If there’s any restaurant that deserves recognition for their efforts to end overfishing, then this is it. Moshimo is home to 'Fishlove', a global campaign that’s achieved far reaching awareness and respect with their bold images of naked celebrities embracing fish. This campaign has gained media attention across the world and has made a significant contribution to the protection of fish species around the globe. And it might seem unusual for a sushi joint to lead this campaign, but if anything, restaurants are the best possible places to have an impact. As such, Moshimo are very conscious when it comes to sourcing produce for their menus, and do not serve fish that is listed as “fish to avoid” by the Marine Conservation Society.
But their strong reputation and popularity isn’t down to this alone - the quality of their eats and vegan / vegetarian offerings puts them at the figurehead of Brighton’s buzzy food scene. When it comes to their sushi plates, Moshimo don’t mess around; the team’s knife skills are second to none, carving beautiful and delicate sushi dishes in an array of vibrant colours and flamboyant displays. You’ll find all your favourites circling their sushi conveyor-belt, from salmon hosomaki and Spicy tuna maki, to Sea bass & yuzu chilli pepper and sustainable ‘eel’ nigiri. We might sound a little greedy, but we like to dip into a couple of small sushi plates before ordering a hot main with rice: we’re talking miso marinated hake, chicken katsu, and our personal pick, Korean pork bulgogi.
Their plant-based menus more than holds its own, showing that you don’t need to have meat or fish to have a good time. There’s a really creative bunch of meat-free eats on the menu at the minute, and Moshimo are promising to expand it even further. In our opinion, the vegan sushi boat is unbeatable: a mammoth wooden boat designed to share, that sails to your table with a mighty crew of vegan sushi bites of your choice.
Moshimo’s care, attention and dedication to serving good food with purpose makes it an absolute winner in our books. Paired with a stunning venue and quality atmosphere, and you’ll want to make Moshimo your number one dining spot in town. Get it on your hit-list immediately.

Really good value wriggle deal - lovely poké bowl and fab gyoza. Nice server. Always find the atmosphere slightly odd
Food is fresh and delicious. We went on a Sunday so it was reasonably quiet.
If I could come here every day I would! This is Brighton’s finest and has been for decades. My friend described it as “the godfather” of Brighton restaurants!
Always excellent food and great service. This is a weekly regular for me
Nice food, could do with more veg and less rice if possible
Lovely, relaxed environment
