I enjoyed the food. I thought is was good and a good value. My friends who have not eaten Korean before liked it too.
Food was delicious and service was fantastic! Our waitress was very courteous and enthusiastic about Mandu which actually helped put us in a comfortable and positive mindset. Highly recommend this place and will definitely be back.
Everything was so good!! I definitely recommend the vegetable dumplings, fried. Delicious!
Great happy hour (drinks and dumplings $5). The vegetable and pork & beef dumplings were really good and sojutinis were delicious.
Overall Mandu was a great way to try pretty authentic Korean food, and it was delicious!
Excellent food and service
Great service. Great food. Love eating there! And vegan friendly!!
Great place for Korean food in D.C. Recommend San-Jeok, Mixed Green Salad Apps. Wine list is okay. Entrees Dduk Bo Gi, Yache Gui, Galbi. Soups: Yookgejang or Soon Doo boo are also quite good.
Delicious plentiful variety of food and great service!
Great food! Went on a Friday evening, early, so Happy Hour was in full throttle. I have never been to Mandu when it was this raucous. I have been to this location at least 4 other times. It was so loud I could not hear the people I was dining with.
As always food and service were great. I would suggest not going at 6:30 on a Friday evening though.
Mandy was delicious as always so glad to enjoy a meal there!
Love the mandu and dolsot bibim bap here (the hot stone bowl is absolutely worth the extra dollar). This is also one of my favorite happy hour places.
Food is excellent! And setvice is more excellent! Enjoy your meal at here~^^
Had a table on their upper level. This allowed for a more quiet dinner if that is what you are looking for. Our server was incredibly helpful, kind, and service was always delivered quickly. The happy hour deals were good and the appetizer dumplings were delicious. Entrees were brought out quickly and they were delicious. They make excellent kimchi that wasn't as hot as I'd come to expect, but delicious nonetheless. My guest had higher praise for their entree than the high praise I had for mine. Overall a great experience and looking forward to going again.
Our waiter was definitely overbooked due to low staff so service was rather slow, but he managed to balance it all and make us feel valued.
Terrific food and drinks. Great spot just a little away from Penn Quarter chaos
Good authentic Korean food, and warm, excellent service.
I’ve been to Mandu several times over the past few years and the food and service are always consistently great.
Fun waitress and the happy hour dumplings are a great deal and extremely tasty! All the food here is great! Not quite the authentic Korean bbq but a great restaurant nonetheless
Great food and great service and prices.
Food is consistently great, service is always good. One of my go to spots and their happy hour only adds to its good value.
They need to figure their service out. The restaurant was not crowded, but our host didn't take our order within 15 minutes of sitting. We had to leave. Obvious it was going to be a three-hour lunch, based on their service speed and quality.
We had a great time here - the food, service, and ambience were amazing. It added to a wonderful cozy night of conversation with good friends.
There were flies circling our table all evening. This is the second time I’ve had this experience. It really makes the meal unpleasant. The food is great, the service is wonderful and it’s very reasonably priced. If they could just fix the bug issue, they’d be a home run.
The food was great, but pretty overpriced for Korean BBQ. Great service, seated quickly. House wine was expensive and sub par. Would go again for their brunch special, though! It looks amazing.
We had been looking for good Korean food in DC and Mandu hit the spot. Nice level of spice in the food and a knowledgeable server who took pride in knowing the dishes on the menu and explaining very thoroughly the techniques used in preparation. Good selection of cocktails also. Recommended.
Food was great as usual!
This place never disappoints! Outstanding service and food
Pleasantly surprised by the menu options...everything was so flavorful and absolutely delectable
Great food! Authentic Korean food, nice atmosphere, good service, although it took a very long time for our plates to be cleared and our check to be brought after we had finished eating. Loved the Chap Chea!
Very good and not very much expensive
The service at this establishment is wonderfully attentive and understands their menu with expertise. Highly recommended.
Mandu happy hour is my favorite spot in the whole city! The bibimbop in the hot stone bowl, the dumplings, and the cocktails are all amazing. Brian is usually our server when we sit on the patio and he makes our dining experience perfect every time!
Great food and even better service. Wait staff is friendlier and more attentive than most higher priced restaurants in DC.
Great food and great service!!! Staff provided perfect recommendations. Would recommend to those on the fence of spicy /adventurous foods. It's not bad at all
Don't miss the happy hour sojutinis and mandu!! The mandu alone is worth the cab fare! It was just as crunchy & delicious as the street vendors in Seoul!
My husband had the bul go gi. He was a little confused by the presentation, but I reminded him that the leaves are customary - just not always included when you get it at other restaurants. It was different for the veggies to come on the hot plate with the meat, but he enjoyed them.
I had the vegetarian dduk bok gi. The flavor was sweet and spicy but not so spicy that you couldn't tell what you were eating. The mushrooms & noodles were perfect! I would have liked some more vegetables (maybe carrots & cabbage), but that's just a personal preference.
The ban chan was a little blander than I like, but again - that's a personal preference. The way it was seasoned would be perfect for someone that hadn't tried it before.
The service was attentive and we'll timed. I will definitely be back when I'm in DC.
The severs were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious.
