Great spot in Sterling to have a DC dining experience. Quality food, excellent bar service, and personable staff. The fusion of southern & Asian cuisine is delicious. Perfect for a night out with the girls, friends, or date night.

This seems like a place where you might want to share menu items. There are a few large plates, but mainly medium and small plates. Since I was dining alone, I tried the Jalapeño hush puppies and the shrimp and grits. Both were very good. I did find that the menu items did seem to be separated into Cajun or... More

This improbable Korean-Cajun/Creole restaurant is another 'small plates' restaurant which doesn't appeal to everyone. It has an imaginative menu with some fairly exotic combinations which don't always work. It also has a good wine list and is popular on wknds. What is a little disconcerting is that the plates come to the table when they are ready, so it's not... More

This restaurant is always packed, so be sure to make reservations! The reason it's always packed is because the food is excellent and the drinks are amazing! Yes, the drinks are pricey, but totally worth it! Love the atmosphere as well.

Love the ability to have two very different cuisines in one location. The desserts were beautifully presented and tasted even better.

Mokomandy is located in a strip retail center off the Algonkian Parkway. Not easy to find, but worth the search! As our server stated, the menue is not a "fusion" of Cajun and Korean, but creative takes on each cuisine. I think it is more appropriately "fission". We thoroughly enjoyed partaking from each influence, with are favorites being the Jamabalya... More

The food, drinks, and service here is outstanding. I'm eager to go back to try other dishes. We had 3 small plates and a medium one and that was more than enough for 2.

Chosen by my daughter in law gave us the opportunity to have a different and excellent lunch. Very interesting menu with meals in three sizes. The personal was very knowledge on what the place offers. They made a special effort to provide a garlic free meal for somebody in our group that can not have it, Thank you!!!

Hip and lively place in strange area close to IAD. Bartender and service was great. Food was ecellent and always unexpected in terms of presentation and taste. I have been in a few Korean grills in Arlington and this was a modern twist of it, Had a great time with good food and wine.

Thank Mike B
