Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our second lunch and I am happy we have finally found this place. The ramen was tasty and great value and the pork tonkutsu was perfect. Plenty of small dishes for sharing options on the menu and I would be happy to return.

What a wonderful find. A lovely welcoming place with great food. The tempura was excellent, the sushi soft and we enjoyed the pork starter. Will we be back? Definitely. My only piece of advice would be to call before you go to make sure they...are open.More

I have written about 5 reviews for this restaurant, but i feel it's only fair that i write up all visits. The service and food were excellent as usual with the Beef Tataki and Prawn Tempura at the top of my list this time. Staff...were at the top of their game as usual with very little waiting time between courses. Will be back.More

Just abuse about it 😉 Tonkotsu ramen were pretty good too but the best was the banana spring roll desert !!! So yummy and excellent one ! I will come back for sure 😍More

Back again for our Friday date, food and service were fantastic as usual with lovely fresh Salmon Sashimi, followed by miso soup, and then the Garlic Prawns and Teriyaki Chicken. Being BYO and in the Entertainment book certainly makes it a top cheap and cheerful.

I am very glad to report that, having had dinner at MoriMori after a protracted absence, this Izakaya is still serving up the most yummy Japanese food in it's charming setting. Last night, it was really busy and the two waitstaff were doing really well...keeping up with orders and keeping everyone happy. We had bent boxes. They were very generous in size and beautifully presented. There is a variety of options - beef, chicken,prawn,pork. I had beef - unusual for me but I did enjoy it. The drinks list is extensive, with a good selection of wine and sake, as well as beer and non alcoholic offerings. Delicious.More

Called in after movie again and found it very quiet. Also very cold in the restaurant. Sashimi very good as usual but the Spicy Pork a little to spicy for some. Our favourite Chicken Teriyaki was as good as ever as was the Miso Soup....Will be back.More

Been here a couple of times and food always great. One time the place was crowded but the other time pretty empty and unfortunately quite cold which was a bit shock to our visitors from Australia in particular. Need more heaters!

I visit MoriMori regularly for lunch. Personal and attentive service, authentic and delicious cuisine, and cozy decor. I brought my mother along for dinner recently and she adored it as well, as a regular they gave us a free ice-cream which was a really thoughtful...gesture, they are lovely people!More
