Best place in Durham, amazing food with a fun twist
The pork buns maybe the best meal I have had in Durham. Outstanding service, creative drinks. Highly recommend this place!
Bartender and chef both provided exceptional service. Bao buns were my favorite part.
Great food. Great service. Great night.
Every time I go here the food is consistently excellent
Love this type of food and the creativity of this restaurant! Service was outstanding and food was delicious. The pork steamed buns left me wanting for just a little more flavor and the Fire Noodles while very good were just a little too oily/greasy for me to give a 5 star.
Overall no regrets and I likely will go back!
My girlfriend and I celebrated New Year’s Eve here. Food was all amazingly cooked and brought out quickly. The menu is structured for sharing so it was great portion sizes and very affordable. Our waiter was knowledgeable and had a great personality. If you have a chance to stop in here, I would highly recommend it. I know we loved it and will certainly be back.
We had a reservation at 6:15pm on New Years Eve, 2021. The restaurant is small and was full - yet upon arrival at 6:10pm - we were immediately brought to our table that was reserved for us.
We ordered appetizers - which were delivered HOT and fast. The shrimp toast was delicious. The dumplings were amazing. Freshly made and cooked to perfection.
Everything we ordered was 100% made in house and was an absolute delight for the taste buds.
We largely had vegetarian offerings which were all absolutely delicious! Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, dumplings, fried rice and a great noodle dish (jiajiang, I believe)! All so so good! One person got the Kimchi soup and reported it was fantastic! Prices are a bit high and space is so small. Given the small spaces the clear plastic dividers helped make us comfortable with safety! Those are the only complaints but minor complaints given how great the food is! Just helpful to be aware!
M Pocha never disappoints with its delicious dishes and fun vibe. My husband and I sat at the counter and loved looking out at the street, but still being able to have an intimate conversation. Service was friendly, attentive, but no overbearing. Food is top-notch!
Great food and service. Recommend the fire noodles and Pinot noir.
Delicious food & great service! Can't wait to come back!
I love all M restaurants - especially M Pocha!!!
Creative Korean street food & great for Durham people watching. Sit at the counter by the windows.
The vegan fried rice, vegan dumplings and kimchi was absolutely amazing! My fiancé and I had to get another serving of rice, it was amazing for date night. Great music and vibes. Very helpful staff for newcomers like us. Also a great pairing for cocktail was the sunset rose! I cannot wait to come back soon.
Food was delicious, server was very helpful with recommendations for food. They were able to make several dishes with no meat or egg at our request. The music was a little bit loud, otherwise, would have been five starts across the board.
Very much enjoyed our first experience there. Great variety of tapa choices. Ramen was excellent!!
fabulous experience. food was an A+ (we have a high bar too)! great job guys and we will be back!
Service and food always consistent! Excellent!
Everything was amazing! Our waiter was very attentive also
It was great! Food was amazing and very good. My friends and I had a great time.
Fun playlist. Great food. My new Durham favorite.
My husband and I very much enjoy the M family of restaurants, so we were very eager to eat at M Pocha. If you are a fan of Asian food, small plates, and unique fusions this is a great option. I highly recommend the Shrimp Toast!
Excellent food and excellent service! We will be back:)
Mandu, pork buns were great
Xiao Mian was the best, highly recommend it
This was my second time at M Pocha and the food was fantastic as usual! I also want to especially call out the wonderful service by the staff here - they’re extremely hospitable and helpful!
The food was delicious, especially recommend the fried rice!
Absolutely delicious! be sure to try the gai lan and the pork buns. Really, everything is divine.
Food was absolutely delicious and service was very hospitable
Food was awesome, as was the service
Wonderful culinary adventure at M Pocha !
Excellent food in a lively atmosphere; small plates are not too small, flavors were memorable.
The food and service at MPocha were both excellent. We went with another couple for the first time and had a great experience. The place is small but has a lot of energy and is an excellent place to have a meal with friends. We will definitely be going there again.
Great interpretation of Korean food. Sat at bar and service was a bit slow (but understandable since restaurant had only recently opened fully).
Papaya salad (served w/pork rinds!)
Pork steam buns
Seafood noodle soup
Got sat down at 9:15 for our 9:00 reservation. I understand that it is nobodies fault but when I’ve been sat down late at other restaurants, they have given us a free appetizer or round of drinks to apologize. I have appreciated that in the past so it would have been nice.
Love this place every single time. Guy, our server, is always outstanding. New menu items on occasion are always an enjoyment. This time it was chicken and caviar. Made up some for the disappointment of no longer having my favorite item on the menu, the shrimp burger. Can't wait til the next time to try the meat that again!
So glad to have tried M Pocha. Nice cozy place with great street view. Attentive and fast service. Very good recommendations from our server. Interesting cocktail choices. We tried the shrimp rolls (excellent) meat dumplings (delicious but messy to try and eat), pork buns (outstanding - arepa like) and the nasa goren, which was a really good sized portion (tasty).
The food and drinks were delicious and the service was outstanding.
Early dinner out with the teens after a long day of shopping.
Felt so taken care of by all the staff. And the table by the fireplace was absolutely lovely!
I took a group of 3 friends from out of town here, and they were very impressed. It definitely gives New York vibes- an intimate space with a vibrant ambience. The food was delicious! Ordered the Gai Lan twice for the table. Would highly recommend!
