Description: 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.

What hit us first was how friendly the staff were, Taj was excellent, very polite and informative.
It was our first visit and had intended going long before due to the good news stories we kept hearing about it. So last night we went in. Plenty of room and went straight in even though we hadn't booked. Atmosphere isn't great, loved the Caribbean music but all a bit cold with the white tables, white seats and no cloths. All drinks are bottled or canned which was fine,Red Strip in a can was good. We decided to try out a few dishes, the Fish curry was lovely and so was the jerk chicken, very tasty. The Festivals (sweet dumplings) were very disappointing, tasted like a dried out doughnut mix, but the plantain was nice, a cross between potato and banana; yeah you better believe it. Problem with the credit card machine was a buit embarrassing but they finally got it working
All in all a good experience and we will go back again and try some other new dishes

Caribbean food at its best.

Great atmosphere, would recommend the goat curry, and jerk chicken. A big thank you to Martin for squeezing us in at the last minute. we will definitely return and book in advance next time.
It is nice to go to a restaurant where you would like to return the next day,

I had a reservation here last week and i have to say that it was the best meal I have had in Swindon by far.
Staff were lovely and friendly, had great knowledge of all of the dishes and were very patient.
The food was out of this world! I have visited the caribbean many times and have to say that the food was just as good as eating it straight from Jamaica!
Considering the size and the quality of the food the prices are amazing! Defo great value for money.
I will be recommending this little gem to everyone I know!
Thank you Moshan Island Grill for a tantalising taste bud experience! I cannot wait to come back and try some other food on the menu!
