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.

Our first experience was as a couple. We enjoyed it so much that we returned with two other couples a few weeks later. The menu is unique so be open to experiment. dishes are Korean or Cajun but not, as they will tell you, a fusion of the two. The small plates allow you to try a variety of dishes... More

Don't let the location fool you. This restaurant is in a strip mall in Sterling that is pretty nondescript. It's where I drop my dog off for boarding. But head towards the back right next to the Tae Kwon Do studio and a couple run of the mill eateries and you will see Mokomandy. Go inside and the decor is... More

Mokomandy is a northern Virginia gem who has a menu of modern Korean and Cajun classics served in a modern "small plate" style. Go with a large group and order 2x smalls per person and 1x medium per couple and be prepared to share. Meal is casual / relaxed and served when each plate is ready. Quality of food is... More

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
