I've been to Momofuku once, and it was an awesome experience--I can still taste the noodles! The atmosphere is casual (bar setting), not loud, pleasant... I found it relaxing. The food is divine! The broth is thick and incredibly tasty--it still makes my mouth water! The noodles were just as delicious, the bowls were HUGE (you get a lot of food for your money), the presentation is great, and they had a decent selection of beer and sake. The service was quick and our waitress we had was extremely friendly. It's a nice, casual place for a meeting with friends, co-workers or a date, were you can actually hear yourself talk, eat great and not spend a fortune. For what this restaurant is supposed to be, I give it a 10.

I find the soup base too salty and had a funny after taste and the noodles had strong flour tase. I went there b/c it had good review from Daily news but I was very disappointed- I was so sorry I dragged my 4 friends to this place. they actually wanted to eat Italian and I said- no try this place. i felt so bad that I ended up picking up the bill. the place had poor uncomfortable sitting and the ramen really sucked.

Great carbo load, and the flavoring is superb

Affordable, delicious food with a fun young crowd. Best of all, Saki bombs! Nothing wrong with that. A great place to start out the night or for a quick bite. I highly recommend Momofuku. Just don't anger the cook, he's huge!
