Clean taste of home-cooked meal. Not-so-great service. The good: Main entrees were delicious; the entire table enjoyed their meal. The food was not too salty, clean and the taste of authentic Korean food. The bad: The service was sub par. I went for a lunch business meeting; although there were only two other tables of customers, the rest of the restaurant was not set up and we had to wait awhile to be seated. When we finally sat, there was a strand of hair on my coworker's dish. The waitress apologized but the rest of the service wasn't exceptional. The side dishes were also a bit eclectic. I'd recommend for the food, but not for an experience.

We sat outside and had our Korean friend explain to us what we were eating. We had galbi dolsot, bulgogi, dduk bok gi and pa jeon. Pa jeon was my favorite.

Mandu is not an authentic Korean restaurant and that's what makes it great. Simple menu with classic Korean dishes prepared well and reasonably priced. I've been a few times and the service can be hit or miss but they have tasty food, great happy hour options and a relaxed atmosphere. Sure there are much more authentic and better Korean restaurants but who wants to drive all the way out to Annandale? Mandu gets the job done.

poor service. bland food. Side dishes tasted like they were two weeks old. Overpriced. Oh yeah, and the entrees were way too salty like they were cured in salt to keep the food from spoilage. Portion size lacked. We went and had another meal immediately after leaving. Asked the server for kkakdugi and the server looked at me and said "Is that a sauce?" BTW.They have no kkakdugi.

The food was an explosion of flavors. Gotta the dduk and it was actually spicy but also tasty. Best bloody mary i have had. Service was outstanding.
