Everything was great, the only issue we had was that it was hard to find because it doesn't have a signage on the outside, we went around in circles at The Star trying to find this restaurant.

Could not fault my experience at Momofuku. Lovely staff, popping soundtrack, delicious food. Pre-theatre menu was delicious and great value. Happily accommodated our request to finish 4th course after the show.

I think dining at this restaurant should be extended rather than rushing through a pre-theatre menu.
Wines to the upper end of price ranges. Staff very good.

The staff were just lovely, the food tasted great but mostly we just felt so welcome and comfortable. Loved the birthday card for my friend. Thank you!

A wonderful evening to spend with your partner. Love the modern design of the restaurant with the main focus on the open kitchen. Seeing how smoothly kitchen operates and the techniques used to create the food is like watching a well produced show. Food is fantastic. Each dish is delicious and the menu as a whole leaves you feeling satisfied. The staff are friendly and drinks are always topped up.
My partner and I look forward to dining at Momofuku Seiobo when we visit Sydney again.
Thank you.

A slick operation to serve such creative food for the pre-theatre crowd. Watching the staff in the kitchen prepping each dish from the bar dining area very entertaining. Want to go back for the full menu.

We be been pushed through out the whole night. Poor service skills presented by staffs, awful music and the food just add another hint of disappointment to the night. If this is how a 3hat restaurant should be, then it shall be 10 more restaurant received their third hat

Overly loud rap music. Hence we had to really concentrate on our conversation and didn’t catch all explanations of each dish by the waiters. First two courses and desert were good. Desert was amazing. Main course underwhelming

Without doubt there is a great deal of hype about this restaurant. However one needs to take into account that the food is of a Creole /Caribbean style and frankly it's not particularly sophisticated or brilliant cuisine for the price and location of this relatively expensive restaurant.
The style of cuisine and quality of food would be more suited to a more relaxed suburban style café at less than half the price. Admittedly flavours are unique to this cuisine but not something that I personally find appealing. The food occasionally has quite strong spice elements which drown the high-quality produce particularly the wonderful fresh crayfish which were part of the 10 course menu. I would not be rushing back to experience this restaurant again.

Seiōbo was an incredible and memorable dining experience! From start to finish the staff was welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. One of our diners is allergic to onion and garlic and they went above and beyond to provide a beautiful meal almost identical to the normal menu for her needs. They also helped to accommodate her need for disabled access at a table. It was a vibrant 4-course pre theatre dinner that none of us will forget!

The food is till your eyes back and lose yourself good. Being able to see the kitchen and be served by chefs with understanding of the food makes it a real experience.
Disappointed I didn’t have time for the tasting menu pre show. I will 100% be back. Love love love

You can sense Momofuku's strength in its entre enticing you with a sense of anticipation of the mains which turned out to be disappointing. Made up somewhat with its well executed dessert. Great waiting staff.

Fabulous food and the pre theatre menu was perfect. Wine list was very expensive - need more options there. Kitchen & staff all had a lovely happy vibe. Delicious!

I do enjoy creative cuisine but I guess this one is not for me. I had the four course pre-theater menu with wine pairing...The dessert was good but the rest was meh.

The pre-theatre 4-course menu was outstanding. We had high expectations due to the Momofuku brand, but the Caribbean style of food was amazing. We loved every course. Highly recommended.

It seemed a little understaffed, as I had trouble getting attention to order a second drink, my first drink appeared to have been forgotten about but I was compensated for that...
However it also felt very impersonal.
The food was lovely though.
