We were looking for something different, and we really found it here! The food was delicious, we has three "half entrees". I really liked the game grill, and my wife enjoyed the scallops over sweet potato pancakes. We then both enjoyed the flounder. Truth be told, we had more food than we needed, and we paid too much, too. But... More

The kimchi pancakes, sliders and meatloaf were delicious! Impressive drink list too. Wasn't very impressed with some of the other dishes like the carpaccio, cucumber salad, and deviled eggs. However, we will definitely go back to try other dishes. Friendly service and inviting modern decor made for a nice evening.

Being a resident of the suburbs can make life difficult. Unless of course Wendys, Subway and Glory Days are your Saturday nite faves! We searched TA, Mokomandy was #3. called in the afternoon, we were able to get a 7pm reservation. When we arrived the Hostess tried to seat us at the table beside the door. A space heater next...

First time visit to Mokomandy - and we will be back! Everything from the service to the amazing and unique cocktails to the outstanding food was memorable. Even my 15 year old son loved it (he was partial to the Korean pot roast sliders - and I must concur they were amazing). Also had the handmade boudin, the tuna ssam,... More

This is a restaurant worthy of Georgetown or Alexandria--a gem you rarely find out here in suburbia. The food is interesting, well presented, and a delight to the palette! The cocktails are also divine. The ambiance is terrific, and the waitstaff is knowledgeable and helpful. I've even approached the restaurant about a corporate event and they couldn't have been more... More

This is my second review, but I have visited Mokomandy's many times since the first, and am always pleased with the food, the ambiance, and the service. It is getting harder to get a table at this popular restaurant, so when we choose to go with our group of six, we picked an early time (6:00) on a weeknight. It... More

This restaurant was great to take the wife to. Make sure you get the kimchi, fried kale chips, boar bowl, deviled eggs, and sliders. They also have a great selection of beer and wine, including large format beers. Will go again!

Really interesting and different food, very good and imaginative cocktails, and extensive wine and beer selection. Off the beaten track is not how it sounds, but it is in a strip mall several miles off Route 7. You would not expect to find a restaurant like this next to the local martial arts studio, Subway, Papa Johns, etc. If I... More

Mokomandy is truly one of the finest restaurants you will find anywhere in the DC metro area. Daniel, the executive chef creates all the ingredients for his dishes right on there on site and using his incredible imagination to prepare each dish. If you haven't been and you are a foodie, you should go. They have a good bar as... More
