi by hand and not by robots and make all our own sauces in-house, and serve Loch Duart salmon,...

this varies depending on what you actually order...A bowl of noodles drown in teriyaki sauce,,,too sweet and i didnt check to see but i`m sure the sauce used contains sugar unlike `Clearspring` Teriyaki sauce! On a seperate occasion i had the salmon which was fine. Better than Wagamamas for sure as this company is promoting more sustainable food etc... Best... More

MOSHIMO, Owner at Moshimo, responded to this review

Er... Yes, our oil is non-GMO. Our Teriyaki sauce is homemade. We make it ourselves in the restaurant and, contrary to most restaurants (because I have checked this), ours is made from boiling carrots, spring onions, onions and other fresh vegetables in soy sauce and water. Yes, it contains sugar. Thank you, Nicky co-owner PS It's funny, but I've gone... More

These people really know what they're doing. We always have a lovely time- it's busy and buzzing and the staff are always charming- the owner is usually about chatting and keeping an eye on things. I just have to say TEMPURA ICE CREAM. This is a delicious baked Alaska in essence but much richer and more scrumptious. We go here... More

We love Moshimo...its fantastic food, great atmosphere and really good prices. If you love fabulous sushi then this is the restaurant to go too!! We had a really wonderful waiter called George who was brilliant and explained how everything worked and the menu. Very laid back, fast and excellent choices.

We love Moshimo. It's not the best sushi restaurant ever, but it's the best sushi we've tried in the UK so far, and the restaurant has a really nice ambiance. Service is very friendly. Most of the week It's very expensive, unless you have a membership card. We have a membership card for two adults, which gives us 50% off... More

MOSHIMO, Owner at Moshimo, responded to this review

Hi Martin, thank you so much for your review, which was very nice for the team to read. Moshimo Membership actually costs £18 per year (although we may well have to increase this next year as costs keep rising because of the weak pound!). We've taken our famous chocolate mousse off the menu, but sometimes - like today, for instance... More

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.
