Good food. Nice service

We had Korean bolgogi and very good kimchi. Specialty sushi rolls were also good. Not 5 star only due to a lack of ambiance. Our server was very pleasant. This is a good casual spot for Korean/Japanese when you are not prepared to spend a small fortune

Sushi was ok. Eel sushi was great. Bulgogi is about par with most. Meat was not too juicy. Sweet and sour pork was better than usual Asian restaurants. Kids thought individual noodle bowls were ok.

Stopped in for lunch, the waiter was very helpful with the menu even going as far as to bring out the various sauces. Husbands kampung I chicken was amazing! My noodle bowl with bolgagi sauce was delicious as well. Definitely will come back on our next visit!

Was treated like a king. The food eas very good, nice portions, tasty and efficient. The restaurant is immaculately clean, having an open kitchen helps keep things tidy. Looking forward to return tonight.

If you've been searching for a family owned Japanese restaurant that makes their own sauces fresh and doesn't use MSG...then we've finally found it for you! We were looking for a dining experience that wasn't a chain restaurant while driving around Gainesville, FL. This little gem is tucked away in front of a shopping center. As you enter the restaurant,... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants! Everything we've had here is always great. We love the sushi and the ginger salad. My fiancé has tried some other dishes besides sushi and they've all been great too.

Momoyaki is a Japanese restaurant on SW 34th Street in Gainesville (it sits between 34th and Archer). It's slightly hidden as it sits in the back part of a larger building, so you'll want to look for the sign along the road (especially if you're heading east). The interior isn't upscale by any means, but it's still visually pleasing and... More

My step-sister and I wanted good sushi, but didn't want just any sushi. (I'm very weary of people who serve sushi because raw fish isn't something to mess with.) We went to Momoyaki because it was close to our apartment. The inside is beautiful and so much bigger than I had imagined. It isn't a hole-in-the-wall at all. We both... More

Tucked in a little out of the way storefront Momoyaki provides Korean, Japanese and sushi dishes without equal. I've returned again and again since "discovering" this gem sampling chicken, seafood and soups. Fantastic!

This is the second time we have eaten at Momoyaki, and it was good enough both times that I felt the need to write a review. No one in my party has had the sushi when I went, so I can't attest to the quality of that, but their Korean dishes are excellent. I tried the boolgogi and the bibimbap... More
