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."
"Pork belly, Poke the poached egg an let it slip into the noodles!"

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.

Spicy Cucumber salad is amazing. Try the signature noodle dish and you will not be disappointed, sweet pork, savory broth, and a wonderful presentation. The atmosphere can be loud, seating is communal, and there is usually a wait... bit if it's under 40 minutes do it!

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.

The best thing I had was the fried egg bun (2 per order). If I came back again, I'd probably come for the buns, rather than the ramen. The wavy noodles were not very good overall; the texture was all wrong and I almost felt like I was biting into raw doughy middles. The bowls of ramen are not impressive. In the Momofuku ramen, the meat was very well made, and the broth was good. The Spicy Miso Ramen also had a nice chicken base broth, but the chicken was slightly overcooked. However, the toppings other than the meat contributed little to the authenticity and flavor composition of the entire bowl. Portions seemed smaller than other ramen shops in the city. Since I came a little over half an hour before the restaurant opened (this restaurant gets rather busy), I sat at the kitchen bar, which allowed me to watch the production of various bun dishes (beautiful!). The overall kitchen seems organized, clean, and well-run; the chef called the dishes to be made and he checked and cleaned the rims of all the plates/bowls before sending them out. Service was okay, but the server didn't smile once while my party was seated in the store.

Famous around the web and social media for its noodles, what actually impressed me at Momofuku Noodle Bar was their buns. I ordered and thoroughly enjoyed the brisket, which along with the other options of pork belly, shrimp, chicken and egg; comes in 2 traditional Chinese steamed buns. If you are Asian and/or have significant exposure to authentic Japanese food and especially ramen, I would recommend you to just skip the ramen entirely and just order a few different buns at the restaurant. In a nutshell, the noodles were average, but the buns were interesting and tasty.

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.
