The food and service were great. Loved the veggie dumplings! Everyone in our group had something that they enjoyed. 2 folks had cocktails and loved them also. Try the mango juice!

Foods great!

Overall good, they are still taking extreme measures in regards to COVID-19 in a bad way.

Asked to move table slightly due to sun, and the staff denied it mentioning some non-real reason as if it would bring impending doom.

Although they only have outdoor seating at the moment, the service was gracious and knowledgable. The food was amazing! The savory porridge appetizer and the vegetable mandu were standouts.

Delicious food, with scrumptious beef/pork and shrimp mandu (dumplings) outshining by far the vegetable mandas.

I always have a spectacular experience at Mandu!! I loved the happy hour before the pandemic started, and I think the restaurant is so spectacular: the food is always delicious, the service is wonderful and I love the decor. Because of all that, I have made a reservation every time I’ve been in Washington DC even during the pandemic. They have made adjustments, which is reflected in my review. There is more noise than usual, because they are only doing outside seating. Also with no happy hour, I do honestly feel the prices are a little on the high side, but that’s to be expected for a large city, and I don’t expect the happy hour deals right now since their volume is so low. Frankly I’d rather pay more during this time to make sure they stay open!

I love the Sojutinis, and their mandu are delicious, But you can’t go wrong with any item on the menu!

I always enjoy bringing first timers to this restaurant and I can’t wait to come back! I’m also looking forward to sitting at the bar again once we have the Nations health crisis under control!

It had some gluten free options and I did not get sick afterwards, which means that they do know how to handle GF food and avoid cross-contamination.
The food was delicious.

The food was fantastic. We ordered the shrimp dumplings, grilled cabbage, chicken wings and the galbi. Each was excellent. We sat outside in the tents they had set up and ate while a storm raged around us.

Excellent, authentic Korean. Wonderful outdoor seating with COVID masking and social distancing. Big bonus: they sell homemade, bottled gochujang so you can take some home with you. Will be back for sure (this was my second visit).

Wonderful Korean dining with my fiancée on Valentine’s Day. The menu offered a great execution of Korean classics and Korean-American interpretations of dishes for less adventurous diners.

Very loud, some tables around us basically yelling at each other. The chicken wings app was SO GOOOD! The chicken noodle soup and Mandu were pretty bland, not that tasty. On a positive note, everything came out very hot and quickly! Not sure if it was an off night for the food, as this was our first visit.
