Some sushi menus read like a roll-call of endangered species, but not at Moshi Moshi Sushi. This conveyer-belt joint above Liverpool Street station has had sustainability at the forefront of its operation since opening in 1994. As well as ethical sourcing, the team here innovate using less common varieties such as Cornish dogfish: used in place of endangered eel. Despite the dogfish being less rich than classic barbecued unagi, it made a pretty decent substitution in a temaki hand roll – though the rice was slightly overdone. Sashimi and nigiri followed suit: all impeccable in quality, bar the rice.
Another accolade of the restaurant is to have pioneered the kaiten (conveyer belt) sushi trend in London. Two decades on, the interior still has a futuristic feel, though it’s just a little worn around the edges. The best seats in the house are inside the dramatic curved wooden pods at the back of the restaurant, where office workers congregate for an intimate post-work natter and a glass of plum wine or Japanese beer. Seats by the conveyor belt allow you to eye up the dishes before you choose.
