David Chang's Asian-accented American fare comes with an open kitchen, spare decor & dinner crowds.- Google
"I decided to opt for the pork buns and the spicy miso ramen."
"If you do have to go to Noodle Bar definitely get the kimchi."

Have been wanting to check this place out for a long time- finally get to, it's an hour wait upon arrival and it's only an hour tell closing time- so with it being that packed I would think this place was amazing. I ordered the spicy shrimp steam bun, portion sizes decent- flavor nothing except shrimp so it was quite boring, soy sauce cooked egg now mind you 1 egg cut in half for 9$. It was good however a more squired taste I believe. A nice experience. Last I orders the scallion ginger noodle bowl it comes with no broth. This was ok- nothing I was crazy about. So with that said, I don't find this place worth the weights or the money.

We just had a disastrous experience at this restaurant, not necessarily from the quality of the food (altho' the momofuku ramen soup base was a bit salty) but because of the customer service exhibited by the person who presented herself as the manager whose name is miranda. She exhibited poor customer service, was rude, and was not accomodating. I'm a fan of David Chang's cooking but if he has managers like Miranda who does not care about the customer experience, I'll have second thoughts visiting his other restaurants. I certainly won't come back to this branch and you bet I'll be telling my friends about this bad experience.

It wasn't too busy for lunch on Thursday; the momofuku ramen tasted great, good hit of umami with al dente noodles (but I also felt the salt afterwards). Portion size was a little smaller than that of other ramen joints, but, subsequently, it didn't make me feel like I just ate a hippopotamus.

Well, to start out with we were skipped over to be seated 3 times by our hostess, second 7 dollars for a craft beer that tasted like water down gunnies is where it all started to go down hill. I went to the restaurant with my girlfriend and two other friends, and while I am not a fan of asian cuisine in general, the other three are. None of them liked their meals and I did not enjoy mine as well, it tasted like they gave me a dog treat on a bun. Finally our server did a very poor job. I serve tables in Ocean city NJ during the summer and my restaurant gets mobbed so I understand what it is like to be slammed, however he made no attempted to ask us how everything was or to refill any of our beverages, in fact he came up to the table looked at us, said nothing and walked away. Now, I am never someone who stiffs a server, however i wanted to.He did not work to earn the 20 percent i gave him. I would not ever go back to this restaurant, there are better spots in Philadelphia then this place.

Be prepared for a long wait; this place is always crowded. Once you're seated, the food is fantastic. Not the best in the city, but top notch decor and atmosphere. Ramen quality is great, broth was good but not the best. Pork buns were a little too fatty for me but delicious nonetheless.

Came here for dinner with a friend of mine. My first suggestion, don't come during peak hours! Generally the wait will be a good 30-45 minutes if not more! That being said, during our wait to be seated we were offered drinks which was great. The one issue is that there is nominal seating throughout the entire restaurant, even at the bar and you're stuck to an area by the door. This gets pretty annoying after a while with all the foot traffic and wind from the streets, especially during the winter. That being said, once we got seated the food is great! If you're a fan of asian cuisine you'll definitely enjoy Momofuku. From what I recall the menu is fairly limited but you're able to mix it up with different types of noodles. Service here was great. Hostess and waiter were exceptionally accommodating during our dinner.

2.5 Stars HYPED UP ASIAN NOODLES IN SOUP! Come if you really want to see what the fuss is about.. Party of 3, Tuesday, 7:20pm. Arrived and was told it would be a 20 minute wait. Ended up being 40 minute wait. Whatever the hostess says, you should times that by x2 time-wise. People who came in pairs were seated much faster, so come here when you have 2 people in your party. The hostess can take your drink orders as you wait for a seat. Drinks ordered the spiced pear soju slush. Comes in two sizes: $6 (extra-large shot glass) / $12 (Glass of water sized) -- Would go for the $12 size, more bang for buck. Meal Ordered: $15 - Spicy Miso Ramen -- Very oily, salty, noodles were cooked pretty good though. -- Came with smoked chicken, poached eggs, scallions. -- Soup was not too spicy, but it had a $16 - Momofuku Ramen -- Lighter broth, still salty as the salt flats. -- Pork belly well cooked and soft -- Poached egg and scallions The entire experience was totally not worth the wait. Seating is very cramped and felt like eating next to my jail mates in the cafeteria. You can either sit at the noodle bar or in the sea of mini tables, but either option will leave you squeezing between or on top of other eaters. Atmosphere is loud and proud. Service was pretty attentive, water was refilled constantly...it's almost like the waiters knew the meal was too salty.

Got the momofuku ramen. Positives: pork belly and shredded pork and the noodles; low lights: Broth and the egg. The broth wasnt hitting my taste buds in the right way or at least what im used to others might like it. The egg was extremely runny where even the egg whites were undercooked. Coudlce been a busy night or maybe i was just expecting more.
