Moshi Moshi has great food and is good value for money. Attentive wait staff. We will definitely be returning and will be recommending to friends and family.
Very fresh Sashimi ! We enjoyed large assorted Sashimi and Sushi. It’s a lot for 2 people! And good deep fried Oysters, and Miso eggplant ( Dengaku). 😃
We enjoyed a variety of delectable Japanese dishes in a quiet and pleasant restaurant. Table service was excellent considering that people continued to come in the front door and tables started filling up. Have been to Moshi Moshi before and will go again.
