The happy hour is great! I recommend coming here for happy hour as beer is $3 and select cocktails are $4. You can also get a set of 6 Mandu for $4, so this is a pretty good happy hour deal. The mandu were really good. We had 3 steamed shrimp and 3 fried pork/beef dumplings. I give 4 stars to the happy hour. The staff was friendly and the facility is very clean. So the reason why I am giving 2 stars is because: The kimchi was a disgrace, I have never had such bad kimchi in my life. Having lived in South Korea, I am very familiar with what good kimchi taste like. This kimchi was the worst kimchi I have ever tasted. It was just wrong. The small side dishes: like the cabbage kimchi, tofu, cucumber kimchi, etc.. Seemed to have been sitting in a refrigerator for a long time. The cucumber kimchi was dry and tasteless. The bulgogi was average, the beef quality was okay and the sauce was nice. The price of this dish was around $24. The prices are way too expensive for the quality of food. I recommend anyone that wants to have traditional and good Korean meal, go to Annandale, Virginia for great Korean and good prices. You pay for the location and atmosphere at Mandu. Stay for the happy hour.

Mandu's happy hour is among the best deals in the city with dumplings, inexpensive sojutinis, beers and cocktails. Also love that it is offered on weekend.

Mandu is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. I always order the same thing: Dulcet Bibimbap. This is bibimbap in a hot stone bowl. Definitely get it in the stone bowl, it makes the rice crispy. The pork is a little spicy and very delicious, always my top pick. I also enjoy the dumplings to start. The staff at Mandu are all friendly and provide great service. The food comes out very quickly! They also give each table a plate with some tastings of kimchi, vegetables, and tofu. All of it is delicious. Between the great food and service, I always feel that I am getting my monies worth. Last but not least, on my birthday they gave us champagne and dessert on the house! These guys are the best!!

Made a reservation for a Saturday night. The drinks were good (Buleit Rye), the food was great, and the service was prompt and courteous. Love this place!

Outstanding Korean food. The happy hour is great--don't be afraid to try the yogurt Sojutini. The atmosphere is kind of bland so not the most romantic or special of a feeling if you're looking or that. The K Street location is a little nicer though.

Dolsot Bibimbap with tofu and as much hot sauce as you can handle. Plus an order of steamed veggie dumplings. DO IT! You won't regret it, IT'S PHENOMENAL!!. I've never had a hard time getting a table (ranging from parties of 2-6) and the customer service is great.

The Korean brunch is so fun! It includes your choice of marinated beef/pork/chicken/tofu, potatoes, and egg. For dessert, you also get mochi ice cream - yum! I also always enjoy the complimentary small dishes that they serve on the side, which include kimchi, veggies, little fish, gluten, and lots more to sample! I also really enjoyed sitting on the patio, because it meant I could bring my dog with me. The Mandu staff was so nice, and even brought my dog a water bowl, since it was such a hot day!
