A Consistently Awesome Experience

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.

I love the creativity of this place: Korean sliders, bulgogi beef, ssam are all amazing. Worthy of any great restaurant in DC or NYC. But the bar is even better of which bees in the garden is my current favorite drink. What amazing cocktails! And they like the menu items change seasonally. Always a new favorite surprise! There is nothing... More

We arrived and were told that there was only space at the bar. This turned out to be a blessing as the bartender Phil was friendly, informative and made some amazing drinks for us. The place is very trendy and is a mix of Korean and Cajun, based on the owner's background. We tried the Bulgogi, Wild Boar with Duck... More

Our family tradition for my daughter's birthday is to try one of the top restaurants in the Washington DC area, as rated in a local magazine's annual survey, every year. This year we chose Mokomandy, simply based upon it location and inclusion on the list of top restaurants. The menu has a good variety, and I strongly suggest getting several... More

We live near Mokomandy so we give them a ton of business. I also take my family here when they visit, my friends, I buy gift cards here. But I'm done. We were there for brunch, we ordered our usual unlimited mimosas, and 3 or 4 brunch menu items. One item I ordered (can't remember the name) was so salty.... More

This amazing restaurant is located in a shopping center, but don't let that fool you! Do not miss the opportunity to experience this little gem. I can't rave enough about this place. They offer snack, small, medium, and large plates, so you're not stuck eating an entrée, you can sample many different kinds of dishes at a very fair price... More

I love going to Mokomandy - especially for special events like my birthday or anniversary. It can be pricy, but the food and experience are amazing. Great and unusual mixed drinks too. It's definitely worth the drive out to Sterling/Lowes Island. Since the restaurant is popular, reservations are a must.

Mokomandy's is a jewel found in a small "plaza" along Algonkian Parkway in the Lowes Island area of Cascades. If you plan on dining on a weekend, it is best to call ahead for reservations or plan on waiting or maybe catching a seat at the bar. The drinks are worth the wait and the food is so interesting and... More

I visited this restaurant again and had a great experience. We went on a Saturday night when the restaurant was packed but we called ahead and got a table right away. We tried the Carnivore, jambalaya, and the Dry aged steak. The jambalaya was sensational as always, the carnivore sensational, the steak a little on the dry side (just slightly... More
