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.

We love Moshimo. The Sushi is the freshest you will fine and the quality of the hot food, particularly the Ramen is amazing. Its has a great, relaxed, cool atmosphere and you are never rushed. Will definitely be back!

I think your belt needs to be better stocked at lower peak times. On vegan Wednesday I think it should be clearly marked which colour plate each vegan dish is actually on rather than just look out for plates of a certain colour to see what’s on it.... a dedicated vegan menu including a specials page and a main menu would be preferable.

A great experience. The restaurant has a central but relatively secluded, quiet location with a relaxed atmosphere whatever the weather. The menu is coherent and varied. Delicious food and drinks. Friendly and efficient service. Highly recommended.

Food and service were lovely, however we came to moshimo due to the extensive vegan menu. There wasn’t a yellow plate during our entire dining experience and had to wait at least 20 minutes between orange plates. So that was disappointing BUT food was delicious and the server was very attentive. All in all, a nice birthday for me.

Accommodated my family of 10 within 15 mins notice. Food was delicious and came out in good time considering how big the order was. The sashimi tasted fresh. Very happy with the service and will come back again.

Excellent service from all members of staff. Particular thanks goes to the young, tall chap with curly ginger hair. He was accomodating and chatty without being intrusive. The staff were also training a new young staff member and she was very polite and their training did not interfere with our dinner.

My boyfriend and I visited Moshimo on Sunday 22nd July and had a truly lovely evening. Not only was the food fabulous, but the service was absolutely top notch. We explained that we weren't really sure what to order, and we had 3 lovely and incredibly helpful and polite young gentlemen explain what they would recommend. Nothing seemed too much trouble, and their excellent service made our evening even lovelier than it was already. They were a credit to the restaurant! Thanks so much for a lovely meal and to your fantastic staff.

We were quite disappointed as we’d heard good things. The food was ok but the sashimi was cut poorly. The service was a bit stressed and disjointed. We asked to move inside because of the fire drill going on in the car park and the response was that it was ok but they had other bookings coming in soon (we also had a booking...) and were sat on a tiny table without enough space for our food. And when we had to be evacuated because of the fire, we were forced to pay with no offer of a discount (I did ask) We had literally only finished eating and wanted dessert. The fire is obviously no ones fault but the overall experience as the customer was poor. The music playing during lunch was odd - 80’s pop rock. Sorry to not be more positive but I was taking my mum who was visiting from Australia for lunch and it didn’t live up to our expectations.

Alex was a real help and suggested some lovely dishes for us as we are Novices at this type of food. Loved it all very much and a really lovely feel to the restaurant especially all open on a hot summers evening.

Our food was all cold and service was very slow, we were offered discount but this was only 10% on the mains which totalled about £5

Food was great, we’re both vegan and had no complaints about any of the dishes we tried! The teriyaki mock duck dish is a must try as is the tofu ngiri!!

Great place for vegans and non vegans to meet up and satisfy mutual requirements. Really enjoyed the 'fresh cooked' food, was deeply suspicious of the conveyor belt, much of the dishes seemed to be going round for a long time. The portions were a little on the skimpy side for the cost and, as ever, short measures on pints of beer always irritate me - a pint glass means a pint of beer, I don't want an inch of bubbles at the top of a pint. That is only acceptable when there's a line marking a pint - no line means that a pint means a FULL glass. Not the staff's fault, but if management are not aware of this, then they should be. Other than that, we did have a great evening and the staff were very helpful, friendly and kind.

Visited mainly because of 50% vegan Wednesday which is a brilliant idea and one I congratulate you on. However I did find the list of vegan specials slightly confusing as it included chicken and smoked salmon. Could I suggest specific plate colours for only vegan options and clear marking of the specials that are vegan.
