Some background: I'm American, lived in the Netherlands for years, and I have been all over Asia for months at a time. Also, I really don't like shellfish or plantains. So you would think me a fool take a chance on a place that specializes in all of the things that I either don't like or have high standards for.... More

Yesterday we took some friends to Mochi for dinner and as always we went home with happy faces! The fixed menu is always very delicious and interesting. The asian-latin fusion is so nice. The fixed meny consists of 3 times four smaller dishes. It started with an oyster in a pepper-lime sauce. I'm not an oyster person, but this one... More

We walked in looking forward to this dinner after reading the reviews. Lovely interior. We received beautiful looking dishes to share between 4. However impressive it was, we were slightly disappointed as we expected larger sizes. Service was friendly but extremely slow, seeing the restaurant was far from full. We walked out, unfortunately, hungry. We paid a high bill, not... More

Came here for a birthday celebration. The food was fusion between Latin American and Asian flavours. If you are an adventurous and easygoing eater this is a great place to try out new foods and interesting flavour combinations! There is no menu so you simply tell the waiter if you have certain food intolerances and how many courses you want... More

We had the most incredible meal, every mouthful was a taste sensation! Unusual combinations that work really well together and I tasted several foods I'd never eaten before! The restaurant is cosy and the chef and his wife were very friendly and relaxed.

AMAZING!... If you want to try different food, this is the place! Definitely nothing that you have tried before. The whole experience is very creative, since you don't know what you are going to get. Great idea! So you don't have to spend 15 minutes thinking what you should order...No mistakes, the surprise is awesome!

Having only read reviews about Mochi, three of us arrived at 1800 and were told there would not be a menu, but three courses would be prepared by the chef and served over the course of the evening. I had forgotten that the entire service would take hours and that is the only draw back for our group. The entire... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and it is always great. The food and the staff are very good. When you visit the restaurant you have a menu and it always includes the specialty of the house, the frikandel. This is not a regular Dutch frikandel from the FEBO but the haute cuisine version.

At this place i've had the best meal in ages! There's no a la carte meal but every dish was amazing! With so much love and care. Unbelievable! Not the cheapest meal there is but when you've got something to celebrate...

Description
Mochi was born out of pure love! Patrick Buyze and Lissette Parra created a concept that intertwined both of their passion for travel and food. The restaurant offers a unique style of community dining serving Japanese-Latin American inspired dishes. The "Chefs Choice Menu" allows room for creativity and variety. With each course, you are served several distinct dishes to share and experience a journey of flavors like our famous Frikandel Speciaal.

Aside from the menu there are a few classic items that can be ordered like the Pizza Sashimi, Bonito Waved Tiger Prawns and Hirado Asparagus. This innovative "new style" of cooking was influenced during both of their extensive travels around the world including Japan, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Colombia, Argentina, Brasil and many others which led to this success.
