The staff was really great! The food was... different. The noodle was good, but the pork wasn't, was very greasy. The dessert was different too (withe chocolate with pop corn - good) We didn't like the tea...

Served like dim sum. The quality of the food is excellent Ask for sake it is served in a frosted glass and was great. this is a unique reastaurant with a young casual vibe.

The food was okay, not out of this world in relation to price. HAd their fried chicken regular and KFC tasted much better. They had a dimsun style way of carts going around and u choose and pick... variety was slim pickings compared to a regular dimsun in Chinatown. Had their pork buns, a signature offering of David Chang, it was okay. The restaurant itself was dark and minmal in decorations, almost like going down to a dungeon. Enjoyed the ice cream. Would not go back to subject myself to it a second time.

Had lunch at Momofuku's. The ambiance is very minimal and open. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Various carts of different "tapa" style foods come by the table. You pick and choose. Everything was fresh and delicious. Also tried the habanero fried chicken from the regular menu. It was great. Would definitely come back. Thanks

My friends and I went to Ma Peche last night to celebrate a couple of birthdays. There were six in our party. One friend was excited to try this restaurant and so we made reservations well in advance of our trip. Needless to say we were quite disappointed. I won't say it was bad because we had fun but it was because we were an easy going bunch. It took 20 minutes to get all of our cocktails on the table after waiting 20 minutes to order them. By the time the last person got her drink the first was ready for the second. We had to flag down the waitress each time. For the price you pay per person and all the hoop la around David Chang, I expected more. She wasn't at all friendly and made it seem as though she were doing us a favor. The men pushing the carts were great and friendly. Food was good, but nothing I'd go back for. And given the poor service, this one will definitely not be a repeat restaurant for me or anyone else in our group.
