            The food was awesome! My friend and I split the Brussels, a dumpling plate, and the Thai noodles. It was the perfect amount of food and it was delicious! Our waiter was so kind and on time of it! 10/10 would recommend!

            Its a flavor explosion! I like spices for flavor, and this place knows how to use them. Lots of flavor!. The Thai Basil Noodles were outstanding. Just the right blend of heat and flavor.

            We went for Mother’s Day and hit the.Farmers market afterwards. Great food had the popcorn mushrooms, D’impossible Dumplings, chicken and ginger wontons, glazed pork belly and Tom Tum “Mac and Cheese”. 3 people and we shared the dishes. Plenty of food and would go back for all. If you like innovative takes on Mac and cheese their Tom Yum version is unique and unforgettable. A great experience for us all, thank you MOFU!!!

            The Gin Jam cocktail was very flavorful, refreshing and light. Dumplings and Brussels sprouts really hit the mark with complex flavors. Satay was a miss. While the chicken meat was very good quality, it was totally devoid of flavor, as was the dipping sauce. Mac and cheese was very tasty, but quite heavy. Brittany was very attentive and pleasant. Overall, a really nice time.

            We had chicken wanton and pork dumpling. They were no better than the frozen versions you can buy from H Mart. We also had the mussels that were soaked in red pepper.. there was no indication that they were going to be so spicy.. Dan Dan noodles was inedible.. Fried rice was tasty.

            The food was not of the quality it was when we last ate here. Service, however, was excellent.

            It had been a few years since I’d been here, but the food and service quality have remained stellar as I remember! Our server was friendly, the atmosphere was great, cocktails were carefully crafted, and the meal was an all-around amazing experience. This is a must go-to dinner spot in Raleigh!
