We've been a few times and it's always delicious. The pork burrito is amazing. You have to know what to expect when you come here. It is a bit like chipotle in the sense that this isn't a full service restaurant, they have a limited menu, make it to order fast food style, and serve burritos, but here the ingredients are fresh and creative and the food is fantastic. it's a hit. The original Momofuku is great too but it's a totally different kind of place, you can't compare them.

We were keen to try this new spot after it's parent Momofuku is so good. We went with a sample off the short (will grow I am sure) menu, pork buns, chicken burrito and mushroom burrito - the pork buns were shredded pork not sliced (bummer) and overly salty. The burrito's were made by the staff to the design on the menu however they contained many non Asian things, black beans, coleslaw etc. The burrito's were OK but at $8 far too expensive. I gave some gentle feedback to the manager and I wish them well but we won't be back. Expensive and disappointing.

This place kind of reminded me of a Chipotle, though with a very limited selection on the menu. We tried all 3 dishes offered on the menu - floured pancake, rice bowl and steamed buns, all with the tasty Berkshire pork. The food is assembled in front of you when you order in a way that is similar to how they handle orders at Subway. Overall the food is good and reasonably priced, except the steamed buns.
