Great food experience. The service is outstanding, full of flavours and textures. We ate for almost 3 hours. And they also have a passionate sommelier who helped to pair wines with our foof experience. One of the best places in NY. Worth to pay a visit.

Seventeen courses of culinary artistry were prepared before us for entertainment and pleasure. The new decor is splendid and the staff is friendly and professional. The entire evening was perfect. Definitely a place for those who love great good and experiencing new dished.

This was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend. The food is very good. The intimate environment really sets this restaurant apart. The price is very reasonable considering the small number of customers they serve each night, the quality of the produce and the patron to staff ratio. It is worth the trauma of trying to get a booking... More

It a very "young" restaurant, at an age of 50 I believe that we were the oldest there, but this was the best meal we had in NY this time. The restaurant is very buissy, noisy and small - but never mind. The food is great and I cannot wait to come back. If you like spicy food - take... More

I've heard about the restaurant from friends who visit NYC. The first hurdle was of course getting a reservation. The trick that worked for me was 'practice'. Get an account, login, and try the system a week before the date(s) you have in mind. I'd give this restaurant a 6 for ambience and a 10 for food selection. It was,... More

From start to finish, Ko is wonderful. A tiny little room with just 12 diners sitting at the kitchen bar as the 3 chefs go about their work. Only a couple of wait staff needed as all they really have to do is pour the wine and clear plates...the chefs do all the serving. We went for dinner and chose... More

When you are enjoying the food so much as well as the conversation with the chef, on top of the experience of watching your food getting prepared, the 3 hours spent at the restaurant just flies. I would definitely return if I am ever so lucky to lock in another session whilst I am in NY again.

We had the 16 course lunch and every single one was amazing. The two Michelin Stars are truly deserved. With wine and tip we landed on $300 per person but it was worth every dollar. The best meal I've ever had. It's definitely worth the struggle to get a table. No mobile phones are allowed so you can eat in... More

We were lucky enough to get a booking at Momofuku Ko on our recent visit to NY. Bookings only occur 10 days out so I stayed up late to secure a booking and it was definitely worth it! The food was absolutely amazing and it is a fantastic experience to watch the chefs up close in action. The service was... More

I had asked myself if waking up before 7am (pacific) for 3 days in a row to try to nab a reservation (3rd time's the charm) was going to be worth it. It definitely was. The restaurant itself is very small; like others have mentioned, only 12 seats in front of the kitchen. The stools are actually pretty comfortable as... More
