I had been here twice before, and definitely wanted to come back. We had to travel a bit to get to this restaurant, but that is all worth it. We paid 42€ per person for a three-course meal, each course consisting of several small bites (like you would eat tapas or sushi). Our favorites were: the sea bass ceviche with... More

3 couples went there for dinner, we had it at the terrace on a nice summer night, and we just paid too much for little food. I will not discuss about fusion or not.. for me those flavours are not fusion, I am too used to them, but going to eat to a restaurant and leave with hunger is the... More

We have been to this places a couple of times and every time we are very happy with it. It's the only place in The Hague where you can taste something that is not the usual thing! In this restaurant you can't choose what to have, there is a fixed menu that changes every now and then. So you have... More

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

I have been at least 6 times and was never disapointed. I actually brought different people everytime because I want everyone I know to discover this restaurant. Explosion of colors and flavours in every bite

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!

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.
