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.

Unfortunately Moa doesn't satisfy the Annandale-envy that Rockville residents must feel. The place is pleasant enough but the mediocre food and service mean you still must go to Virginia to get a good Korean meal. On a moderately busy Saturday evening, service was friendly (and apologetic) but abysmal. Drinks (from a poorly stocked bar) took 20 minutes to arrive. The... More

Tricky to find, but GPS took us right to it; well worth discovering! We started with barley tea and giant homemade dumplings (mandu) with chili sauce, along with five different types of panchan: kimchi, pickled radish, tofu, shredded squid, and eggplant. Between four people, we shared bibimbap, seafood bibimbap, spicy barbeque pork with noodles, and bulgogi with scallions (cooked at... More

This is a little family run place hidden in an industrial park. The food is classical Korean. Presentation and taste is on the upper end of the dozen or so other Korean places around the country that I have dined at. Main dish, I had the spicy octopus, is accompanied with 5 sides (kimchi, pickled turnip, pickled egg, etc). Everything... More
