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.

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Dallas. It never disappoints. The food is remarkable and delicious. But equally stellar is the service. Gracious, friendly and attentive.

The food is always good - always exceeding my imagination! Staff are prompt, helpful and very friendly. Imperial Rolls are a great way to start a meal; the foie gras dumplings w/ kimchi is fabulous - as well as the pork short rib!

Excellent and well-thought out wine list - great by the glass selection of French and Italian.

Every shared plate we ordered was delicious and beautifully prepared. Hats off for the amazing foie gras dumplings with pears and topped with waygu ribeye!
The shrimp and pork imperial rolls starter and the shaking beef with garlic noodles entree are our go to dishes.....think manna from heaven....

Wine list and curated cocktails are top shelf. The waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable of the menu and its ingredients and flavor profiles. Everyone works together like a fine Swiss watch.

Asian fusion in a very modern way. You can definitely recognize Asian flavors but still the food will be served in a very unexpected way.
It is definitely an experience for foodies and it seems like a good place for a date.
Btw my 4 year old daughter loved the garlic noodles. She ate the bowl in 5 min.

Hands down our favorite date night in Dallas. Do not skip the tiramisu and you should order whatever new dish they have on rotation, it will be delicious. Salem is our favorite waitress-- she is fantastic!

I have always enjoyed my experiences at Mot Hai Ba, and this last visit was no different. The food was exceptional. The dumpling special was one of the best dishes I've eaten in Dallas in a long time. I'm glad this isn't on the menu permanently, I'd go broke eating it every day. Our server and sommelier were both very knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations throughout the evening. If you're reading this and trying to decide if you should eat at Mot Hai Ba, GO!

This was for my anniversary. Food was outstanding and priced well for the quality. Had the bao buns and fried avacado salad to start and the were both very good. Especially the dressing on the salad. Dinner was the curry chicken which was also very good. I make it a point to not get chicken at nice restaurants but my wife was done with red meat. And when a chicken dish is done well at a nice restaurant it’s usually amazing and this was. Highly recommend. The garlic noodles were exactly what you would thing and they were very good. My wine was good and my wife’s cocktail was very good and unique. I gave one star off on service because our server broke my biggest rule and didn’t tell us what they were out of until we ordered and of course it’s what we wanted. I never excuse that. Also she forgot our garlic noodles and brought them after we were done with the dinner. Have one star off for ambience because I think of every place as if I owned it. We sat outside and there was a dead plant in the corner and a broken cinder block next to our table. Things easy to correct but overlooked. Just saying. If I owned a restaurant I would want to know what I was missing. Overall great dining experience. Server was super nice and knew the menu. Would definitely go back
