About Momofuku Seiōbo

Since opening in 2011, Seiōbo has become one of the most unique dining experiences in Australia. Led by Executive Chef Paul Carmichael and General Manager Kylie Javier Ashton, the restaurant has become a place that hopes to transport its guests, combining the flavours of the Caribbean with the best Australian produce.
