“Delicious ramen”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I had heard so much hype about all the momofuke restaurants that I was a bit hesitant about going. I expected to wait to be seated as they don't accept reservations but we only had to wait about 15/20 minutes. It was worth the hype! The ramen was excellent as were the buns. Despite it being so popular, the staff were great and friendly. We also ate the special ice cream which was great. Definitely worth the trip.

“Great pork ramen”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Followed the reviews and tried MNB twice while in NYC recently. The restaurant is serious about its food, and the pork ramen noodles were excellent.

“The pork bun is dream...”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were visiting and it was one of spot on the list. We were there for late lunch about 2pm and we had queue for about half n hour.

Atmosphere was like any Ramen place, busy and bustling! Had ramen, pork buns and kimchi! The kimchi was good, it was well balanced. Sometimes, kimchi can be too sour but this was not had a good balance. I even bought David Chang's cookbook for the kimchi recipe. :D The ramen was good, again great balance! The killer dish was the pork bun! It was sooooooo good! i still dream about it... Will visit again just for the pork bun!

“Late lunch”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We went for a late lunch so we didn't have to wait to be seated. The menu is very small and printed on plain white paper but I believe that is because they change their menu often. We took the pork buns and the Momofuku ramen. We liked both and we liked the ambiance of the restaurant. We would go back.
