Success! Thanks for posting your review of Momofuku Noodle Bar. You’ve done the world some good today.


The chef's sister is actually one of my friends, and having lived two blocks away, I decided to finally try this place. Obviously there's been a lot of hype, so I was excited. Was I disappointed! The Pork Buns were good - though not as amazing as people have raved, but everything else was terrible. It was a party of 8, and I got the kimchi bowl (don't remeber the actual name, but it has kimchi and pork) and the rest ... view more

pork buns excellent, ramen only so so

After nearly a half hour wait, our party of three were finally seated in a communal tables. The stools for chairs were not exactly comfortable because they did not have any backs to them. If you've got a big coat, be prepare to put them on your lap, on the floor or sit on top of it. Ladies, the same goes for your handbag. Maybe it was a Friday night, so it was very crowded and the music level was such that you kind o... view more

It was alright, not as good as they say

I went with a reservation for the chicken dinner with a group of's the only way to get a reservation, apparently, getting that chicken. It was packed...I'd never wait like the swarm of people at the door were waiting. Anyhow, the chicken was good, but I'm not raving about it like some people. I wouldn't rush back for it, but it was good. Not the most comfortable place I've ever been to, that is for sure. That ... view more

Good bun

I love the decoration in this tiny place. Usually I don't like to seat at the bar because the high chairs are quite uncomfortable and the footrests are either too high to too low for me. The place gave a neat, clean, modern, organic feel. The footrest at the bar chair was slope outward. I sat quite comfortably. My friend and I visited the shop last Tuesday during lunch time. We ordered the Momofuku noodle. It was OK.... view more

It is worth trying it (a must, really)

I only looked at the first 3 reviews, but clearly this place is controversial. the place looks like a casual/trendy eatery, but the dishes are all original, mostly with some part of a pig in them. I went with friends who live next door and they knew what to order, and to be honest some dishes are drop dead stunning. I personally won't go often but its really an experience to go there at least once

Not worth the hype!

Overrated, Overrated, Overrated! Skip this place and try any number of sushi/noodle places in the east village (for much less money)! Here, you will wait two hours for small indescribable, non-creative dishes that are nothing special. (I had to go to Pomme Frite after dinner because I was so hungry!!) Unless you know the manager don't expect good service here.

not worth the price tag

we followed the recommedation from another well known restaurant guide to this Japanese noodle bar with high hopes. However it turned out to be a not so enjoyable experience. \r The first thing we noticed was that the seats were REALLY uncomfortable to sit on no to mention the elbow to elbow setting (although that's a given for any city dinning). \r After settling down with a view of the kitchen, I realized that this... view more

Poor food, good location

While this restaurant is indisputably hip, I think that food-lovers and ramen-connoisseurs will be highly disappointed in this place. If you really want a delicious bowl of ramen, this WILL disappoint you. My bowl didn't have nearly enough broth or ramen. The staff was pretentious and unsympathetic when I told them I wasn't happy with my entree, and my waitress made me feel as if I were wrong for having high expectat... view more

Don't need to go back

Were there for lunch on Sunday...not the same as going at night-not crowded, no wait. We've been there a few times before, so we decided this time to take the parents for lunch. We were seated at the bar facing each other, and a few minutes after being seated, our neighbors were kind enough to let us know they were leaving, and if we wanted to take their seats (which were better) we were welcome. So, we slid down to ... view more
