Website shows vegetarian and vegan menus but neither are available at the restaurant.
This restaurant looked really nice, but unfortunately the service was awful. I booked in advance and the server was seemingly irritated because my name wasn’t written in their scheduling book - which wasn’t my fault, as I had made a reservation online, so I’m unsure as to why the schedule wasn’t updated manually on their end. It wasn’t very busy, but the server made us wait while she sat other walk-ins down before us. When we were seated, we weren’t given any menus after waiting for 10 minutes. The servers were walking around and watching the tables but nobody had attended to us. The other tables received menus very promptly, even the tables seated after us. I had to get up to find menus but they weren’t the right ones. When we finally got the attention of another server, she was very rude and returned with a single menu despite the fact that there were 3 of us dining. When we asked her if we could please have more menus for each person, rolled her eyes and walked to get another 2 menus. After waiting some more, we decided to move to the sushi bar/train area because we felt very uncomfortable with the atmosphere. We were made to feel very unwelcome. There wasn’t much food on the train and the variety was even worse. When we tried to pay we had to wait another 10 minutes while servers walked past us and ignored us even though they were seemingly free. We had to go to the main register to ask someone to count the plates for us so we could pay and leave. The original server helped us and she was even ruder than before. I don’t normally write negative reviews for places as I feel very bad for doing so, but this experience was that uncomfortable that I felt it was necessary. I have never been treated like this in a restaurant before. I tried to be courteous by booking ahead and our entire group was very polite. It doesn’t make any sense to me to be treated that way and it was very disappointing as we were trying to have a nice family dinner.
Full a la carte menu is not available until 5:30 although bookings start earlier. Limited selection on train early but items ordered from the sushi menu which is available early were fresh and tasty. Scallop nigiri was a highlight. Booth seating inside near train was popular with lots of families with children for an early dinner.
This is the 3rd time I have been to this place. The food is amazeing as ever. The food is small in portion compared to price but acceptable. The katsu pork that I have was not so good. Over cooked.
This is definitely our FAVOURITE choice for ‘date night’ - ask the manager to make you his sake caipirinha (not on the menu but tell him Liz & Abbe sent you!). And do NOT miss the wagyu aburi. Delicious!
The food and surroundings were excellent. The waiting staff seemed bored, disinterested and I almost felt that my daughters and I were an inconvenience to them for being there. A simple smile and minimal enthusiasm is all I ask. It was a real shame, first time I’ve not given a tip in an awful long time!!
Fantastic food and drink, beautiful surroundings, lovely staff. Lots of unique options including plenty of gluten free.
The food was absolutely amazing, the service was brilliant, and we would 100% recommend this to anyone!!!
No concerns. Enjoyed our meal
Food was amazing!
Food was average, waitresses were really helpful thou.
Delicious and most enjoyable
Seating for 2/4 at table was on stone wall with no back. Small dishes came out one at a time rather than at once as per a degustation. Drinks about halfway through. Food was ok, but not great so not worthy of price. Beautiful setting but pop music, even if Japanese, detracted from setting.
Nice food, poor service
Great atmosphere and vibe, food was a little hit and miss few dishes lacked flavour but the others were great
The quality and menu has deteriorated since we were last here 2 yrs ago. Quite disappointed last night. None of our favs on the menu- not so flavoursome and none of my wine choices -3 out of 4 red wines on the menu - “not available “. Such a shame. This used to be a fav in Bris- won’t go back again.
Fabulous... the best Japanese in town!
Amazing food, loved the Japanese decor, and authentic Japanese outfits worn by the staff. Staff were friendly, food came out very quickly, great range of options!
Always a good experience.
Delicious Japanese food, good service and excellent value. One of my favourites.

Dine with the 'modern girls'
Located in the in the bustling restaurant hub of Rosalie Village in Paddington rests Moga (‘the modern girl’), an exciting modern Japanese eatery with a superior edge. This informal Japanese diner has got hot coal grilled meats, market fresh sashimi and sushi as well as salads, soups and tasty gyoza. All the dishes are beautifully presented and trust us they taste as good as they look. Dine alfresco in the tranquil garden space, inside in the modern beautifully decorated dining room or up at the circulating sushi train - there’s something for everyone and every occasion. For the ultimate accompaniment try one of their sake inspired cocktails. For superior sushi, dine with the modern girl.
Best dish: Pork Kushi skewered pork belly, celery, shichimi pepper, bbq teriyaki
