I've been to this restaurant twice and both times I was blown away by the food. The menu is creative and everything (drinks included) tastes absolutely amazing! This is by far one of my favorite places to eat. The atmosphere also makes it a great place for a date ;) Make sure to get a reservation because this place is... More

Mokomandy is a pleasant surprise to the suburb Sterling. The food is modern Asian fusion, very creative and delicious, unlike what you usually encounter in the area. The wild boar bowl is absolutely a delight, so is the kimchi pancake (a contemporary twist of the traditional Korean pancakes). The service is great as well. I don't personally like the decor...

The ramen buckwheat was very disappointing. $14 dollars for a tiny bowl and it didn't taste good. The shrimp gumbo was tiny and salty. Short rib wasn't substantial but really thin slices bulgogi. The kimchi pancake was mushi. The jambalaya was full of grease. Our beignet and mochi cake was just so-so. Our waiter was very nice and he remember... More

My colleague and I went here while on a business trip to Sterling, and we were extremely happy with our experience at Mokomandy. I definitely agree with the other reviewers. Don't let the description of Korean & Cajun mislead you. The dishes are not strange mixtures of different cuisines, but more like some great Korean dishes or some great Cajun... More

We ran into this place after a company training and couldn't be more happy-combination of Korean and Cajun was very interesting! Staff was very friendly and food was simply AMAZING! Everything was fresh and made to order. We had wine, and multiple appetizers with a main dish. (3 of us) really enjoyed every part of our experience. Definitely, would recommend... More

The bar is very well managed - they make craft cocktails, and they make them quite well. They do add their own twist to things, but are happy to revert to the standard (I think they had something coffeeish in their Sazerac, but they happily excluded that from mine). They also have a good selection of bottle beers, but none... More

Decided to try something new and I could not resist a Korien- Cajun place. The atmosophere is very pleasent and unusual for a strip mall, and the food was excellent. I had the a beef dish which was a lettuce wrap with cabbage, rice and noodles with Bison dumpling as an appietizer, others had jambalaya and a boar pot dish.... More

Sometimes great things do come in small packages. It helps to make reservations because of the small size of the restaurant and bar. The menu has different size dishes, think tapas, but also has full sized dishes. Ask the server about portions. Everyone who has ever waited on us has been so nice and friendly. They not only have good... More

This restaurant is far more sophisticated than the chains that surround us. The best place outside of D.C. for cocktails too!

Creole meets Korean but not with implied fusion. The chef is able to create artistic meals that work well together. The food is carefully prepared using eccentric flavors and style. However, the meals are actually affordable and sized accordingly. This is a great small plates and beverage place that is terrific for couples looking for a night out. The venue... More
