As always....excellent service and food/drinks!
Outstanding as always! We are always greeted at the door. Everyone is very friendly. The waitresses, waiters and bartenders know the menu and drinks very well. The drinks are unique - they make many of their own simple syrups. The food is perfectly prepared! Order one food item at a time and share everything you order. This way, you can enjoy the food, drinks and your company, instead of rushing!
Mokomandy does not disappoint. Everything was amazing. Drinks, food, service...it was all on point. We will be back for sure.
Great first experience. Enjoyed our dinner immensely.
This is one of my favorites, food is always great. They offer a unique blend of cuisines that you have to try in order to appreciate it. The bar knows how to mix cocktails and they always have a great mix of offerings for everyone
Superb waitress: knew the menu & had great suggestions. Everything was beautifully prepared & presented. My favorite restaurant in the area.
Love the Moko. Great food, great staff, great value!
Amazing food and service!
Everything was great for our party of 6 except for that the plates all came out at different times and my friend never even got her pancakes until everyone else was almost done with brunch. That was disappointing
Never can go wrong here!
The server, Sky, made our 25th anniversary dinner, an awesome and memorable dinner! The food is always delicious and can't wait to go back again!
The food and service are always fantastic! We come here often and are never disappointed! The employees know the menu and drinks extremely well! They can help you, if you need help. This is a real gem in the neighborhood!
The food was bad. Some dishes were extremely salty. We waited for about an hour for one dish, but the waitress kept telling us it's coming and wanted us to order something else while waiting for that dish.
Great for Brunch. The Eggs Benedict with house-made English muffin, shrimp cake and spicy hollandaise made for a perfect bite. Love the small bites - Kimchi pancakes and kale chips. Offers full menu in addition to their brunch menu.
Love their take on eggs benedict w/shrimpcake. Biscuits and gravy always pleases and the not-your-average bagel + lox was deemed 'fantastic' by our German guest. Service was impeccable as always.
The food was outstanding. For some reason on this particular night service must of been short handed, very slow and not as responsive as previous times.
It’s a really interesting menu but it is hard to navigate to determine what to order. It would be great is it could be better catagorized.
Yet another stellar meal at Mokomandy. As always, food, service, and cocktails were top notch. Thanks for another great experience!
Loved the food but longed for several clean fresh plant based options.
So glad we found this place! Unusual Korean-Cajun flavors, great format with small dishes that could be share (and they happily accommodated our request to add a fourth dumpling -- with adjusted price, of course -- because we were 4). We will go back just for the shaved catfish with great sauce, enormous Korean ribs, and those foie gras dumplings! Only tiny complaint: some dishes were a tad too salty.
We are coming from D.C. and we like to make the trek about once a month. When the food is good, it is outstanding. On our last visit, the food was good overall, but there were some misses. Octopus/Pork belly and jambalaya were fantastic. Cucumber salad and pot roast sliders unfortunately were not as good as we've had in the past.
Our server--Laura--was awesome as usual.
Still one of our favorite restaurants, we wish they could be more consistently great.
Will hi again. Food was exquisite!
Great find in a random location. Recommend the sliders, ssam, dumplings and deviled eggs. Good selection of cocktails and beer/wine
As always, impeccable service from Laura. Food was very good, tasty and terrific value.
really interesting food, presentation of food, excellent service, and value for the money. The service was superb. Even though it was a 30 minute drive in only light traffic, we'll be back.
Loved the ambiance and our server Laura! Food was good but definitely expected more out of some dishes. Drinks and desserts amazing!
What a great experience and extremely good food! I love this place.
Mokomandy is a favorite of all my family - especially my 18 yr old grandson,. Matt. My daughter and Matt were driving through VA on their way north to settle in my grandson for his first year in college. Where else to celebrate but Mokomandy?!!!! As always the dinner was great and the service was perfect. Thanks!
Our server Skye was wonderful. She made us feel right at home and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommended.
One of the best restaurants I have tried in some months. The food is very interesting with wonderful flavors. The option of small plates lets you try many dishes. I can't wait to return and sample more of their interesting menu. The lettuce wraps were a treat. Modern décor and ambience. Staff were helpful in navigating their wonderful menu. Love it !!
Took a drive out from Arlington based on the reviews I'd seen. I wasn't disappointed. The location is a little odd, as you wouldn't expect such a culinary experience in the middle of a strip mall, but don't be fooled. The place is not very big, has a pretty casual appearance, and is buzzing during dinner time, but the main attraction is the food. It's surprising that a combination of Korean and Cajun (not fusion, mind you; just both cuisines) can work so well together, but they do. Everything we tried was excellent, from small and medium plates to cocktails. The only sad part was that we couldn't order everything on the menu. We'll definitely be back.
Outstanding as usual! Our favorite restaurant!
Excellent food that would not be out of place in any major downtown area, let alone a strip mall in the suburbs. Wonderfully creative, but the quality has slipped a tiny bit in the past year imo.
Our first time, but we will be back! Cocktails are adventurous, food was unique and tasty, service was A+!
Fun for our lively birthday group!
Love the food and great service!! So far it's one of our favorite restaurants!!
We have liked this place from its start. The food has only gotten better and the service is consistently superior. We saw them on Check Please and it was a great experience to see them do well. We were around when they started and have only gotten better.
Mokomandy is a restaurant you visit to enjoy remarkable food with family and friends, and this last visit was no exception with great food from start to finish. Laura, our server, was amazing, making the meal all the better. Wish they had more space because it's loud when they've got a full house.
Best restaurant in the DC area! The variations on Korean and New Orleans fusion must be experienced, and don't forget to try the Pork Belly and Octopus skewers!
Horrible experience! Poor quality food, overpriced wine, noise and dirty place, flies around my table!
