Good place to eat

This is an out of the way hole in the wall type of place. Lived near the place for years and never even knew it existed. The food is good. They got all the classic korean foods. Prices are ok. The walls could use an update. I like the table and chairs. This isn't a place where English is... read more

We went with another couple and ordered seafood pancakes as appetizer for dinner. Four of us agreed that this dish was wonderful and worthwhile for re-visits in the future.

Watermelon Cocktail Soju and Korean Barbeque Ribs and Steamed Dumplings for an appetizer. It was all so tasty. Service fast and friendly. We only wish we lived here so we could sample the whole menu.

Went after seeing this restaurant featured as one of Washington's 100 best cheap eats in Washingtonian magazine. We had galbi, mandu dumplings and a seafood pancake. We usually go to Lighthouse Tofu for Korean food. The galbi and pancake were good and better than Lighthouse. The mandu was unimpressive. Service was friendly. The biggest negative was the price. Galbi was... More

This is the type of excellent restaurant that will make you feel like a cool local for visiting. Very plain facade, but inside are tastes and smells to make you weep with joy! We had the vege pancake appetizer (could have fed up to four people) and bibimbap. It was so good we ate like it was Thanksgiving, and we... More

I had never heard of this restaurant, but decided to give it a try with a groupon! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a place that you might think driving past since the exterior isn't much to look at, and it is in the middle of an industrial park. Park and walk inside - you'll be... More

This is a good Korean restaurant located on one of the very unglamorous industrial streets behind Rt 355. The food is very good standard fare, including BBQ. You'd never stop even if you were driving on the street. It says Moa but not "Korean", except for the Korean lettering. Korean food is surprisingly hard to find near the Red line... More

Distinctive and subtle flavorings, careful preparation, high quality ingredients across a wide range of dishes. We returned a second time for kimchi/pork dumplings, kalbi bibimbop, and tofu/pork soup. Do not let the location and bare ambiance turn you off; the place is spotlessly clean. Mostly Asian patrons the evening we went is the best testimony that this is the place... More

Went to Moa for the first time last week. As some reviewers say, the area seems very strange for a restaurant, They're located around a lot of light industry. You keep driving thinking "what?" But don't give up; it's worth hanging in! The place is nice enough but certainly not fancy. The service is good; all these Korean women who... More

The food is typical, but nothing to rave about. A good deal for the price. Servers were nice, atmosphere is chill and very low key. Nice place for a grub with friends on a Saturday lunch time type of place.
