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).

Really solid restaurant all around. Food's got that extra something, the portions are always exactly right. And the price point is spot on.

Outstanding service, outstanding food, plenty of space between tables, all of the staff was wearing masks and remained an appropriate distance from the customers for any necessary discussions, I’d go back in a heartbeat.

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.

A friend and wanted to try their starters and were not disappointed. The beers on tap were also delicious. If we’re in the area, we’ll be trying the mains.

Love Mandu! Great food and a nice place when you have a larger group of people. Their Happy Hour is also my favorite, especially their Sojutinis and mandu (dumplings).

Overall the experience at Mandu was good. The food was delicious and there was no wait to get a table. I wish they still served mochi and also served coffee for brunch. Was chilly in the same restaurant but nonetheless our experience was wonderful. Will definitely go back for their brunch.

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.

Fabulous! It is rare that I enjoy every bite at every dish tried! We shared three appetizers and everything was truly amazing. My it was my husband’s birthday and he enjoyed their specialty cocktail! They were kind enough to serve him some ice cream with candles for dessert! I would recommend this place for certain!

i love going to Mandu. The food is always amazing. This time I took friends that were first-timers for there. And they loved it too. We were 7 in the group and had 1 sever. She was super alert and friendly. Our wine glasses were always full. The food came out quick too.
