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. Moshimo Madness Members offer is not available after 5 o'clock during the evening on Valentine's day!
Came in for a sushi making evening Row was a brilliant teacher! Only downside was that a group of men sat behind us so it was quite difficult to hear - if we or they could have sat somewhere else that would have been perfect
Brilliant service and food. The staff were amazing.
The food is delicious and there is an impressive range of choices available. The service is very friendly.
I really enjoy the vegan choices. My friend had a hand rolled dish that she didn't think was as good as her regular restaurant in Covent Garden. She has high standards.
Sushi was great although I had to ask 4 times for my miso soup, also the ribs were very dry
Always a brilliant meal. Love coming here. Recommend signing up to Moshimo Membership to receive 50% off your food bill
Come to Moshimo a lot and always enjoy it. However I'd like to see some new choices added to the conveyor belt food, it's been the same for years now.
Absolutely fantastic food and service on a busy Saturday night. My husband and I absolutely loved our visit and will definitely be back. Thank you.
Service was terrible, we didn’t get what we actually ordered and they were out of a few things on the menu which, for a Friday evening is pretty poor.
What a great Brighton Gem, the food just gets better ,always new dishes to try,great visit.
Moshimo is a great restaurant with a buzzy atmosphere & amazing food to top it off!
Amazing service, staff are fantastic!
The food is amazing! Very well prepared eat bite is just worth every penny. Staff are friendly and welcoming.
Lovely food, friendly staff, lively atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!
Really beautiful food would definitely definitely come back
We visited Moshimo Brighton for my wife's birthday and had a wonderful experience. I added a note to the booking letting the restaurant know we were celebrating and we were greeted with a happy birthday welcome as we arrived. We had the Yakitori and Sashimi sharing platters and the quality was outstanding, definitely the best Japanese food that we've tried in Brighton. The staff were all friendly and at the end of the meal brought out a complimentary desert singing happy birthday. We really appreciated that! We'll be back on our next visit!
staff is always friendly but also fast and the food just gets better so we keep coming back.
We had a lovely evening, excellent food, great service and very accommodating when we turned up early
So glad we’re in January for the Moshimo Madness! Hope it carries into Feb.
The website advertised a '25% off vegan food' promotion on the day I was going. We ordered only vegan food and then when we were handed the bill, no deduction had been made. I queried this with the waiter and he said he'd check but thought that the deal wasn't on. Having checked he said the offer wasn't on, as 'member madness' was running instead, however nowhere on the website did it state this, nor was it stated when I booked or when we were seated, or when we ordered. It's an offer that Moshimo are keen to promote and advertise, so it was very disappointing that they didn't honour it, or just tell us that it wasn't running when we sat down. It is also the usual deal that (as far as I'm aware) is always running on Wednesdays, so to allow people to assume that it was still available is misleading and quite a let down.
I thought the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was decent. Food was pretty good also. However, my night was put off from the start, as we were waiting almost 45minutes for our drinks let alone some one coming along to take our order. What made matters worse, was the fact that the gentlemen who took the order, was having a chat with another staff member, and I know he caught me looking at him as he came straight over to apologise for the drinks delay. Not only that, the bartender didn’t have our drink ready which makes me think our waiter didn’t even put our order in. I just wanted to leave by that point and the only reason why I stayed was because my partner insisted on us staying as she didn’t want to cause a scene. But it’s safe to say I will not be coming back. To top it off, we were given the wrong bill. And then when we were given the correct bill, after I had asked for the change, we didn’t want to leave a tip as our experience was bad. The staff member came back and added the additional OPTIONAL service charge so we got back short change. To be fair, we asked a different waiter for the change so the first waiter was not at fault for this, as we were getting fed up having to wait to be seen to. Never again. Appalling service.
Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink! It's a shame you have stopped providing tap water in a jug, you now provide the smallest glass ever and I felt bad constantly having to ask for another glass of water and ended up pouring from my own water bottle Please can you either provide bigger glasses or get some jugs? Thanks, Emma
