Wonderful quintessential place

We love come to this place with friends. Awesome drinks and fusion food. Service has always been great except one time on New Year's Eve. Suggest get a dinner reservation earlier than 9:30 pm, otherwise you may feel rushed. Please allow two hours dining experience.

So glad that the food has not suffered with the increased popularity. Our party of 5 enjoyed: cucumber salad, Korean slaw and the kimchi pancakes snacks, the sliders , the boar bowl and the carnivore ssam. All were absolutely delicious. I am Korean and love the creative twists on all of the dishes - if you want traditional Korean, go... More

Mokomandy is a hidden little gem with incredible crafted dishes. The staff was wonderful. We had a superb waiter who really knew their extraordinary dishes. We had a fun time trying the Gator Croquettes, Deviled Eggs, Bison Dumplings, Scallop BLT and the Maryland Crabcake. They were all splendid with incredible fresh flavor. Mokomandy even read my request and were able... More

Don't let it's strip mall location fool you, these dudes know how to prepare high end delights. I had the oysters which were prepared unlike any I have ever had. Great although I would recommend they buy larger oysters and increase the price if they have to. I also had the Cod which was cooked absolutely perfectly and it's served... More

Interesting fusion food. Fantastic wine selection. They had rare Austrian and even Slovenian wines. Phil the bartender was amazing and we didnt move to our tables and just sat at the bar and had our tapas style food. They have a great bone marrow luge! The manager is a som and knows his stuff. Similar to Trummers on Main, it... More

One of the best restaurants in nova. The owner and chef really think about the mene and dishes. The menu changes through the seasons but some things are staples. Like the boar bowl. You must try. The drinks are awesome and the bartender cliff is always great. Reservations, even for the bar are usually needed.

We went to Mokomandy with my boss and his wife. First, the bar service was way above average - they know their stuff and have some tasty house drinks. Our server was very knowledgeable about the diverse menu and offered great suggestions. The food is definitely not mainstream, but then who wants that?

The presentation was fantastic! The food was pretty good overall. Having been to numerous Korean restaurants I expected a little more. Kimchi, cucumbers, etc were not included. Those had to be ordered separately....

This place is one of my favorites, and so lucky to have it as a local restaurant. The chef takes care to plan such a wonderful menu. Every dish that we have had has been excellent. The fact that there are so many small plate dishes lets you sample many different things. I highly recommend Mokomandy (and recommend to make... More

Hands down THE best restaurant in Sterling, VA and quite possibly in northern VA. Here's the set up: You can order different size plates (snack, small, medium, and large) at your convenience throughout your time there. Each section contains different items...there are no duplicates between the sections. Fusion cuisine (some Korean influences) at it's very best, and the menu periodically... More
