ALWAYS delicious and wait staff wonderful. Fun to go with a group so you can order a variety of items and serve family style.
Every server is knowledgeable about the dishes and how to present the highlights of the chefs work
Every dish came out hot, with warm plates
They are not afraid of answering question, making recommendations or providing guidance on menu or wine
Delicious food, inventive cocktails, romantic ambiance, lively energy but not noisy, an incredible experience.
Always an amazing meal!
30th birthday celebration.! Great food and friends.
I love this place. Please don’t anyone else go so that I can still get a table.
Our go to place for great food and service!!!
All our dishes had a great savory depth...more nuanced flavors than I had anticipated and all outstanding!
Delicious food and perfect experience! I absolutely was floored by the service and meal. As everyone on yelp suggests, get the garlic noodles.
Fabulous start the finish. The food is incredible and we were never rushed. A go to Dallas favorite!
It is always a treat to dine at Mot Hai Ba. The menu is creative and always delicious. This place is the total package.
Great food and service and would recommend to a friend. Serving size was a bit smaller than servers led us to believe.
Given that the weather is better now, I would've preferred the patio be without the plastic roof covering for COVID safety reasons. I did not expect that when I booked a patio table. Otherwise a fantastic experience.
One of my favorite restaurants in Dallas! Unique and delicious.
Love this place
The shaking beef may have been the best dish I’ve ever had
Excellent food and service! The waiter was outstanding. Cannot wait to go back!
Food did not live up to all the hype. Food was a little above average.
Food was so good!
Food and drinks were wonderful!!!
We had planned a visit here before covid. Finally made it last night. It was worth the wait. Here is the short version of our experience. All the positive hype about this restaurant is true.
Mot Hai Ba is not an elevated "traditional" Vietnamese restaurant. That's kinda what I was expecting anyway. Very few menu items even suggest Vietnamese roots. That said, if you want some of the best food you will ever experience anywhere this is the place for you.
1- Every appetizer, entree and beverage we ordered was incredible. As Trudy (our principle waitress and dining guide) recommended, all four of us ordered different entrees and appetizers to share. Great suggestion. The food was all superb.
2- The staff here is probably the most friendly, helpful and appreciative group we have experienced anywhere. Many participated in the dining experience and we felt welcome and were well cared for. Trudy is a polished diamond. She is very professional and accomplished at her craft. She was fantastic. As good as it gets. We enjoyed her service immensely.
3- my only nit is the portions were a bit small for the prices but you find this kind of thing at some of the very best restaurants. Quality not quantity.
4- most importantly will we return. Oh my gosh. Yes
This is the most amazing food ever!! The staff is outstanding!!!!
The food here is wonderful - allow the servers to guide you. We would never have ordered the turnip dumplings and they were spectacular. Cocktails were inventive and a wonderful selection of beers. Highly recommended!
The food is always amazing. I felt like the tables were really close together but it’s a very small place. Service is always great.
Loved loved loved! We will be back.
Wonderful food, service and ambiance
One of my top 3 in Dallas. Absolutely terrific food and vibe.
Been wanting to go here forever, have always heard how good it is. Everyone was right, Mot Hai Ba is fantastic!
Great service, nice drinks and the food was amazing! Will definitely be back!
Such a cozy spot with indoor and outdoor seating. Everything tasted amazing and super fresh. Staff was very friendly and inviting. Would definitely recommend for a date night or small group dinner, sharing is encouraged!
One of the best and most unique places I have been. Awesome food and cool atmosphere. I’ve been there three Ives in a month.
We love dinner at Mot Hai Ba! The food is always delicious. The people working there are always pleasant and add to the total experience.
Amazing as always!
Always on point! Great experience as always - look forward to the next time!
This has to be the best restaurant in Dallas! The food and menu are different and I mean that in the very best way. Our waitress was Awesome! The food coming out of the kitchen smelled amazing and tastes even better! We are excited we found our new favorite restaurant in DFW!
Wonderful food and service. The patio was socially distanced and had heaters.
Great date night spot - indoor seating has better ambiance but that outside is cute when the tent is open. Love, love, love the food and wonderful service.
Continues to deliver excellent service and one of the best resteraunts in the area. Would love for some level of background music to be playing as the patio gets awkward if everyone becomes silent.
