    Although reserved, the table was taken when we arrived on time. Was offered bar table and my date declined. Informed booth would take an hour wait, thus we took bar table. After order was taken, they offered us a much better seating upstairs, which we took. They scored a few points on customer service as they have done so respectably. Sat through two water glasses and some silly chopsticks as fangs stunts just to pass the time by, it turned out our order was lost just because we were moved upstairs. Plenty others who arrived after us got their food before we did. Food was fabulous, but maybe because we were starving? It was when we got the bill that we were disappointed as I believe they should've compensated somehow for their mess up.

    This is a great restaurant for sushi lovers. The fish was fresh and the rolls were creative and delicious. They will make custom rolls if you ask. The service was attentive and friendly. If you book online tell them if you have minors in your party. They have limited space and some seating in the bar. They had a booth in the bar set up for us but since we arrived with kids they opened the upstairs. It was great up there, too.

    I have eaten at the restaurant twice now and both times I was very impressed by the quality of the fish. I went for happy hour the first time, there were a lot of choices at a reasonable price and the second was for dinner. The specialty rolls and sushi are fresh light and of the highest quality. A very good sushi restaurant in Ballard!

    Sushi was okay but lacked the presentation we appreciate in outstanding sushi restaurants. Soy sauce pitcher was empty when we went to use it. The best part of the meal was the cookie roll dessert.

    I loved the Geisha roll and the Green Garden roll the most out of everything we ordered. Our server was terrific and even comped us the sushi ice cream roll since it was my son's birthday. It was our first time there and had a lovely window table with only about 1 hour notice. We had a great evening.

    We had a guest come in from out of town and wanted to show them around our local neighborhood. Moshi Moshi provides Sushi that is as a beautiful as it is delicious. The variety of sushi options to order from has something for everyone. The setup inside is great, it's spacious and open yet there is still an intimate feel once you sit down. Price point isn't the most affordable but the quality of food is more than worth it. Sophie San Roll and the Golden Garden roll are mouth watering!

    Got a reservation about an hour before we arrived. The hostess called 10 minutes before our reservation and stated that our table was a few minutes behind, therefore we arrived late. At that time, the table was ready. Perfect timing with the advanced notice. Sat down and they immediately brought waters while we waited for our server. Our server then recommended some drinks and her favorite rolls. We ordered the items. My one complaint was that for how busy the bar was (not that busy), the drinks took a really long time. But they were excellent quality and made deliciously. Then The food came out, and all of it was really great quality. Wasn't in love with the Moshi Moshi roll. But that's just me. Recommend the restaurant. We will be back.

    While the restaurant food, service and ambience is fine what was really disappointing was there was a nail sticking out of the bench seat which lead to two big holes in a very expensive pair of pants. The server and the hostess were not phased by it at all. Their response was thanks for letting us know. A sincere apology from management with a gesture for make good would have gone a long ways to building customer loyalty. Disappointing experience.

    I love Moshi Moshi sushi. Their rolls are light and fresh. When I go for sushi I don't want tempura or seared anything, I like the more simple sushi and sashimi and Moshi does a great job with that (they have more elaborate rolls too but everything tends to be on the lighter side). I imagine Moshi sushi being more 'traditional' sushi than the fried rolls with cream cheese types. Their wild sockeye sashimi is amazing along with the Geisha roll. I don't think I could go to Moshi and not order those two things!
