Nestled in the historic City Market neighborhood of downtown Raleigh, MOFU Shoppe brings you the flavors of Asia with the comfort of southern hospitality. Our dishes are inspired by our identity as Taiwanese Americans who grew up in the South around a multitude of diverse food cultures. Born out of the Food Network award winning Pho Nomenal Dumpling Truck, we have come a long way and can't wait to see you in soon.

    Our experience at MOFU was disappointing. It was uncomfortably cold in the restaurant, our service was not great, and the food was average. We waited a long time for our drinks and watched them sit on the bar and not be brought over to us. The waitress apologized that the bar was backed up but even a beer we ordered sat at the bar without being brought over. The Brussel sprouts and Kimchi tots were very good and were the highlights for me. I think MOFU has so much potential, but needs some improvements! Thanks!

    We went to MOFU with another couple for my husband’s birthday. We’ve been a few times before and LOVE the food and we weren’t disappointed. We ordered a bunch of small plates to share, and our favorites were the Brussels sprouts and lime glaze chicken wings. Service was excellent and they accommodated my husband’s onion allergy with no problems. They only had one bar tender working so the drinks were slower than usual (but delicious!), and although we didn’t even mention the wait the server comped our desserts as an apology. They also brought an extra (free) coffee mousse for my husband for his birthday. We love the food at MOFU and they always take care of their guests. We will definitely be back!

    My husband and I celebrated our 38th Wedding Anniversay here at MOFU Shoppe. It was wonderful. The food was delicious including the dumpling appetizers. My Shrimp Fried Rice was superb! My husband had the Flounder with curry Shrimp and he loved it! Our waitress was so nice and attentive and gave us two complimentary glasses of champagne for the occasion. We will definitely go back to MOFU!

    Most of food really great. Very slow delivery of food. Wine list does not reflect what they have in stock. Really really nice and responsive server. And whole staff friendly. Looks like they need more kitchen staff and better back office. Once they fix that, we would highly recommend due to gracious service and good food.

    MOFU Shoppe serves small plates to share as well as larger dishes. My wife and I tried several small plates, and the beef dumplings which were probably the star of the night. Also the Taiwanese bolognese was outstanding with pork belly and a little spice. Excellent value too for the quality of the dishes.

    Unfortunately all the food was underwhelming. Not the same MOFU I remember. The Brussel Sprouts were tough and had the stalks remaining, the pork belly was bland, and the Taiwanese Bolognese just tasted off. However, the beef bulgogi dumplings were amazing. The service was attentive, but everything felt rushed. I am not a complainer by nature, but just felt compelled to give honest feedback. Hope they get back on track because in previous years the food was incredible.

    Everything was good. Flavors were well thought out. Cocktails alone are reasons for coming back. The wings felt a little over cooked despite the flavors being great. The star was the fried wontons though. Ordered kimchi tots which were good too. Waiter brought over the check prior to getting the last drink. I don’t think that was intentional but just odd.

    We went to MOFU Shoppe for our 6-year anniversary, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, especially considering how beautiful and serene the restaurant felt. The Pork and Chive Dumplings and the fried rice were especially good, though my wife really loved the Sweet Chili wings. We also had fantastic service (shout out to An). We liked it so much, we purchased a gift card before leaving so our friends could try it too. I'm glad someone recommended MOFU to me, and I will certainly pass on the favor!
