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

Korean meets Creole in a very inventive way. Not only is the menu awesome, but the drink menu is equally super. Cocktails recommended. This place always seems to be packed, and with good reason. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation you won't be disappointed.

This place is amazing!!! Cajun and Japanese, but not fusion. Food is great and you have the option of sharing plates or have your own entre sized plate. I recommend sharing so you can try more of the amazing dishes. Price are normal. Great place that is out of the ordinary.

In the burbs you need a refuge - and this is as good as it gets. Small, great decor, good bartenders and specialty drinks, and amazing food! How can you not like cajun/korean food? It rocks! The place has a number of fun "specialty" cocktails, but tonight we had bourbon. Great deal on doubles - and then we slid into... More

These folks know how to run a restaurants, and they have the food and service to make it perfect. Handmade cocktails with only the freshest ingredients. They may take a few minutes, but wow, if you like creative mixology, these are so good. Jason is one of the best servers around, professional, pleasant, remembers us always - we live 40... More

The food and service are really excellent. I only give fives for mind blowing experiences. This place offers a completely different take on Korean food - and the mixed drinks and beer list are awesome! Good place off the beaten track.
