    We tried all the dumplings on the menu and we were very impressed they were very delicious. Lychee Margarita was great. Whiskey sour was another favorite. The winning dish of the night were the short ribs they were so tender. Will definitely be coming back.

    From beginning to end, the experience was exceptional. My fiancé and I made had a reservation and were seated promptly upon arriving. We were then greeted by Parker, our server for the evening, who was very friendly and accommodating. His service was awesome and the food was incredible. Truly, one of the best meals I’ve had in Raleigh. As an appetizer, we had the brussel sprouts, which were delicious! As the entree, I had the smoked pork belly bowl and my fiancé had the chicken and ginger wontons. Both, cooked beautifully. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and will definitely be coming back!

    We were supposed to have two tables of 7. People bailed and we ended up with a total of 10 diners. Folks at Mofu were beyond gracious. Accommodated is at one table. Our server, Diamond, was amazing. She handled all 10 (simultaneous) food/drinks orders in her head. Everything came out correct, together, and hot. Food was great. Seriously - order the Brussel sprouts. Great staff. Great food. Great vibe.

    Glad I was able to experience this restaurant. Perfect place for a date night. Options are good for vegetarians and vegans. I had some impossible dishes. The dumplings were chef kiss, however the stir fry with the noodles were rather salty. The service was awesome. Will come again.

    The service, the food, the atmosphere… TEN OUT OF TEN! We started with the beef bulgogi dumplings which were AMAZING! Our one order of this turned into THREE! The entrées came shortly after. Presentation of the dishes were a 10/10! I ordered the sticky short ribs and they were SUPER tender and complimented the mash potatoes well. We followed our dinner up with asian churros at the recommendation of our server. This has been the beat food and service by far this 2023 year! You leave hard shoes to fill, MOFU!

    The food was fantastic! A reservation may not be necessary if you get there when the restaurant opens at noon on a Saturday, but I made one just to be on the safe side. When we arrived, the bartender looked at us as we stood at the door for longer than 10 minutes. Didn’t say hello or anything so I was expecting a bad experience. The wait staff and food were excellent. I’ll definitely be returning. The dumplings were great but the appetizers could definitely make for a great meal!

    Delicious food! We came on a Friday afternoon for lunch and the food was fantastic. The only downside was that there was only one server, who was also the bartender. It was quite busy and she was definitely overwhelmed.

    Wonderful lunch, will head back for dinner with a larger group, and consider take out. We shared dumplings, tacos and brussel sprouts, all were delicious and surprisingly flavorful. Another wonderful find in downtown Raleigh that makes you think you have been transported to somewhere else.

    MoFu is a fantastic restaurant. We’ve eaten there three times now. Every meal was incredible. The staff is super efficient and friendly. Loved our servers. Highly recommend this restaurant. Best dishes in my opinion are the beef pho, Thai basil noodles, the impossible dumplings and the charred asparagus. The lychee margarita is Wonderful.

    We started our family annual Christmas pub crawl here early December 23 - 5 pm. It was a perfect choice for our party of six. We had members of our group with various dietary preferences, vegetarians, flexitarians and omnivores. There was something for everyone! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was calm but fun. It was my fourth trip to Mofu, and we will all keep coming back.

    I've loved MOFU Shoppe since it opened in this location downtown. I also frequented it during COVID when they sold dumplings for take away. The food is consistently good, and I love the wine list. It's a great intimate place to come with friends, and typically easy to book.

    Oh WOW!!! The dumplings are insanely delicious! We had the pork and the beef and can’t wait to go back for more. I had the fried rice and hubby had the fish tacos and both were excellent. He had the Gin Jam cocktail and we both loved it. I had a really nice glass of Rose. Service was perfect throughout. You have to try these dumplings!!

    Food was very good for price point and deserving of 4 stars. However, major downfall was service. Our poor waitress was running food, and trying to wait on the entire first floor as well as a large group. She was very nice and apologetic when we did speak to her, but was few and far between because she was so busy. Staff was insufficient or not allocated correctly. It took 30+ minutes to get a cocktail and about 1hr+ from when we sat down to when we actually got our small/shareable plates. Again, it was not from a lack of effort, but rather just not enough resources to be timely and provide good service. The speed of ordering and receiving food/drinks really put a damper on what could have been a very good meal.

    We’re seated quickly. Server was very pleasant and responsive. Water glasses were refilled as needed. We’re given plenty of time to order (not rushed). Weren’t crowded in our seating or situated uncomfortably closely to other patrons. Cheque was brought to us immediately upon request. Basically, everything went smoothly.

    I went with a friend and we shared two veggie dishes and got our own dumpling dishes. It was filling. The interior space is a two story open renovation with a small mezzanine towards the right wall as you enter. There is also a bar, along with regular dining seating. Our waiter was nice, and food was tasty.

    Amazing food and drinks. A new twist to Asian food. We came here for a business dinner and had a great time. The service was a bit slower possibly due to staff shortages but we eventually got our drinks and food for the table and enjoyed everything. We ordered a bit of everything from the 1 page menu no million choices unlike other Asian restaurants. Definitely recommend for individual or business get togethers.

    If you like Asian dumplings in a neat, RDT setting, this spot needs to be on your rotation. Never would have imagined Kimchi Tots but they were outstanding. Icing was a 4 glass-very different from dry to sweet-saki flight. Very enjoyable date night.

    First time visit but I see it becoming monthly if not more with take out. Food was excellent. Loved the vibe. Portions were good. Shared the pork and chive dumplings, the bulgogi dumplings, the Brussels sprouts, and the twice baked pork belly. Id order any of them again. With a glass of wine and a cocktail, bill with taxes was $78 which I thought was an honest price for amount of food. Server was super friendly and helpful. Only hiccup is after food was served, we waited quite a long time for water glasses to be refilled and then for server to return to be able to request a check. But nice that no one was rushing us out, which seems to be the norm anymore at most restaurants. Truly, this place is a gem!
