Forgot to give the soup first. Food was slightly at room temperature but regards to taste, it’s good

Food was great. Price was great. The only thing to keep in mind is weekday happy hour is only from 9-close, which is actually 10pm! We thought we had some extra time.

The weekend close time is later so you have plenty of time for happy hour.

This is a terrific place . Four of us celebrated our daughter-in-law's birthday and were completely charmed by the food, the ambiance and most importantly the staff. All the people from the waiter to the host to the chef were attentive to our party's special dietary restrictions and we all felt very well cared for.
And the food and drinks are some of the best I've ever had.
We will return.

Food was excellent. Our waiter was attentive. Overall a great place. Just watch out for the fire hydrant when parking. We got a $47 ticket. The darned thing was painted dark green and blue; we didn’t see it.

A wet and dirty menu would seem an obvious faux pas for a restaurant wishing to attract and keep customers, but this establishment appears to have no such aspirations. I asked for another menu, and received another stained example. The other introduction was a rather glum host. Not a bad fellow, I'm sure, but not very welcoming into the restaurant. I suspect this outfit will not remain in operation for long. They've lost any signage advertising the place. Interiorly there was clearly a good effort for food preparation and service was fine--too bad the cosmetics (and hygiene) were so off-putting.

Got a reservation for 5:30pm on a Saturday, on the same night a Jazz Festival is happening in town. We were seated right away. They immediately offered us their happy hour menu & regular menu. Food, overall, was great. There was a particular dish we weren’t fond of, but it is a hit for some of their customers according to our server. Upon mentioning to her that the dish was not our cup of tea, she took it off of our final bill! That was so nice of her and we were very very grateful. Will definitely come back again to try out more of their other sushi dishes we didn’t have a chance to order as our bellies got full!

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.

Moshi Moshi is our favorite sushi place in Seattle. The staff are always amazing, the happy hour is great, and the whole room is lit up by a gigantic led cherry blossom tree.

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.
