Overview

MOMOFUKU SEIŌBO

David Chang and his restaurants have gained world-wide recognition for its innovative take on food and service, while supporting local, sustainable and responsible farmers and food purveyors. Chang has been called "a chef who went further than any of his peers in wedding serious, sometimes challenging food and an ultra-casual, spontaneous dining ethos in tune with unbound times" (Frank Bruni, former New York Times Restaurant Critic).

Momofuku Seiōbo will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. We will be open on New Year’s Eve serving our regular Tasting Menu for AUD$185pp.

To help you celebrate the end of year, we will also be open for lunch every Friday in December only, serving a 4-course menu for AUD$115pp.
