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.

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.

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

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.

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...

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.

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.

The atmosphere is lovely, Moshimo have a really great set-up, and the foods great too! A different twist to basic sushi.
