Walking into this restaraunt is always such a wonderful surprise, a metropolitan vibe in a random strip mall. The food is amazing and the waiters are really into craft beers and give great recommendations. The food is Cajun OR korean, not fused together. The small plates are a great bet with a group, giving you a chance to try many... More

This restaurant is a Korean/Cajun mix and good. We had the jalapeno hush puppies (ok but filling), kimchi (not my fav), veggies lettuce cups (good), house made noodles (good), beef with veggies (very good), kimchi pancakes (OK) and shrimp and grits (very good). This is small plate dining. I am glad we had the experience. The wait staff was helpful... More

This is a tiny place in a strip mall but has a great chef. The food is creative and delicious! We tried several things since we had never been and got it to go. Every single thing was outstanding. I asked the server what the best things were and also ordered what I was craving.

An Asian/Cajun menu is well done. You can order things in small, medium and large plates. The waitstaff is helpful in making recommendations and portions. Good wine list and bar offerings. This place is not big but worth a trip. Call ahead for seating or a reservation if you can. Only go with folks that like to share and be... More

I was pleasantly surprised by Mokomandy, not really knowing how a Korean / Cajun Restaurant would turn out, but the food was amazing, the service very attentive, and, in the end, I would most certainly eat there again.

This place never advertises but it always packed. The food is great, really things that I wouldn't have thought went well together. If you want something different, this is your place. The staff are awesome, really help you with the menu and are very kind and courteous. Who knew what Korean-Haitian-Creole fusion tastes like - its all good. I recommend... More

We love come to this place with friends. Awesome drinks and fusion food. Service has always been great except one time on New Year's Eve. Suggest get a dinner reservation earlier than 9:30 pm, otherwise you may feel rushed. Please allow two hours dining experience.

So glad that the food has not suffered with the increased popularity. Our party of 5 enjoyed: cucumber salad, Korean slaw and the kimchi pancakes snacks, the sliders , the boar bowl and the carnivore ssam. All were absolutely delicious. I am Korean and love the creative twists on all of the dishes - if you want traditional Korean, go... More

Mokomandy is a hidden little gem with incredible crafted dishes. The staff was wonderful. We had a superb waiter who really knew their extraordinary dishes. We had a fun time trying the Gator Croquettes, Deviled Eggs, Bison Dumplings, Scallop BLT and the Maryland Crabcake. They were all splendid with incredible fresh flavor. Mokomandy even read my request and were able... More

Don't let it's strip mall location fool you, these dudes know how to prepare high end delights. I had the oysters which were prepared unlike any I have ever had. Great although I would recommend they buy larger oysters and increase the price if they have to. I also had the Cod which was cooked absolutely perfectly and it's served... More
