Delicious find!

Who would guess that this gem is nestled in a strip shopping center? Amazing. We had the Korean pot roast sliders, Chicken Ssam, & foie gras dumplings. They were delicious.

Place is good. Pretty pricey but different so on occasion it's worth it. Give it a try. Great brunch

Everything is perfect about this place - the size of the restaurant, the service/staff, the drinks, the atmosphere, but mostly, it's all about the food. An exceptionally creative menu that changes on a regular basis so you're always exposed to something new and delicious. It's a very 'approachable' place too - which is not a common thing once you've established... More

We tried this based on recommendations, and were so glad we did. It was easily one of the best dining experiences anywhere. They were busy but we found seats at the bar which may have been a blessing in disguise - the bartender was very helpful and truly honest about what dishes he would and would not recommend for us....

Found this unique place on Trip Advisor and it is very near our home! Never knew it was there. We loved it! Food was creative, unique and full of flavor. Service was personal and excellent. We will be back many more times to try all of the dishes - had a hard time narrowing it down on our first visit.... More

This place was awesome. Definitely a unique experience. If you are into different food combinations then you found the right spot. I sat at the bar to get quick seating. Bartender was really jovial. She introduced herself and was very knowledgably about the menu. I would definitely go back here. And recommend trying it.

Cute, unique gem in Potomac Falls! The food is great - the small plates are perfect to share so that you can try so many different things. the bottled beer selection is awesome and every waiter we have had is friendly and attentive. Sitting at the bar has also always been a great experience.

We finally made it to Mokomandy after hearing many recommendations from friends. I had not expected to see a place like this in Sterling! It's very trendy, has a contemporary vibe and great service. The host and our server were very attentive and professional. They gave great food recommendations and refilled out water and tea just in time we needed... More

We continue to enjoy the high quality and creative menu, and the excellent service. We have never been disappointed and we have tried over half of the menu. Excellent choice.

If you are the type of person who can hold two disparate thoughts, of equal weight and importance, in your head at the same time, you will appreciate Mokomandy. Billed as a crossroads between cajun and Korean food, Mokomandy is faithful to both, without being slavishly so. But its diners are the beneficiaries of this balancing act. We started with... More
