    Good food and ambiance. The waitress was nice but food came out sporadically with one dish taking a really long time. Really liked tofu bao buns and impossible n chive dumplings. Also had wings which were tasty. Nice place to check out if you’re in the area!

    Returned to Mofu Shoppe for the second time as a visitor to Raleigh. Everything was delicious! Ordered the mac and cheese (super creative concept), wings, salad, pork belly & bulgogi dumplings. Friendly and attentive service. Dessert (coffee mousse and churros) were also a great way to end the meal

    Love their dumplings! Some great dishes to choose from. Feel free to do tapas and share. That’s what their menu is made for. The food is filling but not “I need a wheelchair” type full. Order as much as you want with the bros or keep it cute and have your girl dinner. Nice date spot or with friends. Cocktails are delicious. I loved the Lychee Martini. Spicy Beef Bulgoi dumplings are to die for and the pork belly. The Brussel sprouts were delicious but the tofu was unnecessary. They were quite busy, so it took a moment to be seated and also greeted. Server caught up and gave great suggestions. I didn’t expect too much attention, and it was actually quite nice as we were on a date. I would totally come back here. We had cocktails and good bit of food for under $100. Not bad these days.

    We were seated upstairs and had a nice male server. I cannot remember his name. We had cocktails and they were all very nice. We ordered a bottle of red wine and it was reasonably priced and delicious. The Brussel sprouts are out of this world. The dumplings were good too. The food was quick but I did not feel rushed. The only thing I was not wild about was the Churros at the end. We all thought they tasted fishy and were wondering if they fry them in a frier with other foods and it took on that taste. But overall it was excellent and we will be going back again.

    A group of 6 of us dined here and, although the food was great, the service was not. From the moment we walked in, the person at the front was not really friendly. We went to the bar since we were waiting and the bartender didn’t acknowledge us for about 5 min even though the bar was not busy at all. But, the real problem was dinner. The waiter was so nice but maybe had too many tables? Once he took our first round of drinks and brought the food, he didn’t really come back over. One in our party was trying to order a drink for like 30 min and no one was coming over. When our party did get to order drinks, we got ours…and then we got the exact same drinks brought to our table 10 min later. It seemed the drink order entered twice. Trying to close out also took a long time and the manager stepped in to help process payment, which was nice. The food is great and the space is awesome so hopefully it was just an off night.

    I absolutely love MOFU and have been going here for years. While last night’s dinner was good, it was not great this time. First of all, we were seated upstairs. Which is Ok, except the decor/design needs work. It looks like an afterthought. The windows were disgustingly dirty. Waitress was good but all drinks came late (not her fault) and they comped an app which was nice. Always come for the dumplings and wings, stay for the drinks. All that was yum. However we also ordered the shaved beef. For the price at such a nice place would have expected a larger portion of beef. The dish was mainly bell peppers. Honestly love MOFU and struggled with the choice to say anything. I just don’t want to see the quality continue to dip. Big takeaway - be clear you don’t want to sit upstairs until they work on it.

    MOFU Shoppe is a unique fusion of Asian cuisines and is worth the visit! The staff were all warm and kind, even the shortest interactions were pleasant. Our server Soso was great; drinks stayed full and our food arrived pretty quick. The bulgogi dumplings are a must try and their smoked pork bowl was fantastic! There were a few things that didn’t come out as hot as I would’ve liked, but none of the dishes suffered for it. Their oven was also down, so there were a few items that we were really looking forward to that we didn’t get to try. The desserts were also pretty small given the price, but they were full flavored and very tasty. All and all, I would definitely visit again!

    The food is always exceptional! Really enjoyed the carrot cheesecake, the pop of ginger in the sauce was a nice touch. Cocktails were good, the wings and dumplings never disappoint. Shoutout to our server—his section filled up all at once and he didn’t even break a sweat. We felt well taken care of, and looking at his other tables, they were also enjoying themselves. Food runners and bussers also really nice to interact with. Made for a nice, warm ambience. Nice work!

    I have generally had great experiences at MOFU but this last visit was a little off. In one of the dishes, the chicken was clearly being fried with fish, leaving the whole dish tasting like fish. Also on three separate occasions during the meal we were told after ordering that they were unable to make the dish. I’m hoping this is a one off experience but that has yet to be determined.

    Overall, disappointing. The dumping was thick with the dumpling carrier, rather than filling; the kimchi tots were uninspired, just tired tots with spicy sauce. The brussels sprouts were good, not great. They came with "puffed tofu", which was chewy. The best app was the twice cooked pork belly. That was really good. I got the ginjam cocktail with blood orange juice and it was awful. Way too sweet and somewhat bitter. This dinner was a xmas gift from a dear friend, and she was disappointed also.

    Seated promptly upon our arrival. Service was very slow. Waited for our drinks too long. We ordered our dumplings and our main courses at one time. We waited much too long for both. Seriously had to look for our server to ask for another cocktail and to ask where our food was. It was not overly busy at this time. Pork Belly underdone as was the poached egg....

    Food and atmosphere were always amazing. Our server was nice but could’ve been a little more attentive. We did not have spoon for our soup. It took a long time for him to come back to us after the soup was dropped off. We finished it by the time he got back to us and we waited a long time for our water to get refilled.
