Went there on the 19th celebrate a birthday with my 5 friends. Of course we made reservations - thank goodness because it was packed. It's a small restaurant that has a big following so reservations are almost always needed. It's a little loud inside, but I'm getting used to that in restaurant design these days. The food was wonderful. My... More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night with my sister and two nieces. The restaurant is in a strip mall but don't let the location fool you. The food is fine-dining quality. We tried some of the snacks such as fried kale and jalapeño hushpuppies - excellent! And we also shared a few menu items (tapas style) like the pot... More

Its small, unassuming, next to a Dunkin Donuts and Subway, amazingly wonderful restaurant with incredible food in Sterling Va. Other writers have said that its a small place and sometimes it is cramped but its in Sterling, Va not in DC where just trying to drive into and out of in all the traffic requires patience and determination not to...

warning: don't sit anywhere near the door as there is no barrier when the door opens to the cold winds. food was flavorful, but small portions. Server was pretentious when we inquired further explanation on one of the dishes, like we were putting him off. $75 with no alcohol for 2 people seemed excessive. Maybe we got them on an... More

We had a great experience at Mokomandy on a weeknight as 3 adults, 2 children and a baby. Don't be fooled by the shopping center neighbors that are fast food chains. This is a unique, culinary experience. The menu has items that are in groups of small, medium, and large servings. Under small, the deviled eggs and platter of 3... More

If you are anywhere close to this place, just go. Expensive and worth every penny. This was our second visit. Wrath Chardonnay was our wine of choice. We had 3 of their small plate starters. Mixed Fries, Jalapeno Hush-Puppies and Korean Cucumber Salad. All awesome, but the hush-puppies got better later. For our main we had the Kobe Carpaccio and... More

The fusion of cajun and Korean is truly unique. You won't find this blend anywhere else in the DC area, that is for sure. Even their specialty cocktails are a treat. Don't be fooled by the shopping center facade, the restaurant is energetic, modern and sleek. They offer many smaller tapas style dishes so it is a great place to... More

The food is unique and creative. The Foie Gras Dumplings are a must try! We also enjoyed the Boudin Balls. There were several things on the menu that we want to try on a future visit. Reservations are necessary, they're only open in the evenings and were very busy the night we went.

The food here is both eclectic and creative. The menu is concise yet offers a wealth of variation. Their "speciality" drinks offer local distillates and are as creative as the food. Mokomandy is truly non-pretentious and is fit for a family - including very small children. Off the top of my head I can think of no other restaurant of... More

Lucky to live right around the corner from this restaurant. This has become our favorite date night place to go. Everything on the menu is delicious and love the fusion of flavors from asian and southern cuisines.
