Neighbors and friends have been recommending this restaurant for months; I am very glad we finally made time to meet friends here for dinner. We ate Asian style, sharing every plate, so all four members of our party were able to sample an exciting mix of styles and flavors; every new small plate that arrived had another taste twist that...

I was not sure what Korean Cajun combo would taste like and am still not sure. The combo sounds very intense especially if you like local style Kim Chee and tabasco-y Cajun. If that is what you are looking for you will be disappointed as the food is carefully conceived and quite complex. A table of 6, we sampled many... More

Has refined their menu over time-found what works and what didn't. Would like to see better selection of wines, also my red wine was served too warm.

We loved this restaurant. They offered a casual, clean and modern environment. They provide options in Small, medium and large plates. Very similar to a tapas restaurant. This allowed us to try a wide variety of items and we enjoyed them all. The Scallops were maybe the best that I have ever had. Service was great Go and enjoy this... More

Different and very good. Tasty (spicy but not too hot) flavors in Tapas size dishes. Korean cajun moniker for its food is misleading.

We recently celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at Mokomandy's in Sterling, VA. This is truly a hidden gem in our area. The restaurant is located discreetly in the Great Falls Plaza center. The same is tastefully decorated with clean lines and simple modern stylings. The staff is friendly and professional with just enough casual cool. You order as you feel the... More

We recently visited Mokomandy with a couple of regulars. Not fusion, but both Cajun and Korean specialties. . There's gotta be something you will like to drink as they offer a wide variety of specialty mixes (many created in-house), beers and wines. Be prepared to share dishes with tapas styled portions as well as full plated (or bowled) entrees. We... More

I have eaten here more than a dozen times and I have had some great meals and some ok meals. On average I would say always a 4 out of 5. I would recommend sitting at the bar and talking with the bartenders. Discuss the drinks and what you would like. The drinks are creative and delicious. The menu is... More

Mokomandy specializes in Korean and Cajun dishes, but does not bill itself as a fusion restaurant. The menu and the fare are Tapas style, smaller dishes meant to be "pieced together" and shared. Everyone in our party loved the pot roast sliders, absolutely delicious. The Boar Bowl and the Bul Gogi were also quite good. The drink menu is as... More
