    If you like Asian dumplings in a neat, RDT setting, this spot needs to be on your rotation. Never would have imagined Kimchi Tots but they were outstanding. Icing was a 4 glass-very different from dry to sweet-saki flight. Very enjoyable date night.

    First time visit but I see it becoming monthly if not more with take out. Food was excellent. Loved the vibe. Portions were good. Shared the pork and chive dumplings, the bulgogi dumplings, the Brussels sprouts, and the twice baked pork belly. Id order any of them again. With a glass of wine and a cocktail, bill with taxes was $78 which I thought was an honest price for amount of food. Server was super friendly and helpful. Only hiccup is after food was served, we waited quite a long time for water glasses to be refilled and then for server to return to be able to request a check. But nice that no one was rushing us out, which seems to be the norm anymore at most restaurants. Truly, this place is a gem!

    Delicious selection of Pan-Asian food with a few modern twists (tater tots paired with eel sauce and kimchi). Friendly wait staff, casual + modern ambience, reasonable prices. Would recommend 10/10; would return 100%.

    MOFU Shoppe is consistently excellent. The pork and chive dumplings are flavorful, with a little bit of sear/caramelization on the outside. The wings are my FAVORITE around - tried the Lime Glaze this time, and they were incredibly crunchy, just a little sweet, and bright citrus. For main, I went with the flounder tacos, which were crispy, fresh, and sizeable! Pacing was excellent, with food tasting like it just finished cooking. Service was welcoming without being overbearing. Two thumbs up for the sake flight, which moved from clean and crisp to sweet and fruity (excellent explanation from our server on how best to move through it). Can't say enough great things about this restaurant. A gem in Raleigh.

    MOFU Shoppe did not disappoint! The food was so delicious and the atmosphere was nice. We had the Brussels, bulgogi dumplings, kimchi tots, Thai basil noodles and the Asian Churro for dessert. Everything had so much flavor and our server Diamond was great. We highly recommend MOFU Shoppe and we would love to eat here again on another visit to Raleigh.

    The hostess insisted on putting us upstairs when no one was up there. Then we asked to at least move to table near the railing so we got a little of the ambiance. She said she couldn’t because of a large party. Meanwhile downstairs there were plenty of tables for two that were left unfilled during our meal. It spoiled our little date night and was totally ridiculous. No large party came and tables near railing and downstairs went empty while we were there. When we go out it’s for the food and vibe. Our waitress was very nice but it was ridiculous for her to go up and downstairs just to serve us.

    Our experience at MOFU was disappointing. It was uncomfortably cold in the restaurant, our service was not great, and the food was average. We waited a long time for our drinks and watched them sit on the bar and not be brought over to us. The waitress apologized that the bar was backed up but even a beer we ordered sat at the bar without being brought over. The Brussel sprouts and Kimchi tots were very good and were the highlights for me. I think MOFU has so much potential, but needs some improvements! Thanks!

    We went to MOFU with another couple for my husband’s birthday. We’ve been a few times before and LOVE the food and we weren’t disappointed. We ordered a bunch of small plates to share, and our favorites were the Brussels sprouts and lime glaze chicken wings. Service was excellent and they accommodated my husband’s onion allergy with no problems. They only had one bar tender working so the drinks were slower than usual (but delicious!), and although we didn’t even mention the wait the server comped our desserts as an apology. They also brought an extra (free) coffee mousse for my husband for his birthday. We love the food at MOFU and they always take care of their guests. We will definitely be back!

    My husband and I celebrated our 38th Wedding Anniversay here at MOFU Shoppe. It was wonderful. The food was delicious including the dumpling appetizers. My Shrimp Fried Rice was superb! My husband had the Flounder with curry Shrimp and he loved it! Our waitress was so nice and attentive and gave us two complimentary glasses of champagne for the occasion. We will definitely go back to MOFU!

    Most of food really great. Very slow delivery of food. Wine list does not reflect what they have in stock. Really really nice and responsive server. And whole staff friendly. Looks like they need more kitchen staff and better back office. Once they fix that, we would highly recommend due to gracious service and good food.
