We had an excellent meal at Mandu, introducing our nephew to Korean food. Most dishes were really excellent , including Bibimbop, kalbi, and eggplant with pork belly. The mandu dumplings were also delicious, as well as the kfc chicken wings, However, the vegetable appetizer with acorn and mung bean jelly was disappointing and lacking in flavor. Also, the panchan items were fine but not outstanding. For dessert, the Korean donut was fabulous and we enjoyed the panna cotta with sesame cracker. Service throughout was excellent: attentive, helpful, and friendly. We would certainly return and our nephew and his roommate, who live in DC, plan to add it to their rotation.

Appertizers were ok, fried chicken was pretty good, other appertizers were ok, not great. The main dishes are really subpar. Had much better before.

The portion size fir the duru jjigae is not what it used to be. Not sure if it’s inflation or what but that’s a bit sad as it’s such a yummy dish.

Foods great!

Overall good, they are still taking extreme measures in regards to COVID-19 in a bad way.

Asked to move table slightly due to sun, and the staff denied it mentioning some non-real reason as if it would bring impending doom.

Delicious food, with scrumptious beef/pork and shrimp mandu (dumplings) outshining by far the vegetable mandas.

I always have a spectacular experience at Mandu!! I loved the happy hour before the pandemic started, and I think the restaurant is so spectacular: the food is always delicious, the service is wonderful and I love the decor. Because of all that, I have made a reservation every time I’ve been in Washington DC even during the pandemic. They have made adjustments, which is reflected in my review. There is more noise than usual, because they are only doing outside seating. Also with no happy hour, I do honestly feel the prices are a little on the high side, but that’s to be expected for a large city, and I don’t expect the happy hour deals right now since their volume is so low. Frankly I’d rather pay more during this time to make sure they stay open!

I love the Sojutinis, and their mandu are delicious, But you can’t go wrong with any item on the menu!

I always enjoy bringing first timers to this restaurant and I can’t wait to come back! I’m also looking forward to sitting at the bar again once we have the Nations health crisis under control!

It had some gluten free options and I did not get sick afterwards, which means that they do know how to handle GF food and avoid cross-contamination.
The food was delicious.

The food was fantastic. We ordered the shrimp dumplings, grilled cabbage, chicken wings and the galbi. Each was excellent. We sat outside in the tents they had set up and ate while a storm raged around us.

Excellent, authentic Korean. Wonderful outdoor seating with COVID masking and social distancing. Big bonus: they sell homemade, bottled gochujang so you can take some home with you. Will be back for sure (this was my second visit).
