The idea is perfect. Lots of options for eating styles. I am vegan, my husband is not. Eating out is always a challenge to find a place we both enjoy.

We have been to Mudhen a few times. It’s OK. I always want it to be better. Flavor is either waaaaay too spicy (I am a 4 on a Thai heat scale, we like spicy) or it’s under salted.

The coffee is just horrible. I had almond milk, husband had cream. Neither of us like it.

Server was very nice but never brought the juice I asked for. Based on my meal I chose not to ask for more I’d be disappointed with. He was very slow on refills and they were not busy. Server even commented they are usually busier for brunch.

Atmosphere and location always makes me want to try again. 3x rule - we will not be returning

We apologize for your experiences. While brunch is our more popular menu, it is not our most inclusive. It is hard to find a vegan option that doesn't contain our sriracha vinaigrette which is VERY spicy. Our coffee is very bold & can come off bitter. For this reason, we also offer a lighter cold brew, a hot latte, and an iced mocha. Regardless, we are apologetic your server didn't guide you through the menu better, and for their un-attentive service. We would love to treat you to one last try!

Mudhen is always a highlight of visiting the Dallas Farmers Market. Fill up on Green Eggs and Ham Benedict and coffee, then shop for fresh produce at the stalls.

Service was horrific. Couldn’t find plower hour Friday night menu, out of water for over 30 minutes had to ask twice. Had to ask about a beer twice, took 20 minutes to get. And to top it off wasn’t even busy...unacceptable!!!!

We arrived at our appointed reservation time and were immediately seated. Server was prompt with bringing is water and took our drink order. The food was delicious., chicken/avocado salad. The carrot cake for dessert was the best we have ever had. server was friendly and welcoming. It was a nice relaxing lunch get together on a very hot day. The Farmer’s Market area is a must visit.

Food was - and always is - excellent. Love the security of knowing that I can order anything off the menu and none of it is GMO. Tasty, well prepared. Good options.

The server provided excellent service. I go to Mudhen often, and the greatest weakness of this restaurant is the servers themselves. Nine times out of 10, the servers are both lackadaisical and arrogant. On this occasion, I'm happy to report that the server was attentive, responsive, and helpful.

The food and atmosphere is great. We were told to wait several minutes when checking in “so that your server can be attentive” since he supposedly had too many tables. But the time we sat down and ordered our drinks many of his tables left and it still took over 20 mins to get out drinks. They actually came almost the exact same time as our lunch. The server must have been having a bad day because it was horribleeee. Didn’t bring hot sauce ever after being asked several times, forgot my side dish, didn’t check on us for more drinks even once.. just bad. However, that review is for the server. The restaurant itself- the food, atmosphere & quality were great per usual. Great seating for groups. Fair prices.

Saw an employee that did not wash hands in the bathroom. They were out of chicken sausage and the management was not helpful at all to try to get us a substitution. The manager looked annoyed the whole time and ended up up-charging us for our desired substitution.

We each ordered different bowls and they were fantastic. Love the healthy options and the variety. We also had the watermelon cooler drinks and enjoyed them. Service was slightly inattentive, our waiter seemed distracted and took a long time to bring drinks and take our order. But everything else was spot on!

Went with my husband for a casual date night and was pleasantly surprised I hadn't been down to the Farmers Market area for a while and it had built up a lot. The restaurant had a casual friendly vibe. Their happy hour went all night so I enjoyed a Larita which is a delicious Margarita - type cocktail. The menu had ample options for my vegan diet as well as my cornivore husband's so choosing was difficult. We settled on their (vegan) spring roll to start which was a delightful explosion of bright and spicy flavor and textures. I ordered the (vegan) mushroom pasta bolognese which was the kind of warm comfort food I was seeking, full of tomato and spice. It was lighter on the (kelp) noodles than I would have liked. My husband got his meat fix by ordering the Texas Star Bowl, which had flavorful strip steak, wilted spinach and fibgerling potatoes. He was super happy with his meal. He ate all of it. We couldn't deny ourselves the opportunity to try their Brown Betty - which is a (vegan) pear crumble. It's rare to eat a dessert that I feel is both healthy and delicious but this was it. My husband and I were really pleased with the casual feel and the outstanding menu options felt like a real value for a true farm-to-table meal. We will definitely be returning and bringing our friends with us.

Hello, my name is Madison from Mudhen and i am SO sorry to hear our specials were not verbally told to you on your visit! Our chef works incredibly hard to create the freshest + most unique specials possible! We hope you'll try us again, and we thank you for the review. We will be sure to talk with our servers about always scripting specials!
