Why go?


Opened in 1994, Moshi Moshi was the first to introduce a Kaiten (a sushi conveyor belt) to London.

The restaurant uses time-honoured Japanese techniques, a contemporary approach and the best ingredients available. They're also very proud of the fish that they serve, and have always worked hard to get ethical, locally-sourced catch of outstanding quality.

With plenty of delicious dishes to choose from, including amazing sushi and incredible hot plates including veggie options and its buzz and amazing design, this Japanese gem will not disappoint.

With the help of the knowledgeable and award-winning owner, Caroline Bennett, we embarked on an awesome Japanese feast.

For starters, we grazed on fresh seaweed salad, light and crispy prawn tempura and grilled mackerel mixed with cucumber in a citrus-soy ponzu sauce, all packing a ton of flavour.

After gulping miso soup, we opted for the Suffolk grass fed teriyaki beef with crispy noodles and greens and a yummy aubergine dish.

Definitely try a sushi platter, as the fish is out of this world, the menu's extensive and the open sushi kitchen will make your mouth water.

The mix of traditional Japanese desserts, including green tea ice cream, sweet rice balls and lemon panna cotta were to-die-for and totally worth giving a whirl.

Drink?


We tried out something sparkling to start, namely the prosecco which was just the ticket after a long day at the office.

With our meal, we opted for something more traditional: a refreshing bottle of ice cold Sayuri nigorizake sake.
