I had read the mixture of reviews but wanted to try Momofuku for myself. The degustation meal was superb. The qauntit was great - I love trying lots of dishes. The dishes were inventive, beautifully presented and delicious. Of the 14 different things we tried, there was only one dish that we thought was a miss - everything else was... More

To watch "celebrity" chefs on tv, verse watching chefs in action in font of you- the difference; chalk and cheese. Being an industry person, and knowing the "language" of a working kitchen, the experience of being ringside to the Main Event was awe inspiring. Each dish was executed with perfect precision. From a ceviche of military snail; to the WA... More

Had extremely high expectations for our dinner date at Momofuku. Service was great, attentive & friendly. Food wise we were surprised that the 3 initial snacks were counted towards the 12 course. Flavours wise were on the spicy, Caribbean style which were great but not amazing. I'd still say it's worth a visit for the experience & since the menu... More

Was very excited to visit Momofuku, but severely disappointed after the visit. Ordered everything off the bar menu and a few specials. Most of the dishes were heavily over seasoned and/or really salty. Pork chops were so over cooked and dry that it was impossible to swallow. Chicken wings so salty that we had to send them back. Every dish... More

We walked in early for the bar menu prior to attending a performance at the Lyric Theatre. We had the bar menu which was comprehensive and delicious. The service was great as they kept in mind out time restraints. Chef Paul Carmichael mingled and chatted. The Scorpion fist was a standout.

We had such a beautiful evening experiencing the delights of Momofuku, 14 courses all presented with great detail and the flavours amazing. Most of the team/staff where very attentive however we did find the Sommelier to be slightly abrupt and her details of the pairings was not personal more like a memorized script, this is the only reason we didn't...

Came here to celebrate my birthday and the experience was very disappointing. The place was very loud and busy and we could barely hear each other talk. The hefty price they charge does not reflect the quality and taste of the dishes provided. Some dishes were good and some were awful. They used too much cheese in the dishes and... More

Dining was an adventure. We enjoyed all courses and presentations of food. We're slightly disappointed with the beverage pairings, next time would try the juice pairings instead.

I had booked a table for my partner and I as a surprise dinner for his birthday. Unfortunately things did not go to plan and we were over half an hour late. We called through worried that they will cancel our booking but thank goodness they didn't! Staff was friendly and welcomed us as we finally arrived. The atmosphere was... More
