How anyone could enjoy this restaurant is beyond me! The food was definitely mediocre & way too salty! The wine choice, if you can call it a choice, is appalling.

I wasn't keen on the look of the place inside or out but I have no hesitation in recommending the food. The 'look' has grown on me and I enjoy the feel of the place and the great food.

Very good and efficient service. All dishes were judged as very good and authentically tasty in the Caribbean style. Very nice ambience and good choice of beer and wine. Not first time and never been disappointed.

Come and sit back and relax at Moshan (pronounced mo'shan) unwind with a few cocktails, listen to some chilled out reggae and of course enjoy some delicious home cooked food, which is all cooked to order. We have an exclusive reggae bar and lounge available to customers to spend the evenings (currently open Saturday nights only) Our dishes are authentic and include a fusion of flavours from around the Caribbean. We are Wiltshires best Caribbean restaurant, and if you don't have time to come in and eat we have a takeaway a few minutes away... Good music, good food, good vibes.
