My favorite sushi place in Seattle. Always fresh, always good, always great service. Atmosphere is nice with 2 stories and big lighted cherry blossom tree in the center makes a nice focal point.

The sushi was good - which is rather the norm at most Seattle sushi restaurants but should be noted. The prices are nice as well with most rolls in the $9 - $14 range. My only challenge is the tables being super close/packed in. Frankly, it is less a hip vibe, and more loud, communal seating with strangers. If you would like to have a good conversation with your date, this is definitely not the right spot to pick. However, if you love those hectic, bustling, noisy places, this is a solid choice for sushi.

It was our first time to Moshi Moshi and my wife and I had a very nice experience. We pretty much went with the sushi and two orders of tempura. Tempura was excellent (albeit, small portions), and the sushi was very good. Good service, lively atmosphere. We would go back for sure.

We had family in town for Thanksgiving weekend, and what could be better than Sushi the next day? There were 8 in our party with a variety of dietary preferences, including vegetarians and gluten-free diners. We are all happy and full by the end of the meal. Also, the Japanese Margarita cocktail was excellent.

The sushi and nigiri is fresh, well prepared and presented, the ambiance is friendly and not intrusive. The place has a comfortable and welcoming vibe. And if you can arrange to be at the sushi bar while the chef is filleting a whole flounder, just that is worth the price of admission. Very skilled with the knife. Great spot for sushi in Ballard.

The best sushi in the neighborhood and one of the top places in Seattle. In our family of four, Moshi Moshi gets requested the most for special occasions like birthdays and graduations. We usually ask the chef to make us a combo plate (omakase) with the only limit being gluten-free components, and he always delivers something amazing. Such excellent service. The quality of their fish is outstanding, and their selection is consistently good.

I always respect a place that treats our children as the experienced world diners with well-developed palates that they are. We appreciate the kindness and recommendations and the welcoming of their questions about food source and preparation. This isn’t The Best sushi in town, but their offerings are decent and servings are good value and nicely presented.

Weve eaten a lot of great sushi having lived in Asia for 9 years so I don’t say this lightly when I say Moshi Moshi Sushi is in our top three best sushi experiences.

Comparing Moshi Moshi Sushi to other Seattle venues, well, let’s just say Seattle’s so called best don’t need to look over their shoulders because Moshi Moshi left them standing at the start line.

The service complimented the great sushi making for a very memorable experience. We will most definitely be going back.

Food was good but service was slow, very bad. Server spilled our beer when pouring and didn't even acknowledge it. We had to flag her down to get a towel to wipe it up. Place was half full yet it took 45 minutes for our sushi order to arrive. Pretty highly priced for such bad service. Pass.

This was our first visit to Moshi Moshi. Sushi and sashimi was fresh and well-presented. Agadashi tofu was especially tasty. Our waiter was very efficient and extremely pleasant, and helpful with suggestions and recommendations. Sitting upstairs was lovely and private for our group of six, with lighting from the "cherry tree" providing unique ambiance. A bit pricey for pretty standard dishes and rolls, but overall a very good experience.

I have been here twice and have not been disappointed. The rolls are reasonably priced with most of the regular rolls being $12 or less, plus the special rolls are usually going to run around 15-17. We ordered 3 rolls for 2 people plus some edamame and sashimi which was plenty of food. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for food was one of the special rolls we ordered was underwhelming - would not recommend getting the spider roll, it was nothing too flavorful although everything in it was definitely of good quality
