Our server was amazing, easy to talk with and has great people skills. We had never been to a Korean bbq and he set us up for a great night. 100% on the top 4 places I’ve been to eat across the United States. My wife and I enjoyed the entire experience.

Our group split a combo of Korean BBQ that was for 2-3 people and added another meat. It ended up being more than we could eat and was delicious

We had a great time! The food, atmosphere, and attention was Top Notch. I would absolutely recommend MOA to all my friends, just take note this is an upscale Korean Restaurant and prices are higher than you would see anywhere else. They also have unique, yummy, signature cocktails that are amazing! We also really enjoy eating Korean at the Columbia, SC location. Enjoy ;)

The only thing I would say is that it would have been nice to have the menu explained to us as first timers there instead of dropped with us and then hurriedly rushed to order. Would probably have ordered differently. Food was good and service was good.

This is a welcomed addition to Charlotte given it is a much higher quality food and service. We had a party of 4 and ordered the combo #5 which is their higher end combo for $199. We were stuffed 80% into it so definitely a large amount of food. the inside is very nice with a 2 level setup and a bit of a darker decoration but very bright lights make it not feel like a cave. The meat cuts were superior and so was the seafood. Scallops were very large. The one thing I thought was a major thing they need to change is how the order in which they cook things (it is full service meaning they grill for you but you can take over if you want) On our visit they cooked meat and richer things before the shrimp and scallops. That is a no no as you want to always serve the milder things first and leave the richer items for last. Next time I will probably either ask them to cook the seafood first or take over.

Moa was delicious! This a fun upscale Korean barbecue restaurant with delicious meat, great drinks, and wonderful service. I’m so glad this is an option in uptown and I can’t wait to go back. I hope to try their lunch menu too.

Had a great time, really neat atmosphere. The owner came over and assisted us in the table side preparation of our meat. The side samplings were endless and overall we really enjoyed our dinner. I must say it was more of and experience then a dinner.

I celebrated my birthday at MOA this weekend and the experience was amazing! The food was delicious, the staff was SO friendly and helpful; it was our first time at a Korean BBQ and they answered all our questions and gave great suggestions. We ordered a combo for 2-3 people but 3-4 people is a more accurate serving size, so I thought it was fairly priced. We were so full that we didn’t order dessert but I feel like we missed out so I’ll order some next time I go!

Excellent choice for dinner. Restaurant is very nicely decorated with modern zen touches. Great Korean BBQ options and excellent ventilation. You will not come out smelling of food like other Korean BBQ places I have been at. Ernest our waiter was very friendly and professional. He was able to explain all the sides and sauces and provided suggestions on each. Very well trainer staff. Will definitely be back. Great option if you want something different and a cultural experience.

Beautiful bar area. Eventually it will be a nice place to have a cocktail but I'd definitely would skip the dinner. The food is below average and when I go out to eat the last thing I want to do is cook.
