  • "This was our third time at Mokomandy, and this time we were celebrating a birthday. The food is just awesome - so inventive, creative and delicious. The wait staff is attentive and super helpful in assisting with foods to try, especially that fit our taste. The bartender is awesome! There are already creative and unique drinks on their menu, but he specifically asked us what we like, then made his own concoction based on what we said. Just wonderful. This is an all-around excellent place to dine and have delicious drinks!"

  • "As long as we can get in! Super duper cocktails. Don't skip the foie gras or the korean scallops."

  • "I live 1.5 miles from Mokomandy and I have been there several times. This place never lets me down. The drinks are always delicious with fresh ingredients. The food is to die for. There is not a bad item on their menu. I went there with a group of friends and had reservations for 8pm. We had to wait while the table before us finished up which was okay because we enjoyed drinks at the bar. You definitely need a reservation because this place is tiny. They just refreshed the menu with new dishes. The korean scallops, pork roast sliders, and bulgolgi are still there which are a few of my favorite dishes."

  • "A fun place. Great food and an imaginative, ever changing menu. Always something new and different to try, and always high quality. Good wine list. Great beer selection. Friendly service."

  • "Mokomandy is a favorite with my family and friends. It's beyond outstanding. The cuisine is superb. The kale chips, cucumbers and pickles were fantastic as always. The fresh fish of the day is a must-have. The ramen soup is heavenly ... the one they had a year ago was the best on the planet! (Please bring back.) Beignets are exquisite and the coffee is great. This is a Madison Avenue-quality restaurant nestled in Potomac Falls. I'd take Mokomandy over any DC restaurant! or the Inn at Little Washington any day!"

  • "This restaurant has it all. Exceptional food, great atmosphere and wonderful service. We drive from Potomac, Md just to come to this restaurant!!"

  • "Second time at this restaurant. My first time was with my husband. This time, I took my mom and girlfriend. Everything was delish! I finally got to try the Wild Boar dish. Beef sliders were even better this time. I requested a table away from the door, since my first visit at the restaurant was in February and the draft from the front door was horrible. They accommodated my request, which I appreciated and got a nice table. My girlfriend from Rome cannot wait to come back at this restaurant when she returns over the holidays. Incredible food. Such great, authentic flavors."

  • "My husband and I have eaten all over NOVA and we would place this experience in our top 3. Absolutely stunning. The menu is inventive and every plate was a treasure on it's own. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who seriously loves food."

  • "Wasn't sure about what to expect after reviewing menu online but restaurant didn't disappoiint. Very unusual dishes but servers were very helpful in guiding us through selections. Also don't miss their cocktails. Since we were new, probably ordered more than we should have but everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Will definitely be back for more!"

  • "This was my 2nd time, went with 4 business colleagues. We had the beer cheese with jerky dip and the 4 guys - all Texans - said the jerky made the trip worthwhile. The fried kale was tasty, tho greasy, the Drago oysters - yum! The boar balls and the Flounder were amazing. Dessert was mixed - the Texans took a picture of the sliver of cheesecake to explain to their friends what 'northerners'' consider a dessert size - but all agreed it was tasty. The pineapple mochi cake was the surprise hit of the course. Beer list, wine list and cocktail menu - very impressive. Service takes this dining experience up to the level of fine dining - counterbalancing the strip mall ambiance. Would definitely recommend for a different, quirky experience."

  • "We are very fortunate to have a gem like Mokomandy in our neighborhood. During our latest dinner outing we started with the grilled oysters and then quickly mowed down the perfectly cooked potroast sliders. We then ordered the ChiMaek (Chicken and beer for two) which was amazing. The two sauces worked equally well solo or paired and the made to order chips were perfectly crispy. We saved room for the chocolate caramel chicory which made a for an exceptionally mellow pairing with the Glenmorangie Lasanta. Our waiter Jason is always knowledgable about the menu and offers ideal pairings for the dishes. We look forward to our next visit."

