Moshi Moshi (London)
Advantages: Decent place, fairly good value
Disadvantages: Cold sleek feel
Moshi Moshi is a chain of Japanese restaurants in London, I have visited the venue at Liverpool street, it looks sleek and modern and used to be much more of a restaurant than it is now. In the past it was a case of ordering what you wanted.
Now the restaurant is much more like Yo Sushi, in the fact there is a revolving conveyor belt of sushi which moves around the restaurant allowing diners to pick out what they particularly want. I'm not sure why but this has never appealed to me and i'm not the biggest fan of Japanese food anyway.
I have to be honest, I saw no difference between this venue from Yo Sushi, although staff were less friendly and the costs were much more expensive here, i'm not entirely sure why though.
You can also order food from the menu and being honest this appeals to me much more as its hard to know how long food has been on a conveyor belt and it didn't look too appealing anyway.
Dishes on the conveyor belt ranged from edamame to a range of sushi dishes and cost between £2-£4. The food was fine, I had Sea bass Cerviche, tuna sushi and Pork Teryaki with Ginger, the range of foods on offer were fairly decent and the menu is much better than the conveyor belt which is a distraction.
Service was fine although lacked any urgency or impact, prices are fine, although not as competitive as Yo Sushi, the thing I liked most about this place was that they are very environmentally friendly with certification that their fish is from sustainable stock, the place looks sleeker and cooler than Yo Sushi and probably appeals to a more sophisticated crowd but it isn't really any better.
I've given it 3 out of 5 as we had a meal for under £30, but I still felt hungry and couldn't go away raving about it, but my partner enjoyed it and she is much more knowledgeable about Japanese food than I am.
Summary: A nice place but lacking the oomph to seduce me
