It’s definitely creative! Fois gras and tuna combination, pork bans, etc were a fantasy variation of some traditional food. I would say it’s a great place to come for a fun dinning to perk your buds and try something new and different. Not a dinning destination to come over again

Underwhelming experience. Server recommended the duck and garlic noodles... duck was chewy and the noodles were clumpy. Best part of the meal was the coffees we had and the old fashioned I had. Pretty hard to mess those up...

We were so excited to try David Chang’s Momofuku. The food was awful. A “medium rare” rib eye was burnt (actually burnt, not charred) and rubbery. Not even slightly bloody: The uni hash brown tasted like a McDonald’s hashbrown thrown in the ocean and cooked in a vat of grease, so it overpowered any of the United. The pumpkin ribs were severely salty and the pork buns, although a significant amount of meat in them, lacked flavor. To top it all off, I got an itchy allergic reaction to something on my arm a couple hours later. Would not recommend. However, the service is wonderful and everyone is happy and friendly! Maybe a spot for drinks.

Don’t believe any of the hype surrounding this “restaurant.”The food was either overworked, salty, drowned in sauce, burnt or bland. There must have been no chef present because the food coming out of that kitchen was a complete embarrassment. Service quality was unacceptable and laughable.

We were excited to try out David Chang's cooking, since we had seen him on the food shows. We also wanted to try Milk's crack pie. We were pleasantly surprised to be able to make our reservation at the time we wanted it on a Saturday night; helped that we were just a small party of four. The pork belly buns were delicious and we would go back just to have a full meal of those again. The chili noodles were too spicy and actually difficult to eat - tasty, though. Our bigger disappointment was the short ribs - for the hype and the price we expected them to be melt in your mouth soft and they were kind of chewy. Impressive presentation and good taste, but tough. The crack pie was a big hit with the younger half of the table. Service was attentive and prompt.

We love momofuku! We have been to every location and it is our favorite! Service and food are always flawless and this was no different! The only thing that I can say is that I’m very sad they switched out the chilled spicy noodles with sausage and candied cashews for the newer version. They are ok don’t get me wrong but not half as good as the previous version. The flavors in the old noodles were amazing and everything! We were super disappointed to see it change it is our favorite thing at Momofuku we even try to recreate it at home! We also love the bing bread as well and wish it was a this location! But it was still amazing! Just missing those giant candied cashews

Went as a group of three gals. Ordered the salt & pepper lobster and shrimp under “family style”. Waiter did not give much details about how it would be served. When it arrived it was a large bowl of fried salt and pepper lobster tails and jumbo shrimps with fried green onion, fried jalapeños and shishito peppers. That’s all you get for a whopping $238USD. The duck would have been the better option or ordering several smaller plates. We were disappointed with the Salt & pepper lobster and shrimp as there was nothing else to eat with it. It will serve 4 people comfortably or three adult males. The pork belly buns were delicious and worth every bite! The service was not great as it is a busy restaurant and reservations are highly recommended! I would go there again, but knowing now what to expect, I will not order Salt and Pepper lobster and shrimp unless I’m part of a larger group and other things are ordered. Expect a large bill at the end of the night.

David Chang is a food genius. Some of the best Asian cuisine I’ve had. Highly recommend the ginger soy noodles. I could probably eat the whole bowl myself. Can’t wait to go back the next time I’m in Vegas.

We were excited to try this venue. The pork belly buns and oysters were simple yet good as well as the truffle burrata salad. The tuna tartare is a great concept however sprinkled with way too much foie gras and you could not taste the tuna (flavors didn’t go very well and ended up being too salty). For main course, we ordered the $98 ribeye ... extremely disappointing! They marinated the meat and ruined the flavor and paired it with a roasted cabbage that was extremely bland! If you want noodles and pork buns then I guess you can go here. If you’re wanting a “wow” food experience, you’ll leave speechless with a lighter wallet...and your wow experience will be in writing a low starred review. So sad Momofuku!

Food - what the hell? Unique, extraordinary, next level stuff

The only (remote) con I can conjure up is the noise level is a bit high but the food is so good it’s sort of like you enter your own world anyway

What a great spot. David Chang doesn’t disappoint with his complex flavors and exciting and unexpected combinations. The kale salad with baratta cheese was awesome, and the rice cakes (think rice based gnocchi) were slightly crispy and totally amazing. Definitely going back again. We had mostly veggie dishes and it was great! There are you lefty of meat based dishes that looked amazing.

We truly loved everything about our experience! Between the service, the drinks, and the food- this has been on my bucket list for years and it did not disappoint. Try the penicillin drink - it will surprise you in the best way possible. We also got the pork buns (I think I told the server that I wanted to sleep inside one of those pork buns, they were unreal), the spicy cold noodles, the endive salad, and the Benton ham and biscuits (my favorite dish of all!). Because it was my birthday, they also brought over a funfetti cookie that was SO soft and delicious.
