Best fresh juices around. Plenty of items for any meal. Good options for veggie/vegan. American classics and Asian flair dishes. Homey if a little sad ambience. Always busy. Expect a wait. Never disappoints.

Mark's is quintessential Takoma Park; a family favorite with tons of options for vegetarians, vegans and conscious omnivores. Mark himself often comes in, supervises and says hello to the regulars. It's a very sweet TkPk tradition.

Marks Kitchen has a lot of good well prepared food to choose from. The service was fantastic and the food came hot and ready to eat. I would call it comfort food, Takoma Park style!

Ordered online. Food was ready too early, and wasn't anything special. No flavor, could hardly describe it as Korean.

Got take out lunch from Mark's. Mark was very kind. Loved selection of sweets and snacks at the counter. Salads were excellent/fresh. Veggie pancakes (GF) were yummy.

I've been going to Mark's kitchen for years now - They have great food to satisfy people looking for "simple" American-style options and a lot of Korean options for dinner as well. Very friendly service - community oriented.

We have been eating there since the week it opened. Good food, reasonably priced, "Takoma Park relaxed" service... you never know who your server is because different people keep showing up. It's not fancy at all and you will sit very close to your neighbors...More
