About Moshimo Brighton
Located in Bartholomew Square in the heart of the Lanes, MOSHIMO is Brighton’s best-loved Japanese restaurant.
We're known for our handmade sushi, the authenticity of our hot Japanese dishes, and the sustainability of our fish, for which we have won a brace of prestigious national and international awards. We've become one of THE places in Brighton for eating plant-based food. We’re also known for the best membership scheme in town: with over 15,000 members and more joining all the time, the party keeps on getting better. If you don’t believe us, come and visit us for our 50% MOSHIMO Mondays and now Tuesdays Too.
The value for money for Members on a Monday and Tuesday night is outstanding. The food quality is stunning. We love it and visit probably once a week. Best Japanese restaurant in Brighton by far with wonderfully friendly service.
service is not attentative, thus it is not worthy what we pay.
Great staff, very enjoyable food
Expensive but nice. Worth the premium price? Not sure but I did enjoy it.
What a find,friends had told us to try out the food here,great recommendation on their part. Loved it,have organised a visit with some girlfriends next month already.
Never been before. Food was great as was service. Will be back for more visits.
Absolutely delicious food, nice atmosphere, and friendly service!
Slightly overrated and very noisy that evening
It was my husbands 60 th birthday and we had such a brilliant evening, as always you guys are efficient, we were a large group and we had consistent, happy staff, food and wine were flowing, thank you so much you are our favourite restaurant in Brighton!!
First time at Moshimo was great. Excellent sushi and atmosphere. Great to visit during the summer as the dining area is opens up to the patio so you can enjoy the sunshine. You can find other Japanese restaurants for cheaper, but it's a nice place to treat yourself once in a while
Lovely food, friendly service
WOW,we changed our reservation and added 12 more guests and whilst eyebrows where raised they just got on with things to make it work. Important American colleagues had a seriously good time,they also commented on the hospitality being far better than what they had been receiving generally around Brighton. Thank you Moshimo
My boyfriend and I made a reservation and once arrived we have been sat quickly in a nice table. It looked very busy that day at one point and we noticed how all the staff was trying their best to make things done. The Ika squid Kara-age is sooo delicious. Thank you guys for having us! We will be def back.
Food was fantastic and very well priced. The place seems very understaffed was long waits to order and get the bill. I would definitely go back tho
My fiancé and I were celebrating our anniversary on Sunday evening and had the WORST service we have ever encountered in a restaurant. Service was painfully slow and everything took forever to come once we were finally asked what we would like to order. The food was good but unfortunately the service let the evening down. When we came to paying my fiancé asked for the bill three times in half an hour before we gave up on waiting and walked over to the counter to pay. The waiter on the till seemed to be in a heated conversation with one of the waitresses and I can only imagine it was regarding the service on her shift as we heard her say ‘how are you going to cope with this tomorrow’ the waiter acknowledged the poor service we had received in a unapologetic way and then had the cheek to add a service charge to our bill! Obviously seeing this I asked him to remove it straight away. Poor service, ok food. I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone. I had to give 1 star on here as it would not let me give zero.
Food is pretty good, but boy is it expensive... two of us went yesterday, and £80 gets you some sushi nibbles and a couple of drinks... we were hungry an hour later... I’ve been before this visit, but that was with a friend who had a 50% discount, so I’ll be doing that again in the future! That or just go to Yo Sushi, it’s the same but much cheaper...
Nice food and atmosphere
Amazing food and lovely funny, friendly staff with amazing service. It is fairly expensive but definitely worth the money.
Staff are always welcoming and professional, menu is varied, great quality and value for money.
MOSHIMO is outstanding and I unhesitatingly recommend it for excellent quality, ultra-fresh sushi and an array of other Japanese delicacies. My fussy Dad, for whom raw fish is anathema, tucked heartily into a chicken katsu curry - there are plenty of options for vegans, vegetarians and fussy eaters. The rest of us gorged on sashimi, gyozas, crispy kale, chicken yakitori and edamame beans. The staff were friendly and the service super-efficient. Most of what we ate was selected from the menu rather than the little conveyor belt, the pace of which is glacial and the diversity on which, on a Friday lunch time in August 2019, seemed to me to be a little on the unexciting side. No matter: we had a great meal and would come back again and again.
Lovely food, friendly staff and a peaceful atmosphere!!
Now becoming overpriced and charging for ginger is a step too far. We have always previously enjoyed eating at Moshimo and have been visiting for several years when in Brighton but we feel that it no longer represents good value.
Maitre d was grumpy and didnt talk. Waiter was trying to hard. Service was slow. Foid on conveyor was tired. Cocktails were fantastic
Great atmosphere & service - but overpriced for what you actually get.
The atmosphere is lovely, Moshimo have a really great set-up, and the foods great too! A different twist to basic sushi.
