Moshimo Brighton, Japanese & Sushi

Award winning, vibrant and modern restaurant, specialising in Japanese and sushi. Self services small plates from a food conveyer belt. They have a strong emphasis on sustainability and ethically sourced ingredients.

Moshimo Brighton

When it comes to sushi in Brighton there is only one real option for many of the city’s residents. Moshimo Brighton is the premier sushi and Japanese restaurant, and one of the city’s most popular eating destinations located in the Brighton Lanes.

From the eye-catching architecture to the sensational sushi dishes, eating at Moshimo is an immersive experience that offers an authentic taste of traditional Japanese cuisine with a modern twist. Underpinning everything is an ethos of serving only the freshest fish and seasonal ingredients available, prepared on site with skill, and a passion for creating elegant dishes that are bold in their simplicity.

With the full Moshimo Brighton menu online, you’ve got more than 100 dishes to choose from including lots of plant-based options. Their most popular dishes are chicken katsu, sushi platters, poke and pork ribs in sticky soy. They also offer sushi party platters, with a big selection for a family feast. They have introduced a new Temaki Party this year which is basically like an Afternoon Tea but with platters of sushi instead of cakes! Rest assured that all meat and fish are sourced using the highest possible ethical standards, which includes free-range chicken and the most sustainable farmed salmon in the UK.

Fish Love – putting sustainability in the spotlight

When it comes to sustainability there are few restaurants that can claim to have had such a global effect than Moshimo. Ticking all the usual boxes was not enough for the team, and through their “Fish Love” campaign they have highlighted the dangers of over fishing at a European level. 

Moshimo’s efforts have not gone unnoticed in Brighton with the public voting Moshimo Brighton’s most Sustainable Restaurant in the 2019 and 2020 Brighton Restaurant Awards.

Started in 2009, the campaign has regularly hit the headlines through its revealing images of celebrities holding fish and seafood. Big stars such as Helena Bonham-Carter, Ben Kingsley, Gillian Anderson and Dame Judi Dench have been featured, all to raise awareness of destructive fishing practises.

The campaign has been credited by campaigners for having turned the spotlight onto politicians to act to save dwindling fish stocks. The image of Helena Bonham-Carter helped convince the UK Government to create the largest marine protected zone in the world, and the images were exhibited at the European Commission to celebrate the success of policy changes it helped to introduce. If you haven’t seen the images go to

Moshimo Brighton – Award winning and innovative

The award winning Opticon building that houses Moshimo Brighton was designed to resemble a floating lantern. With sliding walls that resemble Japanese shoji paper walls that bring the outside in during the summer months, and a Hiroba deck area outside there is much to admire about the venue. Not content with what they have already achieved, the plans for a new “Skylight” restaurant have been approved.

The 150-cover restaurant will be suspended high above the existing building in Bartholemew Square. Promising to be unlike anything else in the city, it will offer panoramic views of the city for diners and appear as a lantern in the sky to passers-by. The new restaurant will be a different prospect to the original and serve a range of Asian dishes such as Yakitori, ceviche and other modern Japanese cuisine.

    Moshimo is my favourite restaurant in Brighton, you can sit casually by the conveyor and help yourself, or choose to have table service. Great offers if you get their membership card. Its just great food and lovely staff in a cool venue! If you don’t know what to order they have a couple of taster menus which I’d recommend. They also have a pretty decent vegan range so it’s not just fish!

    Moshimo (previously Moshi Moshi) has been around for many years and it’s easy to see why. The service and food are reliable, good quality and they are committed to sustainability. They also cater for vegans. The membership is well worth it to secure excellent discounts. I would note that the Chicken Kang Jung and the Squid Kara-age are very similar and both very generous portions…so maybe don’t order both of them just for yourself like I did!

    I will be eating at Moshimo for years to come.

    My kids love Moshimo especially every Monday and Tuesday when you get 50% off your bill when you sign up for a membership card. It’s a great treat for the kids after swimming on a Monday afternoon, we can normally park close, eat and get back to the car park within the hour!
    Great selection of Sushi and the miso soup just hits the spot for me.

  5. Caroline

    I have loved Moshimo for a long time. They just seem to get every dish perfect and on a sunny day the outside tables are perfect for a lazy lunch. This is my go to alternative to a sunday roast!

  6. Emma Harrel

    The best place in town for sushi and there’s a fantastic vegan range to choose. On a sunny day their decking is the perfect spot to enjoy your food!

  7. Emma Clare
