Came to MOFU from google reviews. Dumplings were amazing, WINGS WERE SPECTACULAR (½ and ½). Fish tacos were our least favorite but we ate them after having the rich flavor of the dumplings and wings. For entrees we ordered lobster fried rice and pho. Would recommend and eat again (especially for the wings!).

Went in for (in this order) dumplings, a couple of beers, and to watch the Chelsea v Liverpool match over lunch. Sam and the rest of the staff were outstanding, the dumplings were perfect, and the beer selection was great.

Our entire experience was amazing! Atmosphere, food, and service. Our server made some awesome suggestions and we loved everything! He was tending to the bar and us and I was really impressed at his ability to give us great service! We had the impossible meat and bulgogi dumplings, pad Thai noodles, lobster friend rice and wings! All delicious and would recommend!

Made for a really lovely night out. Got an early-ish table for two, ordered a bunch of small plates based on our server’s recommendations, same for cocktails. The space is great, without feeling too much like a scene/forced. All in all, A+.

Mofu is absolutely amazing. It was hard to believe we were in Downtown Raleigh and not somewhere in Los Angeles or New York City! The atmosphere, design and layout was fun, modern, and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The food was insanely delicious and the menu featured several creative renditions (which were also easily shareable!) of Asian dishes that I have been wanting to try for sometime including beef pho, pork belly bowl, etc. Some must-try dishes would be the brussels sprouts, ginger wontons and Thai basil chicken. Definitely stop by Mofu when you get the chance!

This was our second trip to Mofu and glad to see them reopen after the pandemic. We enjoyed an early dinner. Cocktails were interesting but nothing to write home about. Dumplings were delicious as were the dessert churros. Less inspiring were the fish tacos which were good but lacked interest. These could’ve easily been punched up with more flavorful toppings instead of the everyday shredded iceberg and red cabbage. We also tried the Dan Dan noodles and although good, these were also uninspired and really needed some additional notes to round out the dish. All around, the food was good but we expected a little more in the flavor department. Service was excellent.

Fun dinner out with a friend. Friendly hostess and wait staff. Food came out hot and was delicious. Drinks were well made and offered unique flavors, but I do prefer beer. They had a decent selection of local beers as well as imports. Wine and Prosecco was also offered. Will go back!
