I went here with a group a friends and we had the Fried Chicken special, as well as a number of other dishes. All the noodle dishes were fantastic . The chilled spicy noodles is one of the spiciest foods I have ever eaten, so order that with care. All the salads listed as "spring" were unique and very tasty,... More

While I've heard the ramen here is top notch, this review is based solely on the fried chicken tasting menu. I've done it twice, with mixed results. The first time I went, I remember thinking that this was some of the best fried chicken I ever ate, particularly the Korean style. Mixing it together with the mu shy pancakes and... More

The inability to make reservations actually isn't a bother, as it's nice to have a little freedom with your schedule in this fun neighborhood with plenty of bars and snack spots. We ventured over on a Saturday night shortly after 7:00 PM. We were told it'd be a 30-45 minute wait...probably took every minute of that 45, but it was... More

I've been to Momofuku in july 2014 and i ate the best ramen ever! The place is really small so be ready to wait for a long time in line but it's really worth it (You should go there around 7/7.30). You can also watch the chefs while they cook your delicious plate! The area is amazing: the east village... More

I just traveled to Tokyo recently and had been craving Japanese ramen noodles ever since. I've heard of Momofuku for years and just tried it for the first time. It was jus the way I remembered and so delicious! I went there near the closing time for lunch (3:30 pm) so I'm not sure if that's the reason but the... More

Great restaurant in the East Village. THey don't take reservations - you just show up and wait your turn. Great neighborhood to walk around in while you wait. Great bakery around the corner for dessert-Vienieros.

Went here for dinner our first night in NY with Brooklyn resident friends who recommended it. A busy Friday night so had to wait, and crowded once seated. But the food was great. Share some rice cakes with sauce, a couple folks had various buns which were great, and a couple had different noodle bowls which were also great. You... More

I lived in Japan for 9 years and coming back to the states, it's been very hard to find ramen that even comes close. I had the Momofuku Ramen and it was absolutely delicious. The noodles had texture and weight to them and had that slight chewiness that is makes perfectly cooked ramen so awesome! If my stomach wasn't so... More
