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.

It was a really fun course. The only thing I’d add would be showing us how to cut the fish

What a disappointment! Moshimo has been my favourite restaurant in Brighton for years The service has progressively got worse, the wine choice too limited but the food was good and the experience fun so that made up for the sloppy slow and disappointing service Last Sunday the food was appalling, the tempura was greasy and horrid, the tuna dishes on the belt was dark brown rather than bright red, the variety of dishes just wasn’t there and with the service being so slow it ordering from the menu was just not an option... in summary you have lost a regular customer unless you do something about what you are serving and how Very very sad to feel this way about Moshimo after all these years!

Food was overpriced and it was not clear what food on the menu actually was! Spicy hot chewy squid and portions were tiny! I scoulded my mouth on a piece of tofu No warnings it would be boiling hot.

I think you’re staff need a little more training. I had to call staff over to take our order etc. Sadly I had some inari and the rice was undercooked, which I had to send back. My friend had a dish and it was so spicy she couldn’t eat it all and on the menu it didn’t mention how hot it was. The sushi was ok, but not great. Lovely concept but I don’t think i’ll be back.

We loved Moshimo. The food was fantastic and the staff so friendly. We were a group of 7 and the service went super smoothly. We will definitely go back there when in Brighton.

Fantastic food that was well presented and fresh. There was an extensive menu and a great range of options for us as a group made up of vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters! The people that served us were very helpful and attentive too. Would definitely recommend.

We used to love Moshimo but stopped coming when we moved further away. Decided to head back for a birthday treat but left feeling a little disappointed. The quality isn't what it used to be and there was a real lack of atmosphere. It was much quieter than we'd expected

Nice place although my crab dish I had from the conveyor belt was quite warm.thia put me ff eating further dishes Do you monitor how long the food is on the belts before taking it off? There seemed to be a lot of dishes that remained on their? All the staff were very nice and I didn’t want to co plain at the time as it was a birthday meal I do hope I hear from you John

My partner and I had a brilliant time participating in a sushi masterclass at Moshimo. The host not only took us through the making 6 different types of sushi, but also imparted insight on the history of sushi and other information which was very interesting. We made enough to sushi to take some home with us (which I was surprised at, as I expected we would eat it all!) and the ingredients provided were very tasty. I would only say we were a bit cosy on our table, luckily we were sat with a very nice couple who we got talking to, and at £70 for 2 people maybe a tad on the expensive side. Nevertheless we had a great time, and would thoroughly recommend to friends and other people to give it a try!

Bogdan was very good at running the workshop,being both professional and entertaining. Snippets of history of sushi making were really interesting and made the workshop feel informative too.

I love Moshimo and the only reason I gave 4 stars for the service is you do have to wait a while as it’s so hectic. Having said that, there is such a buzz it’s not a big pain and the staff are always happy to be flagged down. Buzzing, friendly and tasty!

I booked the restaurant for mine & my son’s birthdays. I was told that I couldn’t have the free Moshimo card for a friend as it wasn’t with in a week of my birthday - despite the email that I had received stating that I needed to book within 1 month of my birthday. This was however eventually sorted out. Service was a bit hit & miss - having to chase up drinks on several occasions. We ordered a desert for my son and gave the server a candle to put in it as a surprise. The desert arrived whilst my son was in the bathroom & the candle had been put in upside down with the plastic candle holder having been lit! Come on - who inserts a candle upside down? However we enjoyed the food!!
