Dine In Menu


Moshi Moshi took bluefin tuna off our menus in 1998 – we were the first restaurant in the UK to do so.

We switched from mass-produced farmed salmon to sustainable Loch Duart's salmon in 2000. Knowing about the damages to the marine environment from using farmed fin fish, we have tried, where possible, to completely remove farmed fish from our menu.

We know our fisherman. Through Slow Food we met a wonderful family-run Cornish business supplying fish caught by a collective of small boats using environmentally-friendly static gear and lines. They don't throw away any of their catch – and the fish is at Moshi Moshi the day after it is landed. Without these fisherman's skill and knowledge we would have no choice but to rely on trawl-caught environmentally-damaging fishermen, and so supporting them is vital.

Concerned about the problems of declining populations of European Eel, we replaced our popular unagi eel dish with an even tastier dish of kabayaki dog-fish – a totally under-utilised species from Cornwall.

We've stopped using factory-fished skipjack tuna, and now use the Fish 4 Ever brand of pole and line caught skipjack.

We only use dive-caught scallops from the Isle of Mull.
All our meat comes from a family farm in Essex and is totally free-range and fed only on natural foods.
All our eggs are free-range

We have stayed true to the traditions of Japanese food and add sugar and vinegar to our sushi rice; however, the amounts we add are reduced to as low a level as possible without compromising the delicate balance in our sushi and we use low levels of sugar in other dishes too, such as teriyaki sauce where we substitute with apple juice.

You have a choice of Japonica white rice or genmai brown rice with your bento boxes Japanese food is low in calories and high in all the fats your body needs: fish oils are high in Omega 3 fatty acids and a typical sushi lunch ranges between 200 and 500 calories



Seasonal dishes for Summer

Black cod with warm salad of asparagus & pepper

Nobu made this dish famous, although traditionally Japan has always had it and it is called 'saikyo miso' cod. Saikyo miso is white miso, and an oily fish is marinaded in saikyo miso overnight, then grilled. Commercially known as ' black cod' it is in fact called 'sablefish' and is not in fact a member of the cod family. Its flesh is white and flaky like cod, but oilier – giving it a rich, nutty flavour preferred by chefs and gourmets. According to The Young's Lexicon of Fish, a comprehensive guide to flavour, it features "both a sweet artichoke-like note and an oily undertone'. Moshi Moshi has only recently been able to add it to the menu as being a bottom dwelling species that can live over 100 years old, it is vulnerable to over fishing, but this fishery from Alaska has in Spring 2014 gained MSC certification, so we are happy that we can now put it on our menu.

Green Bean & Sesame Salad

A stunningly simple and delicious dish of green beans in a classic sesame sauce.

Yuzu ice cream

We make our ice creams in house and this one has the real taste of summer. Yuzu is a quintessentially Japanese citrus, that is grown predominantly on Shikoku Island. It has a clean, fresh, perfumed flavour, between a mandarin and a lime.

Perhaps more than any other cuisine in the world, Japanese food is seasonal. The taste, texture - even the colour - of the food changes in close harmony with nature. It is a way of eating which ensures that the food is healthy and fresh, and which has as little impact on the environment as possible. Our seasonal dishes are best showcased by our zensai tapas dishes.
