Delicious food - not fusion as our waiter said - korean and cajun dishes. Great service! A wonderful place for an anniversary that is not too expensive and special.

Once again proves to be one of the absolute best restaurants in the entire DC metro area. So sophisticated yet they maintain a relaxed feel and unpretentious attitude.

The food is always amazing! It arrives at your table at the perfect temperature. The flavors pop! Do not order everything at one time. Order a dish and share everything! Then order another dish and continue to enjoy! The service can’t be beat! The beverages are unique and fresh! They make their own simple syrups. Very creative beverages. We have never been disappointed!

Only hiccup was our table was not ready for our reservation. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Hostess was very pleasant and apologetic that the 5able was not yet open. Food is great. Not a huge place so make a reservation

Fun food that makes you eat outside the bento box. Service was very helpful, cocktails delicious. Don’t skip the cold coffee cocktail for dessert with the chickory pudding.
Thanks to Laura and Chelsea.
I was kind of surprised to see staff chewing gum but we can’t wait to return.
Jambalaya was great, catfish different preparation and delicious.

We always love going to Mokomandy. The food is fantastic with options for all sorts of tastes, the drinks (alcoholic and non) are delicious, the staff is all lovely and knowledgeable. As the restaurant gets busier it definitely gets louder but it never feels obnoxiously loud. Such a fun mix of foods. The pork belly and octopus skewers were absolutely astounding. All of the flavors of each dish always were so well balanced and didn’t overwhelm other dishes. Dessert is a must. I have been to Mokomandy about 5 times over the last few years and have never had anything negative to say. The quality of food, drink, and staff is very high and consistent even over long periods of time.

Overall good experience. There were some issues with some items not coming out at all. Seemed like there weren’t enough servers to handle the capacity of the restaurant.

My husband and I loved your food. The service is also outstanding.
We have been traveling extensively and are basically somewhat spoiled, but your food was right on top with the "better" dishes that we we have eaten internationally.
The only drawback my husband feels, is the noise level. Some soundproofing might be
advisable.

The brunch was really good I ordered biscuits and gravy and my husband had the French toast
But I did order the shaved catfish which is my favorite was not so good . The fish was not cut in portion size and was very salty.
Loved the coffee
Other than the fish I enjoyed our meal

Definitely will be going back to Mokomandy. Every dish was fabulous and full of flavor. The service was a bit slow, but we didn’t mind as we were busy chatting and catching up with friends. If you like to your food to be paced out and not speedy then you’ll enjoy Mokomandy. Drinks were also delicious. Prices are a little steep for the portion sizes you get but the quality and flavor makes up for that. It’s a small restaurant in a shopping center.

Nice place, great atmosphere, great food choice, all good. Only issue was the barmaid. Ordered a Martini, which came back tasting like it had been the water used to hold flowers. Our server explained that they use a vermouth that is floral....., eh, we’ll, maybe don’t use that? Worst Martini ever, however, he fixed it, I got my Martini. Wife ordered a red sangria, but got a white sangria, barmaid explained that she ordered a white sangria, not the case, but she would make a red one and wife could sip the white one until it is ready.......it never came. In short, everything great except the drinks. We will certainly go back, great place, this was just the experience this time.
