Liverpool Street Station
London EC2M 7QA
Moshi Moshi, the original kaiten (conveyor belt) sushi restaurant in the UK, is celebrating its 20th birthday in July and August with superb birthday dishes, free treats, special events and 1994 bargain prices.
20 years ago, Moshi Moshi opened in Liverpool Street Station to an astounded and hugely positive reception from critics and diners. It is fair to say that most Londoners had never seen anything like it.
Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall was there, and says: “Walking into Moshi Moshi was one of the most memorable first impression moments of my restaurant-reviewing career. The location, the design, the buzz….but being suspended in a cool glass capsule over the rail tracks…would have counted for nothing it if wasn’t for the outstanding quality of the sushi.”
Maintaining its reputation for serving some of the best food within the now highly competitive London Japanese restaurant scene, Caroline Bennett and her team still lead with their innovative and delicious dishes and commitment to sustainably caught fish.
The birthday celebrations will be staggered over the coming few weeks.
On Monday 28th July Moshi Moshi will be charging 1994 prices at the sushi counter, with the cheapest plate price at 90p, and the most expensive at £2.50.
If poetry is your thing, compose a haiku on Thursday 31st July, based on the changes in your life since 1994, to be in with a chance to win dinner for two.
Hidden golden tickets on the conveyor belt dishes on Friday 1st August will bring prizes to several winners.
And on Thursday 7th August, Moshi Moshi’s 20 favourite dishes from the past 20 years will be served.
