    I was having Korean in-laws visiting and called the restaurant the day before to see if someone who speaks Korean will be working the night of the reservation. I was told "yes" but it turned out that was not true and the menus of this Korean restaurant were not in Korean. I speak little Korean but was showed an app to get it translated finally. Other than that, food was fantastic and our relatives enjoyed it too!

    Soondubu and kimchi jjigae were ok, but pajon was so disappointing. This restaurant claims to serve Korean food, But I would avoid going to this restaurant, if I want to have Korean food.

    We need planned a special meal to celebrate our anniversary and Mandu did not disappoint! Ambience, service and food were excellent - if you love Korean good definitely give this place a go!!! We loved the haemul pajeon (해물파전) for our Appetizer and tried the excellent house-made Ginger Beer…

    The Korean food was mildly flavored compared to other truly Korean restaurants we have frequented. Mandu has a good looking interior with excellent attentive service but the food quality seems like it is aimed at a non-Korean clientele.

    Disappointing for the price. Bulgogi was good, not great…which it should be for $35. Mandu and even the kimchi were below average. Interior was clean and roomy, but looked tired and in need of paint and a refresh. Music was good, but a bit loud. Overall not bad, but definitely not worth the price.
