Critics Review
Who says sushi can't be vegan?
8/10
Moshimo is Brighton’s first conveyor belt style Japanese restaurant, and is very popular with locals along with visitors from afar. Having a reputation for its quality ingredients and a sustainable ethos, I was really excited about my visit to Moshimo to review their vegan range of food. Moshimo serves a fantastic selection of authentic Japanese food, it isn’t just sushi there are main dishes such as noodles & rice, or Japanese tapas food.

I ordered a sake margarita, but accidentally drank directly out of the salt-rimmed glass instead of the straw at one point, which in turn compelled me to drink the rest of my water (naturally). The waiter came over and I politely asked for more water, he said, "Oh, I see you drank directly from the salted rim! I bet you regret that decision now, don't you!" and then walked away without bringing water back. The same waiter barely checked on us during our time there - we felt quite neglected. Conveyor belt sushi was dry and way overpriced. We won't be returning.

The great vegan Moshimo challenge event was great, as usual. Hopefully you'll add more vegan dishes to your menu!

Having been a vegetarian for 40 years I was very much looking forward to trying Sushi for the first time. Out of 4 of us there was 2 vegetarians the night we came. We ordered the Vegan sharing platter but I was horrified when it arrived with a Prawn's tail sticking out of one of the dishes. On questioning this I was advised that it was a vegetarian version. I have never been offended when friends have eaten meat in front of me having myself cooked it in the past for partners and my daughter. This though was very offensive as I am a vegetarian for a reason and choose not to eat foods that look like animals/fish - this put me off the whole of the evening and I did not enjoy the food - would never come back to this restaurant again

Delicious and filling food as always! But it was freezing outside, and cold air from outside was coming in through the partition wall where we were sitting, making us quite cold by the end of our dinner.

We have been twice. The food is fabulous and really great value. It is brilliant to know that it is ethically sourced. The plum wine is delicious, it would be great to have more varieties. The first time we went there (December 2019) were very few diners and our waiter was absolutely excellent. Really knowledgeable and attentive (but not too attentive). The second time we went (January 2020) they were very busy and it was quite noisy. Our waiter was good again, but rushing a lot. It should be less popular!

Only thing I would suggest is in the payment process- we were just shown our total amount on the iPad. We never got a bill to look at and when the waiter came to take payment we didn't see a breakdown then, either. Only after we paid were we offered a receipt. This is quite uncomfortable for diners, I think. Everything else was great though!

Nice food though not much included with taster menu. Staff were friendly however kitchen ran out of multiple items on the menu. One of the few restaurants with an accessible toilet. Still worth a visit if you want to try something new.
