I visited Momofuku with my wife and adult son on a Sunday in September of 2018. The menu was incredibly varied and exotic, the prices reasonable for an upscale NYC restaurant. Reservations were hard to get, but no problem seating us when we arrived. Modest wine list. The food was very tasty and I recommend this place, so long as you know it's exotic and not American comfort food.

I’d never tried bao buns before going to Momofuku, but they were amazing and now I’m hooked. The off menu rice dish was great too. It was made of fried rice flour balls and was so filling and carb heavy, but just brilliant. Also good were the ribs.

It’s a tapas-like menu, so lots of small plates for tasting which means you get to try lots of different stuff.

I wasn’t wild on the cocktail list, but others might be.

All in all, a super fun and interesting dinner and the buns were to die for.

Got a last minute table on a Sunday night. Has a great time. Excellent service and great food selection. Had mostly small points, worth the trip!

I wanted to go since I saw a Netflix show and we weren’t disappointed! So many great flavors, presentations and combinations. The pork buns, Peking duck and herring were the big hits but everything was good. It’s busy so make reservations. Staff was great too.

We went for dinner with a couple and our kids and everything was amazing!

We had a variaty of plates to share and everything was delicious, full of flavor and surprising ingredients.

Definitely a must visit!
