The combination of unusual menu, wide variety of beers that I had never heard of before and very tasty food makes for a very enjoyable dining experience. My wife and I have been several times. It is worth making a reservation due to its popularity. Don't be fooled by the strip mall location or the fairly basic decor. This is... More

We came for New Years Eve dinner and it is amazing!! As many of the other reviews say, it's Korean and Cajun although not mixed. It is mostly tapas-like, although they do have a few larger plates available. There were 4 of us and we stayed with tapas primarily, although my son and husband both ordered a medium plate. We...

Sunday afternoon lunch and we decided to try Mokomandy since it was highly recommended by a friend. 12:30pm - not crowded although it was crowded when we left. If you are lucky enough to have Jason as a server, he is amazing! Based on our selection of the appetizers and small plates he guessed we were trying to stay as... More

This restaurant primarily serves tapas style plates. They serve a combination of Cajun and Korean style foods. The servers are quite efficient and flexible about multiple orders. The pot roast sliders are my favorite!

We have been to Mokomandy many times, and it's a favorite place for taking small groups of up to six. Every visit has a new standout favorite! On our first trip, it was the jambalaya. Another time, the fois gras dumplings. Most recently, the snapper in mustard sauce. We have added to our bucket list a desire to get two... More

Fresh and great tasting food! They requested advance notice if we come back due to the challenges from food allergies. I highly recommend this restaurant of you don't have food allergies.