  • "I wanted to goto brunch so I made a 2:30 brunch time ... Only to recieve a call stating that the kitchen closes at 2:30. Why have a time slot if I ant eat there due to the closing of the kitchen. We get there early around 2:06 order and the food comes out cold and seems as though it's the leftovers from brunch. The service was decent but I would not recommend going to this restuarant for brunch was lackluster at best"

  • "I always enjoy dining here at Mokomandy. Steven was our server, excellent service. Food taste great."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We found the ambiance a bit Spartan but the food, esp. the beef bulghogi, was excellent with an explosion of flavors. Waiters were excellent about explaining the different dishes. Slightly overpriced for the tapas size dishes, but overall a nice change fro ordinary dining."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We ordered and shared three little plates, two small plates and two medium plates between three people-fun food sharing. Nice fresh seared tuna, spicy jalepeno hush puppies and kimchi pancakes. The flounder on hash was the star! Yummy and inventive cocktails. Outstanding service; friendly, knowledgable staff. Busy place, get a reservation!"

  • "Although I had seen the name written up here and there I was so impressed! This place beats out most places in NOVA and DC. The only suggestion would be lighter more true New Orleans style beignets!! I will be back!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "You don't need to go past the small & medium plates to have a great dinner because there are so many wonderful choices. Loved the Pepper Tuna Ssam, Potroast Sliders and Wild Boar Bowl. Most small plates come with 4 pieces, but they happily added another for our party of 4. Wish it wasn't so far from home because I'd like to go back often."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Personable and tremendously helpful attendants. Delectable dishes (best jambalaya I have ever had in my life!) And the drinks are creative and delicious. The kind of place one would want to visit several times a week! TRUELY! Thank you, Mokomandy!"

  • "There is nothing I can say other than: Drop everything and head to Mokomandy. Every single dish we ordered was fantastic, and we ordered about a dozen of them to celebrate our anniversary. Oh, and though they have an extensive wine list, they allow BYOB for a norminal corkage fee. Super service too! Already looking forward to our next visit...and we won't wait for our anniversary next year either!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Mokomandy was a great find, a true culinary delight. The creativity and taste are unique. The menu changes from time to time giving you the opportunity to try new dishes. Staff always helpful with dietary restrictions.. As I am gluten intolerant, it is nice that they have a menu that has gluten free dishes. As a regular diner I don't have to tell them about my allergy, Jason always remembers."

  • "It's close to my house and I could walk there but i'd definitely drive an hour if I had to. The service is always perfect - attentive and never rushed. Love the menu with small medium and large sizes. And the unique food always brings me back for more. Highly recommend Mokomandy."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We had a great experience at Mokomandy's. The service was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very different in a good way! We tried six dishes and it was just right for the four of us. We got to try dishes we had never heard of and loved them at least we ate every thing they sent on our table."

  • "We've been to MokoMancy twice for dinner, sitting at the bar both times. Love watching the bartender make the signature drinks. He answered our questions, walking us through how he makes the drinks. Tappas style was a nice change and added to the experience. Food was a nice mix of portion size and variety--bartender helped us match drinks to our food choices. Overall at great experience and will be coming back with friends and family!"

Exotic, but very yummy food selection. The staff is friendly and very helpful in assisting with menu selections and drink selections too. Great experience - we will definitely go back!"

  • "First time visiting based upon a recommendation. Loved the variety. All of the items that we ordered were excellent. Loved the ability to order multiple different items and in quantities that didn't preclude enjoying additional items. Ordered 3 sides/snacks, 2 smalls, 2 mediums, and 1 dessert. It was the perfect amount for two. The wild boar bowl was great in that it ensured we didn't leave hungry. The combination of items adds up, but the variety and quality, I believe is worth it."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was outstanding. Dumplings with foie gras were incredible as well as the scallops. As odd as the combination of cuisines sounds, MokoMandy makes it work. Order lots of small and medium portions and get a nice variety of tastes. Recommend!"

  • "Mokomandy has a great menu with lots of interesting choices. The food is great, and the servers are knowledgeable. The cocktail menu is outstanding! Try the Weatherman. Just check the spice level on all the dishes as I don't like spicy food but unexpectedly got something very spicy!"
