“Fun Place - Good Food - Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Menu is limited. Total menu was 4 small dishes, 4 large dishes, a couple of sides, and 2 desserts. Went for lunch with my husband and we split all 4 "small dishes," which was enough food. Seemed to be duck and pork day, which was fine with us. Service knew all of the wines and beers they had on their menu - drink menu bigger than food menu - gotta love that! Just a fun, very NYC kind of place.

“Decent place if you're in the area though doesn't stand out in a city like New York”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

I was keen to visit Momofuku Noodle Bar as I'd heard so much about the Momofuku chain. Whilst our visit was enjoyable and the food was good it didn't blow me away. We had ramen and both the shrimp and pork buns - both enjoyable but not memorable. The vibe is buzzy and the service was efficient if a little aloof. If you're in the area and you want a quick lunch then by all means drop by but for a special dinner perhaps think about one of the other Momofuku restaurants or somewhere else altogether.

“Pretty Awesome Ramen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Went for lunch, with pretty high expectations, which were fulfilled, mostly. The pork buns were good, but not great, however the Momofuku Ramen was completely awesome. Finally the Sage soft serve ice cream was the perfect ending to lunch. No wait, great service, reasonable price.

“5 Stars ***** Hands down best meal in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

May 2013: went out to dinner with my wife. Quaint setting, communal style seating on stools. Food is finger licking good! Ordered the Pork Buns which were awesome and wife ordered the veg Shiitake Buns which she loved. We also ordered the Momofuku Ramen, pork and poached egg, noodles, and Ginger Scallion Noodles.
Topped this off with some chilled Sake
Desert was Pancake Truffles...

Awesome food. Highly recommended
