One expects the fish selected for sushi to be devoid of sinew, in order to ensure a soft, unctuous mouthful. Sadly the fat lines and poor trimming of both the tuna and mackerel enhanced the meal if one wanted a built-in dental floss. It takes 7 years to become qualified as a sushi chef. There was zero artistry here today.

The restaurant needs redecorating, it looks sad and dirty inside. Nearly walked back out but sat and had a drink. Disappointed by choice and lack of flavour in my noodle dish. I love Japanese food but can cook better dishes at home. We were also overcharged for our meal so just check they have your plates correct. They rectified the... More

We ordered a delivery - some vegan sushi and miso soup. The sushi was great, but the soup was a bit too salty for us. Also, it would ve nice if hot and cold food is packed in different bags as one of the sushi boxes was quite warm. Still the sushi was amazing, so will order/visit again.

First visit to Moshimo, and had just signed up for a membership card to take advantage of the 50% off your food bill Mondays/Tuesdays. Expected it to be fairly busy due to this offer, but we arrived a little before the dinner rush so we got a seat straight away. Took a while for our order to be taken, but... More

First of all, id like to say that I am a huge Moshimo fan and visit most weeks. The sushi is always amazing and definitely the best i've had in the UK anyway. A few negative things i'd like to mention though. I recently decided to go for something new and ordered the yaki soba (i think it was called)... More

MOSHIMO, Owner at Moshimo, responded to this review

Hannah, I know I have a bit of a reputation for being rather robust in my responses (or "narky" as you call it), but I hope I am only like this with reviews that are inaccurate, fraudulent, punitive or unfair...but your review is none of these, so here goes: Thank you so much for your constructive criticism, Hannah. As I... More

Walked in at lunch time expecting to try the food but was horrified by the poor service. The waitress offered us a table with only two chairs although we have a baby with us at the time. So we asked if we can have a bigger table and she finally agreed. However the horrible male manager rushed over straight away... More

So, Fei, you decide to create a TripAdvisor profile to leave this one single, angry, apoplectic review? Did it help? I do hope so, although I doubt it. For our dear readers, may I simply give the facts (seeing as I can't take these unkind reviews off this wonderful site): all our large tables for fours were full at the... More

We really e joyed the food, but thought the portions were too small and bit pricey for the food quality.

MOSHIMO, Owner at Moshimo, responded to this review

We're so glad you enjoyed our food. In pricing, we're aiming for value for money, but the fact that we've chosen to make most of our food in-house does unfortunately come at a certain cost... ...but did you know that we do a Membership scheme, which gives you 50% your food bill on Mondays and Tuesdays, plus money off plates...

I've eaten sushi all over the world - it's generally a safe option and people rarely get it that wrong if you stick to veggie options. Unfortunately Moshimo was very disappointing. I asked for avocado maki because the ones I'd seen on the belt were brown and was told she'd get one off the belt. I asked for a non... More

We'd be worried also, if this was your experience! Was it really? Sometimes we do get things wrong (but hopefully not THIS wrong!) and I only wish you had told us when you were here so we could have had the chance to rectify the situation. Why on earth didn't you? I was so alarmed to read your description of... More

I've been going to this restaurant now for years - it is one of my favourite places to eat. Lunch or dinner..... work every penny in my honest opinion. Plus choice of organic fish and all fish and seafood is responsibly sourced!!! Even if you don't eat fish there is plenty for everyone. The spicy squid and pork belly is... 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.
