Pretty good buns and ramen, but not the same class as Ivan or Ippudo. Get there before 6 to be seated immediately, otherwise be prepared for a wait though the line does move pretty fast. You can only make a reservation if you order the 4-8 person chicken. Surprisingly their beer menu has a few good craft brews on it... More

We arrived 10 minutes before the store opens for lunch on a Friday. There were 5 people in front of us. The place is very clean looking with two types of seating, communal table or bar stools. (Much bigger than I imagined) We picked bar stools. We ordered al pastor bun and brisket bun. Both the poke sausage and brisket... More

I went to this noodle bar with my friend because of all the good reviews. We ordered the al pastor bun, brisket bun and the momofuku ramen. First, the texture of the bun bread failed. It did not even meet the average bun standard. The pork sausage tasted like falafel. Then the ramen came. The soup is extremely salted that... More

Take the time and make a reservation for the fried chicken dinner. We made ours 4 weeks before going to NYC. It is truly worth the experience and the hype is justified. Incredible chicken with great sides/sauces. Worth taking the time.

Tried once and that's just enough. You must be very very patient to eat in, not expecting anything really good food. As for the lunch place it takes far too much time. First 5 min. to be registered on the waiting list, then ~40 min. to be notified the table is about to be ready, next 10 min. to be... More

I love ramen, and I love going to exciting trendy restaurants. Momofuku for me! We had to wait about an hour or so on a Tuesday, but they take your phone number so we just had some wine next door while we waited. They are intense about only seating your party when the whole party is there (none of this... More

I finally booked one about 29 days in advance online and invited three people for the chicken dinner.upon arriving at the restaurant I noticed a "b" in the... More

We recently visited NYC over the Thanksgiving Holiday. One of our food destinations was Momofuku Noodle Bar. Anticipating the meal being served and all the excitement around us, we eagerly awaited . We ordered the shrimp and grits, pork buns, and they made us a special mushroom vegetarian dish. Took one bit of the pork bun and OMG, the oversalty... More
