Chef An met his fiancé in Ambler which led to his decision to open his restaurant there. He is now an Ambler resident. You can catch him around town walking his two dogs, Henry and Louie. He is excited to share his unique approach to Korean food at Mokja and is knowledge of Asian cuisine all together.

Mokja was wonderful as always! This was our second time eating at the restaurant and the food and service is always excellent. The owner caters to gluten free allergies and is so kind. Highly recommend! Will be back soon!
Bulgogi could have had more flavor. Meat was good quality. Overall, very good experience. Crispy tofu delicious.
Food was the highlight- other areas could be better as far as service and ambiance. Loved the fried tofu, French fries and the wings. Bowls are good too. The brussel sprouts had way too much balsamic. The restaurant is small and busy. They do a huge takeout business and the servers were hustling to serve customers in store, while filling takeout orders too. It took a while to get our order taken, but then the food came quickly once we ordered. One of the cooks had his mask down every time I saw him in the window. Something to note if not vaccinated or Covid conscious.
Food was amazing!! Highly recommend
Chef Daniel is very accommodating. Food was great!
Great little neighborhood gem. We had the brussels sprouts, the wings, bimimbop, and the ramen. Everything came out delicious and full of flavor. Will definitely be back.
It was fantastic. I’m a big fan of Korean food and the Chef created a fantastic menu that touched on a little bit of everything. The Korean fried chicken wings were spectacular and the Bibimbap was perfect (I want the bowl that it was served in). The homemade kimchi tasted so good that I wish I had asked for a jar of it. I recommend getting several of the sides along with at least one app and large plate. I can’t wait to go back again.
In for quick lunch and server was attentive without being invasive. Food was good. Would go back.
Great service and amazing food!
Tasty food, friendly staff--Chef and the rest of the staff are careful about allergies, too (always a huge bonus)! We love it here.
Our first time and we loved it!!! Delish food and awesome server :)
We tried Mokja for the first time this past Wednesday Jan 27, 2021. It happened to be Amblers restaurant week as well. Everything was cooked and served to perfection. Kudos to chef Dan and his hardworking crew! We will be back to explore other menu options!
Food was excellent! Just think the atmosphere could use a touch up when we get out of covid. Has a pizzeria take out vibe, can look better for Main Street ambler to dine in.
Amazing food, attentive staff. I will definitely return. The ramen and wings were both epic.
Happened to stumble upon Mokja surfing the internet and am so glad we tried it. We shared the pancake appetizer and enjoyed our ramen and bibimbop entrees. We’ll certainly be back again.
Terrific find in Ambler. Food was outstanding and creative a well as very affordable. We are looking forward to another visit soon. We sat outside and they had heaters placed by each table to keep you warm on a cool night. Service was well-paced, but our server could've been a little more knowledgeable about the menu items. The Brussel Sprouts, Bibimbap and the Philly Cheesesteak Buns were so flavorful. Wish we lived closer to this gem!
Food was great
The chef Dan and the wait staff were very personable and the food was excellent. We ate outside on a chilly evening with the heaters .This is an excellent addition to the neighborhood.
Went here for a new experience and we loved it. We sat outside and the only thing I can say that wasn’t perfect, the sidewalk is not level. Nothing you can do about it but if you are going to byob, the outdoors can be a little tricky to navigate like that.
Food was great, service was great. Can’t wait to try the indoor seating next time.
The food is outstanding here!! We’ve dined outside and have done take-out! Does not disappoint ever. The rice gnocchi with chicken and edamame dumplings are must haves!! Everything is just so good!
Keep in mind this is a fusion restaurant. The presentation of the food is very nice but nothing over the top exciting as far as taste. The restaurant has a cafe \ trendy atmosphere. The waitstaff was young, friendly but inexperienced.
Great local find. Chef made everything perfect, staff is friendly, wonderful locally owned business to support!
We ate from the Korean brunch menu outside on a sunny day. The food was very good and the server was charming. It was all good.
Made reservations for 2:30 on a Sunday, showed up and hostess said they were closed until 5:00. Walked by 3:30 and many people were eating, I guess hostess made mistake since those are the hours on Saturday. Food looked really good, but was disappointed. Hopefully we will be in that area again sometime and try.
They have outdoor seating but it's uneven so you'll be leaning a bit. We ordered all appetizers. Were all pretty good.
We were looking for something a little different. The food was very good, tasty and at a decent price. The outside seating was fine other than the somewhat wobbly tables.
Went their for an early brunch. Food and service by Ellen were excellent Beignets were delicious as was the Korean version of avocado toast!
Incredible experience, awesome food, highly recommend to stop here and eat!
Great food and knowledgeable servers in a beautiful setting. Everything was excellent but be sure to get the Brussels sprouts !
We had an appetizer and two main courses. Each was so good we deliberately paced ourselves so we'd have some to take home and enjoy the next day - which we did!
Food was good for the most part. However, Lettuce wraps were lacking. Wilted romaine lettuce, pork and some rice. Dining room was empty and not very inviting so we sat outside on the sidewalk. Appetizers were very good.
We were the only table at the restaurant (4 adults, 2 kids). Despite having two waitresses the service was bad. We waited for our food for around 45 minutes. The soufflé eggs (we ordered two) were both burned. Pretty sure they are not supposed to be burned. The rice dish I had was dry (nothing worse than dry crunchy rice). The French toast was good, so were the beignets. Bibimbap was good as well. We might give it a shot for dinner, but will not come back for brunch.
So happy we tried it here. Amazing food! Loved trying some new things, everything was fresh and delicious. We came for restaurant weekend which was great because we were able to try a lot of different dishes.
